New universal Windows 10 ringtone app previewed ahead of release

A new universal app has been previewed by Windows Blog Italia. The app is a ringtone maker called Creating Ringtones, which enables you to surprisingly create custom tunes for your Windows 10 Mobile device to sound when someone is attempting to contact you. Interestingly, since this app would also be installed on a PC or tablet running Windows 10, you'd be able to get creative on the large screen and then enjoy your own work on the phone.

It's essentially the old ringtone creation tool by Nokia we all grew to know and love, but with a Microsoft Windows makeover and implemented support for the desktop OS. Creating Ringtones is not yet available for download on either platform, though we can't imagine it being long if a preview is already accessible. We'll keep our eyes peeled for more details or a launch.

Here's the video walkthrough – it's in Italian but at least you get an idea as to how the app looks:

  • It's raining apps!!!
  • We need Tsunami of apps right now to be on par of Android & iOS. Don't get happy with Rain
  • Agreed
  • Quality apps. Not an obselete one
  • Well - we are still waiting for new quality apps to dripple down on us to be honest.. as for now there have only been "remakes" of WP apps .. nothing special to be honest 
  • Hey abhishek a flood would be better than a tsunami....quality matters more than store is all clogged up with junk apps but bot the Windows store LOL!!!!!
  • I have seen same comment already in some other old article.
  • Hey, Akira, are you trying to start your own meme?
  • I'm gonna port my WPF program MP3 Tag Editor ( to be a Windows Universal app for editing mp3 tags. I made this decision, because all mp3 editors in the store look so ugly and boring with no customization.
  • Waiting....
  • Thanks!
  • Is it possible to add artist background image feature in tag editor?
  • Yes.
  • Except is it still gimped
  • Why? If you have any suggestions to improve the program, please tell me here:
  • I was just looking for something like this. I'll be sure to download it when it's released.
  • Unfortunately delay for windows mobile..coming first in android and IOS
  • Shut the f*ck up and stop trolling on every article
  • But he's not wrong
  • I didn't say he was wrong
  • Cant they integrate it with sounds under settings? That would be great
  • Video not available
  • What's the bloody point when w10m is officially on so few devices? :/
  • There are hundreds of millions W10 PCs though
  • When are we previewing windows central universal app?
  • Soon™
  • 2020
  • It's been delayed
  • Video not found
  • It seems they deleted it
  • Simply said video not found
  • No apk android but microsoft want to make eco system on window mobile-no crash app between window mobile app and android app.. But i think with universal app between window app and window mobile app is best solution to minimize the maintance of application.
  • For any Microsoft employees scrubbing through these comments the name is pretty terrible (not uncommon). Here's a freebie, Note-ification
  • NoizceMachinzce
  • muchas gracias MS!
  • I'd it available yet?. I wish people would stop knocking windows, it's getting tiresomely dull
  • This app will be delayed :'D
  • Ms should add make a ringtone option in music and mp3 in file manager..must needed
  • "The app is a ringtone maker called Creating Ringtones, which enables you to surprisingly create custom tunes for your Windows 10 Mobile device to sound when someone is attempting to contact you. " Having fun much?? XD
  • Hey, this site wants to be open for all people and not only...the absolute pros who already know that a ringtone is xD
  • Change 'through' for 'though'
  • When you are ready to launch that Windowscentral Universal Windows app? :P can't wait for it! ^^
  • Can't wait
  • This is great.....but as of now, I can't seem to get any of the custom ringtones I already have to work with different people. I have a custom ringtone as a general everyday tone.....but I can't seem to set any (and have them actually work) for "x" person or "y" company. I miss having the "Imperial March" as my work call. :-/ Unlocked 950 BTW
  • Hope this app allows ringtones to be made with groove music downloads
  • WTH happoened to this app? Nowhere to be found.  Either that was a short beta, or they had some serious issues.
