After downloading Puffin, I prefer it now and its only 99 cents! Not sure about video playback just yet but sites have much better image quality for flash and less page lag than Photon (while in Flash mode). Photon reminds me of a photo taken of an ad online while in flash mode. Resolution from server is not as good as Puffin or iSwifter.
It requires you to manually adjust the bandwidth for perfect clarity. That was your issue. There are 5 button settings to choose from.
Regardless, Flash on the ipad is not optimal by any means. It's one reason I am glad I have my Touchpad.
thanks il give those a look. its nothing i absolute need, it would just be icing on the cake with my new ipad. just curious of whats out there. thanks!
