Latest Skyfire app thumbs its nose at Apple.

Latest Skyfire app thumbs its nose at Apple. e-Reading Software Skyfire, developer of the Skyfire web browser, just announced their latest app. It's a utility app that helps you save flash based videos (Youtube, Vimeo, etc) so you can watch them later on iOS.

Pretty cool, huh?

But does more than just work with those few video sites. You can also add a video to your playlist from inside Safari. All you have to do is email the webpage to your account with SkyFire Video. You can also add a bookmarklet to Safari that will do the job. I don't think it actually copies the videos; it looks like the app is just a tracking system and video player. But it can help you build a playlist of videos for watching later.

You can get the app now in iTunes for both iPhone and iPad.
