Take a look at this! Just as all hope was lost, someone has finally figured out away to run flash on the iPad and iPhone. Although it is very limited at the moment Chris Smoak’s Smokescreen does exactly what it promises: enables Flash content to play on Apple’s iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. Here’s how Smokescreen gets around using a Flash plugin as described by Simon Willison:
“It runs entirely in the browser, reads in SWF binaries, unzips them (in native JS), extracts images and embedded audio and turns them in to base64 encoded data:uris, then stitches the vector graphics back together as animated SVG.”
You guys can try it for yourselves though right here!: http://smokescreen.us/demos/intro.html
So what do you think? Flash games and video on the iPhone not so far-fetched after all?
