Lookout Siri! With the government shutdown, it appears that President Obama has been moonlighting as a voiceover announcer thanks to Ringtone Director Presidential Edition! That's right, whatever users type will be spoken by the President of the United States, and the audio can be saved as a ringtone in both Apple's .m4r iPhone format and the .MP3 format for Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry or other devices!
While former President George W. Bush has been relatively silent in the public arena, he has apparently come out of retirement to join the fun! Users can select either Barack Obama or George Bush to speak their custom ringtones!
With Ringtone Director users can create custom text-to-speech Talking Caller ID ringtones that say whatever the user types! The award-winning Ringtone Director app offers 50 voices including Apple's classic Siri. Now the voices of Presidents Bush & Obama are available in a new Presidential Edition!
It's fun to create ringtones, and even more fun when the phone rings! Plus, nobody has to guess whose phone is ringing, or which contact is calling, because the iPhone can finally announce your name and the contact's name, and whatever else you want it to say! Plus, ringtones can be used for alarm clock alerts, as well as notifications for incoming email and text messages. This makes the Universal app ideal for iPad and iPod touch users, too!
Some sample ringtones created with the app include:
"Hey Bill. Joe Biden is calling. I suggest you let it go to voice mail. That's what I do!"
"Attention, Anna, this is the President. Your phone is ringing. Be careful what you say. We are always listening!"
"Hey Hillary, this is Barack Obama. This is your 3am wake up call!"
Todd Bernhard, founder of NoTie.NET, makers of the Ringtone Director apps noted "the iPhone is great, but it still doesn't provide Talking Caller ID. With Ringtone Director, users can create completely customizable ringtones that announce whatever the user types using high quality Text-To-Speech voices." Bernhard adds "if the government is going to listen to your phone calls, the President might as well announce who is calling!"
Note: NoTie.NET offers a variety of languages, separately, in apps named Ringtones EURO, Asian Ringtones, and Arabic Ringtones. iSpeech.com powers the Presidential voices.
Ringtone Director Presidential Edition 1.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category.
