Running Flash content on your iDevice isn’t new. We’ve seen it in the form of Frash, though you’ll need a jailbroken iPhone and it’s far from perfect. But what about a simple (and legit) solution for watching Flash videos on your iPhone? Well according to CNNMoney, this soon will become a reality as Apple has finally approved the Mobile Browser app SkyFire, which will make its grand appearance on the App Store this Thursday at 9AM EST for the price of $2.99.
Already a popular app on the Android platform, SkyFire is able detect and convert Flash videos into HTML 5 on SkyFire’s servers. As this process is happening on the fly, users will then be able to watch these videos that were previously unavailable to the iPhone/iPod Touch. Unfortunately, SkyFire won’t let you play with Flash games, or non-video Flash content, but it’s still a great start for users who’ve been starving for Flash on the platform. Check out the demo video of the app in action after the gap.
Update: SkyFire arrived a bit earlier than expected and is now live on the App Store!
