iPhone browser app Skyfire proved so popular on release, it ‘sold out’ – meaning so many people used it, the server strain forced its developer to remove the app from the App Store. However, with a return promised soon, it’s well worth stumping up for if you get the chance.
Skyfire has several selling points, with the biggest being its ability to play Flash videos – something not possible through the iPhone’s own Safari browser. Skyfire’s technology transcodes these videos into iPhone-friendly format – hence the server load. However, it’s got other strings to its bow, including deep integration of social sharing features.
