Ratings and Reviews

Fantastic, but


This is a great app and really easy to use, as everyone else says. However, as far as I can see, the ringtone you create does not loop. I created a short chunk of a track, about 10 seconds, and assumed it would just keep looping (playing over) until I answered the phone. But it didn't. It just played once and then stopped. In other words, you need to create a ringtone that plays long enough for you to get to your phone before it stops. If a loop function/option could be built in, that'd be great. If it's already there and I'm missing it, someone feel free to let me know. Cheers.

Easy to use, one step process


I've been using a mixture of three freely available applications to make ring tones like these in the past, Ringer has everything i like from all of those but without any of the hassle of transcoding formats and renaming files.
Pulls songs directly from itunes inside the appication and exports them back to itunes when you've selected your loop.

Super easy to use and fun too!



This app is an awesome ringtone maker. Even if you don't have an iphone you go to /music/iTunes/iTunes media/ringtones after you have created the ringtone find the song you made and just change the extension to .mp3 then you can put it on any phone that supports .mp3

Really good and highly recommended.
