A short time ago, I received word from Electric Pocket that their Ringo ringtone application has been recently updated. Originally, a user could create custom tones to alert them of incoming calls, email or SMS. With this new update, Ringo now allows you to customize a flashing LED notification, allowing for audible and visual alerts. This is a great addition, as some users want to set their phone to silent, but still receive notifications. The main features include:

  • Easily use your own MP3 music as ringtones and message alerts
  • Set unique ringtones for each of your friends
  • Set your phone to block or ignore certain callers or groups
  • Set custom LED colors for contacts and alerts
  • Set different email, SMS and PIN message tones for your friends
  • Set ringtones for caller groups and categories
  • Set different email and message tones for different groups
  • Set your BlackBerry to silent overnight or on weekends
  • Works with the BlackBerry Profile app and co-operates with alert settings
  • -Silent when Blackberry Profile set to Off
  • -Ringo will only ring for Phone Calls if "Phone Only" profile is selected
  • -Ditto for Profile "Vibrate only" setting - Ringo will only Vibrate
  • -Works with other alert settings for other apps (Facebook, Twitter etc.), as set in the current Profile
  • -BugMe! alert support using Task alert settings in Ringo

Ringo is no stranger to CrackBerry; I reviewed an earlier version back in March of 2008, which you can check out here. Ringo is available at the CrackBerry App Store/SuperStore for $12.99 and has a free trial period.
