Overview of WALTR PRO Features

WALTR PRO will do the dirty work of picking up the best format and settings for your movie to play natively on iPad or iPhone:

  • AVI to MP4 conversion will be almost instantaneous thanks to our new technology.

  • Convert AVI videos to native MP4 formats for iPad, iPhone & iPod via WIFi (experimental)

  • You transfer put all the hottest music into the legacy iPods, starting from iPod Classic released 15 years ago

  • Capable to convert majority of video formats, etc, including AVI, MP4, MOV, MKV and upload them straight into your iPad or iPhone.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. WALTR PRO can do so MUCH MORE:

  • WALTR PRO adds support for ePUB & PDF files and sends them directly to your iBooks app

  • Because of built-in smart recognition technology your audiobooks in M4B go to your iBooks app just the same

It takes 17 seconds to download WALTR and take the suck out of converting AVI to MP4 on Mac or Windows for proper playback on iPad.

It can also transfer .mkv to iPad or iPhone without having to convert the files before-hand, and many other formats not native to the iPad or iPhone, but one of the most useful features is that your can play MKV on iPad straight from your native Videos app. This makes it incredibly easy to transfer media files from your Mac/PC to the iPad.

In fact, a lot of high definition videos downloaded in the internet are wrapped up in AVI containers. And they may play on Windows or Mac computers by means of a media player or Quicktime. But you’ll certainly stumble if there’s a need to attempt to import them to iTunes for easy syncing.

How to Put AVI on iPad Wirelessly

Though it’s still experimental, WALTR PRO makes it possible to put AVI movies on iPhone/iPad over the air. Ironically, to enable WIFI sync, you still have to connect your device with the help of a cable.

Then in the bottom right corner, click on gear. You’ll see a pop-up window right there, so check ‘Enable WIFI Connectivity’ and they you may unplug your iPhone or iPad.

Once your device is connected to the same WiFi network, WALTR PRO will see & recognize it at once. In addition, the transferring speed will stay as fast as always.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, iTunes is really picky about the type of formats may be imported into it. And in fact, only several media formats are supported by iTunes, including MP4 and MOV.

That means you will need to convert AVI to MP4 or to other iTunes-compatible formats for syncing across multiple devices easily. BUT, do you really need this when it’s 2023?

We want you to try a hassle-free way to put a high-quality movie that is in AVI format without worrying about 3rd party software. Forget worrying about how to convert AVI files to MP4 just to get them to play on your iPad!

What if there was an app that lets you sync AVI to iPad directly using a Mac or Windows – WITHOUT converting .avi files to compatible apple format. There is… and the name of this app is WALTR.
