Many new smart devices are finding that when they partner with Facebook and provide features that other phones do not for the social networking platform, their chances of success rise quite significantly. Now, the Skyfire 3.0 app for Android is going to be adding a number of Facebook features to their browser that will increase compatibility with the device.
Skyfire is known for being the web browser that allows unlocked iPhone 4 users to play flash content online even though Apple has not officially supported flash because they claim that it will make their phones vulnerable to attacks. Skyfire works by converting the flash videos into other types of videos that are more suitable for a plethora of different devices, and the fact that they are adding Facebook integration will only help the browser to grow.
In the same way that Digg and other social bookmarking sites work, Skyfire will allow users to check out the most popular content that has been bookmarked to Facebook through their browser. They have also added the “Fireplace” which gives you all of the news feeds and links, videos, and images that your friends have posted. You also can access a number of different Facebook pages, including your profile with a single click of a button.
This is good news for Skyfire users who have been hearing rumors regarding Facebook support for weeks now. With nearly the entire world on the social networking service it is smart to add integration on devices, apps, websites and everything in between. This is a move that will not only benefit thegrowth of the app, but the users who use it as well. It will be interesting to see how well the new features are received by their current users because it will take away from the browser screen and will add a number of different buttons to the browser itself, drastically changing the interface.
