Both iPad and iPad 2 are amazing tablets and offer stunning web browsing experience. However, it would not take you a lot of time to find out that it is not compatible with Flash. It amazes me why Apple did not ask Adobe for a flash plugin for iPad. Fortunately, there are some solution, but let me warn you, they are still no match for the standard flash support in case for desktop computers. Here are few ways to get flash on your iPad.
1) Frash – This is the most popular way of getting flash on your iPad. How do you install Frash on your iPad or iPad 2? The simplest way is to get the Frash.deb file from the link below directly on your Mobile Safari browser of iPad. Download it to your documents and install it with iFile.
2) Second most popular way is by installing an app called Skyfire from AppStore. This app costs 5 dollars.
So, Frash or Skyfire? Well, Frash is ARM flash plugin ported from other platforms. As a result, this option allows you to even interact with Flash content. On the other hand, Skyfire is good only for watching flash videos.
Also, did I mention that Frash is free? Yes, Frash is free of cost. On the other hand, Skyfire costs you some dollars and is limited implementation of Flash.
Last difference but certainly not the least is the privacy. In case of Skyfire, all the web data is processed on the Skyfire’s servers before they are sent to your iPad. While in case of Frash, everything is downloaded and processed directly on your iPad.
