1:46 /

You don't need to be an editing genius to create custom ringtones from your music library. Sharon Vaknin shows you how to personalize your incoming call alerts on your iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows phones.

Speaker 1: Hey, guys. I'm Sharon Bachman. If you are looking for a super easy way to make ringtones without a complicated (mess?), I've got you cover. Ringtone maker by Fried Cookie is a good looking windows app but it could make ringtone using songs you already own. It works with iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Windows phone. When (??) solve Ringtone maker from Download.com, launch the program. This little box is others to it. Drag and drop your music files of choice. I'm (stock?) on a Dell still so that's my pick today. Your ringtone can only be 30 seconds long so pick the 30 seconds part of the song you want to use. Usually that's a (core?) so drag around until you find it. When you think you've got it click the play button to preview your ringtone. Then you can adjust the selection if it's not quite right. Speaker 2: Rumour has it. Rumour. Rumour has it. Rumour. Speaker 1: Once you found just the right part click next, select your phone, then save your ringtone. To make it easy I'll save it to my desktop. Pick create and your new ringtone is ready to go. Now if you have an iPhone you can drag it into iTunes or put it in your Ringtone folder for your Android phone and if you're a Mac user stay tuned. Fried Cookie will release a version of ringtone maker for you very soon. If you have any questions or need help putting your new ringtone on your phone check out howto.cnet.com and feel free to (sweep?) me or subscribe to my Facebook page. For CNET, I'm Sharon Bachman.
