How To Play Flash Games On An Apple IPad

Before the iPad had come out, it was believed that it would have the capability of being able to play flash related content. While it seemed that one could view flash on the iPad, it is not the case. It was criticized by both Adobe and Wired. And in this respect, one cannot initially watch YouTube and some other similar websites because they all use flash. According to Adobe, Apple has taken out flash capability in order to get users to buy content through the iTunes store. But, there are a lot of different methods in which flash related content could be viewed. In fact, there are two main methods you can take depending on what type of iPad you have.

For example, if you have a ‘jailbroken’ iPad, then you can download and run the application that is known as Frash. However, keep in mind that it is far from being perfect. This is an application that is continuously being refined and tweaked. But still you are able to play flash based games through Frash.

For any iPad, one of the main applications you want to get would be iSwifter. The great news is that Apple has approved it. With the help of iSwifter application you will be able to play flash.

All you have to do is to download and run iSwifter into your iPad. However, keep in mind that iSwifter has some limited capabilities. And thus there are still some downsides to using iSwifter.

However, the great news is that this application is free to download.

In fact, these are only two methods that could be used to play flash based games on your iPad. But still there is a hope that in future Apple will find a solution to this problem.
