Skyfire 3.0.1 for Android adds minor, but important updates


Skyfire has released version 3.0.1 of its popular web browser for Google Android. As you might suspect from a point release, there aren’t a ton of huge differences between Skyfire 3.0 and Skyfire 3.0.1, but there are a few new features that should make the Skyfire experience a bit better — especially for users running Android 2.2 and up.

Scan to download

For one thing, you can now move the app to your SD card, freeing up several megabytes of storage on your phone. This feature isn’t supported on Android 2.1 and earlier. Another Froyo-only feature is support for file uploads from within the browser.

All users should also benefit from the other two updates: Crash reporting capabilities and the ability to continue app downloads in the background and receive system tray notifications when they’re complete.

Skyfire 3.0.1 for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market.
