Since Skyfire for iPad brought flash content to Apple’s iPad we have heard a lot of things about the mobile web browser, now we can tell you about another product which Skyfire Labs has released for both iPhone and iPad – this is called VideoQ.
What is VideoQ? Well simply put VideoQ is a new app which allows you to watch Flash videos which you come across whilst using Safari or any other browser, simply email the web link to your unique VideoQ email address or paste a Web link into the app and you will be able to watch it in VideoQ. This means you could queue up multiple videos and watch them at once, neat eh?
The app also has a social element, this allows you to discover the day’s hottest content, check out video channels and much more. If you have a particular interest such as technology or gaming etc you can customize video channels to see exactly what you want to see. Not only does VideoQ allow you to see content which you usually wouldn’t be able to see on your iOS device, but it also saves roughly 75% in terms of bandwidth – this means if you have a restrictive data plan you can watch four times the amount of video content as others may be able to.
As previously mentioned Skyfire VideoQ runs on both iPhone and iPad, we looked a little deeper and iPod Touch users should have no problems running the app either. The app costs $3.99 and requires iOS 4.0 or later, you can find out more details regarding requirements and perhaps buy the app here.
Below we have embedded a video which gives you a quick overview of the app’s functionality, it is an ideal solution if you are not a fan the Skyfire web browser but still want to see Flash content. So far reviews of the app haven’t been great, it currently has a 3 star rating based on 41 ratings and we are a little concerned by the compaints which suggest the app isn’t all that easy to use, also people are suggesting that content doesn’t always show up in VideoQ.
Have you used Skyfire videoQ? If so, did you experience any problems? Is the app worth $3.99? Let us know in the comments section below.
