  • 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
    Version: 1.0.01-3
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Cocoanuts

      If you only use it for creating the ringtone there's nothing wrong with the stock app whatsoever. It's simple to use. My 8 year old could do it. Definitely worth 5.00 especially since ringtones (decent ones) are .99.

      In a future update you should consider allowing users to manually input the start and end times. It's virtually impossible to get an exact second with the slide bars.

      Yeah, but that's not the whole point of Rinngo.

      You still need a computer to do what you're saying. Rinngo is all done on the device, and it imports the ringtone into your ringtone library for you on the fly without needing to sync with iTunes.

      Yes, but once again, UnlimTones does the exact same thing, doesn't need iTunes, and is free.

      This new app sounds great but not worth shelling out $5 for... I sifted they all the ringtone apps but could not find Unlimitones anywhere! Can anyone tell me who developed it or why I can't find it? I'd love a ringtone maker that doesn't force me to connect to a PC or Mac to do so... Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks for the quick reply, but I don't have Cydia! That would explain it! Thanks again.

      As far as I'm concerned, it's not a matter of price, it's a matter of which dev I'm paying my cash to. Cocoanuts won't get one more single cent from me, and I'm sure those who bought Celeste or some other tweak from them will agree.
      Not saying I'll pirate it, I'll just rely to someone worthier of my cash.
