Windows/Mac: If you want to move a file, whether it’s a video, ebook, ringtone or whatever else, from your computer to your iPhone, you’d usually need to use iTunes. Waltr allows you to skip iTunes, or skip wires altogether.
At its core, Waltr is a simple file manager where you can send any file type over to your iOS device wirelessly. It has some clever extra tricks too, like automatic file conversion for audio and video, and content recognition that brings along metadata. It works like you’d expect, and eliminates iTunes from the equation from file transfers, which alone makes it worth a look. That said, when you first launch the app, there’s an annoying autoplaying instruction video, though thankfully you’ll only have to sit through it once. Waltr’s also a bit pricey at $US39.95 ($52), but thankfully there’s a 24-hour demo version you can check out to decide if it’s worth it for you.
