I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Add drag and drop to reorganise timeline photos

    So the extra shots in the drawer below the timeline can be dragged onto the timeline to replace those selected automatically. But when I drag a replacement photo from the drawer to the timeline, there is a pre-determined order that the photos are displayed in. This is actually a bit annoying! It would be far better if I could drag and drop the exact image I want from the drawer and onto the exact thumbnail where I'd like it displayed.

    We’re so sorry about the delay in responding on this, James. We are looking at our Website and looking to change quite a few things, and we’ll update here when we have a test version. We’d love to get everyone’s feedback!

  2. Manage duplicated photos uploaded from various devices

    Through our recent experience using your very beautiful application life-cake we had some ideas:

    If the program could recognize the duplicated pictures if they were uploaded from different devices and gave notification about that to prevent this issue.

    Hi, Ruaa! Thanks for the feedback.

    We’d really like to recognise duplicates in the future and make this whole process easier to manage. We don’t have a timeframe for that, but we will update here when it’s coming.

    Thanks for your patience!

  3. View favourite / liked photos

    I know there are notifications when people click on the heart button but I am wondering if you could add a tab or just something within the existing search function to view these photo's only? Both in the app and on the website, it would be good to view all the photo's that people have liked and then even filter it by child too.

    Hi Nick! We think this is a great idea and something we must have. We don’t yet have a timescale but we’ll be sure to update here when this feature is available.

    Thanks for your patience in the mean time!

  4. Add option to include audio files

    I have audio files of my daughter singing laughing cooing as a baby. I'd like it if these audio files can be added and date stamped in the timeline like everything else

    Thanks for the suggestion, and apologies for the delay in responding!

    We’ve had lots of discussions about this as a team – as we can absolutely see the value – but we’re not sure when we will add this yet. But we will update here when we have news!

  5. Provide a referral code to invite friends or share on social media

    If you want to invite friends to try out Lifecake, but don't have their email address or want to use the automated form, perhaps you could provide a unique referral code or link which they can use when signing up?

    HI, Meg! So sorry for the delay in responding to this. We’ve been thinking about your suggestion and how to make it easier to invite loved ones.

    The challenge is always balancing our need for complete security with the desire to make everything with lifecake fun and easy. The shared link is great for the latter but not as good on the former. But we will keep working on this!

    Thanks so much for the great suggestion.

  6. Enable comments to be hidden from family members who don't get along

    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?

  7. Photoframe mode

    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!

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

    Last year we had a slideshow feature – when you shake your iPhone or iPad – but we will be improving this in the next weeks. And we’ll update you here when it’s in the App Store and it would be great to get your feedback :-)

  8. offer gift subscriptions for VIP service

    My sister just started using the service to share pictures of her child. It would be great if I could buy her a gift subscription to the VIP service.

    Thanks, Jed!

    We are planning this, as we think this will make a fantastic gift few new parents. We will let you know when this is coming, so you can try it out. We think your sister will appreciate it :-)

  9. View pictures and video in a calendar view rather than timeline

    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.. ?

  12. 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!

  14. give the possibility to remove Favorite button

    So that child doesnt have to see how many favorites each picture has when he or she looks at them in retrospect.

  15. See who has viewed your photo or video

    It would be nice to see which family members actually view what we upload

  17. Less security measures

    Lifecake as it functions right now is very challenging for my non-techy relatives. There are so many security measures and when they try to use multiple devices to login it confuses them even more. I have been wasting tons of time resigning up for them but because we're in different cities it messy with their devices. No one is going to hack into a photo sharing app so I think it's all overkill. Please work to make Lifecake more user friendly. I love the concept because it's so much more simple for the person uploading photos but way too complicated…

  18. Limit number of "Favorites"

    In-laws "favorite" every single picture we upload. It would be nice to be able to limit the number of favorites certain (or all) invitees can use.

  19. Ajouter des fonctionnalités de rangement et classement photos en premium

    Lorsque l'on devient premium, il faudrait ajouter des fonctionnalités. Par exemple, pouvoir ajouter des # pour retrouver ensuite toutes les photos d'une même thématique à âge différent (#nouvelledent / .#repas / #anniversaire #vacances #peinture ....) et pouvoir taguer les différentes personnes sur les photo.
    Il sera alors beaucoup plus simple de retrouver nos photos et d'en profiter ! Car plus bébé grandit plus il est difficile de s'y retrouver !
    De plus, ça facilitera grandement la création des albums photos dédiés à certaines personnes en particulier (en récupérant uniquement les photos où ces personnes figurent).
    A minima, ce serait bien…

  20. Flip image

    Please add an ability to flip the image vertically or horizontally. Some phones with selphie cameras do not flip image correctly, it would be a great option that after upload you could flip it.
