Ringdroid

Android users unite and bring to life of one of the best advantages your phones have over the competition - the ability to create customized ringtones from any song you own and do it right from your phone! Ringdroid makes it possible. Read my short review of why you need it and why it's the best ringtone maker out there!


App Profile:
Type: Ringtone maker
Platform: Android
Developer: Ringdroid Team
Reason for downloading: To make customer ringtones from music on your phone.

Welcome to the freedom of Android. Now that you're here, sit down and stay a while because while your friends are paying $1.29 each for pre-made ringtones on their iPhones, you're going to be making your own ringtones for free from any song you have. Not only is it going to be free, but you can start the ringtone at any point in the song and end it at any point in the song. That means you're in total control of your own ringtones (for once!).

How's it work? I will tell you! First, download the app - Ringdroid - from Google Play (formerly known as the Android Market) on your phone. Then, open the app. From here it will bring you to a page that displays all the music currently on your phone's memory or any micro-SD cards you may have in the phone. Next, select a song from the list. If you have a lot of music, it is easiest to simply search the list by typing in the name of the song or an artist. Tap on the song you want to have as your ringtone.

From here, you get to select the section of the song you'd like to have as your ringtone. In the review, I selected "Battle-Axe" by the Deftones. It displayes the sound waves throughout the song and you'll notice that part of the screen is highlighted to be brighter than the rest. This is the section that's currently selected to be the ringtone.

You can move the selection by tapping and dragging the gray rectangles at the top-left and bottom-right of the screen either left or right. This is where you can make your ringtone as long or as short as you like. I recommend at least a 45 second ringtone to make sure it doesn't repeat itself before you have a chance to answer.

You'll notice there is a play button. By tapping this you can preview the highlighted section of the song - your future ringtone - and make adjustments as necessary. You can even fine-tune it by entering the exact time, down to the millisecond, that you would like to start the ringtone and stop it. Once you have it exactly how you want it, hit that little floppy disk button on the bottom that apparently still means save (even though it's the 21st century and floppy disks have not been used widely for about ten years) and you've just made your ringtone! A window pops up automatically that asks you if you would like to assign it to a contact, set it as your default ringtone, or do nothing, but you can always set it as your ringtone under settings the same way you set any other ringtone. Now... go have some free Android fun!
