Finally! CNN Money reports today that iPad and iPhone owners will be able to get Flash on their devices from 9 a.m. ET this Thursday, albeit via a paid app. According to CNN Money, a startup company called Skyfire has devised a browser, which will cost $2.99, and which renders and translates a Flash video on a web page to HTML5. The Skyfire browser will then show a thumbnail that you can click on to stream the video from its servers, which will be doing all the donkey work.
This is just fantastic news for all of us who are frustrated by not being able to watch all the videos we want to online, but still a little bit annoying that weâ€™ll have to pay for the privilege, and that Apple didnâ€™t get it sorted themselves first. Donâ€™t get too excited though if you think this will mean you can now watch Flash videos on Hulu, as CNN Money says that Hulu has stopped Skyfire from downloading its videos.
