Is there any way to correct the iPad's deficiency and lack of Flash?
mobile flash has been killed by Adobe already.
- Most videos just work for iPhone / iPad / any smartphone / tablet via HTML 5.
- A lot of previously all flash sites have been redesigned with HTML5 already
- I haven't encountered any problem with "missing Flash plugin" for a long time, at least since the past year after mobile Flash was discontinued.
You can try puffin browser
What do you need flash for?
Unfortunately, many medical eBook sites still require Flash - LWW thePoint, Rockwood Solution, and Wiesel's OTiOS come to mind. I would love a workaround for these...
So is the website itself flash and you need flash to download the eBook? Or are the eBooks themselves flash-based, which makes no sense to me? Or something else?
If it's the first, you could easily download them from your computer, load them into iTunes, and then just sync with your iPad
There are plenty of sites where the videos do not work. Lets not pretend that its not a real issue.
The only alternative is to use another browser.
It should be a real issue if you own a website, especially if you get a lot of traffic from mobile devices. Consider how much traffic comes from iOS, which can't use Flash out-of-the-box. Suddenly, your 'customers' aren't able to view your content, and may leave. Would that be an issue to you?
The books are displayed in an adobe flash interface; you need flash to turn pages and view the actual content.
Even Android tablets going forward (Jelly bean onwards) have opted to no longer support flash. (Yes it can be installed manually, but is no longer being updated and there will come a point to fails to work on devices with updated OS software).
Sadly OP if you need some access to flash content then try skyfire browser, but as for integrated flash into an application, not a chance.
Maye they will issue them eventually as embedded / enhanced ebooks, but otherwise currently no workaround would do this.
Skyfire browser suppose to play flash.
I have no experience with it.
Try any of the following browsers:
Finally, OnLive Desktop has the best quality for video streaming in my experience but requires a subscription. Since you're looking to view books the above should be adequate.
Hope that helps!
Thank you for your responses.
Flash is the elephant in the room. It is a problem on many sites.
pron requires it....so I have heard....
Fortunately the pron sites I frequent dumped flash long ago.
