WebTone 1.5 Released

After a bit of a wait since the last release, I’m pleased to say that WebTone 1.5 is now out and people should have started getting the prompts from the MarketPlace to update. If you don’t already have it installed, why not?! You can go to the MarketPlace and install it now. So what’s new? Well, read on…

What’s New?

  • New Icon

Well, for a start, we have a new application icon! Thanks, Mike.


  • A Browser!

One of the questions I’ve got asked a lot is about how to get the links of mp3/wma files into WebTone. I did a quick tutorial on one such way, but it’s a messy way of doing it. So based on this, I’ve added a web browser to the app which makes it super easy to browse the net for ringtones and download them straight away. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s a video:

And this doesn’t just work with sites like Zedge, you can also do this right from your own SkyDrive (although at the moment, the file does have to be in a publicly available folder, this will be looked into for a future release). Sadly, due to some strangeness with DropBox cookies, you can’t download files from DropBox (unless you are given a direct link to the file).

  • Bing Searching

One of the other regular occurrences that I see based on some of the telemetry I’m getting back is a lot of people are putting search terms into the main link box, which of course causing problems. I have now made it so that if you don’t type a valid link into that box, it will do a bing search for you to help you on your way.

  • More languages

As I’ve said lots of times, WebTone is available in a number of languages, that previously consisted of Dutch, Chinese, Italian and Spanish. With 1.5 I’ve been able to add French and German to this list. I’m always up for having support for even more languages than that, so if you feel you can help, I urge you to look at this request.
