photon flash player for iPhone - flash Video & Games plus Private web browser
Description
+ "photon browser is a powerful and versatile Safari alternative that excels in its flash support..." - USAToday + photon for iPad is #1 in Utilities in US, UK and top 30 overall app around the world. + photon plays flash videos, games and flash websites. Appsverse photon browser is a powerful new browser specifically designed to enhance your browsing experience on the iPhone and iPod Touch. It is packed with innovative features. Here are just some of them: 1. flash browsing support - photon browser allows you to play flash games such as free Facebook games, use flash apps and watch flash video inline using its remote cloud browse mode. - browse flash websites that would otherwise not display on the iPhone. - Play music that streams through a flash player. - Read news that require flash support. - Press the “Lightning” icon on the bottom right navigation bar when you encounter a flash website on the iPhone or iPod Touch. - Combines fast native browsing for normal websites and remote browsing for flash websites. Switch between the 2 modes using the lightning bolt button (for flash) or the web globe button (for native browsing). - Support different mode such as pointer mode for precision that makes your iPhone acts like a mouse pad. Supports touch mode for scrolling and touch/click. Supports drag mode for dragging around game maps. - Zoom in flash. PLEASE WAIT a second or two for the zoom to update before zooming again on iPhone and iPod touches. - We support audio. PLEASE MAKE sure your mute switch is not on. 2. Fully featured powerful browser - Private browsing clears history, cookies and caches upon browser exit. - Anonymous browsing through our servers. - Share content via email. - Brightness control for night time browsing. - Rotation lock for playing web based games. - Personalize your browser by choosing from thousands of colors. 3. Others - Bookmarks support - Print web pages using AirPrint. - More innovative features to come Important notes - PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING: - When you encounter a flash website, REMEMBER TO CLICK ON the "Lightning Bolt" button to enter flash streaming mode. Otherwise, you will see the standard Adobe message that flash needs to be installed or upgraded as you are still in the native browser mode. Only by explicitly clicking on the "Lightning" button will you then be able to view flash content. - If you have a slow Internet connection such as over a slow 3G network, remote browsing feature may have slow performance even though we have made great technological improvements to support flash over low bandwidth. flash mode works best over Wifi in a broadband network. Just because you have Wifi does not mean you have a fast network. Wifi is fast enough but your bottleneck is the wired connection that your Wifi sits on. However, you can still use photon as a fast native browser for your regular browsing. - If you have problems, do not hesitate to contact us given in the support link on iTunes. We are extremely responsive and answer questions within 1-3 business days. For terms, please go to www.appsverse.com/Terms
Photon Works fine for me
by Vickjones#1 on 2021/01/27 08:20
I don’t use it that often but I have never had any problems with this app.
IT WORKS EVEN AFTER LOSS OF FLASH
by Gamemaster180 on 2021/01/22 00:11
wooh flash games still work!!
Gary
by Gm656064 on 2021/01/16 02:13
Worst app I ever paid for it never works. What a waste of money
Does not work
by Piffy22 on 2020/12/12 07:47
When you open the app and go to a website the flash part does work but when it comes time to actually selecting or moving the mouse or anything like that it does not work at all you’re going to waste your money if you pay for this app.
Doesn’t work
by djoe100 on 2020/11/27 18:57
Just bought it on my iPhone paying $3.99. It doesn’t work. Very disappointed.
Shameful
by The One You Dread on 2020/11/24 05:00
Paid money for this years ago and it was great. Slowly quit working on some web sites until it wasn’t supported at all. Now the same company sells an updated version, but wants a monthly fee. It’s criminal and these people deserve to serve prison time. It’s outrageous that they sold a product, let the customers use it for years then refuse to update it so they have to repurchase it.
Worked for about 10 minutes
by jamason777 on 2020/11/18 17:15
I paid for and downloaded this browser and it worked for no more than 10 minutes before showing an error. I only bought this app to have flash player on my iPhone.This browser is totally useless. Would not recommend.
Works fine
by Kzunaid on 2020/11/16 23:11
I’ve used some paid apps as well, and Photon does the work alright for free.
Garbage
by Lukezwingles on 2020/10/18 21:32
I need Flash to watch live streams from a shared Nest camera. Still haven’t found a good browser yet. This one technically works, but is so incredibly slow that I see 1 second of video before it goes back to loading for another 5 minutes. Useless.
This app is the worst!!!!!
by sok5015 on 2020/08/11 02:20
Photon is very outdated!! Do not buy all versions X or regular free or paid!!! It has never been updated since last reviews , I don’t understand why Apple hasn’t made their browser FLASH friendly yet? I have an Ijpone11 pro and this is like dinosaur mode for me had to delete !!!!!!!!!!!and I got fooled into getting the PRO version as if it was better !!! Why does APPLE still have these useless APPS!!!
