easyRing - App Spotlight (Updated)

We received several tips to take a look at the Windows Phone app easyRing. So we did.

easyRing is a ringtone app for Windows Phones running Mango (Windows Phone 7.5) that taps into millions of free and legally obtained mp3 tones that are on Amazon.com and Mobiles24.com.

easyRing lays everything out nicely with a page to search ringtones by keyword or browse by about a dozen categories. Once you find a ringtone you are interested in, there are two button controls at the bottom of the page. One to preview the tone and one to download it to your phone.

Once you've downloaded a few tones, you can review what you've collected through easyRing from the Downloaded page and save them to your phone or delete them from your collection.  Once saved to the phone you can find them under settings>ringtones+sounds as a custom ringtone.

The ringtones range from Bollywood tunes to Funny tunes to Video Game Music tunes. It's a decent collection of ringtones and you only download the tones you want. There is a free trial version available for easyRing that will let you search and preview the tones but to download the tunes, you'll need the $.99 full version.

You can find easyRing over here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Update:  We recieved a little clarification on the trial version limitations.  Here's what easyRing's support had to offer,

The trial version allows you to search and download unlimited mp3 files. But to install those as your ringtones you need to copy them to the tone folder, and you are allowed 3 times with the trial. In another word, you can freely search, download and listen but can have only 3 ringtones installed.

So u have to pay for free ringtones? CoolThis should be one of those apps that has in app purchasing, if is a free tone then it's free and if u have to buy the ringtone pay in app. So the app should be free. Cuz it seems like the app devs are making money off other people's stuff. No?

You pay .99 for the app and then you can download 2 million ringtones, all free. What's wrong with that? The dev is making money for his effort which I appreciate. Great app btw.

I think this might make those who have trouble rolling their own ringtones. Thanks for the review George. You're the best.

The ring tones are free; you are paying less than a Dollar for the development of this great app. you can't expect people to work for nothing! try the free version, see how well it works All the thousands of tones are in one place, so saves time creating your own,the search box works a treat too. It works with the phone perfectly.This has to be the best app so far, well done for all the hard work in getting this up and running!

Uh ... the trial version is allowing me to download and use tones. Can you contact the dev somehow, George?

I have been using this for a week now. I appreciate the collection of material available, but there are some issues. In the Funny section, for example, some of the selections are of poor quality. Some of the tones actually sound about as bad as when I used to hold the microphone from my cassette recorder to the speaker of my parents TV to record TV themes. I have also noticed on some of the other tones that the trimming is a bit off, with the tone starting two or three words into a lyric or a second or two later than it should in an instrumental riff. Easyring is OK, but I am still looking for a good editor to do my own.
