Looking for a unique ringtone for your computer or phone just got easier thanks to ringtone making apps.

A ringtone making app is an audio editor that comes with fewer editing features so that you can easily create a ringtone for your phone from your favorite track, with a few clicks.

Some of the benefits of using a ringtone making app include:

  • Creating custom ringtones
  • Modify, edit and cut tracks to size
  • Easy to use as it has no complicated features

If you’re using a Windows 10 phone, here are five ringtone making apps you can use to create your desired tune.

Ringtone Maker by Microsoft

Ringtone Maker by Microsoft

The Ringtone Maker was designed to be a universal app. However, this free app works only on Windows 10 smartphones at the moment, and can be downloaded from the app store to your phone.

It is 3.52 MB in size so it won’t take up much of your storage space. What’s more, you can install it on multiple devices when signed in to your Microsoft account.

With this app, you can create a unique ringtone tailored to your tastes and preferences, by selecting a song from your playlist, and creating a ringtone out of it.

How to create a ringtone using Ringtone Maker

  1. Open the Ringtone Maker app from the app store
  2. Choose your favorite track or song from your music folder
  3. Save the song as a ringtone
  4. Use the editing controls to choose the start, end and length of your ringtone

You can also create notification alerts for messages, emails, alarms, and calendar reminders.

Pros

  • Takes up little space on your phone
  • Supports more than 20 different languages
  • Uses your device network services
  • Uses your saved playlists
  • Can be installed on up to 10 devices

Cons

  • Users have reported a few glitches and bugs

This free app converts your MP3 tracks into ringtones within a short time.

The downside though, is that the app has limited editing control, such as no fade in/out options, and no options to zoom to a specific part of the MP3 file. This can be frustrating for the user as the ringtone starts abruptly if not carefully selected.

  1. Drag and drop an MP3 file onto the window
  2. The app will show your track and time indicators. Adjust by dragging to where you want the track to start and end
  3. Preview the edited track
  4. Select where you want to save and you’re good to go

Note: the app exports your new ringtone to your mobile device whether it is Windows, iPhone, or Android.

Pros

  • Creates a ringtone within seconds
  • Minimal and snappy
  • Easy drag and drop
  • Uses little storage space (about 390 kb)
  • Supports commonly used phone platforms

Cons

  • You can only make a ringtone of 30 seconds (maximum)
