100sounds, 100birds & 100animals were developed first and foremost as Sound Effects apps. But, based on user requests, we have made the sounds available as ringtones BY WEB OR EMAIL DOWNLOAD. There are strict limitations on what an app can do. An app MAY NOT duplicate the functionality of iTunes. After all, there's a lot of money to be made by selling ringtones.
HOWEVER, we aim to please! So you can have ALL of the sound in our apps as ringtones FOR FREE!
And NOW YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES... Ringtones by EMAIL or by WEB! CHOOSE WHICHEVER METHOD YOU FIND EASIER!
Press the (i) button in the top-right of the app to go to the INFO page. On that page, press the rectangular button that says 'Visit' etc. CAREFULLY enter your email address & press REGISTER FOR RINGTONES.
EMAIL METHOD: Using your iPhone, select the ringtones you want & they will be emailed to you automatically! You need to read the email ON YOUR MAC OR PC
Download the .m4r ringtone file(s) and save them to your computer. Double click on the .m4r files or drag them into the Ringtones area of iTunes. The ringtones will then be available for syncing with your iPhone!
We have several apps (AutoRingtone, Ringtones Uncensored, AutoTTS, & Free Speech Tones) to do just that!
Type your message in the text box and it will be spoken in the voice of your choice! We offer DOZENS of voices in the PRO versions! Some apps also offer the option of ~200 introductory sound effects which you can use to 'get your attention'!
We also have European voices (Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian and more... many in Male and Female variations) in Ringtones EURO!
You type your email address, once, so you can receive an instructional email and download your ringtones by visiting www.AutoRingtone.com and logging in with the same address you entered using the app.
AutoRingtone: Just type a contact's name and a standard message is created (_YourName_ your phone is ringing. _CallerName_ is calling. _YourName_, please answer the phone.) so it's quick & easy to create ringtones for all of your contacts. PRO version has 100+ sound effects & dozens of voices, plus speed & volume control!
Ringtones Uncensored: Type any message, select from 100+ sound effects & dozens of voices! Designed for iPhone & iPod touch, but works on iPad. PRO version has 100+ sound effects & dozens of voices, plus speed & volume control!
Free Speech Tones: Similar to Ringtones Uncensored but redesigned for iPad's larger screen. Use a full-size keyboard & select from 100+ sound effects & dozens of voices! Offers speed & volume control.
AutoTTS: Similar to Freedom of SpeechTones but without the intro sound effects. Uses buttons for each speaker so it's easy to select / play with voices. PRO version offers speed & volume control.
Ringtones EURO works like Ringtones Uncensored but includes Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian and more! Many of those voices are available as Male and Female speakers! Offers speed & volume control.
Tens of thousands of users are using the app successfully. Here are some things to check.
If you cannot run the app after upgrading, DELETE and REINSTALL the app from your Mac or PC.
Is your iPhone's ringer switch on MUTE? Or is your audio output set for headphone not speakers? You might be low on memory (RAM, not storage). Try powering off and rebooting your device by holding down both the POWER and HOME buttons for ten seconds until you see the Apple logo.
Is your cellular service poor? Try downloading via iTunes from your PC or Mac.
Are you using the latest version of the iPhone O.S.? Is your phone 'jailbroken' or unlocked?
If you check all of these and for some reason cannot run the app, please contact us so we can make things right.
Please update to the newest version! We have replaced, enhanced and added hundreds of high quality sounds! If you still think a sound needs to be enhanced, please let us know which sounds so we can enhance them.
In our effort to keep the file size manageable (Less than 20MB, the limit for downloading wirelessly) and still have hundreds of sounds, we have kept all sounds to be under 5 seconds. But we can fine tune specific sounds if it's a concern.
You need to register, using the app on your iPhone, FIRST. To get to the screen where you enter your email, run the app and touch the (i) button in the top right. Then, touch the 'visit' button to go to our website. On the screen that loads, you will be able to enter your email address and REGISTER. No app has access to your email address, unless you provide it, which is a good thing, if you think about it. Make sure you typed your address correctly, using the app.
Next, you can continue using the iPhone to select specific ringtones you want to have emailed to you.
Select individual ringtones by category OR ZIPFILES which are collections of ringtones in a single file. This way you can have 100+ ringtones on your computer in seconds!
Alternatively, you can head over to your Mac or PC and start downloading ringtones using the web method, now that you are registered. Just visit www.NoTieSoftware.com and click on RINGTONES FOR REGISTERED USERS, in the header, and ENTER THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS YOU ENTERED USING THE APP.
Also, make sure you select the app you used (100sounds, 100birds, or 100animals) as it defaults to 100sounds.
After you create your ringtones using the app (AutoRingtone, Ringtones Uncensored, Free Speech Tones, AutoTTS, etc.), next, ON YOUR MAC OR PC, visit www.AutoRingtone.com.
Click on DOWNLOAD YOUR RINGTONES.
Login with the same email address you entered using the app.
Select which ringtones you want to use. Download the .m4r files and open them in iTunes, if you have an iPhone.
If you have a different phone, download the .aiff files. AIFF files should work in many phones, but some phones might require conversion to MP3. You can download software like Audacity (free for Mac or PC) to do this.
You must save the ringtones to a permanent place on your computer, such as your Documents directory.
Then, if you still have them in ZIPFILE format, double click on the zipfile to extract/uncompress them.
Next, double click on the .m4r ringtone files and they should open up in iTunes. If not, drag them into iTunes manually. You may also be able to right-click on the .m4r file and specify to Open With iTunes.
Some users have had trouble with Opera or Chrome browsers. Those programs do not know how to handle .m4r files. Instead, try Firefox or Internet Explorer.
This has to do with how AT&T or your other wireless provider transmits caller ID information. For example, you might have a user stored as 1-876-543-1200 but your carrier is transmitting 876-543-1200, without the leading '1'.
Try experimenting with different formats until it works.
You could also delete the number, and have that person call you, and then save that number. It will be saved in the same format that your carrier users.
