Mobel is a bell ringing simulator for church bell ringers and handbell change ringers. When ringers are at home, travelling or at towers, Mobel lets them practise any method they are going to ring. It also shows the blue line diagram for any method, including bobs and singles.

Practise any method on 4 to 16 bells.

Ring plain courses, or touches that Mobel creates (including spliced). Add your own touches (compositions).

Ring any bell; handbell ringers can ring any pair.

Mobel rings the other bells, and speaks any calls.

Conduct: put in bobs and/or singles yourself.

See the blue line diagram for any method or composition that you have added.

Line styles with or without the underlying bell numbers, or as a grid.

Lines for bobs and singles.

Pinch to zoom the diagram.

Select from 19, 000 methods in the microSIRIL library.

Change the speed of the ringing.

Ring with or without a handstroke gap.

Have Mobel wait if you hesitate - or continue in perfect rhythm.

Edit methods and calls to create new methods or doubles variations.

Basic instructions for using Mobel:

- Tap a bell to select it for ringing.

- Tap Start to start the bells ringing rounds.

- Then tap Go to ring the current composition and method.

- Tap the bottom of the screen to ring the bell you selected.

- For handbells, tap right and left to ring a pair.

- Conducting: tap the top of the screen for a bob or single.

- Tap Show to see the blue line for the current method.

- Then double tap to change line style, or pinch to zoom.

- Tap the info (i) button to view and change settings.

- Tap the Help buttons for further information.

Mobel comes from AbelSim, producer of the world's best-selling change ringing simulators: Abel for Windows PCs and Mabel for Apple Mac (see www.abelsim.co.uk).

Mobel is not intended for handbell tune ringers: it rings changes, not tunes.

Version 2.1.1 runs on iOS 8 and later. Earlier versions of Mobel are still available for previous versions of iOS.

What's New in Version 2.2.1

A couple of minor improvements.

English Change Ringing

As a music app, this supplies pleasant bell sounds of English church and town towers, or the music of a tuned set of handbells rung in changes. What are changes? The bells are rung one after another in an ever-changing sequence, to a constant steady rhythm. The result is a kaleidoscope of ringing without ever an actual chord, but with harmonic interaction due to the persistence of each bell's sound. Most folks find it cheerfully musical, and of course English village expatriates tend to be very nostalgic for it. You can choose from a huge library of methods, and can regulate the number and speed (but not the pitch) of the bells. For those new to listening to this kind of music, I would recommend starting with the methods named Grandsire or Stedman, on eight bells (of which seven are changing places). BTW, proceeds from sale of Mobel are currently being entirely donated to bell restoration funds.

If you are a change ringer, this app was designed for you, and I believe you will find it well worth the price. It does not, of course, replace the experience of pulling a bell rope or ringing two handbells in the company of other capable ringers, but it can be a powerful assistant in training the mind for ringing methods from plain hunt on four bells to the most complex methods on larger numbers of bells. By training yourself in this way, you can practice many aspects of ringing without wasting valuable group practice time, and make significant progress between practice meetings. The developer has been quick to add features and improve the user experience. I highly recommend Mobel to anyone who aspires to be or become a better change ringer.
