    Hi all and thank you so long for your help.

    I have my iPAD for almost 2 weeks now but have noticed that it does not support Flash player. Any advice on this, please?

    Regards,
    Deon

    iOS does not support flash unless you jailbreak it.

    The best option to view flash content is to use the app SplasHTop and view it from a PC on a LAN.

    There are third party browsers that sort of play flash (puffin, iswifter etc) but none of them work particularly well.

    There are some third-party browser around that 'sort of' support Flash, by hosting it on the developer's website and then streaming it to your iPad. These give variable results, depending upon the website or video you're trying to watch. Look at iSwifter (free, limited viewing time version available so you can try-before-you-buy) and Puffin - though there are many others.

    If you want to see Apple's official line on Flash, have a look here

    Thoughts on Flash

    There are numerous threads on iPad Forum about this issue, so have a 'Search' and read some of the Member's thoughts and solutions.

    A sticky may have prevented this thread but since it's here be nice.
    I use Puffin browser for Flash but it depends on what you are doing with it. The story about Macho Mans death played fine for me this morning but many state that videos are choppy or worse. I guess I've just been fortunate or use it during slow periods of traffic

    Good suggestion. And if a thread title bothers you, don't open it.:)

    I thought it was going to be a big issue. It hasn't been, for me at least.

    1. Many sites are HTML5 coded now.
    2. Many sites that would need flash have free, dedicated apps that work w/o Flash.
    3. Skyfire (and some other browsers that I haven't tried) are adequate workarounds for situations not covered by the first two.

    YMMV, of course.
