What's New in Version 2.6
Three new songs!
* I Saw Three Ships (come sailing in on Christmas day)
* O Holy Night - I love this song and have wanted to include it for a while, though it's more complex than most of the other songs. It spans more than a single octave, so some of the notes drop down into what the app can play. I think it still works though, and hope you enjoy it!
* Auld Lang Syne (Ok, this isn't a Christmas tune, but now you can ring in the New Year with Holiday Bells.) :)
I've also updated the icon to look nice on iOS7, and made a few other minor fixes and improvements.
Have a great Christmas!
This app offers a fun and interactive Christmas musical experience. If your 5 or 55 years old, one will become enchanted by the ability to ring bells to their special Christmas song. I find myself with my earphones on playing my favorites as I stand in line or traveling. I am often asked about this wonderful app and have enjoyed delightful conversations as they too enjoy playing this app. I've offered
my phone to fussy young ones with the bells as they shake the phone and watch their face light up with not only the sound of the bells but that the bells respond to their movement. Download now and have fun.
not kidding, great app
Holiday bells is the best bell app on the App Store. What a delight to see that there is a handbell set. By the way, I am happy to see that there are 15 bells in the handbell set. Jingle bells, no prob atall. A single handbell, not a problem at all. There is one thing that I need to tell you guys. I am a voice over user. So when I get on the handbell set tab, or more tab on the app, then I experience crashing. but I am so not giving up on this app.
Not only is it a lovely application that you can just explore and have fun with, but you could also actually use it for family gatherings or special events that are needing something special... and when bells like these may not be available to those that are trying to make these sounds a beautiful reality! So thank you very much and good work! ^_^
