Mailtones – Set Custom Notifications For Emails

mailtones ElectricPocket has release a new app called Mailtones for the BlackBerry. This application could be useful for those of you that usually keep your Berry locked, or if you are driving and want to have an easy way to know who has just emailed you. With this app you can set a tone notification for somebody important or just an email that you can check later. The application lets you choose contacts and assign a tune from either a preset or from tune you want in your memory card.

This application is really useful, I know some phones already allow you to play whatever ringtone you have set for your contacts but in the BlackBerry you can only set one for the default folder, e-mail, or SMS, and only set exceptions for callers. This application seems to only work with E-mails at the moment but it be nice if they can expand it to SMS as well. They do have a  seven day trial so you can test if before purchasing. The app cost is $2.99 in the store which is pretty reasonable for such an app.

From the description:

Always missing new messages on your BlackBerry, or checking every message for the one you’re waiting for? MailTones lets you set distinctive new email sounds for your special contacts and messages, so you’ll always know who’s emailing you – instantly.
MailTones lets you easily pick new email sounds – for all your email, or just the contacts, groups and subjects that are important to you.
One useful way to use MailTones is to set your default mail tone to silent, and just set tones for people and messages you want to know about – then when your BlackBerry beeps, you’ll know its a mail message that matters.
MailTones comes with a set of distinctive professional and attention grabbing tones, or you can use any of your MP3’s or download new alert tones from the web.
MailTones integrates well with your BlackBerry email – we’ve even added a menu to the Mail app, so you can choose any message from your inbox and easily pick a Mail Tone for it – without leaving the Mail app!
MailTones also brings great flexibility to your BlackBerry email – you can customize the way it plays exactly to your tastes. You can even set a “Do Not Disturb” period, so your email won’t disturb you in the evening or over the weekend!

  1. This is a bit wrong. Depending on the software version if the person is a contact and you have a set ring tone it will play that for email/texts phone calls etc

  2. I would use it

  3. Pls pick me.
