New app makes Flash content viewable on iPhone

2 Nov 2010

A new app for the iPhone that enables the user to make Flash videos viewable has been approved by Apple.

The app – SkyFire – converts Flash videos into HTML5 on SkyFire’s servers and are available on the iPhone after a short delay.

SkyFire was set up in 2006 and already provides a free mobile web browser with rich media experience for Windows Mobile, Nokia phones, Palm and Sony Ericsson and last month announced its intentions to head to the App store.

The technique will not operate with Flash games however, as well as other non-video Flash content, according to CNNMoney.
