    Ipad works with flash???

    I am a commercial pilot and is the moderator of a website by our airline named magicofflight.com. Now we are always on the fly, I prefer something lighter than a laptop, when i heard about ipad. So my doubt is whether ipad can display flash video embeds on the site because our site will play videos on jw player.
    Please explain. This is what is holding me from buying the ipad.
    Thanking you in advance,
    Vishnu

    Flash is a resource hog and does not work well with any tablet. For those who have to use flash, my suggestion is to get the new 11" MacBook Air. It will do flash, is lightweight, and able to do a lot of functions that a tablet won't. The disadvantage is that you cannot get built-in 3G service. You have to get a dongle or wifi hub for that.

    the ipad (or any ipod) wont naturally play Flash at all, but the browser called Skyfire does a decent job of conversion.

    Flash Player

    With all the technology that Apple has there must be some way to install flash player in the IPad and IPhone.

    not until Apple allows it there's not and so far they say no, and have said no with iOS since 2007.

    Every other platform has a tablet coming out within the next couple of months, the first being under two weeks away from launch, that plays flash videos flawlessly even at 1080p. Webos, blackberry and android. There are videos all over YouTube showing this off.

    Apple doesn't play flash because Steve jobs wants to sell videos through iTunes, games through the app store and force websites that use flash to create apps to support his ecosystem. The performance issue is something that people use to cover for apple being the ONLY platform that blocks it.

    I think 'flawlessly' isn't quite the right term here.
    I have friends with Android-tablets who always complain that flash drains their batteries faster than they can recharge, that the tablet gets extremely hot when they use flash and that overall the performance of flash is comparably poor.

    So, it might run, but it just wasn't made for tablets.
    I'm not Mr. Jobs' best friend, but he really has a point in not permitting flash on the iPad.

    He never said anything about the current market Android tablets, he said the new tablets coming in the next couple weeks to couple months. The new ones are considerably more powerful and will handle Flash content very well.

    This article "On Apple's iPad, HTML5 and Flash" might give you some more thoughts.
