  2. wish I could post for dates less than one month away. I'd like to write to tomorrow.

    Whenever I start a new challenge (for example, NaNoWriMo or train for a 5K), it would be nice to be able to talk to me every day during that challenge, even if the decision to join is made less than 30 days from the start of the challenge

  3. allow users to send a letter from their favourite email client rather than from your website.

    The user could email their letter to "me@futureme.org", from within gmail or Outlook. They would be able to attach anything they choose, and use any kind of formatting.

    Perhaps the first line of the email could specify, in a certain format, the date of future delivery and the public visibility status.

  4. Change the date of the letter of when we 'write' it. Like, backdating or something.

    I don't know if it sounds like an agreeable idea to all, but personally, I'd really like if we had the option to display a different date from the one we're actually writing on.
    For example, I recently introduced my grandmother to this website and she LOVED it! And there's this fond memory she has of me and my brother when we were 10 and 5 respectively. She said that she'd love to be able to backdate a letter, as in, send it from November 2002, into the future, than displaying today's current date.

    Could you guys please make this…

  5. Blocking Dates

    Allow us to block out the date of the letter in case we don't want to see when the letter is coming.

  7. App improvement

    For the app, allow us to write and save a draft if we don't have connection to the iternet so our letter doesnt get deleted.

  9. add attachments and formatting

    Just like in an actual email client

    Attachments: attach files or insert pictures (replacing webcam picture feature, you just take a picture with your camera app then attach it)
    Formatting: bold, italic, underline, fonts, font size, font color, highlight color, number lists, bullet lists, indent, text align, links, emoji

  13. allow users to choose a past date to email their past selves.

    if their email address did exist before advice date, it should be possible.

  17. sending futureme videos on the emails as well so we can then receive a more personal message as well as a formally written one

    if we could attach a video as we can an image then we could receive more of a personal video into the future too ! we could either have a ready made one or just create one on the spot via webcam

  19. New Layout

    I find it really confusing and difficult to find when my next FutureMe should be arriving. They don't seem to be in any specific order?
    a really prefered the old layout, it was a lot clearer.

  20. let us have no time limit on receiving letters

    I would like there to be no limit on when we can receive the letters. For example, I tried to send myself an e-mail for an event I have coming up, to get my confidence up. But it's less than thirty days away, so I can't. I'd like to be able to do things like that.
