Skyfire Web Browser Coming to iPad

by Marianne Schultz
 

Skyfire, the the browser app that allows iPhone users to view Flash content that debuted in the App Store last week, will be available for the iPad soon. As 9 to 5 Mac points out, the company announced that an iPad version is in the works through its Twitter account:

If you’re impatient, you can indeed use the current iPhone version of Skyfire in 2x mode to adjust its display to fit the iPad’s larger screen but it’s pretty pixelated and doesn’t look pretty. Skyfire’s tweet seems to indicate that the company is developing a separate version for the iPad instead of converting the current app into a universal one that would work on both the iPhone and iPad, requiring users to buy the app twice to enjoy it on both devices.

Since its release, the Skyfire app has been incredibly popular with demand so high upon release that the company halted sales of the app in order to beef up server capacity. It made it back to the App Store in batches at the start of the weekend and MobileCrunch reports that the company generated over $1 million in sales for this first weekend in the App Store. It appears that Skyfire is here to stay in the App Store now – check out our review of it if you’re wondering if it’s worth $2.99.
