skyfire ipad

It was just last month that Skyfire released its Skyfire Web Browser app for iPhone and iPod Touch. As you might be already aware, one of the most interesting aspects about browser app is its ability to run Adobe Flash videos – specially when you consider Apple’s stand against the multimedia platform.

Folks at Skyfire have been working on the iPad app and it looks like it will be available shortly as they’ve submitted it to Apple for approval.

Skyfire for iPad will allow users to view flash videos in full screen mode. It is also slated to get full Facebook, Twitter and Google Reader integration.

If you happen to own both, an iPad and an iPhone, let us also inform you that you will need to purchase separate apps for both the devices.

The iPhone version is currently priced at $2.99 and the iPad version will cost slightly more than that.

Engadget also managed to get a hand-on experience with Skyfire for iPad. You can checkout the video below:

We hope that by the time the app is ready for release, Skyfire would have prepared their servers for the expected spike in traffic from the hordes of iPad users. Skyfire had to pull down the iPhone version of the App from the App Store on the day of its launch because their servers could not handle the spike in traffic generated by the app.

Did you buy the Skyfire app for iPhone/iPod Touch? What did you think of the iPhone app? Will you be buying the iPad app?

Update:

Skyfire Web browser app for iPad is now available in the App Store for $4.99 (iTunes link).
