As a web browser for iPad Mini, Skyfire is an alternative app designed to help users unlock Flash content in the Apple device or on YouTube. As a cloud based mobile browsing app, Skyfire is able to translate those Flash movies to iPad Mini friendly videos in a short time. In other words, it functions like an online Flash for iPad Mini converter. However it doesn’t support all video sites and it costs users about 4.99 dollars.
