    Does it perform any better or worse than safari? How is the interface? Is it retina supported?

    This app definitely needs an update. It just doesn't work as advertised. Avoid!

    UI needs some getting used to. It is not bad but I prefer the safari browser on the iphone. Also the browser is buggy at times. If a video does not play, you might need to reload the page again. However there is no guarantee that all videos will play properly

    This app is garbage. It takes ages to convert any video, I tried a few on ebaums world and it took around 1 minute to convert a 30 second vid. Not impressed at all, retina isn't even supported.
    Sort it out skyfire, get more servers and give this app an update.

    After many tests Skyfire recognized some flash videos even on my iphone 4. This app is very buggy. It doesn't recognize even 10% of all flash videos. It is more try and error (with more error) and I cannot imagine using it for anything if I am not sure if Skyfire will work. A big disappointment.

    Not a fan so far. I agree it needs updates!

    Well it is a step in the right direction but very limited in what the app can do right now. Hopefully there will be improvements to come.
