AppTones, the Sound of Messages, is a brand new way of exchanging free text messages over the iPhone. It combines pre-recorded lines of text (phrases), matching sounds, tones and icons into a cool iMedia Message packet. It works through the existing internet data plan of your iPhone.
AppTone’s new Message Composition System changes the conventional way of typing messages. It allows you to select pre-recorded iMedia Messages and then “THUMB” the message plus icon and sound to a friend. With AppTones to say, “I love you” is only a touch away on your iPhone.
Once you have selected a pre-recorded line you simply touch the “match” button on the menu bar and it will automatically match the icon with the most appropriate sound/tone. Based on your personal preferences you can also manually match text, icon and tones.
Apptones, the Sound of Messages, innovates the way messages are sent and received. It comes with a free iMedia Message Pack that is funny, useful and original. Its built-in phrase ranking logic will automatically put your favorite messages on top of the iPhone scroll bar. The AppTones alert tone is sender defined, permitting original and surprising alert tones on the receiver’s end.
If this happens to you, please make sure your friend's phone number is saved in your Address Book using the international format starting with the + sign followed by the country code and number. For instance +1 (000) 000-0000 for the US.
AppTones will recognize and select all your Contacts in your iPhone that are part of the AppTones community. The phone number is used to indentify those contacts. You simply have to make sure your iPhone Contacts’ phone numbers are entered according to the standard international format starting with the + sign.
The list of contacts in AppTones is dynamic and new contacts will appear as they install AppTones in their phones.
If you change your phone number you have to delete AppTones, re-install it and register again with your new phone number.
Of course, it is free to send messages to contacts in other countries, just like it is free to send emails to people in other countries.
Send us an email via "contact" containing your email address and mobile phone number (in the Message field). AppTones will use this information in order to get in touch with you and provide you with the unique security code that will enable the proper functioning of AppTones for you.
If you can't send push notifications you might have notifications disabled in the iPhone Settings. To fix this, launch iPhone Settings and tap on the Notifications menu and make sure that AppTones Notifications are turned On for the Badges, Alerts, and Sounds. After enabling push notifcations for AppTones in the iPhone Settings, turn off your iPhone for 30 seconds.
AppTones uses the same internet data plan that you use for surfing the Internet. AppTones usage would be no different from the normal data roaming charges when traveling abroad / overseas for email and web usage. Anyway, AppTones would be free to use over a Wi-Fi connection. To confirm that your data roaming is disabled, go into iPhone Settings > General > Network > Data Roaming and make sure it is set to Off.
