CloudBrowse Brings Flash and Java To iPhone (Sort Of)
There is finally a solution, be it makeshift, to viewing Flash and Java content on your iPhone: CloudBrowse from AlwaysOn Technologies. CloudBrowse is a web browser that does all of the "browsing" on a remote server, then ships the results off to you. The app itself is much like a VNC client. If you're familiar with VNC, here's a comparison: imagine your CloudBrowse is a VNC client, but the VNC server you are connecting to is not your own computer, but rather a remote VNC server containing nothing more than a web browser formatted for the iPhone's screen dimensions. In addition, it also streams sound, something that VNC has eternally lacked. You can play almost all Flash content that you could on a normal desktop computer (with the exclusion of Hulu, sorry). Since CloudBrowse essentially streams a video feed of a computer screen to your iPhone, it probably is not intended for 3G/EDGE use, but it works fine on iPhone. A "premium" feature is mentioned on the app's website, though has not been rolled out yet as it is in beta.
CloudBrowse is available on the App Store free of charge.
(For comparison, here is how the above site looks in MobileSafari.)
