Just like the computer has become a personal space, so did your smartphone, and you want it to reflect a bit of yourself in different ways. One of them is the ringtone, which is best set to something that’s easy to identify in a crowded space. You can easily create your own with the help of specialized applications like WinX iPhone Ringtone Maker.

On the visual side of things, the application comes with a custom-made interface that poses no accommodation problems whatsoever. A center area is used to show the wave form of audio files you insert, with the possibility to edit areas of interest on the spot.

The ringtone is created by simply cutting parts of a song, since it never gets to reach the end before you answer. You can either use the mouse on the preview area to set start and end points, or manually write down corresponding values, or length in combination with one, to automatically have the other value determined.

File support is decent, and you can load formats like MP3, WAV, WMA, OGG, AAC, MP4, M4A, FLAC, FLA, MPC, MPP, AIFF, AC3, and APE either by dragging them over the main window or using the built-in browse dialog. Sadly, output format is only M4R, which means the output ringtone is strictly limited to Apple smartphones.

You can spend a bit more time to tweak the ringtone before it’s created. Several playback options let you keep the song playing, even in loop on a selected part, so you can extract just that section you want. Fade in and out can be applied, with custom duration in seconds. Moreover, a few sliders let you apply effects like gain, high pass, and low pass.

Bottom line is that you can effortlessly create all kinds of ringtones with WinX iPhone Ringtone Maker, from a large variety of audio formats. Although limited to Apple smartphones, ease of use, as well as built-in editing and enhancement options make it worth a try, especially if you own a compatible device.
