    So, I was doing my daily browsing on the interwebz and I came along on an application called "Cloud Browse." What this application does, is emulates Mozilla Firefox on your iPhone or iPod Touch, so you can enjoy all of the benefits of flash, right on your device. The playback may be somewhat slow, as this application is currently in development, and you are emulating, not actually on Firefox. The speed can be somewhat slow at times, but overall it is very stable.

    EDIT: This application was pulled from the App Store, the developer wants to still distribute it. You can find downloads for this application by doing a simple Google search and acquire it via "other" means.

    Once you have the application on your iPhone, you can open it up and you will most likely get an error message. Keep clicking OK until it goes through, this can take anywhere from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, so be patient. Your request has to go through their servers, and there servers are quite busy.

    Once you are in, you should see the default homepage.

    The movements of moving around, are just like Safari, it is pinch to zoom in, etc. Sometimes, it can get a little touchy but you will get the hang of it pretty quick. To show that it actually runs Flash, I went over to:

    www.addictinggames.com

    From there, I joined a random flash game, and bam, a fully playable game.

    To get the full functionality if you like to play games, I would recommend that you download a keyboard that has arrow keys, so you can play many of the flash games.

    What is really cool about this too, is upon further investigation, I even got it to play a popular online JAVA game, it is just like you have your own mini computer! Anyways, I urge you to check out Cloud Browse, it may not be good for an everyday browser, but if there is a website that utilizes flash, this is DEFINITELY the browser for you!

    'This application isn't available in this App Store'. I went to the US one, any ideas?

    I just updated the thread, the developer has posted many download links to the app around the internet. You can just do a simple google search for it.
