What does that mean?

Skyfire Cashes in Almost 1 Million Dollars

By | November 10, 2010 | 18 Comments

Skyfire Cashes in Almost 1 Million DollarsMight make Opera jealous.

With all the “problems” that plagued Skyfire for the iOS launch, the numbers are in.

According to the MobileCrunch post, a company behind mobile web browser Skyfire has sold more than 300 000 copies for their first weekend.

If we do the math:
300,000++ * $2.99 = ~$900,000

Now, Skyfire will obviously not receive all that cash, as Apple wants their cut as well (30%, if no exclusive deals were made).

That still leaves the company with more than 600,000 USD to spend on candies and chocolate.

Skyfire: Now You See Me, Now You DontApparently, recently released Skyfire for the iOS became top selling app in just over 5 hours and was doing so well that its publishers had to actually remove it from the app store.

According to the blog post, it far exceeded their initial expectations and was too much for the servers to handle.

When can you expect it to re-appear?

As soon as they increase the capacity of servers. No ETA yet.

According to CNNMoney.com, it shall be available on Thursday and is priced at $2.99.

Is it any good? Well, the main selling point is this: Skyfire has a built in Flash video to HTML5 converter. Therefore, iPhone, iPod or iPad users will be able to enjoy Flash content. However, don’t get to excited as it won’t convert games or other non-video related content.
