Description

For toddlers and parents who need a fun distraction.

• Hear bubbles popping.
• See bubbles fly from your fingers.
• Feel gravity pull your bubbles downward.
• Draw bubble letters, numbers, and shapes.

I created Bubbles to entertain my daughter for a 12 hour plane flight to Korea in 2008. I hope it provides some entertainment for you and your kids too.

My favorite is to play Bubbles with my kids before bed. We try to draw letters, numbers, or just fling them about. Tip: Flip your iPad or iPhone upside down to slow the bubbles down for easier drawing.

Have fun!

Version History

Launched Jul 08, 2008 (over 11 years ago).

Releasing new versions every 5 months, on average.

(Current)
Version 4.1.1

Bug fix release, should now work on IOS 7 without crashing.

Jul 21
2015
Version 4.1

Bubbles are now a little more lively.

They fade over time and a parallax effect is applied. These are small tweaks that I don't think will be noticeable unless you really look for them. But I do think they subtly make the bubble feel a little more alive while helping to make new bubbles "pop" out a bit better.

If you are experience the crash on start problem please email me jesse@hogbaysoftware.com. It haven't been able to reproduce the problem an need your help.

Version 4.0

Once again it's simpily about bubbles.

Somewhere along the way, in the name of "make it better", I lost what I liked most about Bubbles. It's a simple app meant for small children and parents. It doesn't need in-app-purchases, fancy animations, and options screens. That's all gone now.

Bubbles 4 is just about bubbles. Drag to create & tap to pop. I've made the animations better for little kids. It's now easier to see POPS! And new bubbles arive in style instead of like giant slow jellyfishes.

I've also added a special drawing mode. My favorite way to use Bubbles in collaboratively with kid in lap. Often we try to draw letters and shapes. This is now much easier in special "slow bubbles" mode. Flip your iPad or iPhone upside down and the Bubbles will slow down and stay in place making drawing much easier. "Shake" to clear them all, or turn your iPad or Phone to make them drop off screen.

Bubbles 4 is also a rewrite that modernized all the code to keep Bubbles working many years down the road.

I hope you and your kids have fun with it.

If your bubble packs cause any crashing, use the "Restore" button in the store to re-download a fresh copy.

If you can't hear the bubble popping sounds, please check your mute switch!

Thank you for all your wonderful support and we hope this version fixes any iOS 6 issues for you!

Version 3.2.3

A few quick notes:
1. No sound? Check your mute switch (the iPad side switch), it overrides your volume controls in the app.
2. Crashing bubbles? Try redownloading the bubble packs (tap Restore in the Store view) or delete/reinstall the app and then restore your purchases). Thanks!

Release Notes:
- Updated for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 (now requires iOS 4.3+)
- Updated app icon for Retina displays

We're still cooking up more bubble packs. In the meantime, how has everyone's day been going?

Version 3.2.1

Fixed: IAP crashes

Nov 22
2011
Version 3.2

★ Added back tap to create behavior setting.
★ Claymation set included for free in Bubbles download.

NOTE: We have uploaded a new version of the Christmas Boxes IAP to fix a crash issue. You may have to reinstall Bubbles and restore your Bubble Sets to download the new version. I'm very sorry about this bug, and a big thank you to everyone who reported it!

2011
Version 3.1

★ Added back tap to create behavior.
★ Added more spacing around 1-2-3 settings lock.

Version 3.0:

I'm trying something new: Bubbles is now free, and more great bubble sets are available via in-app purchase. My favorite is "Fall Leaves", though my 2 year-old prefers the loud popping from the "Balloons" set.

To get these new sets and switch between your existing sets tap 1-2-3. The simple passcode is intended to keep young toddlers out, while allowing for quick set switching. You can also disable the bubble set list completely through the iOS "Settings" app.

I hope you like this release (requires iOS 4.0 or later) and the new bubble sets. Please post requests for future sets in the iTunes comments. Thanks!
