Ringtone Adder2.0.4

Add custom ringtones to OS X.

Overview

Ringtone Adder adds your ringtones to OS X's list of system ringtones.

OS X 10.10 Yosemite and later versions let you change the ringtones and text tones that play when your contacts call or message you, but you can only choose from the ringtones that come with OS X. This app lets you easily add your own to the list. All you need is a .m4r file. This way, when you receive an iMessage or SMS, or receive a FaceTime call or phone call, you can have your own ringtones play. After you run Ringtone Adder, you will be able to go into the Contacts app in OS X, edit a contact, and see your ringtones appear in the "ringtone" and "text tone" dropdown menus.

Have you ever purchased tones for your iPhone via iTunes on your Mac, and wish you could use them on your Mac, too? You can with Ringtone Adder. When the application opens and you choose "Add", just point it to this folder: ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Tones. The ~ symbol represents the path to your user folder.

Perhaps 'Mac5' is not very tech savvy. Shortly after purchasing, I received an email. Clicked on the link and boom, it downloaded to my downloads folder. Opened it, and it moved itself to the Applications folder and restarted. Then it asked my to select my ringtone and opened a Finder window. It did its thing, told me it was done, and that was that. If anything, it's too simple (it would be nice if it had a progress indicator, but as long as it does what it's supposed to, I'm happy).

This app is just what I was looking for, as I have ringtones which speak the name of the contact, and this app enables me to see those ringtones in the Contacts app so I could assign the various ringtones to their respective contacts.

I don't understand what it's useful for. The texttone settings in my contacts seem to have no effect on OS X. I always hear the sound that's selected in the preferences of Messages.app.

To those updating from Version 1.3.3: If you update to 1.3.4 from with the app, please make sure that Safari is running. This is a bug that has now been fixed, so that won't be required in future versions.

Just a heads-up to all, We've gotten multiple requests to allow users to add alert tones, too. However, OS X handles alert tones differently. We will still try to introduce such a feature, but no promises, as it is much more involved.

errrm.. just copy an .aif sound file to ~/Library/Sounds and relaunch the app to see the sound present in the list. I guess 99¢ to do that for you is, well, dunno... I wouldn' t pay for it.

A rather confusing type of download, with an even more confusing interface with no apparent assistance or help menu. I'm using Yosemite 10.10 on a new iMac and having some difficulty in understanding how to use this app even though its sitting in my application fold..
