sold out skyfire

After 2 months of wait, to get approve by Apple,  skyfire 2.0 was finally available in the App Store.  You read it right, it “was” available because after hitting top gross in the App Store in just 5 hours and exceeded their expected projection, its now sold out.

Thus we are effectively ‘sold out’ and will temporarily not accept new purchases from the App Store.  We are working really hard to increase capacity and will be accepting new purchases from the App Store as soon as we can support it.
