Infuse 3.4 - Folders, Folders, Folders

We've been hard at work to make watching videos in Infuse even better and more enjoyable. In version 3.4 we've added a handful of exciting improvements including new organization options, background audio playback, and more!

Organize videos using folders

An all-new folders option provides the ability to manually organize videos to your heart's content. You can even set custom artwork for each, allowing everything to mesh seamlessly with the native Infuse layout.

Folders

Background (audio) playback

Background playback allows for a video's audio to continue playing in the background while using other apps or while your device is locked. This is handy when leaving the app to respond to a quick email, or for playing a continuous stream of music videos. Background playback requires Infuse Pro.

Background audio

And more...

  • Landscape lock setting for iPhone
  • File size is now shown when browsing shares through Add Files screen
  • Callback URLs for streaming from other apps
  • Added Turkish translation - thanks Semih!
  • Delete videos from ticket view
  • Option to show filenames instead of fetched names
  • Improved speed of video artwork caching and loading
  • Improved speed and stability of SMB connections
  • Resolved issues with some direct URLs not working
  • Auto-empty URL field after a link is saved
  • Other minor improvements and fixes

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

  • Download files from network shares (for offline playback)
  • Browse network shares with rich cover art and video info
  • List view option
  • Volume boost setting
  • Option to disable metadata fetching (good for home videos)

Infuse 2 now available

Today we're very excited to announce the release of Infuse 2 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Infuse 2 introduces a stunning, all-new design for iOS 7 and also features the ability to stream videos from other devices such as a Mac, PC, or network drive.

All-new design

When we first designed Infuse, we had a few simple goals...make a solid app that looks great and is fun to use. With Infuse 2 we've stuck to that same mantra, while at the same time updating the look and feel with a more modern iOS 7 inspired style. What we ended up with is a fantastic balance between clean lines, content, and personality.

Concise video details are surrounded by rich movie artwork that now run from edge to edge. Set behind the ticket is a dynamic background that changes color depending on which title is currently being displayed. Infuse 2 is an app that brings your content to life, and we think its' the most beautiful thing we've ever designed.

Stream from other devices

By far the most requested feature we've had is to be able to stream content without syncing, and with Infuse 2 that dream is now a reality. Infuse 2 empowers you to browse and play content on almost any Mac, PC, or network drive without having to wait for files to transfer or sync. Naturally, we've also made it so features such as AirPlay, subtitles, and trakt scrobbling work while streaming as well.

Infuse 2 is free!

We think Infuse 2 is pretty amazing, and want to allow as many people as possible to enjoy it...so we're making Infuse 2 a FREE app. With the free version you can play everything the normal iOS player can, plus use additional features like drag-and-drop browser uploads, on-the-fly subtitle downloads, trakt scrobbling, and more. No ads, no gimmicks...just a great free app.

Infuse Pro

For those looking to get the most from their videos, we're introducing a new premium option dubbed Infuse Pro. Infuse Pro adds the ability to play additional video formats, stream from network devices, enable multi-format AirPlay and much, much more.

Infuse Pro is one-time In-App purchase, and is now available at an introductory price of $4.99. However as a way of saying thanks, Infuse Pro is a FREE upgrade for those who purchased Infuse 1.5 or earlier.

Note: Current Infuse users should tap the 'Restore' button instead of 'Upgrade Now' on the Infuse Pro upgrade prompt.

Infuse 2 is now available as a FREE download in the App Store.

Enjoy. Smile
