Skyfire, Flash App for iPad & iPhone, comes to UK

Skyfire, the popular application that allows users to see flash content on iPad and iPhones, has finally made its way to the UK after a bumpy launch in the US three weeks earlier. The bumpy start was due to the demand it got after it was added to the App Store, with the number of downloads overloading the servers of Skyfire, forcing the company to pull its app out of App Store. Now that those issues are worked out, it has finally been rolled out to UK iPhone users, though they have to pay a little bit more for it.

Skyfire enables Flash content for iPhone by encoding Flash based content on a webpage into HTML5 format (a format approved by Apple) on the go, and delivering it to the user. The new version (v2.1) also comes with an improved video coverage, which allows users to access webpages that require logging in. The new Twitter Quickview in addition to the already existing Facebook Quickview allows the users to access their favorite social networking sites while streaming Flash content. However, Skyfire does not support games and apps that need user intervention, and the UK version does not work with sites which do not allow streaming to US servers.
