Still working despite Apple

Still works perfectly despite Apple's tinkering with iTunes 12.9.
Just uncheck save to itunes in preferences and then save the file to your desktop, then drag & drop file into Tones on sidebar within itunes when your phone is connected.

It’s good, but doesn’t save the ringtone to iTunes as stated on screen. You have to find the ringtone you just created in Finder on the MacBook Pro and copy it. Then open iTunes and plug your phone into USB port. Click the symbol for your phone to open the list of things on the phone. There you will see Tones. Open this and paste your ringtone into the window. Finally, sync your phone in iTunes. Your ringtone is now listed under Settings/Sounds/Ringtones on your phone.
This is probably down to Apple’s decision to remove functionality from iTunes with the latest update. Tones no longer appear in iTunes itself, only on your phone.

fast and easy to use

The instructions are clear. The app runs very smooth and no delay. It directly import the song to the itunes and quite convenient.
