Ringtone Designer is an app that allows users to create ringtones and other notification sounds by taking a clip from a song stored on their mobile device. The app is very easy to use, and offers a simple, low-cost way to update a device with newer, custom-made ringtones. Ringtone Designer first asks users to select a song from their music library, and then presents sound file of the song vertically. Users then pick a portion of the song by sliding a selection tool to adjust the start and end point of the clip. The selected clip will then be rendered into a ringtone. Users can preview their clip as many times as they want until they’ve captured the best selection. While creating ringtone clips is rather simple, setting them as ringtone is a bit harder, and may require the help of a parent or guardian. Still, the more basic operations of the app make it suitable for use by ages 6 and up.

This app helps kids who need help with:


Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Using Ringtone Designer requires flexible thinking, as users must take their favorite songs and manipulate them, playing around with the available tools isolate segments that work best as a ringtone. The app requires a small amount of trial and error in order for these musical selections to be refined into bite-sized clips, and users will have to try editing out multiple parts before finding the right fit. The preview option encourages users to rework the final result, listening to the section and adjusting the clip as needed until the desired ringtone is achieved.


Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

Since the app allows users to create an endless amount of ringtones, it is a good idea for them to be properly named and organized, as each sound will eventually be transferred into iTunes and ultimately reside within the "Sounds" section of the phone's "Settings" area.

More so, creating unique ringtone can serve as an excellent way to organized contacts, as a distinct sound can be created and tied to individuals  making it easy to know who is calling before users even glance at their phone. Doings so will take some time, but the end result will be a customized contact list that makes it easy to instantly know who's calling.

Lastly, the process of actually creating, storing and adding ringtones created with the app takes some organizing in and of its self. Rather than detail the process here, the app's developers have a easy-to-follow tutorial on how to do so, which you can check out by clicking here.
