    Apple has approved the Skyfire mobile browser which is capable of playing Flash video. It will be available in the App Store soon.

    According to CNNMoney, Skyfire will be available for download at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday for $2.99.

    To get around Apple's restriction, Skyfire came up with an innovative solution: When users click on a page that contains Flash video, Skyfire's servers download, render and translate the video into HTML5, which is a Web standard that iOS devices support. Skyfire then displays a thumbnail that users can click on to stream the video from its servers. "We will attack those pesky blue Flash error messages," said Jeffrey Glueck, Skyfire's CEO.
