How Do You Play Adobe Flash Player Content For Iphone 4S?.

Question Posted Wednesday June 27 2012, 12:38 am

As you no doubt know Adobe's Flash Player doesn't work with Apple products for video or streaming audio. I'm told there are ways around this to see Flash Player content or listen.

I've heard of Skyfire but would prefer something FREE from a TRUSTWORTHY place as I have no idea if Skyfire will work for me after paying or not. What I'm trying to do is open IndyCar's web site (Google the address as they forbid us putting links in questions) and hitting the button marked "Timing And Scoring" where it mentions Toronto. Once there I have to click Play under Radio Broadcast. There's no live program to test it on but you might be able to tell me if it will work with whatever Flash fix you recommend.

Hi there,

Nobody forbid you putting links in your questions... people are forbidden to spam the site with advertising links. As long as your aren't spamming something, you are golden.

The answer you seek is contained in the first result in google fro the phrase:

Flash on an Iphone 4S

To further eliminate guesswork, the app is called Photon.

Here is a link to the app:

There is no native Flash support on the Apple IOS products, which I often wonder how seriously Apple regrets.

Their desire to force you to do their will, and bend the entire internet the way they want it... simply because their hardware wasn't enough to run flash (which they discovered WAY too far into the development cycle to do anything about) left the door open for other smartphone makers.

If Apple wouldn't have pulled this bonehead play, I doubt the android phones would have ever had a chance.

Hopefully, the iPhone 5 will be allowed to run flash natively. They would have to license it from Adobe and code it themselves at this point, so don't hold your breath, but there is always hope, right? :-)

Anyway, until then, things like Photon are what iPhone/iPad users are forced into using.

Please let me know how you do with this, and what app you decide to use/works for this situation when it is all said and done.

All the best!

P.S. As a faithful user of the site, feel free to add me on Skype, so the next time you need something like this, you will have a direct way to contact me.
