How to add music to your iPhone without iTunes using WALTR
Transferring music files to your iOS hardware is not for the faint-hearted, let alone for novice users, but I suppose you don't need me to tell you that. Because third-party apps are not permitted to save songs to the music library on your device, the process officially sanctioned by Apple requires syncing your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with the bloated mess that is desktop iTunes.
Thankfully, specialized apps such as Softorino's excellent WALTR 2 let you simply drag and drop media files on WALTR's drop zone and rest assured they'll be transcoded into iOS-friendly formats and saved into appropriate apps. In this brief tutorial, we'll lay out the process of adding music to iPhone without iTunes, using the WALTR app.
WALTR 2 (the app's name is inspired by Walter White from the legendary crime drama series, “Breaking Bad”) accepts audio files encoded in a bunch of different file formats. Aside from iOS-friendly media file types, WALTR 2 features support for content stored as MP3, FLAC, APE, ALAC, AAC, AIFF, WAV, WMA, OGG, OGA, WV, TTA and DFF files.
The app supports songs, audiobooks, ringtones, PDFs, electronic books in the ePUB format and videos (with SRT and AAC subtitle format support) encoded in a bunch of file formats like MKV, AVI and DIVX. WALTR also supports 4K video (Ultra HD, 2160P) at up to 60 frames per second.
WALTR's automatic metadata recognition enriches your music with official song, track and album names, album artwork, and so forth as if they were bough from iTunes. And with automatic content recognition, it fills in any metadata missing from your music files before adapting the file format for your device.
