Back in January Skyfire rolled out an updated version of its mobile web browser for Android, which included a few improvements and a number of bug fixes. Now we have received news that an updated version has just been released for the iPhone, bringing with it deeper Facebook integration.
According to a recent article over on the intomobile.com website by Dusan, Skyfire 3.0 for iPhone (also compatible with the iPod Touch and iPad) is now available to download from the Apple App Store. One of the new features included in the latest update is Popular Content.
The Popular Content feature enables users to instantly view what content on any given website is the most popular amongst your Facebook friends. Another great feature is the Fireplace Feed Reader, which provides a filtered list of your Facebook feed including videos/images posted by your Facebook friends.
Version 3.0 also brings the Facebook “Like Button” to the web browser, allowing users to “Like” or “Unlike” any web page they visit. In addition to the social networking features, Skyfire 3.0 also brings support for even more Flash video content, from websites that weren’t previously supported.
As noted on the itunes.apple.com website (where you can read the full list of new features), the Skyfire application does require your Apple device to be running iOS 3.0 or later. Do you use the Skyfire Mobile Web Browser app on your iOS device?
