Company still struggling with iPhone app demand
Skyfire is already at work on an iPad version of its iOS web browser, according to an official Twitter post. "If your primary device is the iPad, please consider waiting," part of the message reads. Still unmentioned is when the new app will become available, if it will cost extra, and what features it might have beyond a scaled-up interface.
The iPhone browser lets users watch Flash video on an Apple handheld through transcoding on a remote server. Although priced at $3 the app has proven popular, so much so that its developer has only been making "batches" of downloads available on the App Store during the past several days. Each active user increases the strain on Skyfire servers, though the company's CEO has said it is "working around the clock" to add extra capacity.
