Based on the children’s book of the same name this endearing story tells of a parents love for their child no matter where they are, what they are doing or how the child is behaving.

I Love You All The Time has been designed to be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Everyone, toddlers to grandparents, will delight in sharing this book. The atmosphere is one of love and acceptance under any circumstance.
This book app is highly customizable making it ideal for families with kids of all ages. Parents can choose to have the story narrated, record their voice, not allow animations until the text on the page has been read, mute the background music and protect kids from accessing external links. The child’s name can even be entered for the end of the story.
Many of the navigational features we look for in book apps are included in this fantastic little book. Page arrows or swiping the pages can be used to move from page to page, a page index makes it easy for the user to choose pages, and a button to return to the main page is available at the end of story. The navigation bar that houses many of these features is tucked away at the bottom of the page.
Recording your voice is easy to do; simple instructions are included in a nicely designed screen just for this feature. The quality of the recordings are great, playing back at the same volume they were recorded. Once the recordings are done, they can be used as one option for the kids listening to the story. The steps are easy enough that kids will be able to record their own voices.
Multiple options for reading the story make this a perfect app for families. The Read to Me option will appeal to toddlers, preschoolers and beginning readers; text highlighting is beneficial for early readers. The narration and highlighting are in step and can be repeated multiple times.
With the option to mute text narration, the read to myself feature offers parents the opportunity to read to their child or have the child read to them.
Another feature we are seeing more and more in book apps, the ability to record your voice is a favorite of my family. I like being able to record the story for my family to enjoy. Most kids love hearing their voices recorded.
This app has many high quality design elements, such as the graphics, music, text and navigation options. The location of the text on the page and readability of the text is good. The light animations are just enough for little explorers who love to touch everywhere. Letters of the alphabet are included on the child’s quilt, when touched the letter’s name is spoken.
Kids can use this app in multiple ways for entertainment, reading the story and the animations are just two. Included in the app is the original soundtrack, which is also available for purchase in iTunes. At times, we enjoyed listening to the music over and over.
This book is a good read any time of day, even at bedtime. The soft and calming atmosphere of the book makes it a good pick for nap or bedtime; especially, with the book ending as the child goes to sleep. The light animations are not likely to get the kids all wound-up.
I Love You All The Time is an excellent book app with high quality features, and includes multiple educational and entertainment options. This is an app I can see being long-lasting on a family’s iPad.
The app has been designed for kids up to age six; readers within that range may need some assistance initially. The design is simple enough that they will find it easy and enjoyable to use.
I Love You All The Time does contain a couple of external links; however, they can be protected quickly by an option in the settings menu. This lovely little app does not contain social media, in-app purchases or ads. Bravo to the developer! What a lovely and safe environment for our children to enjoy.
