Skyfire browser for iPad goes live, lets you finally watch Flash videos

Skyfire for iPad Skyfire, the alternative browser that uses some server-based trickery to make Flash videos playable on the iPhone, has just gone live for iPad. The new version tailored for the iPad comes with one touch access to your Facebook news feed, profile, friends, inbox, events and places. This is all made possible by what Skyfire calls Facebook QuickView, which is basically a button on the lower-side toolbar that gives you quick access to the aforementioned items. Similarly, there's a QuickView for Twitter. Your Google Reader feeds are also just one tap away. Skyfire doesn't incorporate a feed reader, rather it has a dedicated button that will launch the mobile version of Google Reader (and, for one extra tap -- Gmail, Google Buzz, Calendar or Docs) at any time in an overlay.

The Fireplace Feed Reader will, if tapped, display a filtered list of your Facebook feed that only includes links to Web pages, images, and videos posted by your friends. The Popular button on the SkyBar (the lower-side toolbar) will show you what content from the site you're currently on is popular among (all) Facebook users. And the Facebook Like button lets you instantly 'like' any Web page with just one tap. You can also share the page you're on with Google Reader, Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Read It Later, Instapaper and Pinboard.

Additionally, Skyfire for iPad has support for full-screen browsing, user agent switching, and private browsing. A demo video of the app is available after the break.

Skyfire for iPad costs $4.99. Download it from the iTunes App Store
