iSwifter Brings Flash Games to the iPad

If you’ve been disappointed that your favorite Facebook, Google+, or other Flash-based games weren’t available on the iPad, iSwifter is your silver bullet–no jailbreaking required.

iSwifter is a $4.99 iPad web browser with built-in Flash support. Install it, browse to any popular flash gaming destination (we tested it with Google+ and Armor Games) and play to your heart’s content. Five bucks is a bit steep in the world of iOS applications but for the price you get a full browser with built-in flash, access to fresh content through iSwifter, optimized games through their partnerships with game providers, and more. Or, to put it in a different perspective, if you play 5 free flash games online that you would pay a dollar each to play, iSwifter is a worthwhile investment.

If you’re hesitant to try out iSwifter sight unseen, you can download it and test it out for 30 minutes before you need to upgrade to the premium version.

    Now all we need is an Android version for those of us stuck on 2.1.

    I wondered how long it would be before 3rd parties jumped on the iOS flash bandwagon. So let’s get this right, Apple won’t use flash but they will gladly take royalties from an app developer and allow someone else to use flash on their devices? What a joke

    Apple probably doesn’t pay Adobe enough for them to focus on developing an iOS version. I’m definitely recommending this to my friends with iPads tho.

    On a serious note, what differences between iPad and iPod/iPhone are there so that the latter two can’t have the same?
