    Well, this isn't a surprise!

    Skyfire disappears from iTunes App Store due to technical difficulties -- Engadget

    Trying to get a copy of the Skyfire browser for your iOS device? You may not have much luck, as the pseudo-Flash-capable browser has just disappeared from iTunes App Stores around the globe, mere hours after its splashy debut. When we try to download it for ourselves in the United States we get the message immediately above, and RazorianFly readers are chiming in with reports that the app is no longer available in Greece, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Norway, Spain and the UK. We just pinged Skyfire for comment and they say it's not Apple's fault; demand for a Flash video workaround is apparently so high that the company's having server issues and decided to pull the app rather than introduce new users to a sub-par experience. Skyfire assures us that it's adding servers as quickly as it can, but didn't provide an ETA on when we might see the app once more.

    I am using it now, and every video through the following websites:

    nfl.com
    nhl.com
    cnn.com

    Complete lag. Browser is fast in loading pages, but its useless right now as they will re-release the app with a better stable version. Hopefully, really soon.

    "Skyfire. There's a server for that."

    Sadly, one server is not enough.

    It's back in the app store on a "First come, first serve" type of basis.

    Skyfire for iPhone returning to App Store on limited basis. First come, first serve. | TiPb

    Sometimes, I feel like I'm the only one not viewing websites with flash. Besides sports websites, what's a good flash website to test on an iPhone\iPad?

    Websites for tv channels that have viewable content. Things like TBS, Comedy
    Central, NBC, etc.

    in order to test it again.

    Oh, no, I haven't bought the app. I was merely testing the default iPhone browser with said website(s).

    It always seems that most of the websites that I check from my iPhone are 'mobile friendly', thus I've never noticed an issue. Thus I wanted to check a website that was specifically not 'mobile', and with flash...
