    This is my first post, I would like to purchase an Ipad 3 but have been told that it will not view certain web pages, because it has no flash player.

    I visited my local Currys store today, they say that the problem has now been solved, he showed me three different sites, Thompsons holidays, Mercedes cars and Auto Trader all of which seem to work ok. So where is the problem?

    They say that if you want to say change the colour of the car in new car configerator this might not work, but I did not try this.

    I understand that an Android device is the one to use, but I like the Ipad.

    Thanks for any help anyone can give in enabling me to understand the flash problem if there is one.

    I mean any thing that flash required witch it's strafing to get smaller the things that use flash but I don't think it's a deal breaker not being able to do certain things but....


    There is a way to do flash you need to install iswifter and if you really need to do some thing flash well there you go so you should not be worried at all

    Flash is dying anyway. Not a big deal.

    You can get by without flash. Most sites now support HTML 5.

    I swifter app only works in a wifi area btw not 3G, a lot of sites do still use flash and html5 is only really just catching on in my opinion but thankfully many flash game websites are now producing apps to play there games also, more websites in the future may just offer iPad alternatives to their flash sites because they can make more money off the apps....... That's my opinion anyway lol
