TONETHIS, THE FIRST MOBILE DESKTOP CONTENT-SHARING SOLUTION
San Jose, CA., Jul 23, 2007 — Originally just a tool for producing customized ringtones from your own desktop and transferring them to your phone, ToneThis has quickly evolved into a platform for delivering all sorts of content to your phone—and between phones. While still free, ToneThis now includes mobile content sharing, video support, new editing tools, toolbar integration, and free or premium content from third parties. ToneThis software allows cellphone owners to create, edit, and share their own ringtones, wallpapers, videos, and games. The ToneThis solution can also be used by web content providers who want to embed “send to phone” functionality onto their websites, or in their software.

ToneThis has partnered with several online content providers to provide ToneThis users with access to a vast store of both free and premium third-party content.

Red Fish Media, a leading mobile content storefront enabler, will provide off-deck premium mobile games to ToneThis users. ToneThis fans can now purchase mobile games from the games tab within the ToneThis application.

Chuck D’s Rapstation has partnered with ToneThis to mobilize their catalog of half a million independent artist tracks. Users may now click "Send to phone" on any Rapstation song. The song is automatically opened and made available for editing within ToneThis, so the user can then edit the song and send it to their phone as a ringtone. Lathan Hodge, President of Rapstation said, "I'm excited to have ringtones available for our users. We were able to integrate the free ToneThis SDK in less than four hours!"

ToneThis has also partnered with DeviantArt, to enable wallpaper delivery of over 25 million pieces of original artwork, and ToneThis users also have access now to such content providers as Greystripe, ArtistFirst and much more.

ToneThis users can now search for publicly licensed photos or video content on Flickr and Revver and then personalize and deliver the content as a mobile wallpaper or video. ToneThis has also enabled users to publish their own mobile content creations to Flickr and Revver.

ToneThis has also hit several new milestones. For example, ToneThis is now a download.com Top 5 application in the Most Popular section in the mobile category, with over ½ million users while in beta, who have successfully delivered over 5M pieces of mobile content.

And of course, users still get to choose, create, and edit their own ringtones. ToneThis will convert your MP3s to a compatible format, send the file to you in a message, and make it a snap to install the file on your phone. ToneThis also creates wallpaper images from photos and other images in your personal photo collection, using the same convert and upload concept to bypass carrier limitations.

TONETHIS LOADS IMAGES ONTO CELLPHONES.
San Francisco, CA., Nov 22, 2004 - ToneThis has released version 2.2 adding support for images including Jpegs and Bitmaps to be delivered to the user's phone as wallpapers. Raj Singh, ToneThis's co-founder and President states "This is the first step in making ToneThis more than just a tool to send ringtones to your phone but a platform for delivering all sorts of content to your phone." This release also includes added device support.


TONETHIS LAUNCHES THE TONEBOARD 10.
San Francisco, CA., Nov 19, 2004 - ToneThis has launched the ToneBoard 10, a monthly board listing the top ringtone artists on the ToneThis network. Raj Singh, ToneThis's co-founder and President says "Given the thousands of ringtones sent via our product each month, ToneThis has been able to anonymously compile the hottest ringtone artists. We're hoping the ToneBoard 10 will serve as a bechmark for why more artists need to make their music proactively available for ringtones. What greater promotion is there?!"

The ToneBoard 10 unlike existing ringtone charts will focus on strictly "real music" ringtones versus the more traditional "polyphonic" ringtones. Raj Singh adds, "You really can't mix the two charts. What may sound good as "boing-bong" may not sound good when your listening to the real thing."

ToneThis hopes the ringtone charts will promote artists and increase adoption in addition to helping guage the ringtone music industry and as Raj Singh states "to have fun - ringtones are cool, what's your ringtone? I noticed our first wave of charts shows that hip-hop is the clear winner. Rock fans help me out here!".


TONETHIS 2.0 RELEASED.
San Francisco, CA., Oct 18, 2004 - ToneThis has released version 2.0 adding support for several Canadian carriers and the first desktop ringtone product to deliver to Verizon. This release also include numerous bug-fixes, imrpoved stability, a new UI and support for 10s of new phones.


TONETHIS LOADS MP3 ONTO CELLPHONES.
Los Angeles, CA., Nov 26, 2003 - ToneThis, a startup based in Los Angeles founded by four students, launched a service that allows customers to wirelessly transfer music, sound effects and voice from their desktop computers onto their cellphones.

Users can create their own cellphone content from their personal music collections, instead of choosing from a library of songs provided by the cellphone company. Instead of charging per download, the service offers unlimited use for a one-time fee of $14.95.

Traditional cellphone ringtones known as "Polyphonic ringtones" are not capable of playing voice or music and sound very computer-like / robotic. ToneThis targets next generation cellphones that support "PureVoice ringtones" that allow music, sound effects and voice to be a cellphone ringtone.

To protect against piracy, ToneThis only works between the user's desktop and a single telephone number. It also has users pledge to use only legally obtained material, such as a CD bought at a record store, although the company concedes its product could be misused by owners of pirated music.

The Recording Industry Association of America, which has led the fight against music piracy, says it considers copying legally obtained music for personal use on a cellphone to be legitimate, as long as the content isn't shared. The RIAA declined to comment on free ringtone-sharing services.

"What we're trying to do is give the user ultimate control of their phone - in this case it's their music, in the future it will include their photos," says Raj Singh, ToneThis's co-founder and president. "Most carriers are trying to figure out how to restrict the user's choice and regulate content through their networks - You can't blame them, cellphone ringtones made $17M for 2002 and IDC projects it will be a $400M market in 2005. We're coming in at the right time."

Initially, the ToneThis service will only work on a few advanced phone models on the Sprint PCS next-generation network. TJ Pannu, ToneThis's co-founder and CTO says "Sprint's open architecture allows users to access services like ToneThis, even when no formal deal is in place. I expect other carriers beyond Sprint will open up their networks, much the way Internet service providers have become conduits for outside traffic. What has been a series of closed networks is becoming more and more open. Carrier, content providers and phone makers appear to be on a collision course. Phone makers want to add more and more services; carriers want to make money on content flowing through their systems and content providers want to be compensated for their creativity."
