Newbie to Apple World
I'm a mainly a PC user (user of AutoCAD, Esri, Windows stuff) and am now also an Android user with my Fascinate phone. . Just received an iPad2 this last Christmas, and am having fun learning it. I'm glad that I am now using this OS; I feel that I can round out my computer experience by learning the Apple world. It is also good to learn the tablets since my company is now embracing GIS that I am helping to develop and most likely Apple and Android tablets will be used in the field.
Questions for now:
1) Is there an app available to view Adobe Flash content? There have been many websites that I can't view sections of due to the problem of Flash not being compatible with the Apple Tablet world. I know that once these Flash driven websites are coded into HTML5 that this will no longer be an issue...
2). On the iPad2 pop up keypad, is there a way to delete to the right? Thought by hitting the shift key that it would change the backspace key to a delete key.
Thank you, jeckman

Hi Jeckman-Great intro about yourself.
Regarding work arounds to view flash content-there are a few apps, such as iSwifter that are available. While it shows flash content, it is a bit slow. You may do a quick SEARCH to find numerous threads regarding this subject. About the keypad. You will need to point your finger to the area that you want to delete. You can highlight an area to cut/copy or paste if you need too. Hopefully-some of this helped.

We made this sticky: Flash and the iPad
Essentially, Apple's stance is: Flash isn't happening on the iPad.
