However today we have a fantastic work around for you that will let you play Flash content on your iPad, whether it's a game or movie, without having to jailbreak! Read on to find out how. What Devices Does This Work On?:

  What You Need:   Steps

  • Step 3: Dismiss the message and browse to any website of your choice. The app will automatically let you interact with Flash content. You can play games by using the in-app keyboard or tapping on the screen which acts as a mouse click. You can even go to sites like Vevo and view music videos, it's that easy.

  Conclusion: Using iSwifter is a great way to browse Flash content on your iPad; the app basically allows you to control a web browser in the cloud which not only gives you the ability to access US only content but also make use of a desktop web browser's features. I was successfully able to play a game on and watch videos on Vevo quite smoothly. Remember though, since this is a remote web browser you're accessing, it is not really advisable to log in to websites, however the choice is yours. If you're looking for a way to access Flash content on iOS, this is the best way to do it. Alternatively if you're only interested in video you could always use SkyFire for iPhone or iPad, which works with most sites.
