Skyfire 3 for iPhone released, Flash video playback improved

Skyfire 3 for iPhoneSkyfire for iPhone, the browser that shot to fame at the end of 2010 thanks to its ability to play Flash video, has now reached version 3. The most notable change, if you're using Skyfire to play Flash video on your iPhone, is that Skyfire now works with more sites, and transcoded video has been further optimized to save your bandwidth, and thus money.

The new version features even more Facebook integration, with the Facebook Like button now appearing at the bottom of every page you visit. There's also one-touch access to your entire Facebook feed -- and a new feature called 'Fireplace Feed Reader' that parses Facebook for links, images and videos posted by your friends.

The new features, in fact, very closely match Skyfire 3 for Android, which was released in November last year.

iPad users can also download the new version, but it's probably wiser to wait for the iPad-specific app, which should be updated to version 3 in due course.
