Audiko 1

I’ve been using the same ringtone for about two years now. It’s not so much because I love the sound, although I do (it’s the “Enchanted Tiki Room” song). It’s that I’m too lazy to create new sounds to use.

Audiko is a ringtone creator that lets you make your own tracks right on your iPhone so you don’t have to download music off of the web. You can use your favorite songs, quotes from movies, or even the sound of your buddy snoring.

The app is incredibly easy to use and allows you to edit clips from your iTunes music library to create ringtones that are 30 seconds or less. All you have to do is select a song from your library, move the editing highlighter to the portion of the song you wish to use, and select “Done.” The clip will be stored online so you can then download it onto your computer to turn it into a ringtone.

In addition to having the ability to create your own sound, you can also browse through 10 million preexisting ringtones to find just the right audio for every single person you communicate with.

All you have to do is select a ringtone you wish to use and tap the “download” button. The file will be stored online so you can download it from your computer and use it as a ringtone.

The app was recently updated to include a search bar, which is vital to finding the tones you want. I searched for “Star Wars” and found hundred of clips from the movies that can be used as both ringtones and text message alerts.

I should point out that this app only lets you create 30-second clips on your iPhone. You’ll still have to convert the file to a ringtone manually. After grabbing it online, the file is downloaded into your iTunes library as an mp3 file. You must convert it to an m4r file in order to save it as a ringtone. If you don’t know how, follow our tutorial here (skip steps 1 through 3).

To me, what makes this app stand out is not that you can create ringtones on your iPhone. There are dozens of apps that can do that. It is the huge selection of completely free ringtones that are available for users to add to their collection.

The only thing wrong with this app is that it does not include clear instructions for how to get the new ringtone into your iPhone. Users must go online from a computer, download the new clip into iTunes, convert the file to a ringtone, connect their iPhone, and sync the new sound to their device.

If you want access to 10 million ringtones, you really should check this app out. You may have to follow a few extra steps to get the tone on your iPhone, but the incredible amount of content makes it worth a buck.

Audiko Ringtones for iPhone PRO is available for $0.99. Download it in the App Store today.

    I thought this app did something unique…. You still have to plug in your iPhone to the computer to install the ringtone on your phone. There are multiple apps that have this same function AND are free. Nice advertisement……..

    • Yep and the promo codes aren’t working.. Got the “Error: This code is for a version that is not available for download.”

      • Héctor Viveros

        Same here

      • We’re not sure why the codes aren’t working, especially since Lory was able to use one of the codes herself before. We removed the codes until we can figure it out.

    • Please do not accuse us of taking money in exchange of coverage. It is very insulting.

    • NP92

      Yea ur Right, why is this something new or difference:)

    • Matt Taylor

      Was thinking the same thing… Glad it wasn’t me that said it though lol

      With ToneConvert you can download and install ringtones WITHOUT iTunes, jailbreak, converting files, etc.

    iRinger is the best one


    Zedge is the best! Been using zedge since my first phone (nokia 3210)

  • Am I the only one that feels the process of getting ringtones onto an iPhone (or indeed any iOS device) is too convoluted? Apps like this are great but they aren’t worth it due to the stupidly long procedure required to get a ringtone onto your device. No operating system should require the device running the OS to be plugged in to another device running another operating system just to install something as trivial as a ringtone…


    • Completely agree. You should be able to download the ringtone to your iPhone and be able to use it right away. But that’s not how Apple likes to work.

      • Matt Taylor

        Because Apple charge for ringtones in the store and people are much more likely to spend money on convenience that waste time with complex and tedious procedures!

      • Chris Weaver

        I learned at Apple that downloading ringtones straight to the device has a high high chance of carrying a virus or negative things of that sort. It’s the same reason why you don’t have the same downloading capabilities similar to Android devices. It’s a pain for sure, but it’s for a good reason.

      • GoMAD4

        What about a solution from Apple? I find it irritating I can’t use a song from song as a ringtone without a computer. Even when purchased from Apple themselves. At least them don’t allow voice recordings as ringtones tho. So many painful moments of members of the public with friends/family’s cringeworthy homemade tones!

      • Chris Weaver

        Lol cmon those were the good ol days. hearing a song on the radio, pausing your life, recording your favourite part haha. But I agree, we need a more elegant solution. I find it tedious to open GarageBand, get the song, select the portion I want, and then import to iTunes THEN sync to iOS devices.
        My dream solution— Spotify offering a ringtone import on the device of music you have saved from your library. That’ll never happen… 🙁

      • Wamid

        Did you know you can use GaragBand to make ringtone and use them directly on your phone!?

        Only problem is that if you use a song with copyrights as a ringtone.. It won’t work and you want me able to use any other ringtone besides the default

        Is iDB going to cover the recent AppStore issue of apps not updating/the Update all button being greyed out?

        In most cases, it seems the problem is isolated to ios 7.x but some say it’s also happening on 7.1.x and it’s not jailbreak related.

        I’ve read all kinds of “temporary” fixes such as manually searching for the apps and updating from there, to plugging into your PC to update but after doing it these ways the app still shows it as needing a pending update even though the app is the most current version.

        Then to fix this pending update problem… you manually set your date/time ahead a few weeks & finally the AppStore update disappears.

        It seems this issue is due to something Apple did on their end. Please disregard my comment if you have already covered this issue. Thanks.

    • I agree. I wish you could actually download a ringtone from an app directly into your iOS device. Maybe Apple will fix that in iOS 100.

      • Matt Taylor

        It’s not something that’s broken, it’s business!

    • Xee

      Feel same. Should be able to add and remove ringtones using just iPhone alone.

    • GadgetQueenn

      To my knowledge, the only way to use ringtones right away from an iiDevice is install a ringtone app from Cydia, like UnlimTones. Apple has us tethered to iTunes for life and I hate it.

  • HooDatty

    Why pay for this app when unlimtones lets you grab anything from the same source for free (both app and ringers)?

    • Zachary Sloane

      UnlimTones uses the same Audiko service, but it does let you download directly to your device. But you need a jailbreak for it to work….

  • dothack

    zedge works the same way which is free. I want a non jailbreak solution to create and set ringtones on the phone.

  • Chris Weaver

    This must be an ad or a shout out for a friend… lots of better apps, I will praise the UI though! Looks clean! I recommend Zedge or iRinger if you can get it ;P

  • Tikimaker

    I don’t see the point to buy an app to create a 30 sec MP3 clip that isn’t even an M4r file. The linked tutorial in the post is the way I have always made my ringtones.

  • Sandeep Roy

    I use iRinger since ages and its far simpler. Converts directly to ringtone format M4R OR CAF on you’re desktop. Just add to Tones in iTunes & you’re good to go.

  • solidsephiroth

    Is there any good place to get short text tones?
