    Another cloud based server conversion company has a product for the iPad that converts flash to html on the fly and sends it back to the iPad. They already have browsers for Symbian, Android and Windows Mobile. Their App has been submitted to Apple and is waiting for Approval.

    How long does approval usually take? Or is this dead in the water? I can't seem to find any information on it other than it was submitted. It's a deal maker or breaker for me...if I can't get a decent flash experience on an iPad then I'm out.

    I used Skyfire on Windows Mobile. I was under the impression it used Flash Lite. It worked really well. I never tried video or anything intensive with it, but it worked great for menus and website navigation items that were done in flash.

    I don't understand why there can't be a 'hack' like Gordon installed into the iOS that sends any flash over to the native JavaScript that exists within the iOS already. Can we get an app for that??

    Now available for iPad...but you can't write comments to this forum. I had to use Safari to write this note. Also the speed bar isn't available and I like it for the 13 most frequently visited sites.

    I did visit one site that had embedded flash and it performed as advertised.

    Downloaded this last night. Find it to be slower than Safari, kind of disappointed. Anybody else download it?
