3.      Zedge


This handy customization app for android furnishes your device with thousands of ringtones, wallpapers and notification sounds. You can sieve through the immense possibilities and find a perfect theme that you can use. They are so many that you can change every day, or even each hour. The images are a snug fit for your phone’s screen dimensions. You can configure a custom ringtone for each contact on your phone.

4.      Ringdroid


Ringdroid makes it super easy for you to turn any song into a ringtone. Definitely, the average song is 3-4 minutes long, which makes it too long for a ringtone (that is, unless you never answer your phone). Ringdroid lets you isolate the parts you love best (e.g. choruses) and make them a new audio file that can be selected as a ringtone. This file can also be used as the alarm ringtone – the entire process is quick and easy.

5.      Cover


It’s not always necessary to wade through a pattern or screen lock each time you need to use one of your favorite apps on Android. Cover is a ‘clever’ Android app that learns from your habits and gives you the apps you need whenever you need them. It makes things a lot easier on your smartphone.

To best customize your android handset, you need to root your phone. Read this article to find out how to do this.
