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 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

Share the love!

The festive season is nearly upon us. Of course your shopping is all done and dusted (wait, what?) but we have another gift for you to share.

 In the spirit of the season, we are offering new customers who sign up to Lifecake before the end of the year and sharing with 3 or more family members 10GB of storage FREE

So, take a moment over eggnog/mulled wine/[insert suitably festive drink here] to tell a friend about Lifecake and how perfect it is to store and share their family photos. They will thank you for it

Lifecake Lift Off!


It’s official! The Lifecake secret is out. We’ve just briefed the press on our launch. This might not be the newest of news to anyone who’s already using Lifecake but it’s still an exciting milestone for us. For quite a while now we have been heads down, busily bringing our vision for Lifecake to life and enjoying all the great feedback we have received from you. It feels pretty good to talk about it publicly and to start getting the word out.  So, if you take the business news with your morning coffee – look out for our name in lights – or just print, more likely. 

If you are interested you can read the press release here. 

The great news is that post our “launch” you can expect to see plenty more great features in coming updates. In fact, we are putting the finishing touches to some in the test kitchen right now.  Interested? Watch this space for more details.

As always we need to know what else you’d like to see.  How can we make Lifecake work even better for you and your family? Let us know in the comments or by hitting “Talk to us” on the website.
