The Single Greatest iPhone Ringtone Ever

posted under category: General on April 15, 2010 by Nathan

It's a simple concept, really. Think about it. What sound makes you sit up a little straighter? What sound makes you want to run forever? What sound makes you want to kick a turtle more than anything else you have ever heard in your lifetime?

The answer is obvious. You must be thinking of the invincible music from the original Super Mario Bros, circa 1985. As soon as you picked up the star, nothing could stop you. Fire breathing plants and flying fish fall by your wayside as you don the seizure-inducing clothes.

As a ringtone, this invincible music will own your attention every time. Your eyebrows will lift. Your heart will beat a little faster. Your hands may sweat.

As a final insult, as if you needed it, when you don't answer it soon enough, it goes into one minute left double time music. Yes, that's invincible on speed. Your b-sprint finger cannot handle ringtones of this magnitude.

It's 500KB, m4r, just add it to iTunes, sync and change your ringtone global or per-contact settings. I made it with Adobe Soundbooth using a free wav file I found somewhere, and I converted it to m4r with Not responsible for damage.

*Update: By request, an MP3 version for you lucky ducks using Android phones. 400KB.

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
