Are there any iPhone owners who have used the Skyfire browser App? What was it like for you?

Asked by Buttonstc (27597points) December 15th, 2011 from iPhone

I just recently read that this browser offers the ability to view Flash and other video formats not supprted in IOS.

How well and consistently is this done in your experience?

I’m not really interested in Flash gaming sites at all so if that’s a problem, it’s not germane to my needs.

What about the rest of this browser’s functions? What do you like about it? What do you dislike about it? How logical is the layout for the bookmarking functions?

How easy (or difficult) is it to import or export or sync bookmarks with Firefox and Safari?

Any feedback you can give me would be appreciated. Since I prefer using one browser consistently (usually Firefox) rather than hopping around and switching, I’d like to find out as much as I can beforehand.

Also, unlike Firefox, it’s not a free App so I’d like to know what I’m getting myself in for before purchase. I’ve not yet found it necessary to use anything other than free Apps but am very willing to make an exception if it’s really worth it.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I tried ad-supported version on Android, and found that out was nothing I needed, and had less to offer than Dolphin. It was responsive though, and while I don’t need the video conversion, it may be worthwhile for that feature alone.

As for syncing bookmarks, I did not see that option; I think you need Firefox for that one.

YMMV.
