Now more than ever, we need this app to stay connected

I was a devotee of the app “Lifecake” for many years and absolutely crushed when its parent company made the decision to close up shop. Happily, BackThen stepped up to fill the need. I upload photos, movies, and stories from my phone and Back Then automatically places them in chronological order within the times lines of each of my kids. Given that we can’t fly to see overseas relatives (and even family within the country) due to the current situation, Back Then helps us stay connected. All my children’s grandparents love checking in with Back Then each day and seeing what their grandkids are up to. Transitioning from Lifecake was easy... thank you so much BackThen team! I highly recommend this easy to use, creative, fun app. No more than ever, we need this app to help us feel closer and to share (virtually) what we can’t share in real life.

Fantastic Photo Archiving App for Parents

Intuitive, slick photo and video archiving app that allows family to share photos in a secure, private space that allows parents, grandparents, and others to comment, add content, and have a photo archive with them whenever they want to access it. Allows large photo/video uploads as well as provides access to download your archive whenever you want. Formerly Lifecake - which was unfortunately downsized by the parent company during the pandemic of 2020 - the staff even made the transition of 100s of gigabytes of photos from the former app to this one seamless and relatively rapid. Have been an active user of Lifecake -> BackThen for 4 years and highly recommend it.

Very easy to transition from Lifecake!

Well done by the original lifecake team! Disappointing that Canon would go and purchase lifecake only to shut it down. But good negotiation by the lifecake team to have clauses to allow for a rebirth of the same app with a new company. We had 30 GBs of memories that transitioned over in about 5 minutes and it’s just like it all was in lifecake thankfully! Would have been terrible to start over again! But more expensive but it’s understandable considering how much cloud space is needed nowadays as to when lifecake originally started. Thanks to the Old Lifecake/new BackThen team!!!
