Although Skyfire is known to “bring Adobe Flash to the iPhone”, you should be aware of the following limitations:

  • Flash VIDEOS are supported; Flash Games and Flash Apps are NOT supported.
  • We do NOT SUPPORT ALL WEB SITES that use Flash Video. We are working hard at it, with millions of videos already supported. But we cannot guarantee that your favorite site is already on the list.
  • For users and sites outside USA: Your country’s TV website may not work in Skyfire as some sites do not stream to our US based servers.
  • Hulu is NOT supported (they don’t allow it), but scores of other premium sites are available
  • It may take 15-30 seconds for videos to load: Preparing goodness takes time…
  • The application language is in English.
