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.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
