    Hi,
    I want to access flash content from web site. Is there any browser who runs flash content on ipad?

    I have tried puffin, but puffin comes with 15 days trial period of flash support. Is there any freeware software to run flash content.

    Interesting read... even read the memo "Thoughts on Flash" that Steve Jobs wrote and now have a fuller understanding on why flash isn't on iOS devices. Thanks for the links!

    There are several Flash enabled browsers. They all work similarly to Puffin, in that they actually run the site on a remote server and re-display the content to the iPad.

    Just search for Flash Browser in the app store. One or two of them are free. but I've yet to see a free Flash browser that was any good. If it's important to you, pony up the cost of the browser. Developers need to make a living too.

    I like Puffin, mostly because it's versatile control options; important if you're going to Flash sites that have non-standard controls, or are games. I understand Photon is pretty good too.

    Read the descriptions carefully. Some browsers with Flash in their name aren't Flash capable.

    Note: Because Flash browsers have to run on a remote server, there are some privacy concerns. Another reason to pick a more reputable app and developer. Even then, I wouldn't use make any sensitive or financial transactions in a Flash browser on iOS.
