Frash: Adobe Flash Now On iOS

July 4, 2010

Apple won't allow Flash on its iDevices. They have their reasons and by now we've learned to live without it. Yet, some tenacious folks just can't let go and have come up with the most clever workarounds.

Usually the workarounds are web-based and not very robust, The latest trick is, however, quite different. Brought to you by @comex, the guy behind the Spirit Jailbreak, it's a port of Adobe's own native mobile Flash plugin. Specifically, the plugin Adobe recently released for Android-based smart-phones. It works directly in Mobile Safari (but requires that you jailbreak your iPhone). Stunned? Wait until you see how well it performs too:

As you can see, it only runs on the iPad for now, but support for the 3GS and iOS4 is on the way. It will be made available to the general public as soon as it's deemed stable enough by its creator. In my opinion, to make its point, this is what Adobe should have done a long time ago.

In the meantime, comex invites developers to come help him out on GitHub.

How do you feel about it? Antidote, or poison?
