Ok button stopped working Great app found out great ways to use it... good shyt.... Now I've been using this app since '08 and I'm just now stayed dealing with this OK button that doesn't want to with yet the cancel button works fine ??

Great It is inconvenience that there is impossible to use external ringtone in original android 4.4 This app help me to solve the problem.

A Google User

Ok button? If you are using some sort of screen filter or brightness adjuster (such as Lux), you can not press the "ok" button when selecting a ringtone. Oddly enough, the "cancel" button works fine. This is apparently an issue across multiple roms and Android versions.

Chris Leeks

Stopped working after I upgraded to Android Lollipop The app still allows me to select a ringtone from my music, but the phone pays a standard Nexus 4 ringtone when I get a call

Naydee Polanco

Amazing This app did what I couldn't figure out how to do in 30 mins of looking around. All I wanted to do was a custom sms message alert specific to one contact. This app did it in seconds

Ragnarok Z

Simply amazing No permissions and works, I didn't think my 4.4 droid would let me set ring tones till i found this app

A Google User

Simple and elegant This was one of the first apps I downloaded on the G1. It hasn't lost its appeal since 2008. Thanks, Dianne!

A Google User

One of the greatest app Been using this app on every android phone I've had since the G1. Should come stock on androids by now. Thanks for such a simple yet very, very, very useful app. Easily one of the greatest apps ever created!!!!

Mr C

Works for me. (Nexus 5) Great little app, does the job very simplistic. just realised I uninstalled it, but I still have the ringtones I downloaded on my nexus 5. :)

Zhao Gu

I wanna give it 5 stars Selectively stopped working back when I had Android 4.4. After updating to 5.0, it straight up doesn't work anymore.

Jonathan Stoos

Absolute Must Have!! Have had this app on all 5 of my Android devices. Key to using your own tones. No stupid permissions, ads or BS. Just straight forward, and allows using your own music/ringtones. Love it, have recommended it to everyone. Would still give it 5 stars if it was paid

A Google User

Excellent I amaze my friends with my ringtones because it makes absolutely everything available. Thanks. Never had an issue with any android update. Thanks.

Hannah Kane

DO NOT APP GAME Because it shows that I don't have it on my home page any were but when I go on my app store it showed that I did have now its messing up my tablet and I only gave 1 star

Amanda Ortega

Awesome app get to set any ringtone i want change text message voicemail alarms notifications change volumes personal contacts ringtones it's just awesome every thing i was looking for without ads and glitches i love it would give more stars if i could!

Amber Flowers

Long time lover! This is the first app I download on my phone! I seriously cannot go without it! I tell everyone they skulls use this to customize their phones so the don't sound like robots (yuck)! Don't ever change, cuz it's perfect the way it is!

Laura Waldron

Used to love it..worked on Samsung S3 and S5 KitKat. My S5 upgraded to Lollipop and now the app no longer works. Will there be a fix...or at least some feedback about this?

Duraiya Ali

Plz help. I downloaded dis app n it really worked awesome but I dont knw y its not working now plz help me

Spencer Whatley

Oldie but goodie Immediate install on every new Android I get. This Dianne Hackborn lady really knows how to make a minimal and ultra useful app.

James Smapde

Changed alarm clock volume Nice app overall, especially being free with no permissions. But it made my alarm near silent and I slept through class. Nexus 4 w/ 4.4.2

Jennifer Eastland

OK button not working... AGAIN Love the app, but the OK button has a way of not working every now and then... Until they can fix this issue, I'm uninstalling. I can't change ringstone if I can't press okay to confirm the changes....

Mike Solomon

Stopped working on my Nexus 4 This used to be brilliant but it no longer works properly on my Nexus 4 When I select a file the OK buton does nothing Cancel button works tho :(

Travis Hoskins

Amazing! One of the best and most reliable apps I've installed! A must have for customizing notifications

Stuart Baker

Didnt work at first Does now, so great to be able to use songs in my native alarm app. Having problems getting it to work again though, unable to click OK once I've selected an audio file

Ward De Witt

Good Lets you use installed music as ringtones. Not sure if it's an android or an app issue, but my Droid 4 will sometimes"forget" assigned ringtones and they will need to be reassigned.

Claudia Yan

Perfect! Does exactly as desired, no fuss no mess. Just perfection, pure and simple.

Nicole Robinson

Best ringtone app Lets you select any music from your phone for a ringtone :) full songs and all ;)

Curtis Thompson

Easier Customization Makes it much easier to customize ringtones for different features on your Android device.

Daniel Vi

Nexus 5 unable to change alarm This helped me sooooo much. On the nexus 5 for some reason, you can't change your alarm tone to an external file... With this app you can :D

Radhika Nagpal

Looked good, but it doesn't work for Lollipop 5.0 . I hope that can be fixed soon.

vaidahi singhal

Doesn't work on N4 My ringtone chooser doesn't ask me to open via rings extended.. It is how it was before I installed it...

Kyle Drayton

Doesn't work; no response from developer Cannot select "OK" when selecting a track to play as your ringtone, and therefore is useless. E-Mailed the developer a month ago asking if it was a known bug and anything I could do to help figure out what it is, but no reponse. Looks like a good app; if I had any correspondance with the developer I would have given it more. Unfortunately since there was no response, it gets 1 *.

Elaine Fortier

I love this I have had to have this on every smart phone I have owned. So much easier than the standard that you are giving. Great job. Keep up the good work.

A Google User

Just what I've been looking for, Works great on Samsung captive.