The worst app ever
by Suznmy on 2020/08/04 17:13
I want a refund. This app does not work and isn’t worth the 2 dollars I spent. It wouldn’t be worth one penny.
Kinda a scam, but not how you think
by Kateycat1 on 2020/06/28 02:19
Hey, so I just want to warn you all, there is “photon” and there is “photon X Pro”. There is literally no difference except the “pro” version costs money. ALSO flash support is a paid monthly subscription which IS NOT STATED IN THE DESCRIPTION. I basically wasted 2.99 buying the pro version so I wouldn’t have to pay monthly. Otherwise, the free version works remarkably well. It’s a little janky, but not as bad as puffin pro. Whenever your free trial is up, you can literally just redownload for another, and it takes a whole 20sec to delete and redownload. I am going to rate the free version a solid four stars in contrast to this review.
Trash
by Gyu2su on 2020/05/20 04:45
App doesn’t work at all. Tried all the steps and it instead block the website I really needed and was the only reason for buying this app.
Crap
by BLKSHEBA on 2020/04/10 23:39
I paid for this app years ago and it hasn’t worked for me in I don’t know how long. I feel taken advantage of and it’s not fair. Why hasn’t this app been fixed yet?!?! It doesn’t even load anymore!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬
Don’t get
by 90 jjrr90 on 2020/03/25 02:50
The reason why I got this was for the flash player and it did not work.
Didn’t work for online training
by HotPilotSmith on 2020/03/22 13:49
With no one supporting flash player on iPad I gave this a try. But the online training course for my job that uses flash wouldn’t work on the iPad with Photon. Also, the Photon interface is clunky and hard to use, it resizes and jumps around hiding the areas where you need to enter information. I will have to complete the training course on my computer. The bottom line is courseware developers need to stop using flash player in their courseware.
Junk
by NotMarcia on 2020/03/18 00:33
I bought the app for Flash and I couldn’t get past registration.
Useless app
by Ronwery on 2020/03/01 05:01
I don’t normally rate the app, but this app is useless to me.
Garbage!
by Lucius Rexus on 2020/02/28 09:34
Garbaaaage!
ridiculous
by DocJV on 2020/02/27 16:46
any secure site will not load flash i want a refund
Adobe flash
by pac1949 on 2020/02/10 05:47
My purpose in loading Photon was to be able to get Adobe Flash but it didn’t work. I probably will never use the app again but now I’m out $3.99. For something I’ll never use. My suggestion is to make sure you know it will work for what you want it for before you download the app. There seems to be no way to communicate to cancel it.
view flash server web site
by jing ch on 2020/02/08 08:49
Not working for viewing flash server content after a day of usage.
It works but...
by striker enno on 2020/02/07 19:09
There’s one big problem I have with it and I know this can be easily fixed, every time I go to a different app it just resets, this wouldn’t be a problem if I could go back to the page I was on previously but nope it just resets everything, other than that it works fine .
Downloaded/Paid for Flash
by KW_Vet on 2020/01/24 19:04
Attempted to use on a website that needed Flash support, the website ran very slow and the content needed never opened.
Horrible
by 12332455443 on 2020/01/24 03:00
Absolutely horrible. This app is NOTHING compared to Puffin. If you are looking for an iPhone flash supporting browser, go elsewhere. You are completely wasting your money here. Waste of time!
Frustrated
by littlemonstersmith on 2020/01/24 02:11
This app does not support microphone or camera....should tell ya that before ya waste ur money on app... uninstalled this app.... waste of time & my money
Is this still working?
by fiftyfivefiftyfive on 2020/01/20 10:29
Flash pages just come up empty white for me
Won't Even Open!!!!
by Ineed mahfundsbak on 2020/01/18 20:22
I have been looking for an web browsing app that is compatible with the 5.1.1 iOS on our iPad. I came across Photon and it said it was compatible with ios 5.1.1 and up. Even though it costs money it was the only web browser I could find. So I bought it and downloaded it and once I tried to open it all I could see was a mini version of the iPad on the screen then all of a sudden the screen goes back to the home page. I don't know why this app didn't work, but I feel like I've been duped by a shady third party app service and would like to warn everybody with an older apple device DON'T BUY THIS APP!!!!!
Updated rating
by Steep17836 on 2020/01/16 14:18
This app no longer works don’t buy it it’s finished
It’s monopoly
by meliodas rage on 2020/01/15 05:35
It’s a really laggy flash player that makes fallout 76 look like a decent bit of programming and you have to pay for it but the god of flash in the apple store aka puffin is gone and this is the only official flash player that apple hasn’t managed to discontinue so 3.5-4 stars just for being the last to survive
Needs update
by Jw13579 on 2020/01/13 13:28
Paid for this app and the last update was over 4 years ago.
Flash doesn’t Work
by Lotsofboobies on 2020/01/10 23:16
Flash doesn’t work. Don’t bother downloading this App let alone pay for it.
