Absolute necessity for any new parent
Before the birth of our precious daughter I went searching for an app that would be easy enough for her grandparents to use, while allowing for a great storage of all of our memories with her. After playing around and weeding through the many apps available I settled on LifeCake....and I am glad I did. The app allows you to designate "administrators" to keep track, edit, monitor what is going on. This is in addition to "family" members who can post pictures/videos/stories to their content. I love the ease of use of this app. My father-in-law uses this app ALL of the time, to catch up on his granddaughter while he is on the other side of the country. We love the timeline that breaks down uploads to the age of the baby, including gestational age prior to birth. Really cool feature. Plus the slideshow feature is awesome if you want a random look of your collection. LifeCake allows you to upload 10GB of pictures, videos, stories for free, but charge a reasonable $36/year or $5/month for unlimited uploads after that. And if you are anything like our family you will need the unlimited (we are at 7.5GB and she is only 7 weeks old!!). Pick this app up NOW if you are a new parent!!
Easy to use
Life cake is a great alternative to posting your baby pics all over Facebook. I'm a bit of an introvert and although I post the occasional photo on FB I'd rather limit most of them to just close family and a couple of friends. (I know that can be done on FB but it's a pain and does not work well in the mobile app) This app is easy enough for the grandparents to use. We can easily post both photos and videos and it comes with a good amount of free space.
The only criticism that I have is about the notifications. By default it sends them out every time someone loves, comments, or uploads a photo. This is too much for most people and although the settings can be customized, I have found that my connections complain or even uninstall rather than adjusting the settings. Maybe the app should ask for your preferences when you first install it?
Just what we needed!
Seems like active development on this app & service has essentially stopped since Canon purchased them. It's such a shame because although the service itself is solid, the app continues to be ridiculously buggy (especially with iCloud Photo Library) and it's not optimized for iPhone 6 screen sizes. Live Photos are perfect for Lifecake, but it doesn't support those either. I really hope things get back on track.
My previous (glowing) review is below. Most of it holds, except for the regularly updated app part:
Lifecake, both its app and it's web service, is exactly what we were looking for. The app is updated regularly with new features and improvements. Love the "Shake" feature in this release (could have been in the last release but I didn't see it).
I'm a proud VIP member and would highly recommend it to other families.
A few favorite features:
- photos and videos are displayed chronologically, regardless of what order you upload them.
- focus on child's age in the photo
- Shake slideshow feature (would be nice to have Airplay integration on that one)
- "add a kid" button. Wish it was that easy.
