WALTR: amphetamines for your video collection (+giveaway)

[Tweet : ADN : nvALT]

Softorino, the developers who brought you iBetterCharge (mentioned here a little bit ago), have just released a supercharged tool for putting your video collection on your iOS devices. It’s called WALTR, and if you collect videos in any iTunes-incompatible formats, you’ll love it.

WALTR can upload videos in MKV, AVI, MP4, FLAC, and more formats (the promo claims “any format ever created,” but I don’t have time to test that…) directly to your iPhone or iPad. You get native playback in all of your video apps, with no special software or converters required. You just plug your iOS device into USB and drag videos (or audio, too) onto WALTR’s dropzone. It crunches them and uploads them to your device in one step. You don’t even need to open iTunes.

Honestly, I don’t collect a lot of video files. When I watch movies, they’re usually streaming, or I just download them in iTunes-supported formats. I had to go out of my way to test WALTR, but the results were pretty astounding. Here’s a video from the developers showing an MKV version of Monty Python and The Holy Grail uploading to an iPhone 6 in under 60 seconds. The video is instantly available in Apple’s “Videos” app. Impressive.

You can download WALTR for free and try it out. A lifetime license is going to cost $29.95 US. There’s a special launch price for one week, though, and you can pick it up for $14.95 US right now. I also happen to have five codes to give away, so if this is something you’ve been wanting, enter a name and email below.

The giveaway is open to everyone (the app is non-App Store, so you can use it even in places without MAS access). The Giveaway Robot will draw five random winners on Friday, November 21st, at 12pm Central. That way, if you don’t win, you’ll still have a chance to grab it at the intro price. See? I’m always looking out for you.

Sorry, this giveaway has ended.

That was so many posts in one day. I should get a medal. Or a cookie.
