Today, I’m very happy to introduce Apple Gazette’s very first piece of software. A very simple Automator built application based on this tutorial for converting AAC files into ringtones for the iPhone.
The application is free to download. You are using it at your own risk. Please read the Read Me file before using the application. iTunes MUST BE closed for it to work. If iTunes is open, it will not add the file to the Ringtones tab on your iPhone.
If you have any problems with it, let me know in the comments below, and I’ll try to fix them. I’ve tried this on both an Intel and PPC Mac, running Tiger, and it works just fine.
OK – Let’s give iRing2 a shot. This is still an Automator workflow. It works just fine for me, but I haven’t been able to test it on another machine yet. It takes the AAC file, turns it into an m4r file, lets you move it to your iTunes Ringtone folder, then converts it back to an m4a file after its there.
I’ve successfully uploaded 2 rintones to my iPhone using it. If you don’t have a Ringtones folder in your iTunes Music folder you will need to create it for iRing to run the script properly.
Let me know how it works for you.
If you’re still using iTunes 7.4 you can download the original iRing here.

Thanks to Kevin for sending in the tutorial.
