Use Photon Flash Browser to play your favorite Facebook games on your iPad

Photon - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

One of the most annoying (or most genius, depending on your outlook) decisions Steve Jobs made was to not support Flash on Apple devices. Now, some people will immediately jump up and down and say that he was right because Adobe isn’t supporting Flash for mobile anymore. But whichever side of the Flash battle you are on, there is still a lot of web content that relies on it to function properly: specifically games, and in particular Facebook games.

Most Facebook games are designed to be complete time wasters. I’ve tried a lot of them in my day, and right now I really only play one of them. That one is called Battle Pirates, and like most of the other ones, it is based around social networking and time. It doesn’t matter what kind of a game it is, there is always a time aspect to it. In Battle Pirates it takes time to upgrade and build your ships, upgrade your base, or research new technology. When you get to the higher levels some of the things can take more than 10 days to complete. Because of this I tend to know when that particular item will be done, and will want to start my next one right away. If I’m not near a computer, then I just have to wait until I get home. Photon Flash Browser will allow me to check my game when I’m just out and about with my iPad.

The Photon Flash Browser was just updated a couple days ago, and the update greatly improved an already good app. There is a lot of other web content other than games that you can view, and the Photon browser does it all well. If you are on the side of the fence that embraces Flash, you might want to give this app a try. Normally it costs $9.99, but there is currently an Olympic sale and you can get this browser for only $4.99.
