Skyfire Hits The App Store. iPhone Browser That Can Play Flash Videos

Yesterday, we told you that Apple approved SkyFire – browser that can play flash video – and it will be available for download at 9 a.m. Eastern on Thursday for $2.99. Well, the big surprise is that Skyfire is already available in the app store.

SkyFire will convert Flash video to HTML5 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users and that’s what pretty much every iOS device(s) user wanted since day one.

We only had like 5 minutes to play with the browser, but we aren’t wow’d at all. It is really really slow, and it still won’t play flash on-page, but in an external player – because it needs to pull the flash content and convert it into HTML5. Hopefully our experience will improve over the time.

FEATURES:

  • Play millions of Flash videos – everyday, with no limits!
  • All-new ‘Skybar’ toolbar gives one-click access to video and related content
  • Be social: Share via Facebook and Twitter.
  • Stay in touch: Unique Facebook ‘Quickview’ allows you to see your wall and feeds with one click.
  • Standard browser elements: Tabs, search, sharing, bookmarks, history, etc.
  • Video search, with safe search option helps you quickly find videos about your favorite topic
  • ‘Desktop’ option loads pages as on a desktop browser, giving a greater selection of video (vs. mobile sites)
  • Private Browsing option: Browse with no history and cookies left behind
  • Click the ‘Explore’ button for related videos, news trends, photos and tweets!

NOTES:

  • Flash VIDEO content is supported, but Flash Games and Apps are NOT supported (aren’t there enough games on iPhone already?)
  • Hulu NOT supported (they don’t allow it), but scores of other premium sites available
  • List of supported sites grows daily (request new sites via Settings >> Feedback menu)
  • It may take 15-25 seconds for videos to load: Preparing goodness takes time…

Skyfire is available for $2.99 in the app store…
