iPhone Ringtone Maker Apps now available on App Store
Apple now allows iPhone ringtone creation apps to be sold on the App Store, in a somewhat strange turn around from their previous policy. The reason I say this is strange is because you can make ringtones with iTunes 10 for free without any additional software, and you can also buy ringtones on iTunes for $0.69, so allowing ringtone apps is sure to cut into their own business of selling them.
The ringtone maker app market has already proven to be popular, with several of the apps now climbing the ranks of the App Store top paid apps, as AppleInsider notes. I suppose the convenience of being able to create a ringtone directly on the iPhone is nice, but I think I’ll stick to making them free within iTunes (Garageband works too).
