App of the day: Ringtones

If you’re using an iPhone, you probably came across the problem with custom ringtones. On all my earlier phones, it was quite easy – I just selected the music from my library as a ringtone.

Unfortunately, Apple made it quite painful to do that. One way to do it is to buy the ringtone from iTunes Store. But, as much as I respect copyright and paying artists for the music and so on, paying $1.29 for 30 second ringtone (the same amount you pay for the track) is a bit too much. Especially, if you have different ringtones for different contacts + you like to change them often, as I do, cause I get annoyed with the same melody after short time.

Luckily, there is another way to fix this problem. It is not very short, but it works. There are several apps that cut the song from your library and turn it into a ringtone. I prefer Ringtones app for it’s easy interface and video with understandable instructions.

This is the main window when you open the app.

After you tap the button, it takes you to your music library.

After you selected the song you would like to turn into a ringtone, you have 2 options -> you can create Ringtone or Text message tone.

Then you slide your finger over a sound-wave to capture the best part of the song. Touch Play to make sure you’re happy with the result and then touch the Save button.
