We are excited to introduce Infuse for iOS, the beautiful new way to enjoy your favorite videos on the go. Infuse bridges the gap between synced content and other media formats and adds in a powerful set of intuitively designed features that make watching videos more enjoyable than ever.
Videos, videos, videos
In addition to playing the content you already have on your iPhone or iPad, Infuse adds support for many other popular media formats such as AVI, MKV, WMV and many others. Now there’s no need to waste precious time converting your files just to play them.
Upgrade to Infuse, and browse through videos in a beautifully designed, visually engaging interface. Infuse automatically keeps everything organized and up-to-date and will download detailed movie info and artwork as needed.
Super easy subtitles
Great content isn’t always available in your favorite language, and tracking down subtitles can be a pain. Infuse changes all that. With just a few taps you can add subtitles in the language of your choice and display them with crisp, retina quality text when you start you movie. Of course if you already have your own subtitles, Infuse can use those as well.
Infuse + trakt = ♥
trakt is a great way to keep a comprehensive history of all tv shows and movies you’ve watched and get recommendations based on which you’ve liked (or disliked). And since Infuse scrobbles everything you watch back to trakt, keeping everything in sync is now easier than ever.
Availability and pricing
Infuse is now available worldwide at an introductory price of $4.99, and can be used on any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 5 or later.
The wait is over, and today we're happy to release updated versions of aTV Flash (black) and Seas0nPass that support the recently released 5.2 (iOS 6.1) Apple TV software. Big thanks goes to the evad3rs for making much of this possible.
Hooray for Bluetooth!
To the delight of many loyal users, Apple officially added support for Bluetooth keyboards in Apple TV 5.2, and we've been working non-stop to provide a seamless experience in aTV Flash (black) 2.2. Now features such as web browsing, media playback, library browsing and more can all be controlled using a wireless keyboard. Don't worry, the normal remote will still work as well.

Happy New Year! To help start 2013 off on the right foot we've got a fresh new version of aTV Flash (black) for your enjoyment. In this new version we've worked to included a number of highly requested features as well as a slew of other improvements, fixes and all-around goodness. We're also working on some other really great things that will be available in the coming weeks/months, but for now a few highlights of what's included in the 2.1 update can be found below.
TV Show Playlists
Now it's easier than ever to pick up where you left off with your favorite show. After you decide which show to watch, simply hold the center button and choose the playlist option. That's it! You'll be taken to the first unwatched episode, and will continue playing until your run out of shows or your eyes turn into puffy white marshmallows, whichever comes first.
Super Customizable Favorites
Favorites provide a handy way to get to what you want as quickly as possible. They're displayed right in the main menu, and just got a whole lot better in version 2.1. Need a quick link to season 4 of The Office? Check. How about having a list of celebration videos that contain the word word birthday? Done. With these new options for Favorites there's really no limit on what you can do.
