That’s it! Simple, right?

When I first set out to set a custom tone for the alarm, there were no songs under SONGS. Instead, there was only Pick a Song. Obviously, you need to tap that and then add a song. I think you might have to do it for every song.

You can also buy ringtones through iTunes store and have them added to the list. In that case, you will be choosing the tones from under the ringtones section of the screen.
