Getting something like a browser through Apple's App Store approval process can be a nail-biting experience both for the developer and for would-be users -- but now that Opera Mini set the precedent, there's little justification for denying them (assuming there's no foolishness going on under the hood). This time around it's Skyfire, submitted in early September and finally cleared by Cupertino's powers that be this week which means that it should pop up in the App Store in short order. As in the Android build, Skyfire's iOS browser does some back-end magic to convert any Flash videos that it finds embedded in web pages so that they can be viewed, a feature that could make this a pretty popular download. Keep a close eye in iTunes over the next day or two.
