    Adobe and Flash

    Question: I've heard people complain about this new version not having Flash or Adobe when everyone figured that would've been one of the upgrades. However, isn't there an App for that? Although I've had all the iPhones this will be my first iPad and since it's being compared to a mini computer I'm wondering how much am I going to miss the Flash and Adobe features.

    no they didnt, and the more you use your idevice the more you'll find you wont miss the lack of flash.

    but, there are browsers for your ipad that semi-over come this non-flash issue to a certain degree. try iswifter, puffin and skyfire for starters.

    They didn't forget to include flash capability with iPad 1 - no reason to believe it will be added any time soon.

    You will miss flash..there are things that require it. However read Steve Jobs article on it and you will know it's not going to happen on iPad! I'm sending emails to sites as I reach them, pleading for them to use something other than flash. My only major irritation is people on this forum telling you you will not miss it. Yea, I can get by without water too,but don't tell me I don't need it.

    Did you know that the iPad didn't support flash before you bought it?

    Yes, and I knew a lot of things didn't have options when they began but demand generally drove changes. Didn't get stuck in a grudge match. I've lived a long time and seen lots of things evolve. This one doesn't seem to be totally based on data.

    Depends on what sites you visit and how tied up you are in all of the glitz. I originally was thinking of getting an iPad shortly after they first came out but I wasn't sure if I would miss the Flash support so I downloaded a plug-in to disable Flash in Firefox to see if I'd miss it. Nope. Firefox also doesn't crash as often since I disabled Flash. I haven't felt the need to re-enable it in almost a year, even though I ended up waiting for the second generation iPad.

    I use Iswifter. It's slow, but it works.
