WALTR 2 (+Giveaway!)
So here’s my new content strategy: fail to write much all week and then post a review of a brand new app with a giveaway on the weekend. Talk about traffic optimization!1
A while ago I blogged about WALTR, an app for transferring video and audio to your Apple devices from your Mac. It was amazingly fast (and aptly named after a certain Breaking Bad character). WALTR 2 has just been released, and it was worth the wait.
WALTR 2 offers an elegant drag-and-drop interface. No buttons, just a clean display of available devices and a big drop area. Devices can now connect via USB or WiFi. Drop any supported format and it will be instantly converted as needed and added to the appropriate app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. And it’s only non-iTunes app that can transfer any music file (including FLAC audio) into iPod classic, iPod shuffle, iPod Mini with no web connection.
WALTR 2 automatically recognizes the format and encoding of any files you drop on it, handling them appropriately. Speaking of supported formats, WALTR 2 can now handle ePUB and PDF books, in addition to the dozens of audio and video formats it supports (including video formats such as MKV, AVI, MP4, MOV, MPEG, m2ts, 3GP, WMV, H264, H265, audio formats like MP3, FLAC, APE, ALAC, AAC, AIFF, WAV, WMA, OGG, OGA, WV, TTA, DFF, and more). It even handles ringtones, and removes the 30 second limit, allowing you to use entire songs just by renaming the file.
The conversion is insanely fast, lossless formats like FLAC audio can be maintained in iTunes, and you can easily add 4K video to your device’s collection.
Here’s a video from Softorino of WALTR 2 in action:
A lifetime license for WALTR 2 runs $39.95 USD. Eligible users can upgrade for $19.95 USD. And for three lucky readers, I have some codes to give away ($39.95 value). Just add a name and email address below, and I’ll draw winners randomly on Wednesday, Nov 2nd, at 12pm CDT.
Sorry, this giveaway has ended.
