Choosing the right ringtone for your phone can be the difference between looking like a cool dude or a complete idiot.
Ringdroid is a free app that lets you make ringtones on your Android phone. You can use it to edit songs that are in your music library or record audio and edit that as a ringtone. The outputted creations can be set for use as an alarm, a notification or, of course, a ringtone.
Using Ringdroid to make ringtones is a very simple process. When you start the program a list of all the music on your device is displayed and you just tap on a track to open it in the editor. This editor displays a waveform representing the song you selected, and you can review the track using the Play, Back and Forward buttons. Selecting the chunk you want to use as your ringtone is as simple as dragging the sliders to the start and end points you want. There's a handy zoom function to help you out if you need it.
Ringdroid also includes a feature for recording sounds then launching them into the editor. Again, this is very easy to do, and it even includes a gage to check the sound input levels.
Once you've finished editing your ringtones in Ringdroid, you're given the option to instantly make this your default ringtone, or assign the tone to a particular contact. Of course, you can always change this in your call settings at any time.
Ringdroid's audio editing features are very basic and there are no effects that you can apply to your creations.
However, if you're looking for a simple way to make Android ringtones, Ringdroid is the perfect solution.
