New App Lets iPhone & iPad Users View Flash Video

One of the major knocks against Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices is that their operating systems would not support playback of video in Adobe’s popular Flash format. But earlier today, the makers of the Skyfire mobile browser released an app that will give these devices that much-desired functionality.

The $1.99 app is called VideoQ, and it allows users to e-mail links to pages with Flash videos from their device’s browser to the app, where the video will be put into a queue.

Reuters reports that the app will only be available in North America for the time being, with plans to roll it out later.

If anyone downloads this app, we’d be curious to hear your feedback, especially if you can compare it to Flash video played on an Android device.
