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.

Ho, ho, ho. Over the past two weeks we've had an amazing response to the release of Infuse 2, and some awesome suggestions from all of you to go along with it. Cult of Mac recently named Infuse 2 “The best media player for iPhone and iPad” and today we're happy to announce Infuse is getting even better in version 2.1, which is available just in time for the holidays.
Infuse 2.1 is overflowing with holiday cheer as now free users can play even more video formats! We've also added some other great new things including an all-new variable speed scrubbing option, support for more subtitles, better translations and a whole bunch of under-the-hood magic to make enjoying your favorite videos on your iPhone or iPad better than ever.
More features for free users
Free users can now join in more of the fun as we've unlocked the ability for them to play a much wider variety of video formats. For those looking to get the most from their videos, Infuse Pro is available as an optional In-App purchase that enables a number of powerful features including network streaming, AirPlay, Dolby Digital mobile surround sound, and more.
Variable speed scrubbing
One of the more noticeable improvements in 2.1 is the addition of an all-new variable speed scrubbing option. Variable speed scrubbing is a great way to fast-forward or rewind with the ultimate level of control. To activate variable speed scrubbing just hold the playback position dot and drag down to get finer control, or up to increase the scrubbing speed.
