Softorino's WALTR app for the Mac, which is designed to make it easy to upload and convert any music or video file to an iPad or iPhone, is getting its first major update today following its November 2014 release.

WALTR will help you drag and drop a wide variety of media files onto your iPad or iPhone, and it supports many different file types, including MP4, AVI, CUE, WMA, M4R, AAC, M4V, M4A, FLAC, ALAC, and MKV. Today's update brings additional formats, full subtitle support, an updated design, and more.

New formats that are now supported include LV, M2TS, TS (experimental), DV, MPG, MPEG, MPE, MPEG(old types), and WEBM for video and M4B, AIFF, WAV, OGG, OGA, WV, TTA, and DFF for audio. It also supports subtitles in .SRT and .ASS formats.

For those unfamiliar with WALTR, it's incredibly easy to use. You simply plug in your iPad or iPhone to your Mac, turn off iTunes, and drag any media file onto the Mac app. From there, the file is converted and uploaded to your device within minutes, plus it's placed into the proper Music or Video app.

Another competition only open to US residents - for why?

What part of this competition involves any form of transfer that costs more money to a different country than it does to US-only? This is the age of the internet, for goodness' sake.

'Intricacies of international law' And yet thousands of other websites manage it just fine...

Anyway, WALTR is good software and congrats if you win this because it's worth having.

there are 2 types of people, the ones who call these types of subtitles 'Advanced SubStation Alpha' and the ones that just call it .ASS :D

April 6?

I guess they meant 16th?

Seems like some cool software to have. $30 is a bit steep, but I could see myself paying that much if I ever needed to transfer a lot of files (enough files that it would take me an hour or more of handholding iTunes through the process.)

Sorry about that, that text was taken from another giveaway and I missed a date update. I'll send emails to winners on April 13, and codes shortly after.
