Breeze: Realistic Wind Chimes
iOS Universel / Forme et santé
Quite simply, breeze is the most realistic and highly rated wind chime app on the App Store!
Some of the comments we have had to date:
"... the whole world fades away. Highly recommended!" - Ke5mte (USA)
"WOW!!" - jazolivia (US)
"The sounds of the chimes is exquisitely accurate." - alex_brin (USA)
"Beautiful sounds" - tusauds (AUS)
"No other app even comes close!" - Pamela (USA)
"... truly exquisite and beautifully done!" - E.H (via email)
"Beyond description. Sound is fantastic, backgrounds are incredible." - jfkaess (USA)
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!
Quoi de neuf dans la dernière version ?
Version 2.0.1 contains a few important bug fixes (if you find a bug, please email me so I can fix it - firstname.lastname@example.org):
- 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.