Jacob Rose

Thank god I found this I tried downloading a ringtone and for some reason I could not use it. This app is a major help

Shannon Lee Finton

Perfect The first app I always download for every new phone!

Bill Weaver

Great! Only way to go if you wanna use external tones

Andrew Fielden

Allowed me to set a custom ring tone For some reason, Android 5 wouldn't recognise a custom ring tone, that I placed in the Ringtones folder. After a lot of frustration and searching, I installed this app, which let me set my required ring tone. I'm happy.

Tarick Arnold

Functional But the app is a bit ugly and as simple as the app is, it can be designed to look better.

A Google User

Thank you for updating! Works as it did before, so I am thrilled to use it. I now have my Game of Thrones theme music box as my ringtone and couldn't be more pleased!

RPM More

Stop working Says can't find SD card I don't have a SD only internal memory... It use to work would find files now just shows an empty area saying no sd card. I haven't done anything to my phone to change anything. But clean the cache

Abzal Ongarbayev

Not working Just not work

Needs update I used this on older phones. But my new phone is running android 5 and this app is now useless

Péter Gervai

Does exactly as advertised Only does what's needed to do its job, with a clean but still useful interface. No hidden crap.

A Google User

I've used this app since my G1 so many years sgo. New apps come along but this one is still the best. Thank you. I love it on my Note 5.

Rene Menjivar

Best Method to Use Custom Ring Tones And doesn't need any permissions!

A Google User

User since 2010 A must have. Should be part of default Android apps., this is a vast improvement over Android's default method. Galaxy S4 Android 5.0.1

Cherish Hellfire

Still useful, years later Love that this gives option to list sounds by duration.

Fooky Mama

LOVED IT. LIFE SAVER. Saved me trouble and space from downloading other apps to replace the ones that could not allow me to choose my own music! Phones like the Nexus or Samsung that would not let you custom choose your own mp3s for calls, notifications, alarms, etc should definitely get this app.

Sean Stone

Been using forever I've had this on every Android phone I've owned. Makes customizing alerts, alarms, and ringtones super easy.

A Google User

Use to work good I used to be able to use any ringtone notification that was saved on my phone or SD card for alarms ringtones and notifications and now only certain ones can be used on my new phone

John Z

Best I've found so far...almost Best control over choosing sound files and what events they're attached to. Only problem is on my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus/Android 4.0.4) it lists all my sound files twice. On my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4/Android 4.4.4) it lists them once.

Olaf Kievit

OK and Done buttons stopped working Loved this app on my S2, and on my S5 while running KitKat. Upgraded to Lollipop, and found, like others, that some buttons don't work anymore. Will try to reinstall, but I'm not sure that'll fix it. Edit - just tried, no dice.

Brenda F.

I really like this app! This is probably one of my favorite apps I have ever gotten. It works PERFECTLY. There's no bugs, no lagging. It does EXACTLY what it says in the description. At first when I got it It looked and seemed confusing but once. I got use to it its really easy! Its a must get if you want to change your ringtone into a personal song. I just got this app yesterday! and like others said, ITS A MUST GET FOR NEXUS 5 USERS!!

Rachna Sharma

Problems with the Lollipop update It seems as though I'm not the only one with this issue, but the app isn't available for selection anywhere in the sound settings, anymore. Is there any way this issue can be fixed? It used to work perfectly well earlier, but it's gone AWOL with the lollipop update

Casey Choo

OK button stopped working Great app, does what it says. No frills, no add, not battery consuming. Using N5 stock android KitKat. OK button doesn't work, so I'm not able to change any sounds setting at the moment. Please fix, thank you!

Nenad Antic

Restored functionality For some reason my Nexus 5 stopped accepting any other sound files except the system sound files. This app provided access to some internal Android file picker that would allow me to freely choose other sound files again.

Jonathan Yee

Works as advertised but... It works like a charm but I can't see where the google music selection is. The screenshot on the play store has it but mine doesn't. Little misleading there

A Google User

Stopped working on alarms. Not showing the selector after an update to clock while ago. Ringtones and notifications still work like supposed to. Nexus 6P.

Shannon Prinsloo

Not for new phones (Honor5x) My phone is not "broken" like this claims.. they just have not updated for new phones. Disappointed.

Ethan Lau

Ok button doesn't work This app was amazing. Hence the word was. The OK button stopped working thus making this app useless.

A Google User

Amazing! I can not live without this app. Seriously. It is the most important app in life the universe and everything! If re didn't exist I reconsider having a smart phone

Rob Saunders

Perfect, does exactly what should be a native feature for Android. It boggles me why developers don't have an interface like this out of the box.

A Google User

An absolute must have app! One of many immediate downloads after booting a new device. Rings and notifications MY way. Had this app on almost every phone since my first droid. Still one of the best. Thanks a million!

Dulcee Jo

It has never let me down Other alarm apps could be more visually appealing but this one is not only appealing.... it is spot on every morning!

Hadi Susanto

Small and easy to use Hate android ringtone picker? This apps the answer, use custom ringtones

Kapil Kashyap

Excellent... Was finding it real difficult to set mp3's as ringtones until I found this. Great job. Simple and clean. Thank you :)

Orlando Nunez

Don't work on lollipop Was working fine until I upgrade my phone to Galaxy S6 edge..stop working need help

A Google User

7.5 years later... sadly like all good things, it comes to an end. This app was extremely useful for EVERY phone I've had since the G1! Now the app has shown it's age and the most important button has completely stopped working. Goodbye Ring Extend! you've been so great to me!
