Free Ringtone Maker
Free Ringtone Maker is a small-sized and user-friendly Windows tool designed to aid you in creating ringtones for mobile phones with the help of intuitive options. Actuall, it does not contain advanced settings at all, so it can be handled by inexperienced users as well as those looking for a straightforward app without complicated features or configuration parameters.
The whole installation procedure does not take a long time to finish. However, you should expect an offer to download and install third-party tools that that app does not actually need to work properly. They can be excluded from setup by simply declining the offer, though.
Wizard-like interface with three simple stages
The UI is particularly simple. It resembles a wizard and contains large buttons that clarify the course of action to take. So, you can get started by choosing an audio file from the computer to put together the ringtone, provided that it has the MP3 format.
Set the ringtone start and end time, apply fade effects
For the second step, Free Ringtone Maker provides a graphical representation of the audio file and lets you select the start and end point of the new ringtone while previewing the track in a built-in player. The ringtone is not restricted in size or time length. Plus, you can add a fade in and out effect for smooth playback. Once you're set on the ringtone, simply establish an output name and directory to save it (evidently, to MP3 format). There are no other notable options available here.
Evaluation and conclusion
There were no kind of issues throughout our evaluation, as Free Ringtone Maker did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It has a good response time and carries out tasks fast, without triggering the OS to hang, crash or pop up error messages. Although it does not include rich features, the tool serves its purpose and can be used by beginners.
