  • Make Ringtones Out of Songs in Your Music Library With 'Rinngo'


    Chances are that many of you like having custom ringtones on your iOS devices, rather than the built-in ringtones. Unfortunately, if you want a song, iTunes is going to charge you for the ringtone even though you already own the song. You can create your own ringtones manually with a few steps in iTunes, however a new app called Rinngo by iOS development team Cocoanuts lets you do everything right from your iOS device.

    Rinngo uses the power of Action Menu to bring up the Rinngo interface in the Music application. To use Rinngo, just find a song in your music library that you want to make into a ringtone. You can then hold down on the song, and Action Menu will appear with a new Rinngo button. Tap on it:



    After you tap on the Rinngo button, you’ll be brought to the Rinngo interface. The interface looks snazzy. At the bottom is a play button so you can hear the song you picked. You’ll also see a slider on the left and the right of the scrubber bar. You can slide these sliders to crop your ringtone to a manageable length (preferably no more than about 30 seconds). The interface will also show you the name of the song, the artist, and also show you the length of the cropped portion you have selected with the sliders:



    You will be able to tap on the cancel button, or on the Save Ringtone button. Cancel will bring you back to your music library, and save ringtone will use the power of Gremlin to import the cropped music file into your Ringtone library. After you tap on the Save Ringtone button, you can access the ringtone you just made from your ringtone preferences pane in the Settings application and apply it to phone calls:



    With a polished interface, quick import, and absolute ease of use, Rinngo is a great solution to making your own ringtones on the go. Even as a mobile solution, it’s faster than creating your own ringtones on the computer and syncing them to your iOS device. Additionally, applications from the App Store that claim to make creating ringtones easier still require you to tether up to iTunes to sync the ringtones, so they’re not really as handy as Rinngo either.

    Rinngo only works with music files in your Music library, that is, the stock Music application. It won't create ringtones from music in any other application. If you love custom ringtones, Rinngo is a MUST-HAVE! Check it out!

    Name: Rinngo
    Price: $4.99

      This looks like a nice app and I'd buy it if it worked with other music apps. I don't use the stock music app due to its limitations.

      You can "make" your own ringtones via iTunes for free by cropping the music file and converting it to a ringtone file. Buying pre-made ringtones is what costs money in iTunes.

      I really like that they've finally made a good interface and current with ios tweak for this. Honestly I hate the run around with downloading ringtones/making them etc.

      Its a weebit pricey though if you ask me..

      What?! You probably had itunes (back in the day) create your ringtone for you and they charged you.
      They no longer allow you to do that. You buy their premade crap they call ringtones.

      Edit:
      And i know you can make your own ringtone in itunes. Im just stating the old way had apple make it for you

      I agree. And the only reason why i do is because im not a one a day ringtoner anymore. If i still was, $5 would be worth the convienence of not using iTunes.

      Use Ringtone maker from the App store. It's quite a few steps to make it, but it's free nonetheless.
