There are so many websites for ringtone downloads. We have Thumbplay, Ringophone, Jamster, Brinked and a whole lot more sites. Ringtone websites offer either tones or tones under a subscription. Nontheless, the ringtone that we all are looking for are quality ringtones. 2013 has been a good year for ringtones and other mobile applications. I am predicting this 2014 would even be an even better year for ringtones. What we should expect is a lot of users will not just settle for ordinary monotones or even polytones. People will not even be satisfied with mp3 ringtones anymore. I’m guessing with the development in technology, people will be more open to video ringtones even. This might be the next big thing in the ringtone industry.
So, what more can we expect this year from ringtone providers? What innovations can they think of to make subscribers interested in downloading ringtones from their site? Will the video ringtone be the next big thing or will users be satisfied with the tones that they have? Remember when the SMS hit its peak, millions and millions of text messages where sent across users all over the nation, but after a while it dwindled. Will the ringtone industry provide a better reason for subscribers to keep on downloading ringtones from them?
If you will be downloading ringtones, whether or not, whether monotone, mp3 or video tone; the number one criterion is quality of the ringtone. Aside from quality I suggest you find your favorite ringtone website which has these following:
Ease of Use – it is best to browse a website if you know where you are at. If the ringtone website is easy to navigate, you would most likely find yourself going back to that site again browsing for the latest ringtones. Search categories should be done properly. Ringer types should also be categorized. Attractiveness of the site would make a website a well visited site.
Selection – You also revisit the site because of its selection. It should provide not just the oldies but the latest ringtones. If there is a top 10 panel then it’s a good site.
Cell phone compatibility – It should be compatible with almost all major phones and carriers. It should be compatible with Apple, Nokia, Samsung, HTC, Sony Erricson, and the latest Android phones. It should also be compatible with Alltel, AT&T, Boost, Cellular One, Cellular South, Cingular, Cricket, Nextel, TMobile, Verizon, Virgin Mobile and others.
Sound Quality – Of course, the download would just be deleted if the sound is not of quality. This should be the goal of all ringtone providers, give quality sounding ringtones.
Help/Support – If you are subscribing and paying for your ringtone, you should be provided with a good customer support at least. There should be forums, blogs, chat support, phone support and FAQs section so to help you out with your ringtone.
Website developers should not just focus on the face value of the ringtone website but the quality of content. But if you put these two together, you have one hell of a ringtone website.
