Our latest update for the App store includes a totally new view on your Lifecake world. It’s a view of just what’s been added since you last opened the app.  Our email updates will lead  directly into this area, so you can check the latest before diving back into your timeline.

We hope this will make it easier for family to catch up in an instant, and also make sure everyone can find earlier photos added recently.

“Lifecake is perfect for new parents who are struggling under the weight of newly captured images and videos”

Last week Alice from More Than Toast reviewed Lifecake and wrote about storing photographs of her children at Easter. She said:

Lifecake is perfect for new parents who are struggling under the weight of newly captured images and videos (I’ve got that tshirt) with little time to spend hours sending umpteen updates to family. It’s fully grandparent-tested and approved (sooo simple to use!) and is the perfect solution to keeping up to date with a child’s progress in a private space. You can add as many children as you need, tagging them in each photo, and can use their photos together or separately. It’s a fabulous way for parents to keep up to date with their children when they spend time with childminders but my favourite way of using the service is to snap and store Elfie’s artwork – no more guilt over slyly popping the 87th picture of an octopus in the recycling.

Lifecake and the Heartbleed Bug

We take your privacy and the safety of your photos and videos very seriously indeed. So if you were wondering how Lifecake was affected by the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug we wanted to give you an update. In short, everything is fixed and there is no sign of intrusion on our platform.

Immediately after the issue was made public, we updated our systems to ensure you face no risk. There is no sign that Lifecake security was jeopardized but, as an extra precaution, our advice is to reset your passwords for all your online services. You can do this most easily for Lifecake on the web at a computer at
