Breeze is the wind chime for your pocket; take it everywhere you go. Enjoy it at work. Use it to escape from your commute. Or allow it to drift you off to sleep!
First released in 2011, Breeze has been loved in all corners of the globe and with the latest update, it takes a big step forward in terms of quality and realism - and it can now PLAY IN THE BACKGROUND*!
Breeze is not just a bunch of pre-recorded or synthesized sounds. Breeze is a real-time, physics based simulation of wind interacting with chimes. The sounds used for each and every chime have been pain-stakingly sampled from real world objects to create the highest possible level of quality for your phone.
In addition to wind chimes, you can select from background images to capture your mood. And with the addition of mixable background ambient sounds, you can reach a whole new level of mental calm.
* This feature is available as an In-App purchase.
If you enjoy breeze, please rate it and share it with your friends!
Version 2.0.1 contains a few important bug fixes (if you find a bug, please email me so I can fix it - email@example.com):
- FIXED iPad rotation issues on iPad6thGeneration and iPadPro10Inch.
- FIXED Layout issues on a couple of devices (causing the Restore Purchases button to be missing).
- Anti-aliasing has been disabled on all devices (for better performance and extended battery life).
--------------------------- VERSION 2.0.0 notes are below ---------------------------
Version 2.0 of Breeze is finally here! And with it comes some features that we have all been waiting for!
This is a HUGE update that has been many months in development. I hope you like it!
---- PLAY IN BACKGROUND (IN-APP PURCHASE) ----
Yes! At last! Breeze will now continue in the background on your device*! This is an exciting feature and one that has taken me many months of hard work to implement. I'm thrilled to be sharing it with you all!
Play-in-background can be disabled/enabled in the Options menu too.
*Owing to the extensive development time required to make this work, I've had to make this available via In-App purchases. I appreciate your support :)
---- MUTE SWITCH NO LONGER SILENCES BREEZE ----
Breeze will no longer be MUTED when the side switch is flicked on your phone!
---- BACKGROUND IMAGES REMASTERED ----
All of the existing background images have been updated with high resolution, in-focus images. Some of the old favourites could not be remastered, so they've been replaced with new images that retain the mood. It's a fresh new look!
---- NEW BACKGROUND IMAGES ----
Two new background images have been added. These come from a trip I made to the beautiful state of California in 2018.
---- NEW BACKGROUND SOUNDS ----
Two new background sounds have been added. The first is the warmth provided by a crackling camp fire, while the second offers the relaxing hum of a breathing city.
---- FIRE FX ADDED ----
In addition to Rain, Mist and Lightning, you can now enhance the visual experience of Breeze with the embers and smoke from a camp fire!
---- MODERNISED INTERFACE ----
The icons and general interface of Breeze have been given an update to keep it in-line with the look and feel of iOS. I personally LOVE the new look and hope you do too!
---- MORE REALISTIC CHIMES ----
The overall look and feel of the wind-chimes and background images have also been improved, with new visual improvements which include; Reflections on metallic surfaces, shadows, softening of edges, lens effects and some other subtleties. These can be disabled in the Options menu if required.
---- PAUSE/PLAY BUTTON----
As Breeze can now play-in-the-background (when purchased via In-App), you sometimes want to quickly prevent this. The Pause/Play button located in the top-right corner does just that!
---- MORE IN-APP CHIMES ----
In addition to the above included features, I've added 6 new chimes as an In-App option. Making these In-App allows me to continue developing Breeze. I hope you enjoy them.
---- BREEZE-LITE REMOVED FROM SALE ----
BreezeLite has reached the end of it's life and was recently removed from the App Store. I apologise to those who purchased the app and would like to see it updated, however it no longer makes economical sense for me to maintain two variations of Breeze. For this reason I've chosen to focus all of my efforts on the full version only. Thanks for your understanding.
Enjoy this update!
COMING IN 2.1
Plans for the next release are already underway, with the following features currently in development;
- Voice Over support! I can't wait to have this feature released.
- AlarmClock! Wake up to the beautiful sounds of Breeze every morning. This will be an In-App feature.
- Some more background images and sounds.
Ratings and Reviews
I'm love the sound of wind chimes. This app is so relaxing and helps me to meditate and reduce stress. However, there is one disappointment with the app...I cannot hear the chimes in the background when using my iPad to read, do banking, etc. You must keep the app open and cannot use the iPad to do anything or the chimes stop. It sure would be very nice to be able to continue hearing the chimes while I use my iPad. If the developer would make this available I will give it FIVE STARS and it would be perfect. The sounds are just beautiful! <3
Breeze has the best soundtracks
***********UPDATE ⬇️ BELOW*************
Breeze’s sound tracks are CLEAN. You won’t hear any background noise that doesn’t belong there. No occasional meow or door shutting. You won’t hear the same exact five minutes of a rainstorm play over and over again because that’s all they have to make a soundtrack with. Breeze’s soundtracks are as naturally random as nature is. I have no idea how they manage it, but i LOVE it. I’ve been a Breeze Fan for almost 4yrs now. No other app even comes close.
Only ONE thing I ask of you Breeze, ONE thing stands between you and that 5th Star equaling perfection.
That the sound stays on top no matter what else I am doing on my phone. Sound is the background of my life, I’d like you as my background.~~~Pamela
Dear Mr. Clinton Downs,
THANK YOU! I did indeed notice your update right away on Friday, but didn’t have time to explore it, I just sunk into bed at the end of the day with my Breeze on its usual settings. On Saturday morning I explored them fully, I am thrilled, probably Everyone here is. I told my SO, because he is the one who turned me onto Breeze, and he thinks this is Excellent! I’m using the ‘Angel Bells’, Low Tones are more my thing, thank you for that too. You have definitely earned your Five Star Rating! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~~~Pamela
Developer Response ,
Hi Pamela. Thanks for taking the time to update your review. One thing I enjoy when updating the app is thinking of different chime combinations that would not be possible or practical in reality. The Angel Bells arrangement is one of those :)
Hi. Firstly, thank you for such a fantastic review. I put a large amount of personal effort into making breeze as good as it could be, and I’m thrilled you have noticed that!
Secondly, play in background functionality is available in the 2.0 update as an In-App purchase.
I hope you love the other included updates too 😀
I have a speaker externally mounted on my house which already plays hourly chimes (the neighbors love it!). This allows me to add a variety of chime sounds. If I could make one suggestion, it would be even more awesome to offer a recording of a bass chime ... some aluminum chime which is 4-5 feet in length (on average or longer). Alternatively, perhaps it would be possible to expand the "chime key" in that direction.
Really great!!! contribution to iTunes Apps. Thank you.
In case anyone else is interested in populating their yard with $2 windchimes my set up is an external mono megaphone-type speaker powered by a small 12-v. amp. connected to an old iPhone 3S. It's solar powered, but that's neither here no there.
