New Mobile Browser Brings Flash to iPhone


Apple CEO Steve Jobs has repeatidly atacked Adobe's Flash technology but finally Adobe Flash is coming to the iPhone thanks to Skyfire browser.

Skyfire is a web browser for the iPhone platform that offers the ability for iPhone users to view Flash video content by transcoding it into HTML5 on the fly. Skyfire was submitted the browser for Apple's App Store approval on September 1st and has since made minor adjustments to the software, based on submission feedback, to ensure all of Apple's guidelines regarding HTML5 video streaming are met.

Skyfire for iPhone was built in accordance with Apple guidelines, including the use of a WebKit browser core shared with Safari, and h.264 adaptive streaming.

The browser enables Flash on Apple devices by transcoding video content into HTML5 on the fly; it supports iOS devices via Apple's HTTP live streaming. Skyfire's cloud-computing technology also adapts video content based on connection strength, meaning that videos will play smoothly given the wireless network conditions at the time.

Skyfire is also a rowser built for the social media generation. Skyfire's SkyBar technology includes three key features missing from all iPhone browsers to date.

* Video - The "Video" icon allows users to view the millions of Flash videos previously unavailable on iOS devices.
* Related Content - The "Explore" icon recommends relevant content (news, video, tweets, etc.) based on the page they're viewing at the time.
* Sharing - The "Share" icon lets users share any article or video easily with their friends on Facebook, Twitter or e-mail.

"We are delighted to share Skyfire for iPhone with key reporters and bloggers, and we remain optimistic for approval by the App Store," noted Jeffrey Glueck, CEO of Skyfire. "After helpful feedback from Apple on some technical details, we have re-submitted our app. Skyfire can help unlock millions of videos previously unviewable for iOS users, in a way that will be network-friendly and battery-friendly, and using only Apple runtime on the device."

Skyfire will be hitting the Apple App Store this Thursday, priced at $2.99.
