A while back we took a look at the Windows Phone app easyRing. easyRing is an app that allows you to download custom ringtones to your Windows Phone. It was a nice, simply app at the time but has since been updated and given a name change. easyRing is now easyRing&Music, adding the capability to play/download music, as well as creating custom ringtones, to the Windows Phone app.
The update not only changes the name but also gives the app an entirely new look and some rather nice features. You now have pages for Hot Music picks and Active Music Groups to help you build/listen to playlists.
Where the old version of easyRing allowed you to search for ringtones on Amazon.com and Mobiles24.com, the new easyRing&Music opens up your ringtone options quite a bit.
You now have options to:
- Search and download ringtones from different sources such as Amazon.com, Zedge.net and Myxer.com
- Search and download music from websites like: mp3.com, beemp3.com, and mp3raid.com
- Search and download music from SoundCloud.com
- Search and download music from Youtube.com
- Stream and download music from Skydrive
easyRing&Music also has the ability to edit mp3 files so you can get just the right snippet of a tune for a ringtone; make playlists to manage the music links and downloaded songs and customize the background picture.
All in all, the update to easyRing&Music turns a simple ringtone app into a rather feature rich ringtone app. I really like the capability to download and create ringtones from your own music files that are stored on Skydrive. easyRing&Music is a nice tool to further customize your Windows Phone through ringtones.
