Ringtone Maker sets out to enable users to “mix” their own ringtones from various individual sound files. Each file serves as a building block, and you select where the tune begins and where is ends. The sequence can then be added to your ringtone (you select where you which to integrate it).
While it isn't possible to actually mix the sequence in the true sense of the term, there is a fade in/out feature, if that's any consolation.
You also select at which volume each sequence should play.
So what does the final outcome sound like?
In short: pretty good. The fade in/out is a fun feature and individual tones are correct. Once you're done creating your personalised ringtone you may save it as one of the following formats:
Ringtone Maker performs well and does exactly what it promises to do. It can be used to create ringtones for your smartphone, but also alarms and notifications. Its controls are conveniently located on the interface, which makes a nice change from having to dig through menus.
Screen & Controls
Ringtone Maker is easy and intuitive to use. It's a basic app that doesn't come with tons of fancy extras, but sometimes simple is best, as is the case with Ringtone.
Selecting individual sequences couldn't be any easier or more precise. Nicely done.
Speed & Stability
The application ran smoothly throughout our test, though tunes take a while to load. Processing sounds takes even longer.
Ringtone Maker did not crash on us once.
Ringtone Maker is free of charge from Google Play. This app can compete with other applications for which you have to pay as far as quality goes, and we like that.
