A big development disappointment. T Was fantastic fun, privately sharing baby's progress

Sept. '17: edited. Heartbroken that recent app development makes each photo a 'card,' highlighting the number of likes & comments per photo. Guessing this was a developer- rather than feedback/client-led development: if I as a parent wanted to rack up likes & comments, I'd post my tiny tot's pictures on Instagram. This 'playing card' format breaks up the continuous-ribbon-of-picture-tiles format of our child's development that we & our friends & family had so loved. And it completely misunderstands the purpose of such an online photo book: to see the child's development; not the number of likes a picture of the child achieves. We're so disappointed & I don't want other parents to invest time in building up a photo book library here, when other secure photo-sharing apps for children offer the continuous-ribbon-of-picture-tiles that is such a joy to scroll through.
Original review. Great for friends and relatives abroad. They can select how frequently and how (smartphone alerts or email) they receive update notifications. We like the video slide show function too; it brings the pictures alive in a time lapse. You can order a photo book. In contrast to some social media websites, photos remain yours. Easy & intuitive to use. I'd like to know more about where servers are, under what data protection jurisdiction, cyber security etc.

Slowly getting worse

I’ve had to come back and edit my previous review as recent versions of this app have gotten very annoying. There’s a feature called Time Warp which I have no interest in and don’t even understand, but the app notifies me endlessly about tapping to see if there’s a Time Warp available for ever single child I’m connected to on the app. To their credit, there’s a section in the settings that allows you to set which events you want to receive notifications for, sadly it’s not possible to turn off the infuriating Time Warp notifications. I’ve had to simply disable notifications for Lifecake entirely in the iPhone’s settings, which is a shame because now I miss events that I do actually care about.

I would vastly prefer that the developers concentrated on fixing the bugs, instead of trying to come up with new ways to drive engagement. These Time Warp notifications have had entirely the opposite effect, and led to me barely using the app at all.

Previous review: I’ve tried a number of apps that offer private / family photo sharing and none of them come close to this one. This is the only one that I’ve managed to persuade the grandparents to use (no mean feat), and they are now so hooked they’re getting the rest of the family on it too.

Hello Faustino Hernán Asprilla, thank you for getting in touch with us. We are sorry to hear this however you shouldn't be receiving the Time Warp notifications very often. This might be something we need to look into so can you please write us on and we would be happy to help? Have a great day, the Lifecake Team

Doesn't work on iPhone

I've attempted to get lifecake to work on my iPhone5 multiple times either from a web page or by downloading the App. My daughter sent an invite, but lifecake didn't download the app. I registered an account on the web, then down loaded the App. I then accepted the invite (email) but it said the email account is not recognised, or whoops the email is not registered. So I closed then reopened lifecake App. I tried again to accept the invite, it asked for the email address it was sent to and it sent me a magic link which when activated stated that I should use the same device I had requested the connection - I had!! I then bounced around for an hour with same issue, sometimes with it continually stating that the email was not registered even though I was currently logged into lifecake on the same device using the same address. This not good enough. I am IT savvy, I am a knowledgeable Iphone user. This software has major issues if it can't install itself successfully onto a primary consumer device.

Hello Redbaron165, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear this. Accept invite would not work once you have already created an account from another device using the same email address, it might be that this has created the issue here. We are also sorry to hear that you had issues with the magic link, which should be opened from the native Mail App on your iPhone. Please write us on so that we can look into this further. Have a great day, The Lifecake Team
