Decent app. Had features I want but missing some

Needs more flexibility for choosing how to scale photos to fit frame. As it is now, it only fits the whole image to the screen which leaves black bars for pics that aren't already the right dimensions. Also, more options for transitions are needed.

A Ken Burns style would be much appreciated to solve the sizing issue. The existing dissolve transition is good and is my preferred transition but I'm sure others would appreciate more choices.

The settings for the slide show are a bit awkward to manipulate. The interface isn't quite right.

A neat feature would be one that could take advantage of the front facing camera to enable wake/sleep with motion detection. Not sure if current iOS APIs allow for this or not. If the whole device can't wake/sleep, at least pause the show and set the screen to the darkest setting.

Thank you for your feedback! Many of the features you are requesting for are already on our list for future updates. Stay tuned! Also, LiveFrame currently has an Auto Shutdown setting that will stop the slideshow at a provided time. You can find this setting in the settings menu when the slideshow is paused.

I don’t ever review apps, I’m not sure why. However this one has been nothing but great. I’m using it on an iPad I have framed to turn an unused old slow iPad into a gorgeous digital picture frame. This app doesn’t disappoint and you can’t tell you’re looking at an iPad (except for the picture quality). We were able to seamlessly select the Apple share drive we have all my sons pictures on and shuffle them. There are over 1800 photos now shuffling and auto updating as we add more to the share. I love you can tell the app to turn off at a certain time. My only request is to have the app turn ON at a certain time, and begin shuffling photos immediately. I can tell my jailbroken ipad to turn on at a certain time, and then the app to open and shuffle automatically. And then it’ll turn off at a specific time. It would be nice to have my frame running 5p-12p every day automatically. Here’s hoping they add it, but nonetheless, definitely recommend it. It’s $2, don’t bother with the ads/free version. Just spend the $2.

Great digital picture frame or slideshow, enjoying the app

I wanted a Shared Album slideshow that my mom could start with a Siri voice command after she uses Siri to check her Messages and Calendar. I couldn’t figure a way to do that, even with Shortcuts. This does that (“Hey Siri, open LiveFrame”) and a lot more. The slideshow can include not only photos from your iPad, but also from all your social media accounts, which is pretty neat.

Things I figured out about the app that other users might want to know: photos are ordered by creation date, not upload date as stated on the web page; Disable Lock Screen works per the web page, not the App Store page; Check for New Photos works per the web page, not the App Store page; and captions are IPTC captions, not the other things like title, file name, and Photos description that might be considered a caption.

Thank you for the message! We are so happy to hear you can share memories with your family. This is one of the main motivators behind creating LiveFrame. We will take your suggestions into account when updating the app/webpage.
