    It's effectively a flash enabled browser and it gets better with each iteration. It was initially designed for people to play their Facebook games like FarmVille.

    For the iPhone the best I've found is photon. But it's not great.

    I agree that the world is turning away from flash. But I subscribe to a football service so u can listen to my teams live games, these are not available using digital radio packages as its copyright and the service only uses flash so iswifter has been brilliant for me.

    Keith have you tried it ?

    I haven't nope!

    Nothing I go to uses flash any more and if I do see something and it uses flash, I go elsewhere these days so Flash is a complete non-issue for me BUT I can see why it's useful when there are still places that use it.

    Are any of the other primetime channels apple friendly? I wanted to watch H*ll's Kitchen yesterday and it wouldn't let me. So, I'm guessing the Fox channel is not friendly.

    Me too! :thumbsup:

    ABC is as long as you have their free player app installed. CBS also seems to be OK. Not sure about TNT, USA or any of the other cable networks.

    Tom :)macwave:... not a Flash fan...)

    Now I just have to be patient and wait for a couple of weeks for it to be delivered! :toetap:

    But if this keeps up, much like the "Dish of the Day", I'm going to have to pop off and kill myself. :brickwall:
