Ringtone Designer Pro indicates incoming Apple leniency

App Store restrictions lifted

A couple of weeks ago, Apple changed its guidelines on App Store submissions, meaning, in essence, that developers were now free to use a wider range of tools to create their apps and games.

In addition, the makers of the iPhone published the complete list of rules for App Store entries for the very first time.

Should the developers not abide by any one of these directives, their app will be rejected faster than you can say Google Voice.

One such restriction that has been abolished by Steve Jobs & co. on the iOS platform is ringtone creation within apps.

Previously, the only ways to make a 30-second custom snippet of your favourite track for your iPhone involved either:

- trying some jiggery-pokery in iTunes

- exporting from GarageBand (Mac users only) or

- purchasing one from the iTunes Store

With the unfortunate ban on ringtone creation apps now lifted, though, iPhone owners are finally given access to a simple solution for an age-old problem.

It came as little surprise then to see Blackout Labs’s Ringtone Designer Pro shoot straight to the top of the UK paid-for App Store chart and to #2 on the Top Grossing list.
