How to Get Custom Ringtones for Your iPhone

Are you looking for the custom ringtones for your iPhone? Do you want your iPhone sounds like other phones? Do you want to have custom ringtones like other phones, then checkout the way to have such ringtones.

Option 1: iTunes

You know you can buy apps, music and movies from the iTunes Store, but did you know it sells ringtones as well? It’s not immediately obvious if you don’t know where to look.

Open the iTunes app on your phone, tap More (bottom right corner) and then tap Tones. Voilà! A whole section devoted to ringtones.

Many of these are songs, but if you tap the Genres button and scroll down to the bottom of the list, you’ll see categories including Dialogue and Sound Effects. That’s where you can score ‘tones like R2-D2 beeping and booping, a T-Rex roar from “Jurassic Park,” and spoken-word clips from all manner of movies and TV shows. You can tap the thumbnail for any ringtone to hear a sample.

iTunes’ ringtones sell for 99 cents or $1.29. When you tap to buy one, you’ll see options including Set as Default Ringtone, Set as Default Text Tone (for text messages, naturally) and Assign to a Contact. You can, of course, modify any of these options later on, as well as tap Done to complete the setup later.

This is the major advantage to spending money on ringtones: They’re automatically added to your phone, right on your phone, no conversion or hoop-jumping required.

Option 2: DIY ringtones

If you’d rather not spend any cash, however, or you want music or sounds not available through iTunes, consider the DIY approach.

Here’s a great example. For my money, there is no better ringtone you can have for your phone than this. YouTube is really the only place to find it (and any number of other clips, sound effects, etc.). Thankfully, it’s fairly easy to convert any YouTube video to a ringtone: Continue reading “How to Get Custom Ringtones for Your iPhone”

October 28 – 1965 Gateway Arch completed

On this day in 1965, construction is completed on the Gateway Arch, a spectacular 630-foot-high parabola of stainless steel marking the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial on the waterfront of St. Louis, Missouri.

The Gateway Arch, designed by Finnish-born, American-educated architect Eero Saarinen, was erected to commemorate President Thomas Jefferson’s Louisiana Purchase of 1803 and to celebrate St. Louis’ central role in the rapid westward expansion that followed. As the market and supply point for fur traders and explorers—including the famous Meriwether Lewis and William Clark—the town of St. Louis grew exponentially after the War of 1812, when great numbers of people began to travel by wagon train to seek their fortunes west of the Mississippi River.

Facebook’s New Message Request Feature

Facebook bringing a new feature “Facebook Message Request” allows you perform some interesting things. Have a Look!

Phone numbers are dumb. Once someone has yours, you can’t stop them from contacting you.Someone might want you to call them, but if you don’t have their random string of digits, you can’t. And you could miss something extremely important if a person you’ve never met really needs to reach you.

Facebook Messenger has a plan to fix all that. And it’s born from the ashes of one of the social network’s worst products ever.

No More Missed Connections

Today, Messenger is killing off the dysfunctional “Other Inbox”. It was where Facebook messageswent to die if they were sent by someone who wasn’t your friend or friend-of-a-friend. Few people knew it existed. Fewer ever checked it. And it wasn’t even accessible from Messenger’s iOS or Android apps.

A friend of mine once received a Facebook message from his long-lost brother he was separated from at birth 30 years ago in Vietnam. But he didn’t see the message for six months because it went to his Other Inbox. It took a LinkedIn request before he realized what he was missing.

Facebook Other Inbox

Thankfully, that shouldn’t happen anymore. Rolling out globally starting today is Facebook’s replacement for the Other Inbox which it calls “Message Requests”. It means all someone needs in order to contact you is your name, but you have control over whether they can contact you again.

Friend Requests For Chat

Now, any message from a non-friend who doesn’t have your phone number will go into your Message Requests at the top of Messenger on mobile or in the Messages tab on web.

HTC Re Camera Price Drops To $50 – Deal of The Day

When HTC announced its stand-alone Re sports camera, more than one commenter wondered what the company was doing leaving its smartphone comfort zone for an industry that’s already dominated by a single player. Though the Re camera is decent enough on its own and the design is completely unique, it’s not enough to sway potential buyers away from GoPro and Sony cameras, which have more features and an established reputation. Apparently someone at HTC agrees, because the camera is being discounted by a whopping 75%.

That brings the price down to just $50, well into impulse buy territory and much more palatable than the original $200 retail price. HTC’s US online store is selling them in white, orange, blue, and teal color options. Standard shipping is free. We don ‘t know if HTC is selling the Re at the discounted price in other countries, or whether it will be available at the cheaper price at those few retailers that actually carry the camera – Amazon currently has it for around $100, and Best Buy will send you one for $150.

The water-resistant Re uses a 16MP sensor with a wide-angle lens, a unique periscope shape for fitting into special accessories, and a MicroSD card slot for recording photos and videos. It connects to iOS or Android apps (including non-HTC devices) for transfers and viewfinder functionality. The low price might make you nervous about a new model… but since we haven’t heard anything about an update, it seems like the line will probably end right here.
