    Hi, I'm looking for a mobile device to mainly use for web browsing. I will be be using it for a certain specific website which is completely based on flash and its quite a heavy flash app that runs on the browser. Does the iPad supports flash contents in the browser? And does it gets the desktop websites rather than mobile sites?

    iOS does not support flash, however I do find that most the time the iPad uses the 'full' version of a website.

    tbh, Adobe has dropped flash from on android as well, so your options are limited in terms of what tablets will support flash.

    You'll need a win8 pro tablet, or find a android tablet that you can sideload flash but the flash on android wasn't great (instability issues and ate up your battery).

    iOS has never supported Flash and at this point likely never will.

    As for the desktop v mobile site issue, that depends on how the site is coded
