Ringtone Maker Comes to iPhone as Apps, But Still Requires a Computer

With the introduction of iTunes 10, Apple had taken away the ability for users to purchase and create ringtones from the desktop media manager and synchronization software, but the company has now approved apps available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad that will allow users to create ringtones on their iOS-enabled devices. Five ringtone apps are currently available–Best Ringtone Maker, Ringtone Designer Pro, Music Ringtone Maker, Ringtone Maker Pro, and Custom Ringtone Maker–each costing $0.99 on the App Store. The catch is that since third-party apps are sandboxed from the rest of the OS and phone, which means that although you can create your own ringtone on the device, you still can’t use those ringtones right away until you transfer the tones over to your PC or Mac and synchronize them over to your phone via iTunes.
