Yes indeed now you can play flash websites, videos on your iPhone using Skyfire!! Unfortunately due to a huge surge of users which resulted in servers crash and the app was disappeared after 5 hours of its launch. But now Skyfire is back in the app store at a price tag of $2.99. Of course this app is the top grossing in the app store now! Let’s have a look on the app to see if flash videos and sites are ready for prime time on the iPhone.
First of all, Skyfire is not a complete video player instead its an awesome web browser. The layout of this app resembles the mobile safari browser and the added functions like videos, explore and share are great when you clicks the home button.
Right away to the hot spot, is this app supports flash? Yes, it supports flash websites and videos with certain limitations. Whenever you view a page with flash the app tends to display a small screen which pop ups from the “Videos” option. Tapping on this screen takes you to convert and buffer the video and finally you can watch the flash video .
Another feature that I found useful in Skyfire is the “Explore” button. Tapping on this will find all related media and content within the page you are browsing and displays it neatly. Alternatively you can enter a search term and get the results.
Social media integration also keeps this app cool where you can shout about your latest internet discovery from your phone using your preferred social network like Facebook and Twitter. Especially the Twitter integration automatically allows shorten URLs. You can also compose your thoughts straight away from this app through email.
