Just 3 steps - and you can download movies to iPhone without even using iTunes. Compatible with Mac & Windows.

Apple devices are amazing for movie playback. But it’s hella trouble to download movies from PC to iPhone. You might have tons of awesome movies on your computer, but if you’d like to save one of them to iPhone or iPad you need to go through quite a hassle.

The usual tool to move your files between devices is iTunes (which of course is not that user-friendly).

Sure thing, iTunes is the application designed to download movies to iPhone as well as any other file type. It’s meant for this. But the truth is, iTunes may not always work as it’s supposed.

Beginning with the fact that it simply may not always recognize your device or it has all those format impediments like it can’t sync AVI or MKV movies.

Step 2. Plug-in your iPhone

Before you download movies from PC to iPhone, you will need to connect it to your computer.

WALTR 2 is able to work via WiFi, but to enable the feature you have to connect your iPhone to the computer first and then click on the gear in the bottom right corner and select ‘Enable WiFi Connectivity’ there.

This feature is still working experimentally, but very soon it’ll be more than stable.

WALTR 2 also shows you the free storage left on your iOS device.

Step 3. Drag your movie into the drop-zone

The blue progress bar will keep you updated on the whole transferring duration. In this case, I’m putting 3GB episode of ‘Shameless’ TV Show on an iPhone, WALTR will save the movie like that to iPhone in no more than a minute.

More than this, it’s an MKV (Matroska) format, and as you know iPhones usually aren’t able to play back those. In this case, WALTR 2 will convert MKV to MOV on-the-fly.

Next step is simply to go into your TV. app and play it back!

WALTR fully supports the following formats:

Video: MKV & AVI (includes subtitle support: .srt & .ass), MOV, MP4, M4V, 3GP, WMV;


*Experimental support: FLV, M2TS, TS.

When WALTR transferred the file (and it usually just freakin’ fast), simply proceed to the next step!

There are simply no other solutions, that can do the same as WALTR 2. There are literally no other apps that are able to convert MKV to MOV this fast.
