Skyfire Browser for iPhone Lets You View Flash Videos

iOS owners now have the option to view Flash videos on websites despite Apple’s refusal to support Flash in their mobile devices, thanks to Skyfire Labs’ Skyfire browser. The browser doesn’t actually play Flash videos straight off – videos are first transcoded on Skyfire Labs’ servers, then sent back to the browser for viewing.

The app’s popularity recently exploded, causing Skyfire’s servers to be overwhelmed. The company had no choice but to temporarily declare the browser as “Sold Out”. It’s now back on the App Store, being sold in batches.

Aside from transcoding Flash videos, the browser also features one-click sharing to Facebook and Twitter, private browsing, and user agent switching. It’s currently available at the App Store for only $2.99 (USD). As I said, the app is being sold in batches, so if it’s not available when you go to the App Store, just check back later. The browser is also available in other platforms, including Android and Windows Mobile. Check out Skyfire Labs’ website for more info.
