Infuse 4 for iOS has arrived!
At first glance, Infuse 4 may look like something you've seen before, but that is where the similarities end. We've gone deep under the hood to make significant changes in just about every area. The end result is an all-new playback core, built on modern frameworks, that take full advantage of Apple's latest hardware. Naturally, we've also added a few other goodies as well...read on for more details.
Our new high-performance playback core has been optimized to work great with newer devices, including the iPad Pro. We've also fine-tuned things for speedy browsing, great battery life, and silky-smooth playback of videos with resolutions up to 4K.
Accessibility now comes standard
Robust support for VoiceOver is now baked right into Infuse. This allows our blind or low-vision users to easily enjoy everything Infuse has to offer. All features, including browsing shares, reading movie titles/descriptions, adjusting settings, and controlling playback are available.
Custom favorite artwork
Make Infuse your own by adding custom artwork for favorites and folders. These will appear right on the home screen when opening Infuse - ensuring your folders look just as good as the videos inside them.
Optimized for iPad Pro
Pro devices demand Pro apps, and we've optimized everything to look and function great on the highest resolution device in the iOS family. We've spruced a few things up for other devices as well.
