    Funny how they show the screenshot with skyfire rating of 4 stars. I had looked in the app store last night when skyfire was still in the US app store and was willing to buy it but the 2 star overall rating put me off. I wonder how I saw 2 stars, and they're showing a screenshot of 4 stars. :)

    After the first 14 reviews when I first saw it in the AppStore it had a 5 star rating. It dropped quickly when people realized that it really wasn't that great.

    How can a digitally distributed item (like this app) is "SOLD OUT". Can someone explain to me this? Is that the best they could come up with.

    The app would send the flash content to the Skyfire servers, get converted to HTML5 and redirected to your device.
    Their servers became overloaded, thus sold out.

    Read? What, do you expect people to KNOW something about what they're bitching about BEFORE they bitch about it? Do you even watch reality TV? What's next, truth in advertising? Fair elections? :)
