View Adobe Flash on iPhone (iOS) thanks to Skyfire 2.0

Got an iPhone or an iPod touch? Mildly frustrated by the lack of Flash support on your favorite iOS device? As it turns out, that could soon be changing with an interesting workaround. Even more interesting, the solution is apparently Apple approved too.

Skyfire 2.0 has indeed been approved by Apple and it is slated to show up in the App Store this Thursday. It’s another web browser alternative to mobile Safari, but it packs the extra punch of being able to play Flash-based video content on your iPhone.

To do this, Skyfire takes the Flash content, remotely converts it to HTML5, and relays the new stuff back to your iOS device. The converted video is then perfectly happy on your iPhone, but you will have to wait for Skyfire’s remote servers to do the lifting for you.

This won’t work for Flash games or anything like that, but it does mean that you can go ahead and stream your favorite Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert clips now. Skyfire for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad will sell for $2.99.
