Make your own ringtones on Android, iPhone (video)

In this episode of Tap That App, CNET's Jessica Dolcourt shows you seven mobile apps for slicing ringtones out of songs you already own.

Now playing: Watch this: Make iPhone and Android ringtones

Cutting your own ringtones from songs in your mobile library isn't hard at all, and there's even one ingenious Android app that takes a much more creative approach than the usual slice-and-serve.

iPhone apps also handily make ringtones. Apart from choosing the start and stop times--which can be frustrating and time-consuming depending on your level of meticulousness--the most trying portion of the creation process is transferring your newly created selection to iTunes and then back to your computer as a ringtone.

No, it doesn't make sense, but the apps show you how to do it and ultimately offer an easy enough way to ready 'tones for your phone while you're away from your computer.
