SkyFire has already raked in nearly a million dollars in App Store sales

Cashing in on a Flashless iOS

Hey Steve Jobs: you know that Flash thing that you keep telling people they don't need and refuse to support on your platform? It seems that Apple device owners have spoken; $2.99 at a time. SkyFire, the cross platform app that brings Flash video to devices that cannot play them via HTML 5 conversion, has raked in nearly a million dollars since its release this past weekend.




Then again, if you look at it another way, Apple may come out as the shrewd one in this deal after they glean their 30% cut of App Store sales. iOS is the only platform that charges for the app, and SkyFire had to seriously scramble after having to pull the app only hours after release due to the overload on their servers. It looks like they've fully recovered and are currently living the high life.
