Puffin browser for iOS updated for faster Adobe Flash delivery, adds virtual gamepad for Flash games
One of the most popular 3rd party iOS browsers Puffin just got updated with a much-improved Adobe Flash support. The web-based streamer now serves Flash content like video websites and games faster, smoother and with diminished impact on battery life.

Not only that, but Puffin also got the ability to map arrow keys to an onscreen gamepad for playing Flash games, in case the one you particularly like doesn't have an equivalent in the App Store.

The price of Puffin stays $2.99, and there is a free trial version to check out before you take the plunge - not a bad amount to pay if you want to outmaneuver Steve Jobs' feud with Adobe and its Flash creation, which is still used widely for video and games on the web.

It's very nicer, faster, and smoother than safari. And it also supports flash. But noe thing I notice is that the hd vedio played through it is not really that hd.
