Description

Play Christmas songs on the handbells with Holiday Bells! Now for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

How to play:

Jingle Bells: shake the phone to ring the bells. Fun for kids!

Handbell: swing to ring. Tap on the clef to change pitch.

Handbell Set: 15 handbells. Tap on the bells to play your favorite holiday songs!

Songs: 20 tap-along Christmas songs, with favorites like "Jingle Bells", "Away in a Manger", "Joy to the World", and more. Scroll the songs list to see them all. Select a song from the list, then follow the snowflakes to play it on the bells! Very easy to play - no music experience required!

Stickers: includes a holiday sticker pack for iMessage, with bells, stars, animated music notes, a music sheet and songbook, an animated candle with flickering flame, a Christmas wreath, birds (cedar waxwing, cardinal, and peace dove), and a red poinsettia. All of the stickers are original hand-drawn artwork by artist and app developer Kira Matrejek.

Holiday Bells uses the beautiful sound of real handbells!

What's New in Version 3.1

Now with Auto-Play: the app can now play the songs for you! Also: a new song (Pat-A-Pan), and a new holiday sticker pack for your iMessages!

Also new this year:

* Auto-Play! Choose a song, then either follow the snowflakes to tap along, or press the Auto-Play button to have the app play it for you!

* Beautiful new bell sounds! These were professionally recorded with the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church Celebration Ringers' handbell set. These new bells sound sweeter, mellower, and more in tune. Many thanks to Keith Chuvala at Gloria Dei for ringing and recording the new bells!

* New song: Pat-A-Pan! This French Christmas Carol was originally written for flute and drums, but it sounds great on the bells!

* New holiday sticker pack for your messages app! (Activate it in the "Manage" tab in the iMessage App Store.)

* Updated for iOS10 and all screen sizes.

* Bugs fixed in 3.1:
• The iPhone/iPad now stays awake while you're auto-playing songs.
• Fixed a bug with snowflakes not getting cleared.
• Corrected the layout of musical notes on the scale in the iPhone handbell view.
• Fixed the auto-play timing on Jingle Bells.

Holiday bells is also available for the new Apple TV! Look for it in the App Store on your Apple TV.

Happy holidays!

-- Kira Matrejek, app developer

Lots of fun for all ages

:
Have played in a handbell choir for many years, so I was very excited to find this app. Had it first on my phone and entertained the choir with it. We have enough users in our choir to find a way to use them in a performance! My grandkids like becoming ringers, too, and the addition of Christmas music was a brilliant idea.

3/5 stars

Disappointed

:
Would have liked it better if "Carol of the Bells" was included. That should have been a "no brainer".

3/5 stars

Need to Add Auto Play Option!!

:
Pro: Sounds great!!
Con: Doesn't play songs -- you have to :(
