Creating a ringtone requires only a few basic tools--all of which this application features, but with few extras. AudioGizmo Ringtone Creator's plain interface opens a graphic presentation of your audio file. Clearly defined buttons handle cutting, copying, pasting, deleting, and fading sections of the audio file. However, it's missing a time code display that would have made those functions more precise. Editing is further complicated without such standard commands as "return to beginning," or "delete from here." Still, novice users won't be distracted by numerous options, and the help file teaches basic editing. A completed sound bite can be easily saved as an MP3, WAV, OGG, or WMA format file. Cell phones with USB upload capabilities can then import the final ringtone. Other users can upload the ringtone using the SMS-messaging function. While we wouldn't use this program to make dozens of ringtones or for precise audio file editing, it cleanly handles down-and-dirty ringtone creations from popular audio formats.
Ringtone Creator lets you import an unlimited number of your favorite audio files (MP3, WMA, OGG, and WAV), crop them to a reasonable ringtone length, add fades and amplification, re-encode them to an appropriate bitrate, and upload them to servers for download to your mobile phone. No cables or Bluetooth support required. Ringtone Creator will also send a download link via SMS if your carrier supports this feature. With Ringtone Creator, you can create an unlimited number of ringtones in MP3 format.
Version 2.0.5 may include better installer/uninstaller. Support for more efficient uploading protocol.
