CNET Editors' review

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.

    "Uses Airpush to copy ads to your Phone"

    December 1, 2012  |   By jimstinnett

    Version: ringdroid 1.0

    Pros

    If you like an anonymous source broadcasting spammy little ads to your personal phone's screen, then this is the app for you.

    Cons

    Using this application to pump ads on to people's phones is NOT ok. It's an invasion of privacy. I looked through the TOS and there is no mention of how they would use the app to put crap on my phone.
    Get Airblocker to end that practice.

    Summary

    The practice of spamming in any context is an outright violation of basic standards. RingDroid is the ap that puts this on your phone and they are shameless POS spammers.

    "Great Software"

    August 27, 2012  |   By pprgl

    Version: ringdroid 1.0

    Pros

    I just downloaded this app to my phone and it worked instantly with no problems. I can now use any of my music as ringtones for my phone. There is not a lot of ads or junk with this software.

    Cons

    I have not found anything negative with this app.

    "Neat Tool!"

    May 14, 2011  |   By James_Allen72

    Version: ringdroid 2.4

    Pros

    compatible with a variety of formats
    Great for truly personalizing your phone with a truly unique ringtone

    Cons

    Maybe just more of a preference issue: I'd like to actually edit the ringtone on my desktop, then transfer that to my phone. The functionality actually could be there, but I haven't found it.

    Summary

    This is a great tool for those of us who like to hear our favorite song when our phone rings, or for setting up a ringtone for a particular person on your contact list. Takes a little time to figure it out, but that's because there's so much functionality!

    "Captivate Galaxy S AT&T"

    September 29, 2010  |   By mjrydsfast

    Version: ringdroid 2.2

    Pros

    Nice to have a notification tone option

    Cons

    music skips like a bad cd or vinyl when music selected as "notification". If Ringtone or alarm, it's fine.

    Summary

    With my BBy, I had three different tones for all three email clients. On the Droid, it's not even an option unless I download Ringdroid (so I was told). I've been on with tech support for over 30 minutes at AT&T, then Samsung, now back to AT&T and still on hold. Bottom line is that if this is what I need to do to get a clear notifications, it isn't worth it.

    "Good app to make ringtones"

    May 4, 2010  |   By kyhendry

    Version: ringdroid 2.2

    Pros

    ?Allows you to pinpoint the area of the song, not just the second so you get the exact ringtone you want.
    ?Lets you assign it to a specific contact right there.

    Cons

    Can be a little hard to get the top and bottom set points close to where you need with just using touch.

    "Great for making your own ringtones"

    March 16, 2010  |   By EALChilazr

    Version: ringdroid 2.2

    Pros

    Easy to use, great interface, ringtone sound quality is the same as the original song

    Cons

    No fade-in/out, doesn't actually assign the ringtone to a contact, somewhat limited formats.

    Summary

    This is a great app. The songs are played at full quality as your ringtone and not compressed or shredded like some other apps I've seen. It's really easy to pick out what part of the song you want. You can have it as short as you want, or you can pick as long a segment.
    The few complaints I have are pretty minor. You can decide if fade-in/out is a positive for you. I'd like it, but it's certainly not a deal breaker. When it says if you'd like to assign your new ringtone to a contact, and you select one, it doesn't actually do it. You still have to go into "contacts" and assign it there. Not a huge problem, but it seems to be a broken part of the program. And the formats are somewhat limited. I have MP3 and WMA files on my phone, but it will only convert the MP3 files. A minor headache, but I guess it's worth mentioning.
    All that said, this is a must have app. If they fix those things, then I'd have no problem giving this app 5 stars.

    "Nifty piece of software"

    January 11, 2010  |   By watsont79

    Version: ringdroid 2.1

    Pros

    Very easy to create ringtones from your music files. With it's graphic interface it automatically cuts about the first 15 seconds of a song. The start and end points are easily adjusted to come up with great custom ring tones.

    Cons

    The tap start and stop while playing didn't correctly set the start and end times of the clip on my Motorola Droid.

    Summary

    Great app. Moving the sliders to adjust the clip is so easy that not being able to directly cut out the middle of a song doesn't bother me at all. Usually the first 10 to 30 seconds of the song is a good enough hook to make a great ringtone.
