    iSwifter lets iPad access unlimited number of Flash videos and games (exclusive) | VentureBeat


    I've been using it now for a couple of days.. So far it does what it advertises. It's a little bit slower compared to the Safari browser, but it works better than Skyfire, and it's free!

    Download it and share your experiences.

    Tried it. Slow as a molasses pond in the middle of winter. Tapping a hyperlink usually highlights random blocks of text on the page. Text is all screwy... Silly background makes me feel like I'm playing some infant's game.......

    Overall, it's quite a mess at this stage - needs considerable debugging/development......

    There is another thread about this somewhere on this forum and in a reply by the developer they are still working on it so worth hanging on in there and checking out the changes as they happen......also if you have any specific comments it is probably worth emailing the developer and letting them know as you may just get what you wish for.

    Yup must say the background is an irritation.
    Makes me feel about 7.

    I agree that the wallpaper graphic is oddly childlike. Fortunately, once in the browser, we don't have to look at it.

    Here's something that I thought was cool on the developer's part however:

    Always hard to tell how much of our donations get to the cause, but nonetheless, I thought that is was noteworthy enough to mention.

    In the mean time, the iSwifter browser seems to still do what it says it does, albeit, a bit slower than I like, but I won't complain too much about the price. Funny thing is that now that I have the ability to play flash on my iPad, I hardly feel the need to, but it's nice to have just in case I suppose. Its human nature to want something, even if we really don't need it I guess :p

    Btw, for those who found iSwifter slow, there was an update a couple days ago that sped up performance. Also, there is a better, less kid-like icon shown in the update.

    So far, it's handled flash video and flash games with no problems. For those who found it slow, the developer states that it must be used over wifi, and the speed of your ISP and router will determine how fast your browsing experience will be.

    Over my Clear 4G/wifi connection, it works fine. I also used it on Starbucks wifi yesterday, and also worked fine. Just some added info for those who didn't already know.

    Hats off to the dev for making a well designed flash app for free, with the option to buy for a very reasonable 2.99, of which proceeds go towards Japan's relief efforts.

    This app won't play some sites (channel 5) from the uk as it doesn't kite the region! Does anyone know of other app's that maybe useful?

    Thanks

    I use a popular online bridge site, BridgeBase Online, which relies on Flash and does not work with some of the other options I have tried, like Skyfire, but it works without a problem with iSwifter.

    So far, this app has played flash videos on sites that Skyfire couldn't. So, I am well pleased with it. Nice to have a go-to app when (if?) I need Flash access.

    However...

    I haven't got the opp-up to pay, yet. And I've run a video a lot longer than a minute. Anyone else have this happen? It's worth the price to me...
