Best 10 iPhone Ringtone Apps
There are numerous Application categories available in the app store that are appreciated either for making our lives easier or for their wonderful user interface. The ringtones apps section is no exception and many of the app featured in the App store have indeed a very well designed user interface and remarkable usability. Since with the iPhone there are virtually no choices regarding factory personalization except the color, it is natural that people try to stand out from the crowd and make their device more personal. There is nothing more confusing than the standard iPhone ringtone options.
Just like you imagined there are hundreds of iPhone ringtone apps available out there and that is why we decided to present you the ones that we tested and feature a very attractive user interface and pack a lot of functionality. It is also important to tell you from the start that each iPhone ringtone app that we tested and will present to you costs less than $1 so that the price tag won’t set you back from enjoying a good song as a your ringtone. Each and every one of these apps will make you able to create custom ringtones for your iPhone using your current music playlists or even record your own sounds.
How does an iPhone Ringtone app work?
As many of you well know, developers are not allowed to access the ringtone directory of the iPhone (a jailbreak is needed for that), many of the apps that will be presented below wew forced to stick to the same method for installing a new ringtone on your iPhone. And that is through an USB cable and of course the file sharing option in iTunes. You will have to save the file on let’s say your desktop then put it back again in the iTunes Ringtones section. Afterwards a simple sync between your iTunes and your iPhone will do the job and you’ll see the desired ringtones in your iPhone ringtone menu. There is no question about it, multiple steps make a poorer user experience but if you don’t want to jailbreak this is pretty much the only way. Some apps try to make the process more smooth by also adding a Dropbox option to their apps but this still isn’t a single step process.
