New York - iPhone and iPads will finally stream web video in the Adobe Flash format, thanks to an app appearing on Thursday in Apple's App Store,

CNN Money reported

.

Apple said it doesn't support Adobe Flash in the iPhone and iPad because the technology drains batteries too quickly and doesn't perform well on mobile devices, but the new $2.99 app from Skyfire gets around the restriction by using Skyfire servers to translate the video into HTML5, which is supported by the Apple devices.

 Skyfire offers a similar app for Android smartphones. Flash viewing is possible without the app on Android phones using the Android 2.2 OS.
