Skyfire Mobile Browser for Android Playable Flash Videos and More!
Apr 29, 2010 12:00 PM –
Skyfire today launched the first Flash Video enabled mobile web browser for Android phones! Not only does it allow for viewing flash video (which was not possible on mobile phones until recent) yet brings a faster mobile Internet experience via cloud computing (like Opera Mini for Android), social recommendations, and social sharing of content with ease.
Key Features in the Skyfire Mobile Browser:
- SkyBar – The SkyBar brings the best of the internet to a mobile user’s fingertips, without any additional searching. By activating the SkyBar with a single touch, users are given access to Flash videos on a web page that otherwise would not play, related content recommendations, and easier sharing with their social networks.
- Video – The “Video” icon enables users to play millions of Flash videos around the web that otherwise do not play on mobile. This unlocks content trapped behind those error messages with question marks and blue Legos. Behind the scenes, videos are translated into a format easier for the phone to play, like html5 video.
- Related Content – The “Explore” icon brings the most relevant content on the internet to a user’s fingertips based on what they are viewing at the time. The Explore button pulls video, buzz, news, images and other sites from the web based on what is on the current page.
- Sharing – The “Share” icon lets users share any article or video easily to their friends on Facebook, Twitter, or by email and SMS messaging, adding a comment, and all with a single click.features.
