  1. Allow grouping of photos/stories under a heading

    Make it possible to create a heading, e.g. Freddie's First Christmas or Trip to the Seaside, and then make groups of photos/stories appear under the heading.

      Hey Alexandra! Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the delayed response. The team talk about this concept a lot – it idea of being able introduce ‘chapters’ or ‘phases’ to the timeline. We don’t yet have any fixed plans to implement this but will be doing a lot more thinking in this area.

      It would be nice to have the option of creating albums, which would be a way to organize some picture into sets of common topics.

        Hi, Patrice! So sorry for the delay in responding.

        We are planning a better system with tagging which will enable you to do exactly this. We will update you when we have more information.

        Thanks, and have a great day!

          Hi Samantha! We cannot wait to add Flashbacks (slideshow’s new name) to Android. We plan to start building this function into the app this coming quarter. Thanks for the feedback! Ed

        • Give the ability to make some pics/videos private.

          I guess it seems to defeat the purpose is you're using this awesome app to share pics/videos with family and friends. But I also like to be able to store all the pics/videos in one place. Some pics I may not necessarily want to share with everyone that can view the timeline so the option to make some pics/videos private would be great! Either way, I LOVE LifeCake!

          • Photoframe Integration

            I recently purchased a Pix-Star Wifi photo frame for all of my family members. The beauty of the frame is that it can automatically receive updates to the frame but having the photos sent to an email address. I find that when I post to Lifecake, I often have to separately email the photos to updates the frame. It would be wonderful if posted photos could emailed and "reflected" to an address attached to a family member. It would be amazing to add this integration or suggest a way I could receive updates to a photo frame. Alternatively, if Lifecake…

              Hi, Josh! So sorry that there was a delay in responding to your suggestion.

              We’re looking into how we can enable customers to integrate into photoframes in a simple way. And we’ll update in here when we know more.

              In terms of Dropbox, you can actually import from Dropbox on your computer browser, iPhone/iPad or Android in the Lifecake app. It’s an option when you click or tap on +. Just let us know if you have any issues with this.

              Have a great day!

            • Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

              Hi!
              I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
              I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

                Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

                We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

                And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

                Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

              • Allow Video Share

                We have options to share pictures or download them back to our phone but our videos have zero options. Once we upload them to your site, we can't do anything with them. Can you add a share to Facebook or YouTube feature or even download back to our phone? I'm using life cake as storage and have found that I can't get any of the video back to my phone to share with people that don't have a life cake account. Thank you!

                  Hi, Tammie! So sorry for the delay in responding to this.

                  To download videos, you can download all your original photos and videos via the ‘Download all’ option in Settings on our Website. Just so you know.

                  But we will look at downloading individual videos and get back to you!

                • Photo Editing

                  It would be great if there was a built in photo editor to add things such as filters and maybe stickers, a lot of companies charge for stickers so you could have a set free sticker pack and charge for other premium ones.

                  It would be great to just be able to make small edits to photo's and then upload within the app itself rather than editing them in another app and then saving them and then uploading them, it would also free up space on devices...

                    Hey Nick! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking into our options to offer basic photo editing within our apps and from our web – it is definitely something we want to do.

                    I’d love to know how you (and others) would like to use stickers. What type of stickers would you be most interested in?

                    • Make it possible to choose the order of photos taken on the same date.

                      At the moment you can't choose the order of photos taken on the same day, which is a pain. This would be a helpful improvement!

                        Would your ideal scenario be that you can drag a photo to be the main one featured that day and then have the rest of the family see the same thing?

                          My family are really enjoying lifecake and love posting comments on my photos. However my parents are divorced and don't like reading each others comments.

                          Could you introduce a privacy option so I could keep comments hidden from different family members, or only allow them to see my comments or their own and not each others?

                            Currently this feature is not planned however should there by any changes, we’ll notify you right away.

                            Hi,
                            Really like the app, great idea and nice and simple to use! One thing I think would be nice would be the ability to view all the photos full screen automatically, as you would on a digital photo frame, and not just for tablets - I'd use it on my tablet at home but on my phone at work while docked on my desk.
                            Keep up the good work!

                                As I put in more pictures and videos, I'm noticing that many are being put in the bottom row (hidden) until I click on it. Can you look into making a Calendar view by Month/Year to make things easier to find? Maybe make 1 picture the cover of the day in the month.. ?

                                    • Allow choosing a cover photo for videos

                                      What happens is, when I upload a video, the app randomly chooses a cover photo to display as the “thumbnail” for my video. The problem is, it’s not always the best photo of my baby or not an accurate representation of the theme of the video. It’d be best if we could choose a still image to choose as the representative of the full video. Thank you

                                      BTW thank you for bringing us this app for our children. It’s brilliant!

                                          Sending photos by DLNA or Google Home to a TV would be useful.
