If your audio and visual files are an uncoordinated mess of formats and players, WALTR can bring some harmony to your life. Using a simple ‘drag & drop’ interface, this market-leading software for Mac and iOS offers you the ability to access your entire music and video collection – whatever the format – through a native iOS app.

Dedicated iDB readers and Apple news followers may remember the developer behind WALTR, Softorino. Last November, we covered an awesome story about Softorino’s discovery that the iPhone 6 can handle 4k video.

But you don’t need an iPhone 6 to use WALTR; it works with iOS5+ and Mac OS X 10.9+ operating systems. As long as you’re running any recent OS, it couldn’t be simpler to transfer media to your your iPad, iPod touch or iPhone.

WALTR works with the following formats:  MP3, FLAC, APE, ALAC, M4R, AAC, AIFF, WAV, WMA, CUE, OGG, WV and TTA.

Even better news for users of MKV, AVI and FLAC files, WALTR claims to be the only media convertor available that enables you to access these natively on your iOS devices.

With an average upload speed of 2gb per minute, even the largest collections should pose no problem. At just $20 – saving $10 on the usual price – with this special deal, you will get a lifetime license, including all updates.

For those out there who need some organization, this deal should be music to your ears. Check out the deal.

    Since we’re talking about music & formats. Could you or someone breakdown which is the best of music quality format to listen to… 320kbps, 250ks, or itunes mastered?

      Hi, . The bitrate of an audio file can be seen as the resolution of the audio. A 320kbps file contains more bits/information than a 256kbps file. most people can’t tell the difference between those two bitrates. however, lower resolution audio takes up less space on your harddrive, but the higher spectrum of the frequencies (hihats, female vocals etc.) can sound quite distorted, in an unpleasant way. in bitrates lower than 256kbps the missing audio information becomes really obvious and the music will sound crappy. sorry for my bad english

    • Format and encoder matter, too. For example, 128kbps AAC encoded by iTunes usually sounds better than 192kbps MP3.
      256kbps AAC iTunes Plus is as near as you can get to lossless (usually over 1mbps), and MP3 is obsolete.
