Mountain View based developer of mobile web browsers,Skyfire announced that their web browser app is ready for iPhone and is waiting for Apple’s approval.
If it gets approvals it will join Opera Mini as one of the very few third party browser apps.
The most interesting feature is that skyfire iPhone app has the ability to run Adobe Flash videos.
It can be mention that Apple had recently banned the use of transcoding processes to render Adobe Flash on the iPhone.Skyfire assures that they have developed the application under considering Apple’s all terms and condition.he company further notes that the app was developed “with significant oversight and feedback from Apple”.Skyfire’s mobile browser does not play or transcode Flash files. Instead, the iPhone app will remotely convert Flash videos into HTML5 format before they are embedded into the user’s browser.
While users may get access to Flash on their iPhones using Skyfire for iPhone, they may however not be able to interact with these Flash files. This is because the entire format conversion happens outside the iPhone’s local environment and consequently would render Flash-based games and music players dysfunctional.
What’s your thinking about that?Will Apple approve this?
