5 Best Ringtone App 2021

PI Music Player

Kicking things off and the first ringtone app is PI Music Player. Yes, it is a music player that not only helps you play all your offline songs but also lets you trim them and set them as your ringtone. To do that you just need to tap on the “Menu” button, select the “ringtone cutter,” choose any song from your library. Then you can easily crop the part you want as ringtone and finally select the “save” option.

Once you do that, the app will automatically show a prompt asking you if you want to “set it as your default ringtone?” It is simple. But that is not this app just do. It is a full-fledged music player. It comes with a built-in five-band equalizer and enhanced folder view and its sharing feature share your sings with your friends along with audiobook and podcast player. Top of all that, it even lets you play music directly from YouTube. We quite like the app’s minimal UI and smooth transitions as well. Unlike, many other free ringtone apps, it’s not played with full-screen ads.

Zedge Ringtone

If you don’t like cropping and setting your own ringtone and you want an app that will allow you to download some cool and the latest ringtone then you should Zedge. This app has an amazing collection of popular ringtones that you can download and use without worrying about cropping them first. Just open the app’s menu icon and select “ringtones” and check out the ones that the app has on offer. The ringtone section is divided into three tabs with the first one showcase “Popular Ringtones.” The second tab lists down all the “Categories” so you can easily find the ringtone you are looking for. And the third tab features “Premium Ringtones.”

If you find something interesting you can tap on the ‘play’ button to listen to the tone instantly. If you like what you hear, tap on the listing and on the following window tap on the ‘set’ button to use the file as your ringtone or alarm tone or notification alert or custom ringtone for a specific contact. What’s really great about using Zedge though is, that it also features a great collection of wallpaper as well. So you can use them to customize your phone display to your liking. The only downside of the app is that you have to bear with a full screen or two while using the app. If we want something for free then we have to deal with ads.

RSFX Slicer

This is another one of the best ringtone apps that you can use to crop any song on your phone and make it your ringtone. So, the app has a dated-looking interface that doesn’t look all that appealing but it gets the job done without showing so many ads.

To make a ringtone, just pick an audio file from your phone storage and open it in the editor. Then, drag inwards from the top-left edge to set a starting point and do the same from the bottom right edge to set the ending point. Simply, tap at the floppy icon at the top to save your trimmed ringtone. Well, that’s not all. Tap on the FX button to open up a pop-up window that will allow you to add effects to your ringtone. Here, you can add “fade in and out,” “equalizer,” or give your ringtone a volume boost but just make sure that you don’t overdo it because that might cause distortion. Once you are satisfied with the results and done then save your ringtone. It is saved in the “Ringtones” folder on your phone storage by default and you can use it by simply heading to the sound settings on your phone then, selecting it within the folder.

AudioMP3 Editor

The next one is also a similar app called AudioMp3 Editor which includes all of the features provide by RSFX but with a couple of useful editions. The app not only lets you trim your audio clips but also allows you to merge two clips together so you can create your own unique remix, record a new clip, and convert the format of the audio file. On top of that, you can use the app to convert video to an audio file as well. But, there is one major shortcoming. Since the app is free to use so you have to deal with the ads and they are really annoying. Full-screen video and banner ads really bother you then steer clear of this one or pay the premium to remove the ads altogether.


Rounding things off as Ringpod, another fairly simple MP3 editor that you can use to easily crop audio file and make ringtones. It is simply quite easy to use and just requires you to select the file, starting and ending points of the file, and trim to your desired length. You can also copy and paste sections of the audio if you want to make a longer ringtone with repetitive sections which is a great addition. The app also lets you record and trims your own audio clips to make unique ringtones. And, once you are done, you can save your project by tapping on the floppy icon at the top.

The ringtones are saved in the default “ringtone” folder on your phone making it really easy to select them from within the sound settings.

Final Words:

Well, that sums it all. You can try any of these apps to create your favorite song portion into a ringtone. You can easily find these apps on the Google Play Store. If you know any other ringtone app then you can tell us or leave the Google Play Store link of it in the comment box.
