    I know we have discussed this to death, however to not be able to follow some of the news strings, so important right now...makes me crazy! Forget about my on line shopping, card shopping. I so love my iPad till I hit that wall that comes more and more often. Is there a hope out there.

    I have the Skyfire app for the heck of it but just don't end up coming up againt Flash sites when I'm using my iPad, so I can't even report if it's made a difference for me. I'm out with my iPhone that has the data plan on it, so that has gotten over three , now nearly four years of me looking up things in iOS with no Flash. A handful of times it has come up while using my iPhone, but since with my iPad, (November 2010) I can't make a Flash dependent site emerge to save my life just to see. It obviously is based on whatever we all are viewing.
    Have you tried one of the remote log in apps?

    There are so many news apps available that I don't ever have to go to a browser for news--except when someone posts a link on this forum. I have always thought that if I wanted to get news from various sources, there is an app for that source. Here is a picture of all the news apps that I have on my iPad.

    I also have a folder for financial apps that keep track of specific equities and these apps provide news links too. I hate to think of myself as a news junkie but equipped with all of these apps I haven't felt left out! :D

    We had a similar problem as my partners sister from the Philippines* lives and works in Libya like Matt above I have as many if not more News apps. I also have an an App which has all the Philippine newspapers so we were able to read articles 7 /24 about any country in the world. What floods,cyclones in Australia then earthquake in NZ plus the middle east conflicts the papers have been full of it. We do not use browsers any more for news just the Apps. As for on line shoppin again many apps are available. Hope that helps. This is just 1 of 2 folders I have.

    Damn I have my news sites loaded into Pulse for fast scanning.
    Try Puffin browser for flash. Sometimes it works :)

    I like pulse as well But the courier mail, Queensland's daily is one of the best newspapers I have used. Cost $9 per month and worth it
