  • Ringtone Creation Apps Becoming Big Draw for App Store



    The ramifications of the Apple's revised App Store Review Guidelines have effectively changed many longstanding policies of one of the most notoriously stringent policy-stickler companies in the tech world. With every passing week, it appears that the updated guidelines permit something new in the App Store that, until now, had never been permissible. Case in point: iPhone ringtone creation apps. The refreshed App Store Review Guidelines now allow for the creation and availability of custom ringtone creation apps - those that originate from third-party developers.

    Developers (in great numbers) are shifting into ringtone-maker-mode. As recently highlighted by Mobile Crunch, several have already been submitted and given access to the Holy Grail of the app world - the App Store. They include: Best Ringtone Maker, Ringtone Designer Pro, Music Ringtone Maker, Ringtone Maker Pro, Custom Ringtone Maker, and others.

    While the existence of ringtone creation apps isn't totally groundbreaking (since, you know, we could do it already using other software and technologies) it's a first to be able to create iPhone ringtones from a ringtone-specific app from the App Store. So, without question, the big news here isn't that the App Store now offers applications that provide this function. It's that Apple now allows the App Store to offer those particular apps. And when Apple lets its hair down... it opens a whole new world of possibilities to developers and the millions who enjoy their creations.

      If so They have to separate jailbreak and unlock from each other. The unlock should be just entering a code or something. This Is the biggest problem BUT Apple are making it harder to unlock because if someone backed up their SSH you can downgrade from 4.1 but you loose your unlock ultrasn0w wont work, I have personally experienced this with a 3gs. I buy most of my apps excluding overpriced tom-tom and navigon. I don't think I would jailbreak if my phone was easy to unlock. SO FUK APPLE

      you don't even need a jailbroken phone to create ringtones...use garage band and BOOM!!! Any ringtone of ANY length, import into itunes.

      Until you can use the the ring tones created with your iphone without having to sync them first through itunes then I'm not interested.

      I guess that this could be news to some, but I thought it was already pretty well known. Either way, these just get bunched with the few hundred thousand other apps that I find unnecessary.

      I can see how some people are interested in this type of news though so Messany shall live for another day :P

      I am hoping for this too. I know they are suppose to allow individual ringtones for contacts, but I haven't seen any confirmation on the importing of custom tones yet. Let's hope so.

      It will be possible, but most likely will have to be a jb tweak like most cool things
