Apple has approved a new app that will allow iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users to view flash videos on their devices.
A app called Skyfire will soon bring flash video content to iOS devices. The app is a web browser built on top of Safari that transcodes flash videos to HTML5 on the fly.
Skyfire will not work translate flash games or other non-video content but the app should make millions of flash videos viewable on iOS devices.
Here are some of Skyfire’s other features.
- Adaptive streaming technology ensures optimal utilization of network and processor bandwidth (preserves battery life)
- Sharing to Facebook and Twitter – it’s simple!
- Facebook Quickview – Check your Facebook News/Wall without opening another app or page
- Intuitive and finger friendly user interface for easy browsing experience
- Load full desktop webpages on your mobile device
- Multi-tab browsing – open up to eight windows and browse simultaneously
Skyfire will be available at the App Store on Thursday for $2.99.
