Skyfire submits iPad browser to App Store

Wraps in features from recent Android app

Skyfire has submitted the iPad version of its iOS browser for approval by Apple, the company says. The new app should mostly provide a larger viewing area for both Flash videos and webpages. It will also include a more convenient menu system, however, and integrate some social networking features carried over from SkyFire 3.0 for Android.

Specifically people will be able to quickly assign Facebook "likes" for webpages via a dedicated button, and check up on Twitter and Facebook content using QuickView panes. This includes profiles, friends and other information. An RSS reader will be built-in, with particular support for Google Reader, allowing online feed sync.

When the iPad app might go live is uncertain. Equally unknown is how much it will cost, as Skyfire has yet to announce a pricetag. If it follows the trend of many iPad apps, however, it should be more expensive than the iPhone app's $3.
