Skyfire for iPhone is coming on Thursday and it will be available to download for $2.99 from the App Store. The same browser is already available for Symbian and Android mobile phones.
The important feature that distinguishes Skyfire browser from other smartphone browsers is the capability to convert the flash based content into HTML 5 through Skyfire servers.
“Like the Android version, Skyfire for iOS isn’t a standalone application, but rather a tool that works on top of Apple’s Safari Web browser,” the report said. “As a result, the company said the app was given a rather rigorous review from Apple, but it was approved in less than two months. Apple did not return a request for comment on why it approved Skyfire for its App Store.”
As you know iPhone doesn’t support flash, so this browser will be warmly welcomed to watch the videos coded for Flash Player. However it will not work for flash-based games and popular streaming site Hulu.
