I realise that you can't get Flashplayer on iPads, but is there a way around it so I can view Flashplayer videos? I don't want to jailbreak my iPad.

From all the reading I have done, the only way to use Flash on Apple products is to jailbreak. I have decided not to jailbreak mine either.

I hope someone has an answer.. this drives me batty to the point that we're looking into the Samsung Galaxy now as our second tablet.

My kids use an app called iswifter to play flash games, I think it can be used to watch flash movies too. The app is free for 10 minutes to try out, then you can pay for it if you want to keep using it.

The tech guy at the apple store said it wasn't possible, that was the reason we got a Galaxy Tab (which incidentally I'm not 100% happy with, and the follow up service I have received is horrendous).

Apparently it is not the iPad that doesn't allow flash, but it is safari.

I downloaded another browser called "puffin" which allows viewing of flash sites. It was a couple of dollars. I still prefer safari but I use puffin to view flash content.

Ditto the "Puffin" suggestion.

We use it and have no problem with Flash websites.

The Puffin app was free (or maybe 99c) - so definitely worth trying.

I have been googling this and skyfire gets great reviews. $2.99 in the app store.
