Randomize Ringtones on WP7

While Windows Phone 7 is still gaining somewhat of a name development traction despite questionable actions from Redmond, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for some fun. While most consider fun to be playing games, taking pictures with camera apps that make things look goofy, and even theming tiles, there are other ways to get creative with your Windows Phone 7 device. XDA Forum Member jbkkd has found one of those ways in the form of an application that will randomize your ringtones.

The app, known as RandomRingtone, will shuffle your custom ringtones, and will change them randomly every half hour so your calls always sound different. While a fun little app all it’s own, it’s the future releases that will eventually make the app even more fun. Such future plans include:

Optional Toast notification when ringtone is updated
Ability to randomize from built-in ringtones as well
Random SMS Tones
Release of source code(It currently looks like a mess, I’ll probably make it pretty and release it soon)
New Icon

So while shuffling custom ringtones for calls may not excite everyone, this app promises to eventually randomize every noise that comes out of your WP7 device. And with the release of the source code, it will allow other app developers to add this goofy app’s functions into their own, potentially goofier applications. The application has only been tested on a couple of phones, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t work on more. If you want to try it out and your phone isn’t on the list of the officially tested, give it a try anyway. Worst case, you’ll have to reset your ringtone.

For more information and the .XAP download, check out the application thread.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
