All My Love (for you) HD– A Gentle, Heartwarming Story App for Preschoolers

All My Love (for you) HD– A Gentle, Heartwarming Story App for Preschoolers | Must Read articles: Apps and eBooks for kids | Scoop.it

Top Story book apps for kids - After a long, busy day, it’s nice for a child to unwind with a calming story. All My Love (for you)HD (universal app) offers parents and children a way to connect using this simple, yet meaningful tale.

 

(...) Some of the elements of All My Love (for you) HD are reminiscent of other outstanding children’s stories. Its theme of a father’s unending love reminds me of “Guess How Much I Love You”. Its use of scary monsters that are tamed reminds me of “Where the Wild Things Are,” and its intricate and clever illustrations remind me of “Jamberry.” Each page is a panorama, filled with characters, animations, and unexpected surprises. It’s hard to explain, but there is a dream-like quality in the way the story is told."

Developer ideas on how parents, Apple and their peers can avoid IAP controversies. By Stuart Dredge
@CotCotCotApps's insight:

Very interesting views from / on all stakeholders' role and responsibility following the IAP controversy in the UK. 

It would be high time for app developers to adopt a code of conduct before the EU Commission regulates the market. A good example is MomsWithApp's Privacy & Safety badge developped to be compliant with the US Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

Free-to-play children's apps: it's time for a proper debate - Stuart Edge in The Guardian

Free-to-play children's apps: it's time for a proper debate - Stuart Edge in The Guardian | Must Read articles: Apps and eBooks for kids | Scoop.it

When I talk to fellow parents, it's surprising how many say in the same breath that they won't let their kids play anything with IAP, yet also that they only download free apps for those children. This contradiction is putting pressure on developers trying to a.) make great apps and b.) stay in business.

 

Perhaps the media reports of kids overspending on IAP will change things, persuading more parents to pay for high-quality apps, or spend more time figuring out which apps use IAP in an ethical way.

“Don’t do this, don’t do that”, “careful, “no”, “that’s enough”…it’s not always easy setting down the rules with one’s children, especially when it comes to moderating the use of a tool as fun and interactive as the tablet! That’s why we’ve decided to help parents like us, faced with this new gadget, to put into place a few basic rules concerning the family tablet or smartphone borrowed from mum or dad.

@CotCotCotApps's insight:

Une petite appli-jeux soumise à Apple la nuit dernière dont l'objectif est d'aider les parents à modérer l'utilisation de la tablette... mais de manière ludique et sans dire de "gros mot" comme "règle"... # avoir les mains propres # être assis confortablement # ne pas regarder trop longtemps l'écran...
