    Developer AlwaysOn Technologies has managed to do the unthinkable: bring Flash to the browsing experience on the iPhone OS with Cloud Browse.

    Cloud Browse is a clever app that employs the use of remotely streaming a desktop browser to your device. This remote computer is fully flash and java enabled allowing you the access and opportunity to view the web like you would on your desktop computer. You have full multitouch pinch capabilities to zoom in and out of sites as well as flick scrolling as you would with mobile Safari. The only difference is you now have that coveted access to flash enabled sites to view animation and play games.

    The free app store download has already been removed.

    Makes sense, they don't want flash. Not hard to understand.

    The minute I saw this is the minute I snagged it. It pays to be on your toes.

    However, HTML5 essentially does the same thing doesn't it?

    Why does CloudBrowse have a notice on their Web site thats says they’ve "stopped accepting new users to ensure the quality of service for existing users?”

    Looks like they may have pulled their own app from the App Store. :rolleyes:

    Edit:

    "Why isn’t Cloud Browse in the App Store?

    We have voluntarily pulled the app from the store due to finding a bug that prevents keyboard from being used. We have fixed the problem and a new update will be coming soon!”

    Why is everything with the App Store a damn conspiracy?

    How is this different from the nearly 2 dozen RDP and VNC apps that also let you view a browser running on a remote desktop computer from your iPad? All of them are still available in the App store.

    A few of them (Wyse PocketCloud for one) also allow you to zoom in and control the browser window directly.

    You can essentially do the same thing from any of the remote control computer applications.

    Like I said in the other threads posted about this yesterday, I would NEVER browse using this. You're remoting into someone else's browser and using it. They can capture and store everything you're doing. Just install VNC on your own computer and achieve the same thing.

    The whole "app being pulled" thing is just a stunt for publicity and attention.

    Unless you are using a remote App on a LAN the video playback quality will not be acceptable, maybe 2 FPS if that. Even on a LAN it won't look that good and you will be tying up a web browser on another system.

    The thin client apps for the iPad that facilitate flash are optimized for it, while RDP and VNC aren't.
