Adobe® Flash® Player is a lightweight browser plug-in and rich Internet application runtime that delivers consistent and engaging user experiences, stunning audio/video playback, and exciting gameplay.
Installed on more than 1.3 billion systems, Flash Player is the standard for delivering high-impact, rich Web content.
SWF stands for Small Web Format which is an Adobe Flash File Format used for multimedia, vector graphics like interactive animations and games. It is derived from Shockwave Flash. SWF files can only be played in a flash compatible web browser. A SWF file has a .swf extension. Flash games are very popular as they can be directly played in the web browser. But android doesn't have a direct support to play swf files. But in this tutorial I am going to teach you how you can do this.
If you want to view Flash-based websites, play Flash games or watch Flash videos on your iPad, you'll come across a bit of a problem: the iPad doesn't support Flash. However, that doesn't mean you can't get Flash on your iPad at all. There are various apps available to download from the iOS App Store for iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini 2 that will help. Some of these apps are also available for iPhone, so you can play Flash games or videos on your iPhone, too.
Popular browser apps that will enable you to play Flash videos and games on your iPad include Photon Browser, Puffin, Skyfire Browser and iSwifter Browser.
