Some of the most beautiful sounds I know are the Christmas bells tinkling. Not only do the silvery sounds remind me of snowflakes falling, but the handbells are able to create beautiful songs and carols too. You can play 12 Christmas songs with handbells on your iDevice with Holiday Bells, just as if you were playing the actual instruments. Additionally, younger ones have the option to simply shake the phone to hear jingling bells. Here are some of the musically enchanting features of Holiday Bells:

- Jingle Bells: shake the phone to ring the bells.

- 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: 12 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!

- Ver. 2 includes more bells - A complete octave (including sharps), plus one bell above and below the octave.

- Autorotate-lock button on the iPad screens.

With so many handbell songs available to tap out and play yourself, the whole family can enjoy making music much like the seasoned choirs do. You don't need a musical ear, only a love of beautiful sounds! This is truly a wonderful game for all ages and the sounds of the bells are full of holiday cheer.

SUMMARY: Enjoy the music of the holidays with the realistic sounds of Holiday Bells to lift your spirits and brighten your day!
