    Hey everyone,

    Do you know of an app that would do this? For example, when I'm texting a lot, the same ringtone over and over gets a little monotonous. I'm using the Rite of Spring, so if I could have a set of like 10 moments from the piece that it rotated through, that would be great as it would provide some variety but I could still easily know that they were texts since the tones came from the same piece.

    Tasker could do this, though it would be a little involved to configure it. If you haven't seen/used Tasker, this won't make sense, but:

    Set a context of "SMS Received"
    Variable Add %RINGER,1
    Ringtone Notification SONG1 If %RINGER=1
    Ringtone Notification SONG2 If %RINGER=2
    Ringtone Notification SONG3 If %RINGER=3
    Variable Clear %RINGER If %RINGER>3

    What this does is each time an SMS is received, it increments a counter, and uses the counter to determine what file to use for a ringer. Once the counter reaches beyond the number of songs you want to use, it resets and the cycles starts over.

    ShuffleTone 2.0 will do the job too. Can set different list for Ringtones and Notifications. It's pretty cool. Used it ever since I got my eris. Can also back up lists to SD card so when you flash another rom (if rooted) you can just restore that list. Saves a lot of time if you have like 50 ringtones being shuffled.
