    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 use the Puffin browser for anything that requires flash.

    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)
