Randomize Ringtones on WP7
Posted April 18, 2012 at 09:00 pm by Former Writer
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)
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.
