    Good day, Bought an I-Pad 3 over the weekend and a docking station, I wanted to set up Radio Stations on the system and when I went to listen live, it keeps coming up with Adobe Flash Player, when I go to download this it does not load for some reason, any ideas please. Twosey

    Flash does not work on the iPad. See this link for more on that subject.

    The best way to listen to radio stations on the iPad is through an app. Most have a long list of streaming radio stations, and the ability to add links to your own (usually obtained from their site).

    The one I use is TuneIn Radio Pro. No idea if it is the best, but it works well enough that I haven't felt the need to look for a better one.

    Try searching "TuneIn Radio" in the app store. I use this to stream live radio stations in my area (and other stations around the world!)

    Tunein Radio Pro and iheartradio are my two favorites. Between them and Sirius/XM, all bases are covered.

    Flash Player does not work on the iPad, iPod, or iPhone due to their smaller amounts of space, and such.
    As other people are saying Tunein Raido, here is the link to the app.

    This is not why Flash doesn't work in iDevices. If you want to know why, there are existing threads on the forum, though.

    Have you tried looking for your favourite radio stations in the app store.Many stations have their own app.

    No. It's because Steve Jobs said no.
