I immediately thought that she must have a Salvation Army iphone app. At least it might be an iphone app that gives instructions on how to ring the bell with the proper Salvation Army procedure (left/right vs. up/down, short rings vs. long, etc). I temporarily thought that maybe, just maybe, my New Yorker cynicism was getting a little over the top.
Then I visited the app store and found not one but two Salvation Army Apps! One was free and was the actual ringing of the bell as you shake the phone. They had 12 different bell sounds as part of it. The second cost $2.99 and played Salvation Army Christmas carols on the iphone. I wonder if it simulated the sound of the euphonium. Unfortunately, my budget for this quest for useless knowledge would be exceed if I bought the $2.99 app so I'll never know.
I do now have an increased respect for the Salvation Army for trying a little different fund raising approaches in this difficult economy. I'll probably toss a few extra bucks in the kettle but will probably wait until I see one with a real euphonium player with a real bell ringer or two. Of course if there was a whole bell chorus playing iphone bells that would warrant consideration too!
Ring. Ring. Ring.
I thought you were joking but there REALLY is an app for that. I guess I should get myself an iphone.
That is hilarious on the app. I walked passed our bell ringer twice (make the 4x - 2 going in and 2 out) and thought its too soon.
No money until I eat some bird.
I might have to download that...
I can't believe there is an app for that!
My son plays the euphonium. And he never thought that would be a valuable skill!!
I'm getting that for sure!
Wow they're off to an early start. I'm all for charity. It's the whole black Friday thing that's already wearing on me.
That's a riot!!!
