Flash for iPad?

  1. Nov 12, 2011 #1
    I have read that Adobe put out software that can help the ipad with flash, by sort of "translating" it in the browser. My problem is, I can't seem to figure out where/how to get this software on my iPad. I'm not even sure what it's called exactly. Anyone know?

    Not possible. Even apps that promote having flash are not true flash, and will only work with certain video sites where it tricks you by coverting the video to iPad format. Games don't work. Your only option is to get the xoom tablet. It doesn't ship with flash, but it will get the feature at some point as the iPad never will.

    Personally, I'm going to tough it out without Flash on my iPad. I think it's just a matter of time before Flash goes the way of the albatross

    In contrast to Skyfire, Frash is iPad flash player free app that, using Frash iPad be transformed in order to run flash, but it would be a bit tricky to install frash on iPad, but if you are familiar with the mac it is not difficult to install flash player for iPad, This is a way to install frash on iPad:
    - Download the file Frash.debipad flash player
    - SSH your iPad
    - Move to the directory: /var/root/Media
    - Go to the Media Directory
    - Create New Folder then named it “Cydia”
    - Open the “Cydia” folder
    - Create New Folder again then named it “AutoInstall”

    Adobe has done quite the opposite actually with Flash actually, and is no longer distributing a mobile version at all.

    I dont think they will ever add the flash feature to the Tablets because no one would buy the phones. then.

    I think they oriented more for gaming and writing or reading.
