Customize your Windows Phone devices with the official Zedge app

Zedge (www.zedge.net) is one of the most popular source of free ringtones and wallpapers in the world for over a decade now. Over 80 million people get more than 300 million free ringtones and wallpapers from Zedge every month.

After a long wait, few days back, the official app - ZEDGE Ringtones & Wallpapers – landed on the Windows Phone Store. The app allows you to seamlessly download free, high quality ringtones and HD wallpapers optimized for your device.

The app is very basic in design, almost unattractive, but the user experience is seamless and very functional. Initially there were issues with server connectivity, and I found a lot of negative comments on the Windows Phone Store listing, but the app’s working fine for me each time now.

You can browse the content via the Featured, Popular, and Recent sections with more to come. After you’ve found what you’ve been looking for or discovered something interesting, the app allows you to set ringtones and wallpapers directly from the app.

Download the ZEDGE Ringtones & Wallpapers for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. It’s unlikely that you haven’t heard of this community platform, and it’s a useful app if you prefer to go beyond the default ringtones and wallpapers for your phone. Give it a whirl, and let us know how you like it.

  • I've never heard of it, but I'll give it a whirl.
  • Same.
  • Never heard of zedge? Its like the top search result when you type mobile wallpapers and stuff
  • Nope, never heard of it. Though, I've never search mobile wallpapers either. :)
  • Oh yeah ? Then why is it banned in India ? I hadn't heard of it, and when i did open it a few months ago, it said "banned by supreme court orders" and the app didn't work either.
  • Try changing your region in Settings to USA and give it another go.
  • then you must lived under a rock or at least its very populare here
  • Its a big rock, they sell WP8s down here. Pretty good living if you ask me :)
  • I'm under a similar rock.
  • That's means you never owned a nokia s40/60 device
  • Agree. I have s60 device before. Using Zedge as the main source for customizing my phone. Such a good site.
  • never heard zedge ? you must at least 15 years old or younger if u never heard of this .
  • Used this app alot back in the old fashioned Android days ;)
  • +1
  • This. Best source for wallpapers and ringtones back in the day for Android. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Me too. Then i've grown wiser and dumped that crap and bought a real smartphone :)
    I'm glad we're getting more and more big hit apps.
  • Been waiting on this for a while now. Good things come to those who wait! ;)
  • Does it allow for cycling of wallpapers on lock screen?
  • Wow! Finally its here
  • ^ + 925. Who are these people that have never heard of Zedge! Mind you i haven't been on the Zedge site since i have had WP as you couldn't do a lot to customize your WP, probably the reason why the Zedge didn't have Ann app until now. Thankfully that is changing so this app is a welcome addition.
  • I've never heard of it either. But will try it out
  • Omg zedge app here! Unexpected but awesome! I downloaded the lol sounds from here for my phone xD
  • Lol as in...?
  • As in League of Legends.
  • I welcome this addition very much. I had it on iPhone, and my android phones. These apps are the type of apps we need. Random useful ones that most people don't think of but they are useful. That and more banking apps.
  • Finally !
  • Never heard of this.
  • Ringtones are saved only to ringtones+sounds in settings and not to music+video, so I just use it to download wallpapers (some are really gorgeous)
  • I used it on my pc to download wallpapers.Back then i was using a 6681.
  • I Will use It for WP8.1...
  • That app comes in handy to customize our phones now that WP 8.1. is coming :3
  • I cannot connect to server how about you guys?
  • is there an app that would auto-update my lock screen pic?   Regards, -new WP user
  • Bing, 500pix for example.
  • Locksider or Locksider+ by liquid daffodil. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Lockmix
  • Will try this. Myxer often doesn't have what I'm looking for and the design is terrible versus the android app.
  • Oh my God! It's my old app when i still use symbian phone
  • Long wait is over.
  • Been using it for the last week, got some cool ringtones and lock screens
  • sweet app is it not. i agee some of the ringers are pretty good. and the app is nice as well.
  • It is good to see the official app but I hate this community so much. I used to upload wallpapers on this website but most of them were being reported. They remove those and later on some moderator uploaded same wallpapers. After that I just stopped it.
  • Alright! I didn't have an app I wanted that started with Z. Now just K L Q X and Y to go.
  • Lockmix, linkedin, quiz8
  • Same here, now all I need is an app that starts with a K and my app list letter box will be complete, and if you want an X down load the Xbox video app or Xbox smart glass app
  • Going to say the same thing. J, K and Q left to go.
  • Can you get HD wallpaper in Zedge? 1 mb size???
  • Got my ringtone from there)
  • Did anybody notice? On the first page (in app) we got FOUR official...apps. Finally WP is getting more apps. I'm not missing one single app (except Opera) but I know many of you miss some
  • My favorite app to download wallpapers and ringtones when I was rocking Android. Great app so far and looking forward to using the wallpapers in Zedge when Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers comes out.
  • Nice. When I get through the massive Nokia ringtone bundle, I'll check this out.
  • Does anyone else remember this app ACTUALLY being available on windows phone earlier in the year? I'm super happy its back but when I had the app earlier it worked great then an update rolled through and changed the app from Zedge to Ringtones and Wallpapers. All of a sudden that app wasn't available for my device anymore (Lumia 925 - ATT-US). Very curious about this one.
  • Yes, i do. I had it, it was simply a web wrapper but it was defo zedge. I used it to grab the worms "incoming" sound clip for messages. After the app received an update it changed just as you mentioned above.
  • This will be great for 8.1 Lockscreen wallpaper.
  • It can't get hold on the servers and also crashing :(
  • It was my best app on my N73 and N81...
  • Stupid app.. Its not even connecting to Internet!
  • Been visiting Zedge since the golden days of Symbian lol
  • Able to change ringtone with this
  • Of coarse its very basic but im glad to have it! now i can find those ringtones i had on my android. 
  • Finally! An app for My 'Z' tile ;)
  • Not working, showing failure message "can't connect to the server"
  • Same for me. 
  • Cannot connect to server!!
  • Zedge is very much available in India. I have been an avid follower of the site from my E-71 days way back in 2008. They also have themes and games for lower end Symbian phones, but for Lumia devices they only have ringtones and wallpapers. It is like the website mobile9 I have liked the site and now their WP app is cool. Though the UI needs a bit more improvement, but when you have only a couple of things to offer for Windows phone, I think the current UI is pretty nice.
  • Made me remember those Symbian days when I had a nokia 6303 and accessed this site for wallpapers and themes. With wp themes have gone into a cold storage.
