Fortunately, many iPhone and iPad app developers are smart and give away some free eye candy so you’ll be inclined to plunk down a few dollars for the real stuff after you’re hooked on the freebie.
Free Costs $1.99 But Scares Spirits
I grew up in a modest neighborhood in Spain, in a house with twenty eleven brothers and sisters and at least that many wind chimes on the front and back porch.
Adult life in sunny San Diego is more contemporary and less tradition (Porch? We don’t need no stinking porch!), therefore, no wind chimes.
Imagine my delight when browsing the App Store that I came across a digital wind chimes app.
What can I say? Breeze is a handful of realistic wind chimes without the wind. iPhone or iPad, Breeze gives you plenty of choices in wind chime styles and sounds.
Sounds, they’re perfect. Almost. Run your fingertips across the chimes and that deliciously refreshing sound from yesteryear emanates from your iPhone’s speaker or headphones.
Using Breeze and selecting different wind chimes is drop dead easy, too.
Tap the screen to bring up the Breeze control panels.
Selection a wind chime and try it out. Breeze even gives you controls so you can modify the sounds for even more varied wind chimes.
What’s not to like? The sounds are faithful reproductions of wind chimes, easily modified to match your tastes and your ear.
Nothing this inexpensive or classy is without a caveat or two.
Unfortunately, Breeze doesn’t put the sound in the background so you can check email or browse while listening to light digital breezes produce lovely digital sounds on your virtual and digital wind chime app.
Oh, there’s one more added benefit to Breeze’s wind chimes. My mother and grandmother are visiting and both agree that wind chimes have the added benefit of chasing away evil spirits. I agree. Already, there’s spirits missing from the liquor cabinet.
