Flash-playing Skyfire grosses $1 million in a week
It's been a week since Skyfire made appearance on the App Store and crunched under the heavy load to its servers responsible for converting Flash video to HTML5, the trick that makes the magic of playing Flash content possible for iPhone users. Since then the browser has been available in smaller batches in accordance with server capacity. A native Skyfire app for the iPad is also in the works and it sounds promising given the screen estate on the tablet.
Apple loosened its approval policy in the past months to let competitors to its Safari web browser, like Opera and Skyfire, enter the browser wars on the App Store. How will this affect mobile traffic we are yet to see.
