Description of App

A first for smart phone users; set to change communication interaction as we know it forever. An integrated bites keyboard makes using your app sounds really fun & easy!

It's been a while since anything new and exciting for instant messaging has hit the market, it’s time for the next evolution.

bites is the ONLY iPhone app that lets you share licensed sound bites with your friends in instant messaging & your Apple Messages keyboard.

The bites sound App was created to redefine messaging and instant messaging platforms. The concept is simple, enhance messaging platforms by enabling the simple use and sharing of customised sound bites that relate to everyday life. These bites stimulate the conversation which will ultimately take communication to the next level. As the humble emoticon once replaced the use of exclamation marks in text messaging by allowing the user to more accurately describe their emotions with the use of graphic icons, bites’ ultimate goal is to enhance instant messaging by supplying users with compelling sound bites. Users of the app will now be able to portray descriptive feelings or explanations in their conversations and communication using the sounds that relate to those emotions.

The app is packed with beautifully designed buttons which are linked to an array of bites licensed sounds for user sharing.

The bites app lets you manage your sounds in the app LIBRARY & with the ‘BROWSE' section, users are able to choose to download additional sounds to become a part of their personal libraries and keyboard.

bites is set to add multiple new sounds to the platform for each update. Users can expect to see loads of new sounds that can further add to their conversations and experiences.

We have packed in over 180 free sounds for users to share.

A request feature enables users to communicate with the team at bites to get new sound bites to the app on demand.

The app size is no greater than 50 megabytes so you won’t need to worry about space on your device.

In app purchases for additional sound effects are charged to your iTunes account.

Play, share, enjoy, download more, repeat.

Accessibility Comments

There's 1 or 2 unlabelled buttons, and the ones that are labelled have somewhat long descriptions, but other than that this app works perfectly.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

When I opened this app for the first time, it asked me to accept the privacy policy, followed by locking up. After I enabled the app in the messages App Store however both the home screen icon, used to preview bites, send them to other apps or buy new ones, as well as the interface for iMessage, work fine.

I need some help getting this app to work.
I downloaded the app and agreed to their terms and condition.
I then activated the app in the Messenger apps and it locks up my phone.
What steps am I missing?

After I got the app for the first time, which locked up my phone, I went into messages, then hit messaging apps>store>manage and enabled bites sounds there. Then, when I returned to the messaging apps screen and picked the app there, both the iMessage app and home screen icon started working fine and I haven't experienced any lag again.

The other person doesn't need the app to hear them.

You have to go into the message app and into a convo from there. then you can find the messaging apps button.

OK, I have the app. I want to send sounds on Whatsapp. There is nothing on my keyboard that indicates sounds from Bites. When I go to the app and choose a sound, then choose send, Whatsapp is not one of the options. Also, I still see nothing about Messaging App on my phone.So I cannot go to a convo? I am lost. Is it possible to get step by step instructions? The Bites website is useless.
