    I've been doing countless research on different methods of allowing flash player to play on my iPad but have had minimal results. Has one figured out how to fix this?

    P.s. I've tried Frash & iSwitcher

    Get yourself a VPN like Splashtop.View your desktop remotely is really the best option at this point.

    I appreciate your suggestion. Have you had previous experience with the former? ^^^^

    Skyfire is really bad, it plays about 1% of the flash content on the internet...

    If you have a strong enough wifi connection, splashtop works like a dream.

    Try the puffin browser it plays flash videos but not flash games. It also plays Hulu.

    That's awesome! I've been wanting to use my iPad for hulu. That's so stupid that they try to cockblock you in the regular browser with that hulu+ BS.

    Seems like a lot of bad reviews of bad lag with flash. I'm hesitant to try it, any positive feedback?

    I bought splashtop with high expectations, but it just sucks! The functionality is great, the screen is crystal clear compared to RDP, but the reliablity sucks, it doesnt find my damn computers, any of them. I have to go and restart the app on the windows host manually everytime and that still doesnt work all the time.

    There is some lag with the video. I think it has a lot to do with your internet connection. But the strolling is perfect. iSwifter has the best video but the strolling is horrible. iSwifter recently did an upgrade and i need to check it out . The puffin browser is just 99 cent so give it a try. They do updates often. iSwifter is 1.99.

    I use splashtop all the time to connect to my mac mini and it has worked perfect since I've had it "month".... Only thing I dont like is I have my taskbar autohide and I cant ever get it to "pop up" soooo I have to choose Safari thru applications up top...

    Splashtop is not a VPN, it's like VNC, but it isn't VNC (they use their own proprietary protocol).

    iSwifter is the same kind of thing. If you understand how they work you will expect some lag.

    Thank you, I purchased it and am quite happy with the flash video performance. As a web browser it's horrendous, but I'll only use it for some flash streaming. I've got swifter also and just find it utterly useless most of the time. Puffin was well worth the measly 99 cents though.

    Now if only atomic browser put flash capability in the my search would be over.

    Thanks for all the feedback

    I ended up purchasing 6 Apps to remotely use my desktop and laptop. The best by far is SplashTop. I ran across some trouble at first but now it works like a dream. It runs so fluently and fast. As someone mentioned formally the only problem is that my MacBook dock had to be locked onto the bottom screen in order to be used.


    SplashTop 1.99

    Puffin is awesome, thank you.

    You often hear about browsers boasting flash support and then falling flat. This one actually does, even if its not 100% its the best native option there is.

    I'm guessing that live streaming is probably a bridge too far?

    I'm assuming you didn't try LogMeIn Ignition because of the price. It's by far the best remote control solution IMO.
