At the same time the hype about Skyfire web browser for iPhone 4and iPhone 3GS died down, users who have experienced this paid iPhone app have aired so many complaints.
Despite its popularity in November (launch date), Skyfire iPhone app did not quite fit the bill. On paper, the app developer claimed that it can run Adob Flash Player objects such as Youtube videos and Flash games on Facebook without problems.
Unfortunately, we have encountered so many errors ourselves when we used this web browser on our iPod Touch 3rd Generation model. Even our iPad tablet pc cannot run Flash objects when playing Facebook game apps like Farmville and Cityville using Skyfire.
However, some user reviews of Skyfire point towards the positive side. Users who have had success in running this app claim that they indeed can play Flash objects without trouble and the browser itself is better than the free Firefox Web Browser for iPhone, even beating Opera Mini 5.1.1 to the punch.
At iTunes, Skyfire has two versions – one for the smaller iPhone and iTouch (cost is $2.99 per download) and another for the bigger iOS device, iPad tablet, which costs $4.99.
