Strong opinions, weakly held

Apple killed iToner

Last week I spent $15 on iToner, which allows you to turn MP3 files into custom ring tones for your iPhone. I’m not a fan of ring tones, but I thought that iToner was a cool hack, so I went ahead and bought it. Unfortunately, Apple killed it with this week’s iTunes 7.4. Ambrosia is promising a fix, so we’ll see what happens. I hope Apple didn’t kill it deliberately, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they did.

  1. I have been told that if you tell iTunes to not sync ringtones then it won’t erase your iToner ringtones. That sounds like I would expect syncing to work.

    You can also load your own custom ringtones with iTunes by renaming the file and loading it into iTunes. http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/2007/09/07/free-custom-ringtones-in-itunes-7-4/ I don’t know how long that will last. If I were a record label and demanded Apple only allow licensed ring tones I’d want to see the loading of arbitrary files stopped.
