Simply Excellent - Does what an app should; easily find the song you want from your library from within the app, provide a user friendly tool to cut new song to ringtone length (to include fade in and fade out), automatically import to iTunes, add to tones on your phone, done! Did all of this in less than 5 minutes. One of the most user friendly apps I have ever downloaded from the App store. It’s worth the $7.99, you’ll save time and money because this will be the only ringtone app you’ll need!

Review by Tattooed Fay

Used to work, doesn’t now. - I just deleted and reinstalled the app, but the ringtones I make still sound static-y and horrible. It’s related to the volume level on the side, but even at a 1.0x level I still get pops in the ringtone. Annoying. And if you are going to have a feature to make something louder, make it usable. I used to love this app, but now it’s too finicky to use.

Review by Riptide360

Polished app for making iPhone ringtones from music & movies - I appreciate how Pixel Research has kept this app up to date. Most of my other ringtone apps don’t get updated so if you are in doubt choose this one. Media browser lets you know ahead which iTunes songs are locked, most aren’t, but some are if you bought them back in the day before Apple unlocked them. Select the song - it auto reads your itunes library. Set an in point and out point. It keeps you out of trouble by limiting you to a max of 40 seconds (the longest ringtone Apple allows). Preview, adjust and then hit create. It shows up in your iTunes Ringtones library and next time you do a local sync with your iphone it gets transferred. Feature improvements: - Let the preview keep rolling while the user moves the in or out point. It makes editing easier. - Let users scrub on audio in the set in/out area. I’m usually trying to nail the entrance or exit and having to wait for the whole thing to preview is tedious. - Add the ability to share a ringtone with your friends. Map the SHARE function built into OS X so I can send my custom ringtone to friends. - Create some custom tags for Ringer so I can see folks tweet, Instagram, etc their ringtones with others.

Amazing app! The best! - This has a gorgeous interface and it could not be easier to use, and with all of the ease of use it still has incredible features and gives you total control over your ringtones and alert sounds. Easily worth the purchase!!

Version 2.0.5
Review by Patrick Segovia

Easy to use and great interface - I was pleasently surprised the ease of use and pleasent interface. You can zoom into the music and easily capture the riff you crave to hear. The one thing that would make this app perfict is if one can name the ringtone before the app saves it and sends it to iTunes. Some songs are blessed with multiple good riffs which presents a problem since the app keeps the name of the song when it saves the ringtone.

Version 2.0.5
Review by David of Austin

Does exactly what you think it should, and exactly how you think it should - Title says it all. This app / version does exactly what I bought it for (making ringtones out of music). When you create a ringtone, the ringtone shows up in the iTunes “Tones” section, as you’d expect. The interface is good - you can precisely select your start and end points, have up to a 5s fade in or fade out, and have a gap at the end to allow for some silence before the tone repeats. Everything you want, as you want it, and nothing more. 5 stars from me.
