I want to use some sounds that are available under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, for example here:
http://soundbible.com/tags-chimes.html
The license says you must give "appropriate credit". What exactly does this mean?
Must credit given for each sound individually,like so:
The Shooting Star sound (http://soundbible.com/1744-Shooting-Star.html) is used under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License
or can it be done collectively?
Some sounds in this app are from http://soundbible.com and used under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License

This spells it out for you...
The reality is that any legal action pursued would be because you did not give credit to the original author in some way, thus making it appear as if they were your own creations. I am not a legal professional and if you fear legal action, you should refer your question to an attorney for advice.

The longer and more scary version: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/legalcode
