Critical update: Infuse & TMDb

Recently TMDb (the service we use for movie info and artwork) made a few changes to their API. These changes are relatively minor, and will not affect how Infuse works, but they did require us to make a few small adjustments in the way Infuse accesses their service.

These changes are included in new updates, for iOS and Apple TV, and will allow things to continue working as they always have.

I encourage you to install these updates ASAP, as some features in the older versions will soon stop working.

Thanks for your continued support!

New goodies in Infuse 2.2.2

Over the past few weeks we've received a ton of awesome feedback from our amazing users, and today we're happy to announce much of that has turned into some great new features which are part of Infuse 2.2.2. Here's the scoop on what's new.

Import subtitles from other apps

Now in addition to syncing your own subtitles, or streaming them from another device you can import them into Infuse from emails, Dropbox, Skydrive, and pretty much any other file sharing app. It doesn't stop there. Infuse will let you select which subtitle goes with which video...so there are no special file naming requirements to worry about.

New gesture controls

You asked, and we listened. Infuse now supports a handful of new gesture controls. Double tap to play/pause, swipe up/down on the right side of the screen to control volume and swipe up/down on the left side to control brightness. And as before, you can swipe left/right anywhere on the screen to skip backwards or forwards 30 seconds.
