Ratings and Reviews
Best App EVER! 🔔
I have had this app on my phone for more than 10 years, and I still play with it every Christmas. I’m trying to teach my 95-year-old neighbor how to use her iPhone, and yesterday I gifted her this app. As I showed her how to use it, her eyes lit up! I’ve never seen anyone so excited about anything! She can’t wait to show it to her family! It was such a hit that I gifted it to another neighbor, a single father with a 7-year-old boy. I know they’ll have fun playing the songs. Thank you to the developer for such an outstanding, flawless app. I’ve never encountered any problems, and it’s so well-designed and user-friendly— even for kids and older people!

Thank you! Merry Christmas!
A Ringing Endorsement!
This app does exactly what I'd hoped, letting me play cool-sounding bells to make my own music or accompanying the included classical holiday tunes. I appreciate that it let me ring more than one bell at a time (I could ring at least six at once on my iPad), and it sounded exactly like I'd expect a bunch of bells ringing at the same time. I wish there was an option to see which note each bell was playing, since that'd make it easier to play my own tunes, but that's a minor quibble that doesn't detract from the package. (B)ring in some joyful noise for your holidays!
It's starting to sound and look a lot like Christmas!
What a cool app. This latest update even includes holiday iMessage stickers. Wow!
