Infuse 2.3 for iOS (teaser 007)

Well regarded jailbreak developer FireCore today put an end to speculation, confirming that its speedy, powerful and versatile media player for iOS devices, Infuse, will be coming to the 4th generation Apple TV.

“We’re now starting to see a beautiful bright light at the end of the tunnel, and that light is coming into form as Infuse 4 for Apple TV,” reads the post. Infuse 4 for Apple TV will be a free update for all current Infuse Pro users.

Users who have been accepted into the beta should receive their email invitations today. FireCore called the interest for the Infuse beta “truly staggering”. The Apple TV edition of Infuse will be arriving as an update to the existing iOS app “very soon.”

FireCore did not share screenshots nor did they provide more detail, but my sources tell me the app takes full advantage of the A8 chip to transcode foreign media types into an iOS-friendly format on-the-fly, with full support for subtitles and more.

FireCore is the same team that created the aTV Flash Black software that lets owners of older Apple TV models run additional services that turn their device into a fully-featured multimedia center for the living room.

In the meantime, check out Infuse for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad by downloading the freemium app for free from the App Store. If you decide you like Infuse, you can upgrade to the Pro edition via a one-time $9.99 In-App Purchase.

Not only do Infuse Pro users get treated to a free upgrade to the Apple TV app, but also enjoy features like an expanded list of supported video formats, including Dolby Digital Plus (AC3/E-AC3), DTS and DTS-HD mobile surround sound, streaming over AirPlay and Google Cast, 2-way trakt.tv sync of watched history and playback progress and the ability to play videos in the background, even while the device is locked.

      I totally agree with you. And these are still the first apps coming to the ATV4, can’t wait for what’s to come. It’s not perfect, but I also am not regretting my purchase. I actually quite like it. 🙂

    LOL stupid isheep. Paid for the app and also paid for the movies.

    • Chris

      What exactly is your point? Millions of people in all ecosystems pay for apps and movies, Apple isn’t the only company we make purchases from.

  • and whats the benefits of this app?

    Don’t get me wrong. I love iPhones and have always owned one but the Nvidia Shield TV shits all of the new Apple TV. The Shield TV can do all of this and a lot more. It’s much better value and I find the Apple TV very disappointing.

    You post like a fcking little girl with your emoticon. Android TV box already out sold your precious POS AppleTV sheep. Stupid ass sheep will have to buy another AppleTV next year to watch 4K. Then another one for just 3D touch. How’s your App Store and Siri, Apple Music and working for your AppleTV 2 and 3 sheep? LMFAO! Baaah!!!
