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.

Review by Mrfixit74403

What a disappointment !!! - First of all let me say my issued is not with the Ringer - Ringtone maker but with Apple!! It is shameful that they continue to market this app for the Mac when they know full well that after you buy it and install it you will be unable to use it. Yes, they have removed the ability to save the newly created ringtones to the Tones folder and then install them on your iPhone. With their latest iTunes updates they have removed the Tones folder forcing us to purchase ringtones from them!!! Upon receiving my new iPhone X i could not even transfer my favorite ringtones I had enjoyed using for years to my new phone because of this. So my advice is be fore you waste your money as I did. Stop and make sure you will actually be able to use the tones you createwith this program !

Review by Jahbless252

App stiil workswith Itunes 12 and Above - Mac Users I found a way around apple not supporting ringotnes anymore. With this app all you have to do is create you another folder and instead of sending your ringtones straight to itunes send it to a particular folder. then go to the folder and drag and drop it into the tones sections while your iphone is plugged up in iTunes. You can do this for all your previous tones also. Great App 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾

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.

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!!

Review by TRKelley01

Disappointed Now - The app worked wonderful for iPhone 6. After upgrading to iPhone X it’s a waste of time and money. None of my ringtones transferred, and suddenly everything worth using is locked out and “protected.” These are songs I have purchased and should have the right to use. Please fix the issue and let me have my ringtones back!
