I'm supposed to install a Flash equivalent software on my Ipad3 for this particular website:


The issue I'm having is I don't know from where to install this software from.  I was told that Puffin software is supposed to be a good one, but can't locate the software.  Can someone assist?  Also, Is there another software I can install besides the recommended software?  More on the FREE side or is this software superior somehow?

Apple iOS which runs on all iPhones and iPads comes with the Safari web browser and there is NO support for Flash built-in to Safari or iOS.

You therefore have to install software from a 3rd party on the iPad to access websites that use Flash.
There are a few Web Browser alternatives for iPad and iPhone which can play Flash (to varying degrees)
Photon - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/photon-flash-player-for-iphone/id453546382?mt=8
CloudBrowse - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/cloud-browse-web-browser-for/id394418635?mt=8
Puffin - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/puffin-web-browser-free/id472937654?mt=8

Puffin is FREE but the best reviews are for Photon for Flash

There is also the potential to jailbreak your device for expanded support. however there are some adverse consequences to doing this as it can completely brick your device and i believe there are warranty issues. Food for thought
