    Am new to the forum and iPad. Does anyone know of any other ways currently available to get flash on the iPad, other than the cloud browse app, which has been removed.

    Thanks

    I used Skyfire last weekend watching Ustream flash videos, for many hours without any problems.

    I have had very little success with sky fire. Over 90 pec of the visited sites were not supported by sky fire and in most cases the video does not open up fully to view. I do not know if I am missing a step to view the supported videos.

    I think the only viable method to get flash on the iPad is to setup a pc at home with splashtop, that's going to be my next project.

    A mini pc with wake on LAN, that is hidden behind my tv, then using a WOL app, wake the pc and gain access that way. When done, switch off.

    If your pc is connected all day then it's not a problem, certain people in my house are very "power off appliances" heavy so I need to wake up and switch off otherwise it will just get turned off lol

    This sucks

    This really sucks. For the amount of Money you spend on an Ipad its just plain dumb that we cannot use Flash. I so badly want to read my bassmaster magazine online , but it uses "olive software" which is flash of course (like 99.999999% of the internet world) so of course i cannot.

    I even wasted $5 on skyfire just to check. and nothing. This was a major oversight by steve jobs and he needs his head checked. or atleast allow adobe to SELL a dam app to enable it. why make it so its 100% not possible, it doesnt even make sense.

    Unfortunately it was not an oversight - he knew full well :)

    It is a bust though.

    If you had read more on this forum you would have seen that Skyfire isn't all that ~ and most state it doesn't work well if at all.;)
