The missing iPhone feature Apple didn’t mention – hint: CallerID
Rochester, New York – Even with iOS 4.1, the iPhone continues to be magical and revolutionary, but it still doesn’t do one thing that phone owners really need. The iPhone doesn’t tell you who is calling!
Users must purchase and assign musical ringtones and then try to remember which song is for which contact. For years, other phones have been able to speak the caller’s name or number allowing busy professionals to know who is calling without looking at the phone. No Tie Software’s AutoRingtone app and service empowers users to create custom Talking Ringtones using TEXT-TO-SPEECH.
Instead of relying on stock ringtones, users can create their own talking “Caller ID” ringtones, that say exactly what they want, such as “Steve, the President is calling. He needs your advice. Again. Should I let it go to voicemail?” They say your first million is the hardest. Perhaps that’s why it took seven months for AutoRingtone users to create 1,000,000 custom talking ringtones but only three months for the second million?!
Recently, No Tie teamed up with independent rock band Fulton Read to create a private label version of AutoRingtone, called Fultones. Fans of Fulton Read can combine several music clips with the AutoRingtone TTS service to create custom ringtones. The app is free and provides links to Fulton Read’s music on iTunes.
With AutoRingtone Pro, users can select from Dozens of professional (British Man or Woman, Old Man, GPS Gal, etc.) and funny voices (Jersey Girl, Valley Girl, Space Alien).
Users can also select nearly 200 sound effects as an attention-getting introduction!
There are no limitations. Create unlimited ringtones and messages are completely uncensored. Indeed, many users are taking advantage of that feature!
Ringtones are downloadable in both .m4r as well as .aiff formats, so they can be created on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad but used on iPhones as well as other phones. iPhone owners can even create ringtones for their non-iPhone owning friends to use when the iPhone owner calls those friends!
No Tie created a funny video, seen by thousands, demonstrating how the service works, called “AutoRingtone: Behind the Curtain”!
AutoRingtone has been a consistent bestseller since introduction, reaching as high as #3 in its category. No Tie reached this milestone the old fashioned way, providing a great app and a great service, at a great price. AutoRingtone Pro is on sale now for just $0.99!
Since 2008, No Tie Software has been delivering fun and clever iPhone apps, including bestselling Text-to-Speech, Ringtone and Sound FX apps such as AutoVerbal, AutoRingtone and 100sounds.
