    Hi, reading another thread where people complained about missing features on WP - specifically on not having customisable tone for SMS etc - I had an thought that there must be a more elegant way of approaching the problem than just copying what other platforms do. Then I had an idea which I thought I'd share, even if only to be told that Symbian had this feature 5 years ago. ;)

    My idea is for a centralised Notification Sound Manager, a program with it's own area of memory which would allow users to load whatever sound they want as a notification and then assign that sound to whatever notification they like. Then it occurred to me that a small area could be walled off to allow developers to add custom sounds for their apps.

    It seems to me that this might provide a simple and powerful way of adding several function simultaneously, rather than doing it piecemeal as it seems right now.

    So, what do you think?

    Am not a coder, but I can change my notification (sms, email etc.,) sounds on my 720, however I cannot add newer sounds into the options, like a personalized tone or something like that. A personalized tone can only be added for your ringtone, nothing else ;).

    Thank you, but that was my point.

    Microsoft would have to code the idea themselves, but it would seem to me a comparatively simple way to extend the personalisation options for users, without the huge overhead coding everything separately would entail.

    Well I was watching Iron man 3 and I saw the scene where he jumps into the sea, Jarvis says "Take a deep breathe sir" and I was like "Hey, I want that for my sms tune" and I realized, boy I use a wp8 and I can do nothing about it...
    I miss the customization of sms but doesn't make my life miserable if I can't change it ;)

    I can imagine a future where my device will announcement a new SMS in the voice of Eric Idle. :)
