    Hi all.

    Does anyone know of a good App that is capable of playing Flash content media.

    I have searched the Apps store but when reading the comments posted by users, they are critical. I would sooner go by comments from this forum.

    Regards

    The iPad does not support Flash, but have a read of this.

    How to Play Flash Content on Your iPad
    There are many circumstances when being able to play Adobe Flash media on your iPad would be great. While officially the iPad does not support any Flash, the iPad apps below are designed to play Flash content on the iPad. Basically, these apps transcode the Flash on a remote server, then hopefully send the playable content back to your iPad. Lag time can be a challenge though, due to the time needed to convert the Flash content and return it to your device. None of the iPad apps listed below guarantees the content you want will play, but all are worth exploring.
    You might try:
     iSwifter (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iswifter/id388857173?mt=) – free
     Photon Flash browser (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photon-flash-web-
    browsertabbed/ id430200224?mt=8) - $4.99
     Puffin Web Browser (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/puffin-web-
    browser/id406239138?mt=8) - $.99
     Skyfire Web Browser (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyfire-web-browser-
    foripad/id409153623?mt=8) - $4.99

    Thanks OB

    I will have to give it a thought after reading your report and possibly give a couple of your suggested apps a go just to see how effective or not they are.

    I have Photon. It's a bit wonky but I think all of them are if they play Flash. It's fine though.
