Skyfire Flash to HTML5 iPad App Now Available

by on December 23rd, 2010

The Skyfire iPhone app was a huge hit in the App Store. It enabled iOS users to watch Flash videos on your iPhone and iPod touch. The Skyfire team mentioned that an iPad version of the app would be coming soon. That day is today as the iPad app is now live!

Description:

WHAT IS SKYFIRE?

Finally on the iPad! Skyfire is the browser that not only allows you to view Flash Videos on iOS, but provides as well the best integration of social features for a quicker, more informative and most of all fun internet experience.

FEATURES:

• Play millions of Flash videos – everyday, with no limits!
• All-new ‘Skybar’ toolbar gives one-click access to video and related content
• Stay in touch: Unique Facebook and Twitter ‘Quickview’ allows you to see your wall and feeds with one click.
• Universal ‘Like’: Like ANY page on the internet, with one click.
• Fireplace: See only the links shared by Friends. Why? Filter what friends did from what friends shared (which is a great starting point for browsing)
• Popular: See what Friends and the Facebook community have to say about the site you are currently exploring
• Be informed: Quick access to GReader feeds
• Be social: Share via Facebook and Twitter
• Share to more services including GReader, Instapaper, Pinboard and Read It Later
• Standard browser elements: Tabs, search, sharing, bookmarks, history, etc.
• Full screen option for maximum use of screen real-estate – with scroll to top
• ‘Desktop’ option loads pages as on a desktop browser, giving more flexibility in accessing web sites
• Private Browsing option: Browse with no history and cookies left behind

The Skyfire iPhone app was overwhelmed upon launch. If you REALLY need to watch Flash videos on the iPad, then maybe this app is for you. However, $4.99 is a bit steep in my opinion.

Skyfire retails for $4.99. Click here to download it in the App Store.
