Holiday Bells Offers 20 Classic Handbell Christmas Songs You Can Play Along With

Holiday Bells, the popular Christmas handbells app for iOS devices, has been updated for 2016 with a new song (Pat-A-Pan), a new holiday sticker pack for iMessages, and Auto-play. Holiday Bells has been on iOS since 2008, offering users “a fun and interactive Christmas musical experience” by playing their favorite holiday songs on the handbells. Now with Auto-play, users can either play the songs themselves or have the app play it for them.

Holiday Bells for iOS features these 20 classic Christmas carols:

  • 12 Days of Christmas
  • Angels We Have Heard On High
  • Auld Lang Syne
  • Away In A Manger
  • Deck The Halls
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  • Good King Wenceslas
  • I Saw Three Ships
  • Jingle Bells
  • Joy To The World
  • O Holy Night
  • Oh Christmas Tree
  • Oh Come All Ye Faithful
  • Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
  • Pat-a-pan
  • Silent Night
  • The First Noel
  • Up On The Housetop
  • We Three Kings Of Orient Are
  • We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Users simply choose a song, and then follow the snowflakes on screen to tap the bells and play the song. Or, they can simply hit “auto-play” and the app will play the song with no wear and tear on the user’s finger.  If desired, the app can auto-play all of the songs one after the other.

New for this season is a holiday-themed sticker pack for iMessage. Stickers include golden bells, stars, “Merry Christmas” and “Ho ho ho!” stickers, animated music notes, a music sheet and songbook, an animated glowing candle with flickering flame, a green wreath with gold ribbon and bells, 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 Belles is available for iOS devices running iOS 10 or later, and is $0.99 in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
