There is a new application from Twisted Castle called RanDinger. It is a really neat application that allows you to preview music as your ringtone. If you like U2, or rock music, or want to hear the current top 40 as your ringtones just setup RanDinger and you will immediately begin receiving ringtones based on your selection. After you end the call you can purchase the full track directly to your phone, no need to connect your mp3 player to a computer. It's an easy way to set your mp3 as ringtone.

It is a cool way to hear new music that I normally would not hear or be one of the first to have the new top charting track because it rang on my phone. It is very unique and is a whole new way to customize your phone. There are two versions a paid ($2.99) and free. The free version only allows a user to receive ringtones of the current top 20 tracks, with paid you can select your favorite artist or favorite type of music to further customize the experience.

Sounds like a very good idea. But I have a question, how do you license the top songs? Are you violating any copyrights by giving out the songs as ringtones?

That's a good question, we do not violate any copyright laws. We have partnered with a online music service called 7digital and have acquired all the necessary licensing to provide this service. We encourage people to purchase the music as this helps give back to the artists that are providing the content to make applications such as this possible. Our product is also patent pending as we do not want people taking this idea and using this with illegally obtained materiel that will not give anything back to the artists and music industry.

That's good to hear. I often see questionable music services being advertised with no word included on how the music is distributed and who pays for the rights to the music and what-not. I wonder, though, how this compares to simply setting your mp3 as ringtone?
