View flash based content on your iOS device with Skyfire's VideoQ
For those iOS users who wish that Steve Jobs was a little more open minded toward Adobe Flash, Skyfire is offering an app that will let you view Flash content aimed for Safari, Opera and other unsupported mobile browsers. Called VideoQ, the app works quite simply. Send the URL of the flash content you want to play to your VideoQ account. Open the VideoQ app and the flash content will play previously unviewable content from over 1 million sites.

It's all part of a grand scheme to make VideoQ a repository of flash videos to share and save. Instead of having to go from site to site, open up VideoQ to see According to Skyfire, the video is optimized by the app in order to keep data use down. The app saves 75% of  bandwidth while streaming video. VideoQ is available from the App Store for $1.99.

I thought iOS users didn't need flash.

We don't. But just in case an android user wants us to view an ad, we can.

Great news! Now iphone users can spend two bucks... Install an unsupported browser...and their phone will almost operate. Makes you wonder why others don't copy. Probably find it more convenient to have a device that works.

Almost operate? Is that why android devices have a high return rate? Lol. Oh well, android devices are good at PRETENDING that they actually operate, lol.

which android devices? you make a blanket statement that presumes ALL android devices when it couldnt be further from the truth. There are certain ones returned more than others sure.. but most of the time its the cheap ones that are returned and then people trade them in for another android of a higher caliber. I can tell you for a fact that the GalaxyS's return rate is miniscule. I can safely say the same for the Sensation and a half dozen other phones too.

@remix. Oh I'm sorry for making such a comment. I forgot that iOS users not entitled to making provocative comments, only fandroids are :) Still, doesn't change the FACT that android has a way higher return rate than iOS :)

have iOS make a few budget phones. Talk to me then. :) The beauty of open source is you get phones for every spectrum (and every quality rating.. lol). It takes an extra 3 IQ points to look at the different android phones and surmize which will probably be the better quality android phone. I guess some people were just made for iOS.. lol compare the galaxyS return rates to the iphone4. They run nearly the exact same hardware so it woud be a fair fight. iOS may still win but it will be a much much closer race.

Apple still dominates regardless of android's bigger market share. And there's nothing you or your stinking balls can do about it :)

people make such a big deal about flash...it's really not, it just seems to be a tool for bragging. honestly, for what i use my phone for it doesn't really incorporate flash & for the iPhone to be apparently so limited on what it can view i seem to navigate to each website i need to (same sites as i did on all of my flash-enabled Droids) with no issue. the flash argument isn't all that valid. its like having a car without a sunroof as opposed to one that does. its not that big of deal as diehard Android users make it seem. its almost brought up as an attempt to jab iOS but i truthfully don't hear many iPhone users complaining about lack of it. Skyfire? meh...not impressed with any of the 3rd party browsers that are available. i always roll out with the stock browser.

It's because it's the only thing that they can hold on to that iOS does not support natively. Fandroids know themselves that flash is a dying platform, but they will continue to support it even if it causes battery issues, crashing, and other vulnerabilities, just so it can linger a bit longer and they can brag about it longer, lol. That's how illogical fandroids are.

dying as in it will still be around for your next 3-5 phone purchases? yup, we know that. how long are you willing to wait for HTML5 to become the main format though? lol. Android users get both. We dont have to wait, we get full web now.. and full web later.

Whats funny is if flash is such a dying technology and really isn't important as you isheep claim it isn't, then why is a third party developer making an app for the ios sheep that does nothing but play FLASH CONTENT???? Oh my goodness, thats ironic isn't it. I would be curious to know how many downloads this app will get from ios users since you know, flash isnt important and all. Just another way to be like android. Android-FTW!!

@deejhayes. Flash is dying. It's not dead yet :) Thanks to fandroids, flash is going to live a little bit longer.

iOS will become very simmilar to Android with the time. Steve Jobs is clever guy and knows very well that he must change iOS but he will not allow that changes happen from today to tomorrow. It would be to obvious. In two years we will have iOS and iPhone X with all futures which Android offers now, plus something special from Apple which will make iPhone again the most desirable smartphone in the world. === btw. I'm Android user. Desire HD ===

17. change? unregistered

good point.. but may i add? iOS will take great features from android, and maybe even OEMs, i.e lockscreen features or widgets or gestures, implement them in future iterations of the iphones and sell them with a tagline that goes something like "it changes everything again and again and again" and then they'll patent these features to make it appear they implemented them first.. why? JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN.. bleh

18. bosmobi unregistered

Exactly that will happen. And why? Because Apple is used to do it again and again, from the establishment of Cupertino based commpany to today. But, truth is, they are very good in that what they are doing. They are clever and very good in marketing and they know very well how to sell something which has a value of peanuts for big money. Respect for that.

@bosmobi. And that's why the iphone came out in 2007, and android came out in late 2008 :) That's why popular apps like Netflix, Facebook, Angry Birds, etc, came out on the iphone first, and then on android. Wow, you make a lot of sense, lol.

22. change? unregistered

@bosmobi: yes, i definitely agree with that. Apple is really good at product marketing and business management. Hands down their marketing and fanfare hype that they've built up over the years is something that many companies can learn from to improve. But the biggest problem is the whole patent bullying. You cannot use patent as a stronghold on other companies and strangle them out, all on pretext that you're the "supposed first" to implement certain tech. Popularize, yes i agree, first to implement is a totally different subject. @530gemini: sorry please get your facts rite. Android came out earlier than you think. how i know? I actually BOUGHT & OWNED the G1 when it first came out. Granted isn't the best device now, but when it appeared it was better then the first iPhone.

in the real world where android is crushing iOS you mean? in the real world where the next iOS update is nothing but a huge android rip off, which means even steve jobs knows android is superior? :) :) :)
