What is i Live - Gold Edition?

i Live - Gold Edition is an app that rivals the likes of Tamagotchi with users caring for and raising a human baby.

 

Rated for users ages 12 years and older, i Live - Gold Edition is free to download and play but features in-app purchases that range in price from $0.99 to $26.99.

 

With the tagline “You Play. He Lives.”, users are practically guilted into keeping their virtual human baby alive. No need for the eggs of days of old, or the expensive computerized dolls, high school home economics classes can now have students download the i Live app to practice the art of caring for a child.

 

When users open the app, they begin at the very, very beginning, swimming along with sperm as they make their way through the cervix to fertilize the egg.

 

Players are treated to rousing classical music as the sperm make their journey north. Once the sperm reach the eggs, it’s fertilized, and the intro opens to the home page, featuring an animated sonogram-like image of a baby in-utero, the fetus squiggling around as calming classical music plays in the background.

 

At the bottom of the screen are three menu options: New Account, Options, Credits.

 

When players select New Account to begin, they’re taken to a page where they can customize the details of their baby-to-be. Skin tone, eye color, hair color, and name are the fields to be input, in addition to an option to play through a tutorial.

 

Users tap “Save and Start,” and their parenting journey begins, with the screen opening to a nursery with squirming newborns in bassinets. A text box appears with an introduction from “Dr. Live,” who tells players that their baby is the one featured front and center, and proceeds to take them through an i Live app tutorial.

 

As the app developer hails from Italy, the English in the text boxes that appear throughout i Live is not exact and some of it is downright nonsensical. Regardless, players are still easily able to navigate through the care and keeping of their baby.

Is i Live - Gold Edition safe for my kids?

Like Tamagotchis, players are rewarded, with the proper care of their baby, by seeing their baby grow from a newborn up to five years of age. The trick, however, is how to care for the baby up to that age.

Without directions to do simple functions, such as diapering or feeding the baby a bottle, users won’t be able to progress out of the newborn stage.

Many users complain that i Live has a fun concept and has the potential to be a great app, but is too glitchy to stick with.

Parents should be sure to warn children against inputting their real name in the first and last name entries, as the i Live app does collect user information; keep your name fictional.

Overall, parents have nothing to worry about with the i Live app, as long as their children avoid inputting their real name.  This app is safe for kids.
