Meh...i don't think many of us care ab out flash anymore... at least i don't, i kinda grew out of that flash thing. just use the iphone for everything else, how often you gonna watch some flash content?? Maybe if ur a college kid, otherwise, day job can keep you quite busy! Of course, to each their own.

Maybe you use iPhone for everything else because you cant use flash. If you can't pull it up, you don't know what your missing.

One of the biggest complaints about the iPhone and iPod touch since their inception has been their inability to play Flash videos.but now every one can watch vedio on iPhone, iPad & iPodTouch .

Well first of all the only ones that will download the app are iSheep as you said, but no ... flash is no awesome ... i personally never had the "need" of flash ... i i wont have that need it's that simple everyone wined about flash cuz of youtube ... now everybody can play youtube videos from sites and it's easy and don't require flash ... so play your flash videos on you Android device and be nice...

To be honest, I don't miss flash either! I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about!
YouTube videos work, who honestly cares about banners?

We know you don't miss flash, you do whatever your leader Steve Jobs tells you to do, he doesn't like flash so you don't like flash. If Steve Job sent you text, for you and all other fanboys to commit mass suicide, 90% of you idiots would do it.

Haha and this is why apple refuses to allow flash. The ifanboys sure did a lot of s**t talking about how "laggy" android is and yet look at this! Sure the fanboys will make any excuse they can, like how this isn't official, this isn't adobe flash blah blah blah but the bottom line is the iphone isn't good enough to handle flash.

This is an app so it doesn't reflect the iPhone's performance.

@rory. No phone is good enough to handle flash. And yes, this is exactly the reason why Apple won't allow flash NATIVELY on their iphone and ipad. It causes lag, instability, and vulnerabilities. It also holds up updates when Adobe takes a while to get their act together in compliance to a software update, making the EOM look bad, when it's actually Adobe who's taking forever to makes things work. So thanks, but no thanks.

No phone is? Apparently you have never used or even looked at someone using a SGS2. The phone handles heavy flash with ease, no stutters, no lags, no hang ups. But sure, maybe compared to the little tiny iphone, the SGS2 is a tablet lol.

I use the Puffin browser for my main browser. I have not experience any of the problems that the reviewer is writing about. I think it is about your internet connection. I have a good connection and my browser is fast and smooth. The videos play flawlessly just as well as my netbook. I have an iphone 4 and ipad 1 and I use the browser for both.

Why would I need flash when I have a MacBook Pro? ;-) Boo ya! But seriously....how is it unusable? If it works....it works.

I have been using this browser on both iPhone and iPad and have not had any problems the reviewer speaks of. The few times I want to view a flash video I use this browser.

This video shows that Android 1 ghz phones can handle flash a f**k-load better than iPhone.
