At the time of the first Nokia, when the mythical snake game was present in every corner, the famous polytones were all the rage. You could personalize the mobile ringtone with your favorite songs and soundtracks. Imagine how popular they were that they were even advertised on television!
From midi ringtones we go to “ringtones”, and although they don’t have as much pull as they used to, they are still a must for those who like to personalize their mobile or tablet. In today’s post we give a good review of the best apps to create, change and customize the tone of the calls we receive on our phone.
The 5 best apps to personalize ringtones and notifications on Android
Sounds for calls and notifications have naturally evolved, and we can now use real MP3 or WAV audio tracks and assign them to the ringtone of a specific contact. The same happens if we want to change the sound that our Android device emits when receiving a notification. These are the best apps we have found to carry out this task. Do not lose sight of them!
Note: If you want to know in detail how to change the ringtone of one or more contacts manually, don’t lose sight of this other POST.
We start with the king of ringtones and wallpapers for Android. An essential app where we will find thousands and thousands of melodies, sounds and funny phrases to personalize our terminal.
It has a lot of current songs, as well as a bunch of categories: Alternative, Animals, Blues, Bollywood, Classical, Comedy, Children, Dance, Electronic and a long etcetera. The best of its kind, by far.
Audiko Ringtones is another really popular app. In addition to having a wide selection of ringtones classified by categories, it has top national lists of the best tones and more than frequent updates.
Its great asset is that it has a tone editor . That is to say. that allows us to create our own personalized tones from songs and audio tracks that we have stored in the phone.
RSFX is a free Android application that allows you to edit audio tracks and create ringtones. Its great differentiating feature is its FX effects section with which we can modify any song or sound to make it unique.
So we can use effects like fade in – fade out to fade out the audio and gradually move the track in and out. It also has a gain compressor to increase the volume and make the ringtone sound really powerful, and an equalizer to reinforce the bass or treble. In short, a really versatile app. Supports MP3, WAV and AMR files.
4. MTP Melodies and wallpapers
Application very similar to ZEDGE, with ringtones for calls, notifications and wallpapers. However, although it has a good catalog, it does not reach the level of quality of ZEDGE. The interface hasn’t been updated in a few years, so that’s probably why it seems a bit outdated, at least visually.
In any case, it is an app that is well worth a look: it has a very good rating on Google Play, with 4.4 stars and more than 1 million downloads.
5. Pi Music Player
If we want to cut a song that we have on our mobile to put it as a ringtone, we can use the Pi music player. Although it is not the best player in the world, it does have an integrated tool (called ringtone cutter ) to cut and create ringtones and notifications that surpasses other similar applications thanks to its great ease of use.
6. Z Ringtones Premium 2020
Although its name seems to imply that it is a paid application, this is a free tool. Of course, full of ads, something quite common in this type of apps. Which does not mean that it has an excellent repository of audios that we can download to use as a ringtone.
At the quality level there is everything, some tracks are very good and others are quite unfortunate. However, the average level of its library is above many similar applications, so it is well worth taking a look if we are thinking of renewing the sound spectrum of our mobile.
The Google Play Store is littered with other similar customization apps, but I think these are the most notable and prominent. If you think that I left an important mention in the inkwell, do not hesitate to stop by the comments area.
