Skyfire Web Browser for iPad – the Flash-enabling browser app that is one of the most popular and top grossing apps in the App Store – has had another update today, to Version 2.3.0.
Here’s what’s new in this latest version:
iPad 2.3.0 Delivers a better Skyfire User Experience with Site and Feature Specific Tips & Tricks, Updated Skyfire Support System and Localized Version of Skyfire in Seven New Languages.
• Localized Versions of Skyfire: Skyfire UI is now translated and accessible in seven new languages: Italian, French, Portuguese, German, Japanese, Korean & Spanish
• Video Support Flow: We are continually striving to add more supported video sites & players each day – Our new video support flow makes it easy for users to connect directly with our engineers and support team for optimum customer service and to identify sites that need our immediate attention. We love the feedback and are working hard to make Skyfire for iPhone a 5 Star App (Thanks for rating us and sharing with your friends!)
• Related Sites Feature: Our video support team will continue to address sites that need attention – In the meanwhile, if you encounter a site that does not work via Skyfire, we are now making discovery of Skyfire supported sites accessible with the touch of the ‘Related Sites’ button. Clicking the ‘Related Sites’ button searches the web for comparable video sites and content, and delivers these web links conveniently to users – helping users find more video content via Skyfire.
And here’s an App Store link for Skyfire for iPad; it’s priced at $4.99.
Skyfire—maker of the award-winning rich media browser for mobile devices—announces its first-ever “flash sale”, where it will be reducing the price for both its iPhone and iPad applications by $1.00. Download the reduced price Skyfire app while you can, because this limited time offer lasts a short 48 hours. The Flash Sale begins today at 9:00am (PST) and ends February 18, 2011 at 9:00am (PST).
Ha. A Flash Sale from the Flash-enabling browser – that seems quite fitting. Skyfire has already proved a very popular app on both iPad and iPhone – with the iPad version generating around 200,000 downloads in just its first three days on the App Store.
Today and tomorrow you can grab the app for $3.99 instead of its normal $4.99.
Here’s a Skyfire Web Browser for iPad App Store link.
Skyfire Web Browser for iPad is available in the App Store now.
Skyfire is the browser that enables Flash video on the iPad and iPhone, by doing the conversion to iOS-friendly format on their servers. Here’s more information on the app, straight from its App Store page:
WHAT IS SKYFIRE?
Finally on the iPad! Skyfire is the browser that not only allows you to view Flash Videos on iOS, but provides as well the best integration of social features for a quicker, more informative and most of all fun internet experience.
Skyfire Web Browser for iPad has been submitted to Apple for approval – so we should see it hitting the App Store within the next few days.
Skyfire is the hugely popular new browser app that allows Flash content to be played on iOS devices, by doing the conversion to iOS-allowed formats on their servers. The iPhone version of the app has already been approved by Apple and has been a big hit, so presumably the iPad version should sail through the approval process quickly.
Apparently the folks at Skyfire have got a few little extras for the iPad version as well …
Skyfire want the iPad version to be a more fun, connected experience, therefore they’ve put aFacebook and Twitter share button at the bottom of the screen, and another that displays updates from those two services. The same applies to Google Reader. A new feature they call Fireplace adds only links shared by your friends, opening any selected in a new tab.
Look for Skyfire for iPad to hit the App Store anytime now, maybe even this weekend.
I’ve not tried Skyfire at all yet, as I honestly just don’t find myself missing Flash content on my iPad or iPhone. I know lots of users do though, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on Skyfire once you see it in action on your iPad.

The folks at Skyfire are working on a version of their Skyfire Web Browser for iPad, as you can see in their tweet above. Skyfire is the browser app – recently launched for the iPhone – that translates Flash video on the fly into HTML 5 format so that it can be played on the iPhone.
I tried the app out recently on my iPhone 4 and found that, though it does what is says on the box (lets you see Flash video on the iPhone), it is pretty slow and not a great pleasure to use just yet, though your mileage may well vary depending on how much you have missed Flash video on your iPhone.
