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.

  • Orientation lock
  • Added retina artwork for browser upload screen
  • New gesture controls
    • 2 finger tap to play/pause video

Infuse 2.2

Infuse 2 for iOS has only been out for two months, but we've been working almost non-stop since then to get even more features into your hands.

The result is Infuse 2.2, which is a HUGE update and is packed with goodies including the ability to download files, browse remote shares with artwork and movie info, all-new list view option, volume boost, streaming improvements, and much, much more!

More details on everything that's included in Infuse 2.2 can be found below.

Download from network shares

Filling your device with video goodness is now easier than ever, as in addition to just streaming files, you can download them directly from other devices to play later while you're on the go.

Library view for remote files

Now streamed files can be part of the beautiful Infuse interface as they're now displayed along with full movie info, artwork, progress indicators and more! Mmmm, retina fanart.

List view option

For those that would prefer to skip the theatrics and get straight to business, we've added a concise list view option just for you. This new view option displays all the pertinent info on the home screen, and playback can be started with just a single tap. Additional options can be accessed by swiping left on a movie's title.

Full list of changes
