Great !!! I hope it will work with some of the flash sites I'd like to use to watch some sport vs having to watch on my PC

Dschro103 says:

I can't agree more!!! I was recently sitting next to a person with an IPad 2 like me, and he's sitting there watching college football games live as I was trying to on the "Watch ESPN" app and I was so upset because I could not access the coverage because I'm an AT&T ipad2 and he was a Verizon ipad2. in trying to find out on this site if I can change coverage to Verizon from AT&T (which now I know I can't) I stumbled upon this app. it may not help with the ESPN app (hoping it will though) but I am very much hoping at it solves my other many many let downs of not being able to access so much of what is offered because Apple refuses to add Flash and it's the main too needed to watch SO much media on the net. thank u Skyfire high hopes for success on this app

elavum says:

My 4S is here any browser whichcan play flash will be a plus

Bsmith52 says:

Wow...just what I've been looking for! I felt "left out" when I couldn't watch some viedos... Ain't technology awesome.. even us "older" chicks learn something new everyday! Maybe I'll even get lucky and win the Skyfire Web Browser for my iPhone. Skyfire Labs rock!

Kevin says:

Hope this skyfire works

Lorenzo says:

I have been looking for a means to watch flash driven videos on my Ipad since I got it! Where I stay there is no Tv so my iPad is all I got. Now I could at least watch a more variety of video ! Thanks,
