Has anyone got Skyfire on their iPad?

I'd like to know if the Louis Vuitton website works on it!! Its really annoying that Apple refuse to use Flash when most luxury brands do! Back on topic, is the 3.99 Skyfire App worth buying? I don't need it to watch videos just for interactive flash intensive websites (like Louis Vuitton i guess!). Any help appreciated!

Thanks.

skyfire is ONLY for flash video. it finds flash videos in the site transcode them and gives you a link to play the video. it doesn't give you flash support. the louis vuitton site just tells you that you need flash

Do you know anything about jailbreaking? Pros and cons? Im not really tech minded so don't really want to mess around with its inner workings!!

only real con is the fact you have to wait for the scene to release new jailbreaks after apple release new firmware. its easy to do, plenty of guides and information available.
google redmondpie and take a look at the guides etc on there

And are there any other flash alternatives besides frash? I'm going to try that on the iPad later?

I've just downloaded a free app called swifter and it seems to workn very well even with flash heavy sites. It's initially a bit slow on start up but seems to get quicker as you go along. It even works with the said lv site!

Mail Louis Vuitton and say I will convert their flash site to HTML5 for a free handbag. :)
