Flash player for your iPad and iPhone

So I know this is an ongoing issue with our iPhone and tablets regarding flash player or lack thereof. I have an online course that wouldn't play videos cuz apparently it's flash based. What app do u guys have to resolve this issue?

There is no "ongoing issue" other than some websites still haven't upgraded to HTML 5 yet. Adobe retired mobile flash last year.

Ongoing issue. Not hardly. Adobe doesn't even support flash in mobile anymore. They finally conceded that it sucks all around.

I had some training class I wanted to try but was flash only. As flash on iOS at that time I wrote the content provider if they plan alternative solutions as flash would not be supported. They kind of say: later (means no). So I went on and no business for them.
(Mobile) Flash is dead; shoot in the leg by Apple but killed by Adobe.

I don't use anything because I've not come across a site needing a flash player in at least a year.

It is kind of odd, even with no Flash, I have no problems watching clips online, somehow the quicktime on the iPhone does some of the stream conversion. And if you need to use Flash for a website, most the websites I visit have a mobile version. I even prefer not having flash on my iPad, no annoying porno or gaming ads on websites (that includes websites like macrumors and even CNN itself)

Some movie however will use flash as part of the website experience, but I agree most websites today have adapted the fact that people on mobile device won't have flash install (that could be the fact that a good portion of mobile surfing is done on devices that don't have flash)
