While there’s so much to write house about in iOS, one area where Apple’s walled-garden approach becomes actually bothersome– to the point of getting on your nerves, really– is when you need to transfer media to an iPhone or iPad. The utter reliance on iTunes is infuriating and plain absurd, however until Apple decides to do something about it, we need to count on third-party devices as a workaround. And that’s where WALTR can be found in.

WALTR is a third-party software application that exists for the sole factor of problem-free transferring of media (audio and video files) from your PC to your iPhone and iPad, without worrying about conversion or playback support, and without making use of iTunes. It likewise does not need jailbreak to work. Including a simple drag and drop mechanism, WALTR lets you get anything on your iOS device ready for playback in a few clicks. This neat little tool has existed on OS X for fairly some time, and with the increasing popularity, is now lastly available for Windows too.


The excellent thing here is that WALTR for Windows is not only as basic as it was on the Mac, however likewise similarly stunning (which is something we can seldom state for Windows programs). The application integrates an uploader and converter in one bundle, and thus, any media that you move utilizing WALTR is transformed to an iOS supported format before being moved to your device. Exactly what’s even better is that you don’t require any particular apps to play this material; WALTR publishes them in such a method that they’re available in the native Video and Music apps of your iPhone and iPad.


The group behind WALTR – – Softorino – states they’re dealing with brining subtitle support to the program too, which would be excellent news for film fanatics. The Mac version has actually currently gotten this, so Windows shouldn’t be too far behind.




Personally, I love WALTR, and not just the software; it’s the idea behind it that’s applaudable. The tool works, and it intends to address an issue that has actually bugged iPhone owners for fairly some time. There have actually been designs in the past, however those mostly counted on your device to either be jailbroken, or have actually certain apps set up. WALTR takes that idea to a much easier level, and sees to it that you go through as little hassle as possible. As they say, “it just works,” which’s what we love about it.
