Erica over at TUAW.com has done it again with the “Song Sender” app which allows you to navigate your iTunes music library on your iPhone and either set a song to be a ringtone or you can even send a song to a friend via email!
You have to install the app via the secure FTP method I previously described. Once installed and ran, Song Sender presents you with a scrolling list of all the music on your iPhone. If you click on a song, the menu options (shown at left) are given. You can start or playing a song, Send to Email (which I found took awhile on wifi) or Send to Ringtones which pretty much replaces my need to ever have to run iFuntastic again (at least for ringtones). That is pretty cool!
It literally seems to get better on an hourly basis in the third party app world for the the iPhone. It will be interesting to see what, if anything, Apple does to either stop or encourage this kind of development on a supposedly closed system considering hackers and programmers have been adding the functionality that everyone has been saying is lacking. So far, Apple’s only response has been patches with primarily bug fixes which are always welcome, but not much else.
