The response to Infuse 3 has been simply amazing, and today we've got a quick bug fix release that addresses a handful of minor issues that have come up.
The most noticeable change in this version relates to how past Pro purchases are handled. Pro features from Infuse 2 are transferred automatically when upgrading to Infuse 3, but soon after the release it was clear we didn't do a great job of indicating this within the app. 3.0.1 does this much more effectively, in an effort to avoid any further confusion.
Also included are a number of behind the scenes improvements to help keep everything running smoothly.
What's new in 3.0.1
Better handling of past Pro upgrades
Improved AirPlay performance
Improved audio track selection
Improved reliability when downloading files from some UPnP shares

We've been pretty busy over the past few months working on Infuse 3, and we're super-excited that we are able to share it with you today.
Simply put, Infuse 3 is a massive update. It's been fully optimized for iOS 8, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and adds a bunch of amazing new things including DTS-HD® audio, mophie space pack access, AirStash® streaming, an all-new dark mode, and a host of other niceties that make the whole Infuse experience just that much better.
DTS and DTS-HD audio (finally!)
After working closely with DTS over the past 2 years, we're extremely proud to announce that Infuse is the first and only iOS app in its class to include fully certified DTS® and DTS-HD® audio. Today, every major film studio in the United States uses DTS multi-channel digital sound, and virtually all major Hollywood feature films are released with soundtracks in the DTS format. Infuse + DTS = the richest mobile cinema experience - period.
Get more built-in local storage
Get up to 64GB more storage on your iPhone by adding a mophie space pack. The space pack is the world’s first rechargeable battery case with local built-in storage made for iPhone 5s & iPhone 5, and best of all it now works with Infuse, seamlessly.
Stay entertained on the go
Bring your whole collection of favorite TV shows, HD movies, and home videos on long road trips or flights by streaming from portable Wi-Fi devices like AirStash®, Sandisk Connect, and many others. The extra capacity will ensure you will never be bored again!

For a limited time we're offering a HUGE discount to those upgrading from older versions. After downloading Infuse 3, just tap the ‘Upgrade to Infuse Pro’ option found in the sidebar menu to unlock all the new features. And hey, if you’re not in a position to grab a copy of Infuse Pro right now, no problem - we're giving you a bunch of the new features anyway. :-)
Note: All existing Pro features from Infuse 2 will transfer to Infuse 3. More details can be found here.
We're so incredibly thankful to people like you who have supported us up to this point. It's a privilege and an honor to be able to touch so many people with the things we create, and without you none of this would be possible. We think you're going to love this new release so I hope you check out everything that's new in Infuse 3.
Also, we'd love to hear from you - so please feel free to post a comment below or drop us a note with any thoughts or questions you may have.
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.
