Skyfire is a browser that can play flash video by converting Flash video to HTML5 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and turned out to be very popular. It actually is so successful that the developers decided to remove it from the App Store. Just five hours after Skyfire came available in the App Store, Skyfire became the top grossing app and the third highest paid app overall.

Robert said: “The user experience was performing well for the first few hours, but as the surge continued, the peak load on our servers and bandwidth caused the video experience to degrade,” This is the reason to remove the app from the App Store till they upgraded their servers to handle more traffic.
