@paul_shuteyev Thanks for the feedback, Paul! Yeah, we wanted to release it for a long time as well :) It feels good to finally show it to the world.

First off – @nivo0o0 thanks for hunting :) I'm Josh, one of the guys behind all Softorino products ...and the person you see in our videos ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Before I move further, you should know that WALTR 2 is available for both, macOS & Windows. OK, so here's the deal– Two years ago, we launched WALTR to free users of iTunes and allow pushing any music or video into iOS devices via seamless drag & drop. Today I’m happy to let you know that we’re finally ready to unveil the long-awaited WALTR 2. It evolved into a universal (& magic) drop area for pushing Any content into any Apple device. Now, you can wirelessly drag-and-drop any Music, Ringtones, Videos, PDF & ePUB files onto your iPhone, iPad or iPod without iTunes. What's new & matters: - Automatic metadata recognition - Wi-Fi transfer support (beta) - PDF, ePUB support - Non-iOS device support (20+ Legacy iPods, including iPod Classic from 2001) And btw, for all you music & movie lovers – you can drop MKV, AVI, FLAC files and WALTR 2 will eat it. As a result, you'll get all of your content on the device in the best quality possible. I.e. FLAC turns into ALAC with no quality loss :D So Product Hunters, go ahead and try it – the app has a 1 day trial without any restrictions. For anyone who wants to upgrade from the original WALTR – good news, you can just go to softorino.com/store/w2 and get your exclusive upgrade pricing :) If you have ANY questions, suggestions or cool feature requests – let me know and I'll try to answer ASAP!

@joshsoftorino @nivo0o0 Great solution and super excited to try Waltr 2 out. Very useful for managing file and stuff in general across multiple devices in the family.

@joshsoftorino so glad I got a chance to try this! I love how smoothly it works -- and finally gives me a reason to use the default iOS Video and Music apps. The ability to just drag media files onto the phone is of the big conveniences I use regularly on my Galaxy 7 Edge, and saw it as a direct limitation in the iPhone... but no longer 🙏 WALTR: Highly recommended, and it goes without saying how wonderful it is to not have to use iTunes...

@nivo0o0 Thanks, Niv!! Perfect scenario ;) Once again, thanks for hunting it.

Way to go Josh. Great product, you're exactly solving what used to be my barrier to switch to an iPhone !

@hicham_amine Thank you so much, Hicham! Let us know if you have any cool feature suggestions.
Mohammed Erraysy
I'm not an iOS user yet, I think this can be a not bad encourager to do it asap, thanks guys.
Josh Brown
Maker
@merraysy With the release of WALTR 2, yes – its definitely the best time to switch to iOS :)

@rueter Thanks for the feedback, Steven :)

I think everyone secretly wishes Apple would just create a "Device Manager" for Mac and Windows, but I'm sure it's partially hinged on the release of a standalone Apple Music app for Windows and the sunsetting of iTunes in general.
Victor V. Basyul
@benguild Apple has a lot of things going on lately. Unfortunately, iTunes does not quite look like one of them. Therefore, we decided to help ourselves & all the music and movie lovers out there by releasing our brand new WALTR 2 app. :)
Anthony Stylianou
This is Amazing! In terms of growing your user base, is there a particular demographic you are going after?
Josh Brown
Maker
@anthony_stylianou Thanks for the feedback. Good question. In general, we're going after all Apple device owners from the globe. There are 1 billion Apple devices in active use around the world. Which is pretty much 1 Apple device for every 7.125 humans on Earth. But the problem is that there's no obvious way of pushing desired content to these devices and seamlessly enjoy them (as expected from Apple products). And this is where WALTR 2 comes in ;) Of course, WALTR 2 is perfect for those who are migrating from an android device or simply cannot get iTunes to work as expected from Apple. As for content wise – mostly, it's countries that don't have streaming as accessible as it is in U.S., Canada, UK.

Josh Brown

@frassmith It's out already. We sent out your early-access invitation on October 28th. I've checked the database for your email and it was sent to you. Can you please check your inbox, just to confirm.
Fraser Smith
@joshsoftorino Ok, thanks. maybe it went to spam.
Yura Godunok
Wow! It's Amazing. I think Steve would approve of that.
Victor V. Basyul
@yura_godunok Thanks for your Amazing feedback :) At Softorino, we believe that everything genius should be simple to use & have a lot of horse power "under the hood" — that's what WALTR 2 is all about.
Ivan Pasichnyk
Looks too good to be true! Could you also send Flac tracks into iPod shuffles??
Josh Brown
Maker
@ivan_pasichnyk Yes, all iPod shuffles are supported and you can drop any music format into it. It will be converted on the fly if needed. 🙏
Sergey Kudryashov
WALTR 2 is a huuuuuge step forward. After all of the feedback and feature requests – I think this time Softorino crafted a perfect product.
Victor V. Basyul
@quser It has been a great journey, indeed! :)
Sergey Kudryashov
@victorbasyul You're the winners!
Wilhem Pujar
Is this promo video for real? 😂 Excellent job at reducing our (Apple) file sharing pains. 🙌🏾
Josh Brown
Maker
@wilhempujar It's for real 😁 And thank you for the excellent feedback ;)
Henno
I've been using airdrop to send myself files wirelessly, then opening them with "File Manager" to watch/listen to them. What does Waltr do differently to that?
Josh Brown
Maker
@h3nno Hi Henno – WALTR 2 is completely different from AirDrop. You can't airdrop songs and movies onto your iOS device without it going to the camera roll. WALTR takes any file and puts it in the native app without any compression or messing with iTunes. You can also transfer books, PDFs, Ringtones (without even trimming them). And most of all – you never have to worry about the file format of the file. If you just have regular MP4 videos or home videos – then sure, you can use AirDrop.
Thomas TomHawk Burningham
Can WALTR backup iPhone notes?
Josh Brown
Maker
@thomas_tomhawk_burningham Hi Thomas, WALTR 2 can only transfer media into the device itself. Not the other way around. But good news – there are tons of apps to export media from an iPhone, probably even here on PH ;)
Ouriel Ohayon
any advantage of using this vs dropbox?
Josh Brown
Maker
@ourielohayon to be honest, I've never tried dropbox for transferring mkv, flac, avi and playing on my iPhone. But I'm pretty confident that experience with WALTR 2 will be much smoother and much more pleasant.
Yaroslav Azhnyuk
That's what iTunes should be. Apple should buy them now.
Victor V. Basyul
@yaroslavazhnyuk right on, Yaroslav! Quoting one of WALTR customers here: "If Apple didn't do it, then WALTR will".
mehran roghani
excellent software (i hate iTunes so much -__- ) but it cant transfer images ,which was a drawback for me :d
Henno
@mehranroghani You can just airdrop images.
mehran roghani
@h3nno i know but it would be more convenient to do it all in one app
Victor V. Basyul
@mehranroghani thank you for the feedback, Mehran! Transferring images is one of the features we already have in mind. :)
mehran roghani
@victorbasyul glad to hear that ,would be waiting for ot ;)
Joshua Dance
Can I add songs to my iPhone that I can play in iTunes?
Josh Brown
Maker
@joshdance do you mean iTunes on your iPhone? Or the Music app with Apple Music? If so, then YES :)
