Q: I am glad to see that Apple is expanding options for ringtone creation (re: your article about Garageband ‘08) but I am a PC user. Are there any other options?

- Brad

A: Since Apple does not provide a utility like GarageBand for the PC, there is presently no official Apple-endorsed solution for creating ringtones for the iPhone on a Windows platform.

However, since Apple seems to have moved away from their previous restrictive ringtone support in iTunes, many of the third-party ringtone applications are now in the very least tacitly supported by iTunes and the iPhone. For Mac users who do not have the latest version of GarageBand, Ambrosia Software’s iToner ($15, trial available) is a popular choice.

For Windows users, there is Efiko Software’s iPhoneRingToneMaker ($15, trial available).
