Onward to 2018 + New Pricing Options

As 2017 wraps up, I wanted to take a moment to reflect back on some of the milestones we've hit in the past year, and share some info on two new pricing options for Infuse Pro we're introducing today, along with an awesome upgrade special for those still using old versions.

A record number of feature updates

In the past year, we have shipped a total of 21 update for Infuse on iOS and Apple TV, with over 50 new features, and hundreds of other improvements and fixes. That's nearly one update every 2 weeks, and over double the number of updates we had in the previous year!

Here are a few highlights

  • All-new, iOS 11 inspired design
  • Support for new devices (iPhone X, iPad Pro, Apple TV 4K, etc...)
  • 4K HEVC/HDR video support
  • Frame rate & dynamic range matching (ie - super smooth playback)
  • Library view on iOS
  • Movie collections
  • Super-fast search
  • UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD file support
  • New subtitles engine
  • Revamped high-performance playback core
  • Parental Controls
  • And so much more! (full list)

New, flexible pricing options

Last year we introduced an all-new Infuse Pro Yearly subscription option. This is a great way to experience Infuse, as it allows you to unlock everything the app has to offer, AND have access to future updates and features. All upgrades are automatic with no additional costs - even when major releases like v6, v7, etc... are ultimately rolled out.

Since then, we have listened intently to your feedback, and understand one size does not necessarily fit all. For this reason, we're introducing new Monthly and Lifetime license options!

A Monthly subscription is the most cost-effective way to get started using Infuse Pro, and since it's available on a month-to-month basis is also the most flexible.

A Lifetime license gives you all the great benefits of a subscription (access to all features, continual updates, great support, etc...) but with a one-time fee instead of a subscription.

Special pricing for upgraders and switchers

For those interested in upgrading from an older version or switching over to a lifetime license we've made special pricing available for all current Pro users (v3 and later). Details on how to take advantage of this can be found here.

If you're a current Pro subscriber, then just sit back and enjoy. We're not trying to sell you anything, or convince you to upgrade. Your existing subscription price is the lowest we've ever offered, is locked in for life, and will never increase. You'll also continue to receive great new features and improvements in future updates.

Much to come in 2018...

We're working hard to keep the feature train rolling on into the next year, and have some awesome new additions in store so be sure to keep an eye out for updates coming your way soon!

As always, we love hearing from you - so please feel free to post a comment below or drop us a note with any thoughts or questions you may have.

Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to you and yours. 🎄🎅

Infuse, ATV 4K, and iPhone X - oh my!

Some pretty amazing new things were announced today in Cupertino - Apple TV 4K, iPhone 8, iPhone X, and more! These new devices look fantastic, and we can't wait to get our hands on them to see what they can really do.

So what's new?

Among other things, the new Apple TV 4K and iPhone X will both support 4K resolution, HEVC video, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dolby Vision.

According to Apple...

“4K gives you a crisper picture using four times more pixels than standard HD. High Dynamic Range (HDR) delivers brighter, more realistic colors and greater detail. From the hottest new movie to your favorite TV show, everything is more lifelike than ever.”
