iOS 5 star wars alert tones


Hopefully that explains my brief absence. If not…you’ve never been a college student. Anywho, Apple’s iOS 5 software update was released on Wednesday, and with it came a brand-new alert tones store. The current top alert tone, you ask?

That’s right. I cannot tell you how fun it is to have R2-D2 as my text message alert tone. I also snagged Darth Vader breathing and Agnes from Despicable Me (“IT’S SO FLUFFY I’M GONNA DIE”). Now, if only they’d get a few GLaDOS tones…

From MacRumors:

Ringtones have been available for purchase for a while, but the Alert Tones are a brand new offering.

Ringtones are $1.29 and alert tones are $0.99.

To get to the Tones Store, head to Settings/Sounds and select any of the tone options. Then click “Buy More Tones” at the top of that window.

Who else has snagged some of these awesome nerdy alert tones?
