Infuse 2 is being redesigned from the ground up to be sleeker, faster, and easier to use, and will include a fresh new iOS 7 inspired look. We're also adding a number of exciting all-new 'Pro' features, including the much-anticipated ability to browse and play videos stored on other devices such as a Mac, PC or NAS.
In Infuse 2 every pixel has been redrawn, and every bit of code freshened up to ensure it works seamlessly with iOS 7. In essence, Infuse 2 is an entirely new app. Even with all of this, we've decided to thank all of you and make Infuse 2, including all the Pro features, a FREE update!
Free update, really? Yes, really...we love you. ;-)
Will Infuse 2 run on my device? Infuse 2 will work on any iDevice running iOS 7 or later.
When is it coming? Infuse 2 will be available this fall.
I haven't purchased Infuse yet, can I get in on this? Of course. Anyone who downloads Infuse prior to the release of version 2 can get the Pro features for free.
What do I need to do? *Important* In order to unlock the Pro features coming in Infuse 2, all you need to do is open the 1.5 version (before the release of version 2) and take advantage of the free In-App purchase option that appears.
That's it. All the Pro-level goodies coming in Infuse 2 will be yours to keep, for free.
Infuse 1.5 update - yay!
With all that said, we're releasing Infuse 1.5 today. This update includes some great new features, and a few fixes that hopefully makes the wait for Infuse 2 a little less painful.
Here's what's new...
TV show groups
Nobody likes a messy library, and in 1.5 Infuse cleans house by grouping all TV shows together by season. Each season will appear with its own poster on the home screen, and when tapped reveals a ticket with a new episode selection bar.
Getting around videos is now easier than ever with swipe gesture controls. Swipe once to seek forward or back 30 seconds, or use multiple swipes to a quickly seek a few minutes or more into a video. A dedicated 30 second rewind button has also been added to the playback bar.
The little things
Also included in 1.5 are a few small enhancements including a subtitles toggle switch, saved playback settings, and other performance improvements and fixes. We're always looking for ways to improve, so feel free to chime-in with your comments below or drop us a quick note.
In early August Infuse got a healthy dose of AirPlay streaming, and since then we've been listening intently to all of you who have been using it to see how we could make it even better.
Today we're happy to release Infuse 1.4 that includes quite a few goodies that mainly revolve around improved AirPlay, performance, and efficiency.
Here's the whole scoop on what's new in 1.4...
Subtitles over AirPlay
We've taken our AirPlay integration a step further by adding the ability to send subtitles along with video when using AirPlay. Now, with just a few taps you can add subtitles from OpenSubtitles to videos and stream them to your TV. You can even pick and choose from the available subtitles right on the Apple TV! It just works.
AirPlay in the background
Infuse now does a much better job of allowing you to move between apps while playing videos. Not only is this just very handy, it also allows for improved battery life while streaming over AirPlay.
Performance, speed, efficiency
Last but not least, we've refined and improved many aspects of Infuse to provide the best possible experience. The improvements included in 1.4 have led to smoother and crisper videos, better battery life, and a 30% reduction in the app size itself.
We all go through life with good days, and bad days...then there are days that are just frickin' amazing! Today is one of those days because we just gave Infuse for iOS a huge, free 1.3 update.
What's new you ask? Well, let me tell you...
Infuse has always been great at playing videos on an iPhone or iPad, and now it's great at playing videos on the big screen as well. Yup! Infuse now features a truly awesome AirPlay option that streams a ton of different video types including MKV, MP4, M4V, AVI, and a few others. The more eclectic formats are supported as well by way of AirPlay Mirroring.
In a nutshell, just hit the AirPlay button and Infuse will take care of the rest.
Searching for a sync cable to get videos into Infuse is a now a thing of the past. We've added direct Wi-Fi transfers that allows for dragging and dropping videos into Infuse through a plain ol' web browser. Geek note: You can also use an FTP app (like Cyberduck or Transmit) instead of a browser.
Keep it social
We've baked in some extra trakt goodness that makes it easy to post ratings and 'shouts' to trakt right from within Infuse. You can even post what you're watching to Facebook or Twitter, if you prefer. Don't worry, if you're not the social type, all sharing features are 100% optional.
Many other improvements and fixes
On top of all this, we've also included a huge pile of performance improvements and bug fixes to keep things running smoothly.
