main task of this application is changing the ringtones
automatically. It is not secret that one ringtone not always can be
set for call, messages and alarm.
Often you want to set one long and loud ringtone for the call and
short and loud - for messages. For an alarm you want to set the long one
but with an increasing tempo.
The RndTones application
counts this and allows you to set different ringtones lists for the
calls, messages and alarms. After each of events (incoming call,
incoming message, and alarm action) the new ringtone will be selected
randomly from the appropriate list. The application settings are
quite compact. "Change ringtones” – switches the application work (including autostart). If "yes” – the ringtones will be changed (for the selected events) and the application starts will automatically when phone starts. If "no”
– the ringtones will be not changed and the application will not
start with the phone. Further you can switch on or off the ringtones
changing for the definite events. In the various alarm applications
the alarm ringtone changing is the second function by the popularity
after ability to configure the acting intervals, though not every
alarm application can do it. And in separation of alarm this function
is in general unique! It is small separate server application handles
the ringtones changing and it is not consume a lot of system
resources and do not reveal self-anyhow. The main application can
be closed or minimized directly after configuring the settings. This
will not affect further work anyhow. Then we have three
separate playlists. They are: Call ringtones, SMS ringtones, Alarm ringtones.
When you add the ringtones you can select built-in phone’s ringtones (from the Z drive) or search them in the phone’s memory.
Directly after selecting standard ringtones the list will be opened.
By default all the ringtones will be selected and added into the list
after you will press OK. When you navigate through the list the
preview will work (if this word can be used on the ringtone). E.g.
that application will start to play new selected ringtone so we can
understand what we are selecting.
Select desired ringtones and press OK.
The ringtones will be added into the list. There can’t be any
ringtones’ duplicates. E.g. only those new ringtones will be added
which weren’t in the list.
When you select the user ringtones at first the memory drive
selection dialogue will be shown. The owners of modern phones (with
three memory drives) would not be hurt. They will see all the
available drives (the C drive, built-in flash-drive and the flash
Then the directory selection dialogue will be shown. The feature is:
you can always select the root folder. The search of the ringtones
will be performed in all the nested directories at this. If you don’t
want to handle all the ringtones that you have, so you better should
select the concrete directory that contains the ringtones.
After that the all the found ringtones list will be opened and you
will be able to add them into the application’s list of the ringtones.
To the left of the ringtone’s name you can see the colored circle.
When you press the joystick center it will switch its color between
green and red. So you can include or remove this ringtone in the
rotation process. The ringtones that is highlighted with a green will
be used in the rotation process. The red ones would not.
After selecting the ringtones into the list, new options will be shown in the menu. I will describe some of them here.
"Activate” – the cascade menu. You can select "all” or "nothing”. Accordingly you can add all the ringtones into the rotation process or remove them. "Ringtone information”
– the dialogue will be shown that has full ringtone file path
(remember that in the list it is only the ringtone’s name). This
information is not needed too often and there is no sense to show it in
the main list view because it will only burden it. If someone needs
to see the file information – he can see it using this menu. "Sound on/Sound off”
– these are interchangeable options. They affect the selected
ringtone playing while you navigate through the list. This is so
called "preview”. The function can be useful but it can bother you and so you will want to switch it off.
