iPhone ringtones

Hey, everybody.

We’ve quietly introduced support for iPhone ringtones to Myxer. If you look at the main page for any item in the Myxer catalog, you’ll see a little “Download for iPhone” link under the phone number box that looks like this:

iPhone icon

Check out today’s Pick of the Day to see what I’m talking about.

When you click the link, you’ll be able to download a file to your PC that you can then import into iTunes and sync to your iPhone. Pretty cool, huh?

(We wanted to make the ringtones downloadable right from iPhone when browsing the Myxer site, but that’s not possible because of how Apple’s locked down the device. For now, you’ll have to use your desktop computer to pull down your tones.)

Have fun with it, and as always let us know if you have any problems or question.

Myk

— UPDATE – 7/2/2008 —

Hi again,

I just wanted to give all of you iPhone folks an update. As many of you have noticed, there is currently no Download to iPhone link if you customize a ringtone or make your own ringtone. Sorry about that.

We are working on adding that to our site and hope to have it available soon.  IWell keep you updated.

Add a ‘Send To Phone’ button to your site

Here is a easy way to mobilize the content on your site or blog by adding a ‘Send to Phone’ button under any image, video, or music file. A good example of this is how http://www.box.net lets users with music or pictures in their online storage accounts send their content straight to their phones. Using the Myxer API you can send a url to Myxer with a phone number and we will send it to that phone – Cool!

This is a static example but realistically you’d want to script this to dynamically appear next to any content on your site – images, music, or videos.

Here is the breakdown of the url example above:

http://www.myxertones.com/magic/?(Trailing slash is important)

u=http%3A//farm4.static.flickr.com/32
49/2300911576_1eebd26c5a.jpg

u=url-encoded url of content (required) – This can be the url to a music file, picture, or video.

&t=Elephant

t=display name (required) – This will be used as the display name for the content.

That’s it, one link and you are set! Let us know how it goes, I can’t wait to see where they’ll start showing up. Have Fun!

Everyone’s at SXSW, but I’m stuck in LA

So it seems like just about everybody in the friggin’ company is in Austin at South by SouthWest now, and I’m stuck in LA with a bunch of tall guys in suits. What gives? Last year at this time, I was backstage with Amy Winehouse and Twitter was making its debut, and this year I’m getting ready for dinner with a lawyer after lunch with investment bankers.  Something has got to give here….

Here’s to hoping you all are having more fun than I am!
