iOS gets custom notification tones

iOS users rejoice! Along with proper notifications, an improved lock screen and all that iCloud goodness, Apple have also (finally!) introduced another long-standing feature from other mobile OSs.

Hidden away in the Settings app in the newly released iOS 5 Beta 3 is a menu allowing customisation of various tones including texts, mail and tweets.

So far so exciting, however I do like how this is all handled from a centralised location rather than from each individual app as in Android. I guess the four year development time allowed them to get it right first time!

So what will you be using for your incoming texts? I’ve already set mine to the Catchphrase buzzer sound.
