  • You really CAN HAZ flash on your iDevice!


    Developer Lida Tang from Boston has found a solution for flash on Apple devices. It's quite ingenious actually considering Steve Jobs' disdain for flash. This app is called Cloud Browse and has been available in the App Store for several weeks now with more than 150,000 downloads. When you browse to a website within the app there is actually a third party server accessing the site and streaming the content back to your iPhone! The frame rate is a bit slow but usable.. and there's even audio. A premium beta is in the works that will speed up the frame rate but is reported will cost $9.99 monthly. The one site that does NOT work is Hulu as they actively block access. I have gone to a few sites and it works pretty well.

      You guys are sleeping on a great application that's currently free. Flash video does stutter a little bit the websites load in SECONDS. For example, IGN.com loaded in about 5 seconds on my iPhone 3G. There's not a mobile phone on this planet that can load IGN's full website with its native browser in a matter of seconds. He's probably charging $10 because of his server costs. This app is going to be a hit. I will buy this before PWNTUNES, and you guys raved over that.

      HAHAHAHA... the fact that you've been a member here forever and actually clicked that link is EXACTLY why I have it. Do you realize how annoyed we get with people asking for the 3.1.3 unlock over and over and over and over (should I go on?) without doing a Google or forum search?

      For everyone complaining about the cost.. you're not reading. The current version will always be free with the OPTION of a premium version with better frame rates. Calm down people.

      People are funny.... the same one that complain that there is no flash are the same ones that complain that this Cloud Browse is not good enough or worth it. Those that need flash on the iPhone will use it! I say its mighty great to have it.

      Although I'm sure someone on this site will make a hack - thanx again 3G unrestrictor!
      Hulu cannot broadcast to mobile devices because of copyright issues. You can thank the copyright holders for that one.

      Haha right, but there are a lot out there, which just yelling they want Flash, because it's nice to run with the crowd, but not having their real own opinion.

      I wish it worked for netflix. I guess since it is a linux platform netflix doesn't want to work with it. I rarely find myself needing to view flash sites but this would be good in a rare event that I do.

      It's really not that bad of an app for what it does, of course it lags a little but it works good enough, quit acting spoiled, thanks for informing us of this app, it's real useful for watching videos on sites in which the imobilecinema plugin doesn't work (which is almost all of them)

      I found this app a few weeks ago.
      The wife loves it as she can now watch her foreign films (hong kong movies) on her iphone. They are all in flash.

      This was also a deterrent in buying the iphone...she can't watch her shows...but now she can...perhaps she will get an ipad now...

      You would have to open up safari every time you'd want to use flash.. so what's the difference in using this browser instead?

      A quick tip to everyone who doesnt want to pay $10 a month. If you email the company whos page it first pops up on(click on the support tab) and ask to try the beta of premium account, theyll let you and only require you to pay 5.99 for as long as you have app beta or not. About half the price makes all the difference
