Getting custom ringtones isn’t as popular as it once was but that’s likely because it’s easier than ever to find them. Surprisingly, the market for Android apps to find ringtones, notification tones, and alarm tones isn’t as vibrant as one would believe. These days, there are only a few apps with the capabilities and Zedge pretty much owns the corner on this market. Still, you have a few options. In this short roundup, we’ll take a look at the best Android apps for ringtones.
MP3 Cutter and Ringtone Maker
Price: Free with ads
There are a lot of MP3 cutter apps and ringtone makers. However, we found this one to be rather competent. It works as the name suggests. You load in a music file from your device, cut it into your ringtone, and then save. You can set the ringtone after that. It supports MP3, WAV, FLAC, and AAC. In addition, the controls are manageable and the app is fairly clean. The app also comes with a recorder in case you want to record a piece of audio and use it as a ringtone as well. It’s a neat little app. It’s also free with no in-app purchases, but there are ads.
Pi Music Player
Price: Free / Up to $3.99
Pi Music Player is a good one-two punch. It functions as a perfectly good, simple music player. However, it also has some ringtone capabilities. The music app portion includes a five band equalizer, metadata support, themes, backgrounds, and a gorgeous UI. You also get a ringtone cutter. Thus, you can take any track in your library and turn it into a notification tone or a ringtone. It’s not among the best music player apps. However, the ringtone cutter function is better than most, so it’s a decent app overall.
Ringtone Maker is another app for custom ringtones. It works about the same way as Ringdroid. You load a sound file, cut out what you want, and save it. It can also record audio for custom recordings. The app also supports most file types, including MP3, WAV, AAC, AMR, and several others. Overall, it works pretty well. The app is free with no in-app purchases. There are ads, though.
Price: Free with in-app purchases
Zedge is one of the most popular ringtone and notification tone apps. It features a huge number of ringtones from across a variety of genres and types. You can also search specifically for notification tones or ringtones and alarm tones. The notification tones tend to be shorter so they don’t get annoying if you get a lot of notifications at once. The app also includes wallpapers, although the quality can vary greatly. It’s a great app for ringtones or notification tones, though. The app is completely free with ads. The ads are pretty annoying, but they’re not a deal breaker. You can also fill out surveys or spend money on premium content. However, that is mostly for wallpapers only.
Z Ringtones 2019
Price: Free with ads
Z Ringtones 2019 is kind of an alternative to something like Zedge. It has a bunch of various types of ringtones for quick download. The app has a metric ton of ads as do most other ringtone downloaders. However, the selection is decent and you can find stuff for holidays quite easily. Most of the ringtones are hit-or-miss in terms of quality. The most irritating part of the app is, by far, its ad frequency. It’s quite a bit higher than we would like. The app also tries to farm five star reviews so its rating may be a bit inflated. There are many ringtone downloaders just like this one, but this one had some decent stuff in our testing.
