There is an app for pretty much everything at this point. It's like rule 34 for smartphones, and that's where Type Your Ringtone comes in. You just enter some text, and the app turns it into a ringtone. What, this isn't what you've always wanted?

The app includes a variety of voices, including US English, French, UK English, and more. You can also fill the text with English words and pick another language for a different accent. Actually, you should do this – it's amusing. Want to see how it works? If you insist.

Type Your Ringtone saves the clips and lets you set them as ringtones or notifications within the app. The free app has ads and no options beyond the voice selection. The paid app costs $1.00 and includes settings for the voice pitch and speed. There are also no ads or limits on the number of ringtones you can store.

    I probably shouldn't post this, but I'm pretty sure this can be done with tasker

      Many things can be done with Tasker. But unfortunately there are too many users that aren't able or just don't want to be able to handle Tasker.

        I'm one of those users. I'd rather spend all that time trying out different wallpapers (and banana ringtones).

        Yeah well, with all the time that I've spent on Tasker, I could have learned another language. I'm happy to use it but I don't pretend that other people should.

    I damn near lost it at the French banana phone.

  • Patrick Thompson

    Are the only options other languages? It'd be cool if there were options like HAL 9000 or some random Android voice (robot, not phone)

    I hereby request similar demos but using the parts of The Fox song: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/ylvis/thefox.html.

    Damn! I saw the app icon and thought the new Taco Bell app was being released!

    Hmmm.... I think I will stick with Tasker and "misc > say to file"

    Holy amazeballs, this is awesomesauce right here.

    Gosh dang it, give me a Jarvis talker for my phone!!! The English (UK) was a woman. :(

  • rickneworleansla

    I've had my notifications set up to say new email, new work email, new message, etc. for some time now. I had to search the internet for the free text to mp3 converts then manually set them as the custom notifications. Hopefully this app will save me some time.

  • FatFredJones

    Call Announcer does this and it will read out unknown numbers. You can have a completely different announcement for known callers.
