    Some third-party browsers 'sort of' support Flash by hosting the content on their web site. They can be satisfactory in some limited situations - results are mixed and members views are divided.

    Have a look here - but also search the Forum - there are many, many threads and posts about Flash and browsers....

    Many of the popular web application sites have iPhone and/or iPad apps. If the sites don't mention them, then a search in the App Store may turn something up.

    There are one or two Weight Watcher apps for the iPad, and more for the iPhone. The iPhone ones won't look as nice on the iPad, but you could still use them.

    Tim,
    Thank you for the article reference from Apple (Steve Jobs) about Flash. That really made things clear for me. I only have to use Flash for some training courses I have to take as they are all flash. I do use Puffin browser when I have to take those training courses in Flash. I use Terra browser most of the time. I like Safari on my iMac, but since it has no tabs on iPad, I don't use it most of the time.

    Excellent advice! This is not even a work-around but an actual solution. Thanks for the insight.

    Thanks for your post. I installed Puffin and really like it. I have one question that you might know the answer to - I have tried to watch a video clip on Facebook. When I select the video it first brings up the flash player symbol. If I touch that the video will play but with no sound. Any experience with that? Thanks so much for your help!

    Just added Puffin. Tried ITV Player and it doesn't. The reason is, I think, browsing the help/faqs, it diverts to web accelerator sites outside the UK so the ITV think you're non-UK even if you are.

    It does play mp4 video streams from ubuweb which is what I wanted. So does iSwifter but I can't fathom this browser's settings. Where's the menu? Oh Puffin was only 59p, what the hell.
