Fireplace HD+, developed by Rory Buckley, will turn your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad into a virtual fireplace which plays a super realistic animation of fire. Not only can you use Fireplace HD+ to set the mood, but you can also play some included tunes at the same time.
The included background audio consists of 12 Days of Christmas, O Christmas Tree, Silent Night, and Flowers and Chocolate. iPad users have the added luxury of being able to play a selection of radio stations, these stations range from Jazz, Oldies, Classical, Relaxation & Christmas.
If you are like me and enjoy sleeping by the fire and falling asleep to relaxing music, this is the app for you. Just the sound of crackling fire is awesome and adding background music to it is so relaxing. You also have the option to set a sleep timer which will pause the video and audio which is playing. You can set the sleep timer to 10, 30, or 60 minutes. This is perfect if your using the application for relaxation or a sleep aid.
I do want to mention that there are two different fireplace settings. The traditional look and the modern look. I think that the traditional look is the best and find it most relaxing. You should also make sure your screen is super clean and free from smudges, otherwise it will run the overall look.
Fireplace HD+ is a universal application. That means you only have to purchase it once and you have access for all of your devices including the iPad. It costs just $0.99, so go check it out if you want to virtually worm up your winter!
