  2. have the option to view the age of the child or the date of the photo on the website as is possible in the android app

    I really like lifecake and especially like the fact that you can have the age of the child rather than the date of the photo in the app. However, it is disappointing that this is not possible on the website which is the only platform that many family members use. This makes it harder for them to see how old the child is in each photo and see how much they've changed. It would be great if the website functioned like the app in showing either the age of the child or the date the photo was taken. Seeing how…

    Hey Gemma. Thanks so much for the feedback. You are completely right – we’re missing a big trick not making more of a child’s age in the web timeline.

    So, we’re in the middle of a big update to fix that. It should be ready in the next month.

    Thanks,
    Ed

  3. Build a version which works on a Samsung Smart TV.

    I see that Facebook has a smart tv version of their app. It would be great if Likecake had a similar facility.

  4. Different Notification Settings Per Child

    Have a different setting for every child following. I have started following a friend's child in addition to my own. I like being notified daily about things for my child, but only want the weekly update for my friend's child. Can we have notification settings be different for every child?

  5. Make nicknames universal

    i think that nicknames set by the parents should be the names that show for anyone looking at the account. For example, if my brother created his account with just his name, Matt, but I put his nickname as Uncle Matt, everyone should see his name as Uncle Matt when he loves a moment or makes a comment.

    Hi, Sarah! Thanks so much for this (and sorry for the delay in responding). Seems to be getting a lot of votes.

    We didn’t do this currently because we know in many families people have their own personal nicknames for people (i.e. ‘Grandma’ for me is ‘Mum’ to my mother). This is our concern with making things universal.

    Also, who gets to decide what someone’s nickname is? If it’s personal, then there is no issue. But if it’s universal, then only one person can decide.

    Would love to know yours (and anyone else’s) thoughts on this!

    - Nick, from the Lifecake team

  8. Let me see what pictures a certain user has favorited

    If I want to select a few pictures to print out for grandma, for example, it would be nice if I could see all the pictures she has "hearted".

  9. 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.

  10. Creating Albums

    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

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. Enable location settings

    Allow photos to be tagged by location/place. Instagram has this feature. Makes it easier to tag rather than having to describe where every picture was taken.

    Hi, Pauline. We’re so sorry this suggestion didn’t get a response.

    We’ve had a lot of thought about this as a team, and we’ve always worried that location information might seem a bit intrusive. But we’re thinking about ways we can do this so it’s totally optional and wouldn’t violate the privacy of parents or their children.

    We’ll update in there when we know more :-)

    Thanks!

  16. 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!

  17. Make some family viewers only

    Can you invite family that you want to view your content but not be able to comment on it?

  18. 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?

    - Ed, the Lifecake team.

  19. 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!

    Hi! Thanks for the suggestion and apologies for the delay in responding.

    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?

  20. Be able to search for keywords in stories instead of just titles.

    I want to search for keywords that might not be found in the title of the story.
