    I do not want Flash in web pages, especially those stupid ads.

    I *do* want the ability to play Flash games and movies that are flash only and will not be changed to other formats.

    There is a lot of good Flash media.

    I am aware Flash is a resource hog and sucks the life of batteries, but as a stand alone player I can control when I want to see it, if I want to see it.

    There's apps out there just for videos and flash games if you search the iTunes store.

    I use Puffin and Vbrowse for flash videos one plays it in the window one doesn't.

    Avoid Iswifter seems to be the only one people have heard of but it's quite poor. Try the ones I recommended or type in the iTunes store as there is dedicated apps for just video and gaming.

    I use puffin and find that it works pretty well. Except that you can't fast forward movies... so if it crashes or you have to stop watching for whatever reason, you have to start from beginning

    Does that work good with Facebook games? That's the only reason I want Flash. But I don't want to pay for the app if it doesn't work well.

    No, it's in the App Store. Check again.

    I figured it out.

    ISwifter is NOT for iPod Touch, nor is Vbrowse. :mad::mad::mad:

    I carry a touch around, Pad is for home.

    Puffin does go for iPT, so loaded that. :D

    ...except the free version is very limited. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
