    [ame=]YouTube - Watch FLASH Videos On Your iPhone, iPod Touch, And iPad - iOS Vlog 180[/ame]​

    Yesterday, I posted a video on Skyfire 2.0 coming to iOS devices on November 4th. Well, it released today instead. Skyfire allows you to play Flash videos on your iOS device by sending the Flash content to the Skyfire servers, then they send it back, almost instantly, to play in HTML five. The buffer for each video, depending on the size, isn't too bad. Videos under five minutes should load within 20-30 seconds. This streams the video right on your device in pretty damn good quality.

    Check it out in the App Store for $2.99 under the name Skyfire.

    Or Click Here:
    Skyfire Web Browser for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

      I don't think they made this for the iPad, yet.

      Skyfire less than stellar

      At least for me, my 1st experience as been awful.
      1st I learn that Skyfire doesn't do Youtube though
      iPad usually can.

      I quickly got a notice from Google that someone had
      accessed my Gmail account from New York. I take it
      they're talking about Skyfire's using my account info
      to access my Gmail account ?

      I try to access Kim Komando video's and get messages
      that Gmail is blocking Popups (and I even disabled that)
      to no avail.

      I know you're probably not the Guru here -- just wanted
      to register my frustration that many might have trying
      to make use of Skyfire

      Just joined Skyfire on Facebook. One disgruntled user said the reviews are saying it doesn't work for iPad. Do you agree or disagree?

      Doesn't matter. It's no longer available from the App Store.:(

      Skyfire got destroyed......Their servers got clobbered from the demand. No way the ipad is gonna get a version.

      The Mystery deepens

      Wanted to see if Skyfire worked better on my iPod Touch. Surprise, iTunes store shows Skyfire Web Browser no longer available. What's up w/that?:mad:

      Did you read the reviews?

      hmmm, if there is so much demand for it maybe apple can make some kind of compromise....maybe a version of flash that only plays web videos and no animations or scripts.

      Steve Jobs is not going to allow Flash on his hand-helds. There is no profit for him, and more important, he does not maintain control. If I can view my 45-page music website on my Touch without having to convert 200 video and music files (all my own original content, BTW) I don't have to adopt "the Apple Way," (that's me and the other 95% of the installed web browser base.)

      So for now, link to YouTube and double-upload, but I can't take the time to recode for the browsers, I'm trying to make music, not websites. Thanks again, Stevie...

      These could be such amazing devices - but I guess this app'll show up on Cydia, and I'll have to jb. Now I have a reason. :D
