Ringdroid's free ringtone app creates tones, alarms, and notifications from MP3, WAV,AAC/MP4, 3GPP/AMR files you load onto your phone through the SD card or that you purchase through the Amazon MP3 store. Unlike many Android apps that use the Menu keys to store some software functions, most of Ringdroid's controls are out on the interface and all respond to touch. You can set the start and ending notes by sliding arrows along the timeline, by pressing Start and End to record the point, or by typing in time stamps.
Zoom buttons help set precise marks on the timeline. It might still take some prolonged trial and error to get your tone just right; part of that is the nature of the beast. Yet since Ringdroid is equipped with a Record button on the app interface, there's always the opportunity to lay down your own sounds from scratch. Ringdroid misses options for fading in and out, looping, and equalizing song selections--that would be a good addition for the Menu button, or for a pro version. Still, Ringdroid's ease of use makes it a great choice for people to create free ringtones from their own music collections.
