Editors' review

Start with your own music collection on the phone. Sharetones compares your list to its growing database of user-cut ringtones and returns matches. After previewing and picking, Sharetones will extract metadata information about the sample ringtone and rip your own song to match it, including fade-ins and fade-outs. Bottom line: the only person's music you touch is your own.

The application's actual interface is a tad sparse. You can preview the ringtone, pausing or saving it. The menu button reveals options to sort by title or artist, to re-sync the library, and to view the ringtone, alarm, and notifications library. And that's about it. There is no built-in ringtone editor and no album art to spruce up the screen, just the large Sharetones logo to gaze at on the preview screen. There's also no arrow navigation to scroll forward or backward through options, nor a way to tag favorite ringtone matches from a deep results list.

Apart from these cosmetic and navigational upgrades, we'd like to see Sharetones further engage the community by adding editing tools and offering an incentive program, where the author of a new ringtone recipe can download a different tone for free. Yet even in this early stage, Sharetones offers an interesting approach by selling the ringtone-matching-and-ripping service. While not every user is willing to pay for ringtones made from their own songs, some will, especially those looking to acquire ringtones in bulk.
