This post demonstrates how to make ringtones for iPhone without iTunes. Follow the quick instructions below.
A year ago, here at the lab of Softorino we released our little application – Softorino YouTube Converter. The app was an instant hit. It was the first world’s solution to download YouTube videos to iPhone.
While crafting version # 2 we thought: what if we add the feature to make ringtones for iPhone from YouTube tracks?
It was the ‘Eureka’ moment. 💡
Of course, you can create ringtones with iTunes. But. You probably know that this is a long long battle, that you might not win in the end.
And what we did is absolutely a different story. Copy the link. Click ‘Download’. The ringtone will be transferred straight to your iPhone.
This is probably the fastest way to make unique, trimless ringtones for your iPhone. It finally sets users free from using iTunes for ringtones. And you don’t have to trim it too.

same old ringtone, maybe?
Marimba, iPhone’s default ringtone, is, perhaps, the most famous tune in the world.
Anybody can easily tell if it’s iPhone ringing. In a crowded room how can you even know if it yours phone ringing?:)
It’s very spread. Partially because it’s so difficult to change. Apple made the whole procedure way too h.a.r.d.
You can easily purchase ringtone it in iTunes Store – but dare to make one yourself.
The first thing we’ll need to do is choose a song in iTunes to use as a ringtone.
Open up iTunes on your Mac or PC and click on the My Music tab, or choose Music from the dropdown menu at the top left then select Library from the options underneath the main display window (this depends on the version of iTunes you’re using).
Choose a song that’s on your hard drive then right click on it, choose Get Info, then click the Options tab.
Here at Softorino’s lab we created the workflow to help you turn any song into ringtone. No joke. You are not required to get your hands dirty with iTunes.
Softorino YouTube Converter is something new. It’s a Mac & Windows app that converts just any YouTube video into iPhone ringtone. It transfers ringtone to your iPhone right on the spot. Wirelessly.
You also don’t have to trim them. The issue I personally hated about iTunes is that you have to, absolutely can’t avoid trimming your ringtone. Here it’s a different story. You may trim it or you may not.
