    Puffin Browser has shown up in the App Store and claims to playback flash content and even flash games. It says it is using remote servers so I would guess means it is similar to Skyfire but found the claim about online flash gaming a little too far.
    Has anyone any experience with this yet?

    It supports flash content, which is not supported by Skyfire, this is important for me because most websites from suppliers use flash for their product cataloque. I didn't try games. It is faster than Skyfire and flash content is nice integrated in the webpage and not in a new window.

    I would highly recommend this app, even in it's early stage, I stumbled upon this app looking for 'cloud browse' another cloud based browser that supports flash, but unfortunately 'cloud browse' is only for US and Canadian users and like the above comment it supports true flash not like skyfire at all (and I would know as I own skyfire) yes it's a little slow, needs improvements, and flash game integration but the core features all here. It's also universal so u can use it on iPad and iPhone by only paying once and it's only 59p and yes u get real flash :) this app really needs support because the more money they make the more time they will take to improve it.

    I bought Puffin a couple of months ago and was not thrilled with it. But they recently did an upgrade and the strolling is better it is faster. The video are pretty good. I tried to play bejewel blitz on it and no you can't play well but there is a bejewel app so that is fine. It has improve so much that I plan to use it for my main browser.

    I downloaded it a few days ago with the express intention of hopefully viewing flash on sites like BBC and so forth. Nadda. No works. This means it's just another browser.
