If videos simply aren’t available in HTML5 and you HAVE to watch them on your iPhone or iPod Touch, here’s a solution. Skyfire is a web browser that allows you to play Flash videos on your iPhone and iPOd Touch. It doesn’t work on the iPad however.
Skyfire uses a cloud-computing platform to translate videos from Flash into an iPhone friendly format. Certain websites, however, like Hulu (even after you’ve used an IP mask), don’t allow it. This browser only works for video, not games and applications.
It’s had a pretty decent download rate though, it’s currently the number 2 paid application in the app store which means it’s overtaken Chillingo’s Cut the Rope (finally!). If you can’t guess what’s number one right now, hope that bubble’s comfortable (Angry Birds, duh!).
Skyfire costs $2.99. Here’s the baffling part though. As much as Apple hates Flash, they’ve approved this application that supports their nemesis.
