How to Create Ringtones for iPhone using iTunes

I’m a big fan of custom ringtones and despite of famous iPhone pre built ring-tones, I always prefer to create ringtones for iPhone by myself.  There are many iPhone apps which let you create ringtone directly from iPhone but here we will be using iTunes to make ringtones for our iPhone. I have been using this tutorial for my iPhone4 ringtones .

iPhone ringtones can easily be created using iTunes. To create ringtone for your iPhone follow these simple steps.

So lets get started with simple 1-2-3 step and create our first ringtone. All you need to pick is a nice song, which you want to convert into ring-tone.

Create Ringtones for iPhone with 1-2-3 step:

Select a song for which you want to create ringtone. Right click and click on get info.

In the option tab , select the start and stop time for your ringtone. Keep it lower than 35 seconds.

Create ringtones for iPhone

Now right click on song and click on Convert To AAC. In this case it will create a 30 second Aac file. Now right click on newly created aac file and click on show in explorer. Rename the file with extension .m4r

For example if your song name is songs.aac rename it to song.m4r , once done, all you need is to transfer the audio file to iPhone and from settings on your device, you can select the newly created ringtone. I’m sure it’s not something tough and anyone with little computer how to knowledge can end up making unlimited songs.

The Naked truth of Nudeit Apple iPhone Application

Yesterday I posted about Download iPhone Nudeit application : Watch people nude and undoubtedly many people downloaded it. Video of this apple iPhone application seems so promising that people thought of it for real and downloaded it. Just to verify the authenticity of nudeit iphone application, I spend my precious .99$ and downloaded this application from iPhone Apps store.

First time when I run this application I was shocked that even the welcome screen of this page is no where close to what they have mentioned in the video. I found myself cheated at that moment.

I activated nudeit iPhone application and put my friend in front of camera, and as expected this iPhone application comes out as a scam and it sounds like a prank played by the creator of this application and more over I feel pity for iPhone guy on making this application part if Apps store. No doubt marketing guys for nudeit application has done a great job, but at the cost of people money.

See the screenshot and the funny part of this application

IMG_0104 IMG_0105

Can you see the cartoonish body of a man there below the face. This application is using the face recognition technology and thus add a semi-nude image of a guy or a gal and that’s what this application is all about.

Apps store should have mentioned about this application that it’s a prank iPhone application and what ever is written in the description of the application is a complete hoax and so is the video added for marketing of this application. IMO Apps store should not have accepted such application.

What’s your opinion about such software?

iTunes not Recognizing iphone and Ipod

This is one of the troubleshooting post for iPhone  and iPod when itunes fail to recognizing your iphone or ipod.

There are multiple solution to this problem.

Easy Solution :

Download the latest version of itunes and install it. Try plug in your iphone and see if itunes is able to recognize your iPhone. If yes, buy me a beer else follow the second step.

Second solution : Working and Long method

This solution is provided by Codyc03

 

1. 1. First off you need to have iTunes installed and the ipod touch plugged in
and recognized as ‘something’ e.g. digital camera (it shouldn’t really
matter what it’s recognized as, but it needs to be found by windows).

2. Search for usbaapl in the C:\WINDOWS system folder:
open windows explorer (e.g. Right-click Start and then click ‘explore’)
right-click the WINDOWS folder and select ‘Search’).
Type in usbaapl and hit Search – try to ignore the dog!
You should find the driver info in a sub folder of C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE

e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B

Remember that location (either leave the search box open or copy the folder
name into note pad – you’ll need it later)
If you don’t find usbaapl.sys, usbaapl.inf etc. then your drivers have not
been installed with the iTunes install and you’ll have to reinstall iTunes.

3. Locate the ipod-camera device:
o Open the device manager, e.g. using Start > Control Panel >
Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager
o Look for a device called ‘ipod’ – if your ipod shows up as
‘digital camera’ it will be under something like ‘imaging devices’.

4. Update the driver:
o Right click the ‘ipod-camera’ in device manager and click on
‘Update Driver’ – the Hardware Update Wizard will open.
o Check the ‘Install from a list or specific location’ then click ‘Next’
o Check ‘Dont search. I will choose the driver to install’ click ‘Next’
Here you should see the Apple Device to update, click “Have Disk”
In the text box below type (or better copy and paste) or browse the folder
containing the ipod driver information found in step 1 (in the example
above it was

C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B),
Click “OK”

The second process seems to be lengthy but in my case it resolved the problem. Let me know it works for you or not.
