Adobe Flash – Not For Tablets

I am always asked about Adobe Flash on tablets.

Adobe Flash does not run on the iPad or Android tablets nd Adobe will only allow access to Flash on Android devices that already had Flash Player installed and will not support Flash from Android 4.1 onwards.

Adobe implemented this from Aug 15th 2012 – you can read their press release HERE

If you are looking at watching TV or playing certain games , on your iPad or Android device, which on a computer you would watch or play through the internet browser , you will need to go to their app and or download the game and not use the internet browser.

The browser is what is reminding you to install Flash – this cannot be done now.

There are some ways to watch flash on these tablets but with the constant changes to software , they may not be a long term or satisfying solution.
