Skyfire Web browser App

The Skyfire Web browser app for the iphone is THE browser for the iphone. It has tabs and bookmarks like Safari but what makes it stand out is it plays flash. For whatever reason why Apple and Adobe aren’t getting along and won’t allow flash on the iphone this app allows you to view those websites that have flash embedded in them without getting the ‘flash player needed’ message. There’s an option in the settings where you can load page as iPhone or Desktop, as well as, a private browsing option. There’s also easier access to clear cookies, cache, etc. If you get a link from somewhere else say an email you can just copy the link then open up Skyfire and it will ask if you want to visit the link that is on the clipboard. This app does cost a little, it is $2.99 in the App store, however, if you frequent flash sites it is worth it.   ****UPDATE**** If you have a jailbroken iPhone you can change the default browser so sites launch in Skyfire.
