Use a voice recording as iPhone ringtone Apps
Let's face it: ringtones are boring. And annoying. How many times do you want to hear the refrain from your favorite song when someone calls? And do you realize how annoying it is to others to hear a blasting bit of the latest Lady Gaga song.

On the other hand, using a default iPhone ringtone means that, if you're in a crowded area, lots of people will check their phones, thinking that they're getting a call, since they use the same ringtone.

If you want a change, you can use a voice recording as your ringtone. OS X Daily recently published a tip explaining how to do this. You record a voice memo, sync it to your Mac, change the extension, then sync it back.

This said, think twice about whether you really want to do this. Because a voice recording could be more annoying than music, to others.

Use a voice recording as iPhone ringtone

It's not only good for ring tones, but you can use them for email notifications as well. I have it announce which email account just received mail, or that a VIP mail arrived.

The other benefit is that it can drive your spouse crazy:
"Honey, did you just say something?"
"No dear, I just got some email; that was the phone talking."

Could it be worse than years of "You've got mail" by you-know-who? :)

It would be really cool to have the caller/sender record the message in their own voice for you to use as the custom ringtone associated with their number/email.

This can be done completely on device by using garage band. No mac. No sync necessary.

I also used Garageband to make ringtones. But I used a recording of my daughter giggling at something my grandson had done. Now my ring tone is the sound of my daughter absolutely losing the plot giggling. Least offensive ringtone ever generated.
