Perfect for parents


As my baby is the first grandchild for my parents and my in laws, I was having to text a picture to a dozen people a day. My sister in law showed me this app a week ago and my only complaint is that she waited until my son was almost 3 months old to tell me about it.

I don’t like posting pictures of my baby on Facebook and several of my older family members (my parents and grandparents) aren’t on social media but since they have an email address I can add them to my baby’s Lifecake. Then I can post pictures that everyone I want to see them sees instantly.

My dad loves being able to scroll through all of the pictures and see how much the baby has changed how old the baby was on that day. As an added bonus, I ran out of storage in iCloud and needed somewhere to store my 350 pictures and this was a great way to make sure I didn’t lose any pictures when I had to get my iPhone repaired.

A Must-Have for New Parents & Relatives!


It is such a joy to be able to document the life of any child, or any family member, regardless of age. I love being able to scroll back in time, and to immediately see photos posted. A real life asset that brings family and friends together!

The only complaint I have is initial access difficulty that my friends and family have encountered. Most never could access our photos, got frustrated, and gave up trying. I also had this problem and the only resolution was to sign in with another e-mail address.

Some very clear, step-by-step instructions should be included in the first e-mail notice sent to each authorized person so that they can easily sign in and access our photos.

Can’t live without it

Lifecake devotee

I’ve been a devoted Lifecake user for 6 years and it has totally changed my life. I upload photos daily from wherever I am and then delete them phone, as well as movies and stories on the go. The day I started using Lifecake I got caught up on FIVE YEARS worth of baby photos, just like that. I just uploaded them and they were automatically placed in chronological order in my kids’ timelines. No more folders, no more keeping track of dates or having to label each photo with the dates - it’s all done automatically. Best of all, I can share photos, movies, and stories privately with only the family or friends I choose. My family overseas feels closer and more connected thanks to Lifecake. Love, love, love it!
