Skyfire has updated their iPhone app to version 3.0. This comes with some new updates (listed below) and in the press release Skyfire stated that “Skyfire for iPhone and Skyfire for iPad are among the most popular apps in the Apple App Store, and have been downloaded over 1.5 million times since launching in November 2010”. At $2.99 a pop that’s some good revenue ($4,485,000).
New features in Skyfire 3.0 for iPhone are the following:
More Video – Enhanced capability to give you more video designed for Adobe Flash Player from more sites. Flash videos will be optimized for your device and network, giving you smooth video playback, and (for users on capped or tiered data plans) saving you bandwidth and money.
Popular Content – Our favorite new feature; instantly see what content on any given site is most popular with your friends and within the Facebook community. Recommendations from friends are prioritized and show up at the top of the list.
Fireplace Feed Reader – A simple but addictive tool that provides a filtered list of your Facebook feed that includes links to web pages, images, and videos posted by your Facebook friends. A great place to start for browsing.
Facebook Portal Integration – With a single touch you have access to your Facebook feed, profile and fast-growing location service Places. No need to switch between apps.
Facebook Like Button – Skyfire 3.0 puts the Facebook Like Button on every page of the Internet. No scrolling around searching for the button on the page, simply click on the SkyBar™ Like Button to easily “like” or “unlike” the page you are viewing.
Skyfire OneTouch Search – Enter a single search term and choose between Google, Video (from VideoSurf), or Wikipedia with a single touch without the need to navigate to separate sites
