Never pay for another ringtone!

Ringtone Designer allows you to create unlimited custom ringtones, text tones, and alerts using songs in your iPhone's music library. Use the beautiful interface to adjust your ringtone length. Then swipe the audio wave to select a short clip, and your ringtone is ready. It's that easy! Get started creating custom ringtones and text tones for everyone in your address book.

For a limited time, you also get a free text tone pack from TextRocker.com when you create your first ringtone with this app. After you download the app, see the Ringtone Designer File Sharing section in iTunes for details.

(Note: Text tone and email alerts require iOS5)

(Note: Ringtone Designer allows you to make ringtones, text tones, and alerts anytime, but you need to sync with iTunes to get the ringtones into the Settings section of your iPhone. Don't worry. It's quick, easy, and we even have a video to show you how.)

Everyone needs this app. If your contemplating on if you should download it, you should trust me! It's easy and you'll fall in love with it and soon recommend it to your friends. App is amazing!

  • I knew it was too good to be true!

    by Chcgojoe

    Tried many many songs and all I got was sorry that song cannot be made into a ringtone. LAME! If I have to do all these steps like people outlined, forget it, I'll be happy with what the phone has already.

  • 5 stars

    by Jordan McKay

    It's awesome!

  • Great way to select you fav part

    by SexyBonn

  • Ringtones ROCKS

    by underdog64

    I did not like that the only option was to purchase ringtones. I LOVE that you can use your songs to make your own!!!' Sooo cool and saves $$$$&

  • It works

    by Geekoutshappen

    It works read the instructions

  • Does not work for all main audio formats!!!

    by kevaquarian $

    I'm sure this is cool if you don't run into the problem that I encountered in the first 2 seconds. Does not allow wav files to be used. I can only guess whether the paid "Pro" version supports wavs - I bet it doesn't though. I've heard others saying they have files refused - they don't know why. But I bet it's because of the file format ;-/ I don't know what type(s) it does allow to be used, as I deleted it as soon as this became apparent. Too many realistic competitors around to be testing this app in that sort of detail. Dev should put this info on the app details page??? Shame.

  • 5 Stars

    by Donnieralan2011

    Great app! Wish I would have found it earlier

  • Love it!

    by Dylan Phelps

    This app is awesome. Only thing that would make it better would to make it automatically save in your ringtones w/o having to go through iTunes

  • Great app

    by Dilkhush55

    This is an awesome app'

  • Stupid

    by Joey jr bob

    This app is stupid if you don't have music on iTunes . It's a waste of 2 min if you don't have music

  • Great App

    by Dhdidbeifhdbdhdjdbd

    I have never even been in iTunes before using this app .. The video explained everything very clearly .. Very simple and easy to understand .. Overall I'm definitely satisfied .. Thanks :)

  • Cool app

    by LadiSw33tZ

    I really like this app. Better then others I've had. Love how you can make ringtones AND text tones . Wish you didn't have to go on iTunes every time you make one though

    Works well. Easy to make in ringtones. Has Video to show you how to get them on you phone.

  • Great app!

    by carson63

    This app sure delivers. Getting to use your own music in my opinion is the best! Great music + great app = endless possibilities. From text to call it sure deserves a five!

  • Love It ALOT YES!!

    by Andrew Yance

    I Love this app, BUT there are the cons to it. For example, some songs can't be made into a ringtone and I'm really upset with this and I would appreciate it if that problem can be checked out and fixed.

  • Super

  • Eh

    by Thor6991


  • I did love this app

    by Alley n Austin

    I did love this app but when I updated my iTunes account all of a sudden none of the songs I wanted to make into ringtones could be made. So now the app is worthless to me too bad it's not the apps fault but iTunes

  • Superb

    by LordMaitreya

    Perfect ringtone designer. It is very simple to download any song and choose a section for a ringtone. You then transfer the ringtone to your computer and then back into iTunes under the tones section. Works every time! I would highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to save money by making custom ringtones.

  • Annoying

    by Brette Elwell

    Won't let me use any of the songs in my library. This is useless.

  • Get. It. Now.

    by ABNmike

    "This IS the app you are looking for..." ;-)

  • Awesome app!!!

    by Caracok

    It takes a minute to figure it out, but totally worth it. Now I can make all my fav songs ringtones without spending anything!


    by Aditi86

    This app is amazing for those who are crazy about ringtones. If this app had a function to suppress the voice, it would've received a 5 star rating.

  • Awesome!!

    by lili711

    Works flawlessly and has GREAT videos explaining how to do everything. I love this app!!

  • Doesn't sync

    by killafish

  • WOW

    by _leighabbigal

    I have had this app before and It works perfectly! If u want to make your own tunes use this one!

  • Garbage

    by corey mcphee

    I have almost 1,000 songs bought from iTunes and over 90% of them don't work! Please fix, I want this to work.

  • Great app

    by LovedbymySavior

    Great app and easy to use. Very happy I was told about it. Highly recommended.

  • Perfect

    by lolhalz

    It's really easy! All you have to do is 1make the ringtone 2 take your USB and plug into computer 3 go on iTunes and click on ringtones :)


    by msiersfoster

    Used this app for about a year and while it worked like a charm with the old operating system, iOS 7 is too much for it, crashed my system and will no longer work. Spent in excess of an afternoon trying to get this squared away, contacted Apple, they were able to help with all other apps but could not get this one to work. Sent email to Blacklight and have heard nothing in response, not even an apology. Good luck to you if you are planning on dealing with these folks once they have your $$$$ forget about any help from them. Thanks loads, hope you are enjoying my money.

  • Love it

    by tootsie81

  • by Herminiasoto

    This app is amazing I think everyone should have it. I love it ! There is no other app like this one.

  • Thumbs Up

    by smileyy_atf

    this app is exactly what I was looking for! It's Great, a little complicated at first but it's worth learning the steps!

  • LOVE it!!

    by Kabriel55

    Would be great if it downloaded straight to phone, but five stars for doing what it says it will do and doing it great.

  • Not functional

    by kellyladolcevita

    I just downloaded this app. I've used it in the past with no problem. Every time I select a song, it says "Sorry...Song can't be made into a ringtone." I was able to do one song initially. Tried another and nothing. I thought it was a fluke, so I chose the song that I successfully downloaded before, and wasn't able to do it again. It was a great app, and was worthy of 5 stars at one point, but not any longer. Also, when selecting the fade button for the tone, it's glitchy when the tone starts up. Not a good sound. I'll give a five star review when the issue's resolved. Uninstalling for now.

  • Great App

    by LMJ_HNIC

    Never thought I was going to be able to create custom ringtones and text tones for my IPhone and I actually gave up trying till I tried this app.

  • Love it!!

    by JudgeSteel

    by Joeyortiz82

    I love it. It's so easy to use :)


    by Lexi rose $$$$

    I have an iPhone and the app is that just does not work for the iPhone I really wanted to get this one ring tone girl on fire. I tried so many ring tone making apps and they all were really complicated and when I tried to sync them to my phone it would say they were too long. When I found this app it's it was smooth and easy to use I definitely recommend this app for people who arent that good with technology or get confused by it!

    by Sarah_Smiles

    This app works! But didn't there use to be a "fade" effect for the ringtones? I remember seeing that, but ever since the last updates, I don't see it anymore.
