User Rating:

Are you ready to hear “Whoa, where’d you get that cool ringtone?” This is exactly what you will hear after you pick out some cool ringtones and alerts for your Android phone with the Zedge app.

The Good

Zedge provides a huge database of sounds to choose from for a new alert tone and/or ringtone. You can also download high quality wallpapers for your phone, including live wallpapers. The app allows you to set automatically changing wallpapers, as well as add a widget to your homescreen to quickly switch the wallpaper with one click. There is also the ability to share cool sounds with your friends via email, Google+, Twitter, text message, or Facebook.

The Bad

The app requires a wifi or data connection in order to use it. Unfortunately, there are some sounds included in the app that contain offensive phrases without warning. There is a small ad included at the bottom of the screen, and it would have been nice if Zedge offered a 99 cent non-free version to use without the annoying ad.

The Ugly Truth

Zedge is the easiest way for you to find free new ringtones and alert sounds for your Android phone. The UI is easy to use, but unfortunately, you have to be connected to the internet to use the app at all. It is well worth the download, though, as the extensive library of sounds will surely allow you to find one that is perfect for you.

Learning Curve:N/A

Read the Developer's Notes:
For years ZEDGE™ has been the most trusted and popular source of free ringtones and wallpapers in the world. 50 million people get more than 300 million free downloads from Zedge every month. ZEDGE’s brand is synonymous with high quality, diversity, uniqueness and great fun.

CNET Editors’ rating: “Outstanding”
“Overall, we think Zedge is a winner. It has a huge database of high-quality wallpaper, ringtones, and notification sounds, it's updated frequently, and it's incredibly simple to navigate.”

In this app you’ll be able to seamlessly download free, high quality Ringtones, Notification Sounds, HD Wallpapers and Live Wallpapers optimized for your device. In addition, ZEDGE™ helps you find the best and noteworthy Games from Google Play.

ZEDGE™ recently added a Games channel where you’ll also find cool, relevant and excellent games that you haven’t seen before. ZEDGE™ makes sense of Google Play and suggests the games that are right for you.

• Set ringtones, notification sounds, wallpapers and live wallpapers directly from the app.
• Find new games recommended just for you.
• Supports default ringtone, contact ringtones, message tones, alarms, alerts and all types notifications.
• Manage and organize downloaded items in your Downloads tab.
• Setting for automatically changing wallpapers (auto change).
• Widget for switching wallpapers.
• A Game Launcher Widget that automatically collects your games into one customizable widget. No more need to look through all your apps to find a game.

Millions of people have put their trust into ZEDGE™ and we want to keep it that way. Here's the background on why we ask for certain permissions:

We need these permissions in order to set contact ringtones in the app. Without this it's impossible to offer the "set as contact ringtone" feature which many of you appreciate. We DO NOT read, transfer, store or use any of your personal information or contact data. This permission has always been required - we did not add it recently.

Q: I’m not able to find popular music ringtones or mp3 music on Zedge. Why?
A: Zedge respects that commercial artists normally want money for their music and that they don’t want to give it away for free. We respect that. Zedge is not about music BUT about huge amounts of unique and rare stuff made and shared by people and independent artists from all parts of the world.
