Skyfire has finally dared to submit it’s Flash enabled mobile web browser to Apple Apps Store and according to the developers Apple is going to accept it. Skyfire’s lightening fast web browser encodes Flash into HTML5 in real time.
We all know how much Steve Jobs likes Flash. According to him Flash has poor security, it kills battery of your device and performs poorly on mobile device. It is for these reasons that Apple does not allow Flash apps and videos to run on any of their devices.
Stating from an email from the company:
“this submission is the tech industry’s first test of whether Jobs’ ‘thoughts on Flash’ ban is actually political rather than technical” and it will be approved for several reasons.
Apart from Jailbroken devices and some workarounds, Flash has been a dream for Apple’s mobile users. If approved, the browser will allow users to play million of flash videos on Apple’s devices without any technical problems, because of which Jobs had banned Flash.
We have seen the drama with Opera mobile submission in Apps Store before so we are highly skeptical of Skyfire making it through in one shot with Flash.
