As Adobe says that its flash player won't work 'with this device' is there a suitable alternative?

Others might have different ways but this is what I do. Use a Browser where the page loads on a Cloud server. The server has the flash and renders the page then passes it to the browser. If you are interested I will check my iPad and see what I use for that. It works quite well. I can play any Flash game that way.

Adobe is correct though, no Flash on the iPad itself.

Thanks. Perhaps I should explain the problem. I am, by default, the webmaster for our village website. On the iPad I can only see text and downloads etc are all missing. It's not a major problem for me as I have the source material but it would be useful to be able to access the website in full viewing mode.

There is no "Flash" on any iOS nor Android device.

If you want your site fully accessible to these operating systems, then you're going to need to move your site away from using flash.

Or else you make everyone wanting access to do what you are now doing - want access bad enough that they will google or come to a forum to find out how they can view flash content on those devices. How many will want to get to your site bad enough to do that?

Cloud Browse has been around the longest - no longer free either - will your customers pay to get to your site?
Photon is another - haven't used it in awhile.
Flash is bad news if you want mobile devices to be able to view/use your site.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I'm not even going to get into the SERIOUS security issues Flash has -- I keep it on my Mac browsers and have to update it 2-3 times a MONTH to stay current. Some days I think the developers of Flash and Java got into a bet about how many times they could push security updates -- and at the moment Flash is winning!

If at all possible, move away from Flash for typical website stuff. Not only will this help users of older machines visit your site without bogging down, but you avoid a ton of issues like the one you're here for.
