Skyfire Mobile Browser

Skyfire is now becoming the hotess mobile web browser for the smart phone. With the new leased update version of Skyfire 4.0, allowing users to utilize social networking apps with their floating “SkyBar” on the bottom, there’s no need to switch apps to Tweet or Like a page. RSS feeds, including Google Reader as well as Groupon and the ever so appreciative Flash Video for Apple users. These are just a few of the amazing options you have with the ‘worlds most social browser’.


As an Android user I prefer the all-in-one browser. Its user interface is nice and its easy to switch from Android view or desktop. For the iPhone/iPad user, the Flash Video makes it easy and fast to watch videos that are sometimes unavailable to users.


Skyfire is FREE in the Android market (with a $2.99 for video license) and $3.99 for iPhone/$4.99 for iPad. Android users are offered a 3 day free ‘video trial’ before the decision of purchasing the lifetime video licensing.
Verizon VCast customers will have free access to video feature as well as the 3 million beta testers who already had downloaded the app.

Skyfire with the Eight New Features makes it not only a powerhouse but number one choice for Android/iPhone/iPad mobile browser use. You ask me, it’s worth the price of a tall coffee from Starbucks.

I have to say, to be in this business and not have your computer is like a construction worker with no tools, a truck driver without a truck, a football player without a footbal, it’s just plain sucks! So when my PC gets the hiccups or decides to crash, contact a virus from its permiscuity of surfing the net, its not a good day in the life of Desiree.

One day I was working on my computer vigiously and suddenly I saw the blue screen of death. My heart stopped, my eyes popped open and the clicking stopped. WTF? No not now! I’m so close to being done and I didnt, yeah, you may have guessed it….I didn’t SAVE yet! I’m sure for some you can sympathize where this is going. It was 4PM on a Saturday and the only place I could think of for computers was the worse place I could think of…BEST BUY! Not to say they can not fix or accomadate a problem, my issue is THEY are EXPENSIVE!

Where the heck was I going to find a computer repair at this hour during the weekend. I couldn’t wait till Monday, I had files ready for the printers, web updates and at that time I was going to school, and finals! Talk about stress. I didn’t have access to the internet without having to go to the local print shop and pay for internet time so I did what any other person would do… I GOOGLEd on my phone. 🙂

*Puff* Lists of computer repair, repair, computers, etc and etc. I began the list of calls. Closed, no answer, too expensive, not friendly, wrong store, no longer open and then on the second page second one down I found him. The one I now have on my speed dial, favorites and admirous adore.

Jim “The Computer Guy“. Now thats not really his business name, but that is what I have him under in my phone. His business name is  A Plus Computer Services.

It was like “AHHhhh” the clouds opened and let the sun shine in. He answered the phone on the second ring – this was good. His voice was chiper and polite – 2 goods and he was willing to discuss my computers problem without even mentioning cost until after we finished our discussion – I’m in!  I’m sure you could see the smile from here to Texas. Talk about a life saver. Not only could I drop my computer off at then, 8pm, his prices were very reasonable.

Jim fixed my computer and returned to me first thing the next day. It was amazing how fast the turnover was, not to mention he also gave me some helpful computer advice (free of charge).

I like Jim.  I’ve moved to Tampa and still have made the trips back to Gainesville whenever I have any mishaps with my computer (yeah, he’s that good) as well as boast to all my peers how wonderful he is.

So a toast to you Jim Q.  My Computer Guy. Much success to you and your business. 🙂