Sucked
by 🍒❤️courtney❤️🍒 on 2019/12/18 21:57
The app was terrible. My old main browser was puffin. This app doesn't even live up to it, and they make people pay💀 Requested my refund
Blocked from access
by Batman74147 on 2019/12/03 12:30
What do I do if a site is “blocked from access”?
Great! But..
by ZheAwesomePenguin on 2019/11/30 00:47
The app is great for its intended purpose. But oh my sweet Cheez-Its. The lag. It doesn’t matter what you do. How good your internet is. What settings you play with. The lag is real. The lag is strong. The lag takes 5-10 seconds just to load the other half of a page and register an input. The lag will come for us all. That being said, it’s really my only gripe with the app. It supports flash, starts, runs(with major lag sometimes), and is generally okay. I think it’s a little overpriced for a mobile app, but if you ration it out it’s about the price of two or three Mountain Dews. Overall I’m happy with it. It’s no Puffin(and nothing ever will be), but it’s okay as a plan B. Just expect to use your patience while you’re using flash.
Bad deal
by nickflasho on 2019/11/24 20:08
Hi I would like a refund. When using the app on the iPad it only allows a tiny portion of the screen to be useable for the flash function.
Update web browser
by Satyacp on 2019/11/22 11:28
Please update your web browser to newer version, can’t seem to see anything in desktop mode.
Review
by unhappy with ad blocker on 2019/10/28 23:20
Ok app. Got it to have a better facebook experience.Too many ads, shuts down when I try to play videos. When I make a comment or jump to a page to read an article it never goes back to where I was. Looking for something better.
Needs an update
by Denim2 on 2019/10/27 18:07
I need a browser with flash and this one probably worked 3yrs ago but not now. I want a refund
Wasted my money for buying and downloading this app!
by hunterxhuntergoniverse on 2019/10/05 02:27
I can't believe that this app didn't do what it was supposed to do. I bought this so that I can play myvegas facebook on my phone instead of my laptop. Right away the server was very slow! When I logged in on facebook to play the myvegas facebook, it said "Stage3D error: Context3D not available" Don't buy or download this app because it's not worth it at all!
Glitchy as hell
by Skoovagear on 2019/09/29 22:13
Glitchy as all get out. Do t buy. Hopefully Puffin will stick around.
Photon don’t work
by Coolsueheart68 on 2019/09/28 22:14
It don’t work on my ipads6 can I get my money back thanks
Waste of money
by LowKeyTeej on 2019/09/20 02:58
Did not work at all—plus a lot of latency/lag. I only bought this for watching flash videos and the videos are just a solid gray box. I was really hoping this would work for me.
Don’t buy for Facebook games!
by Husker30 on 2019/08/08 20:05
I bought this browser to replace Puffin Browser to play my Facebook games on. I get a message when I’m in Facebook that this browser is not compatible with Facebook. None of my games load, they get a 3D flash error. Complete waste of money!!!!!
No Tinychat!? Whats the point?
by busstopgang on 2019/08/01 11:01
Does what you expected to do. In most cases but doesn’t work with Tinychat At least in my initial experience....please work on this.... its basically the only reason I tried it...
Bought it for one thing, and it doesn’t work!
by Sherielizabeth on 2019/07/31 16:05
So I bought this to run my son’s flash based science program so I don’t have to send the little guy to my computer. This app promises you can open any flash program, video, game, whatever, but for this ONE application that I want, it DOES NOT WORK. I want my money back. 5 bucks down the drain. I am NOT happy, and I NEVER write reviews, much less a bad one. Make it right, guys.
Does not work for what I need...
by NeferInpw on 2019/07/08 22:02
does not load the website
Doesn’t work
by Longhorn355 on 2019/07/06 15:58
This browser won’t show Flash content on several websites.
Should have a 0 option
by MoGoulet on 2019/07/01 16:35
Worthless. First page went blank. Crap app. Don’t waste your money.
The app you need!
by Chuksey3000 on 2019/06/30 21:39
Easily a must have app even if only using for flash compatible websites, and links.
good but flash is buggy
by Anony 747 on 2019/06/27 23:29
when im in flash mode and i scroll, it has a two second delay and is choppy, and the bandwidth didnt help it, also, how do i go full screen on a flash game? edit: its been a long time since i left this review, and the only other available flash player is puffin browser that is going to be shut down next month, i payed for this app to be a flash player and it does an awful job at it, and i expect you to do something about it now
Terrible
by Chrisxyxy on 2019/06/27 05:46
This app could be good but it does not work correctly....I go to a sight to watch a video, it says to sign in first. Then I tap “sign in” and the page goes white and does nothing. I can’t watch the videos because it won’t go to the sign in page and let me sign in.....stupid!...btw, the site on safari opens the “sign in” page just fine, unfortunately I needed this app on my iPhone to watch the videos since they’re in Flash format...guess I just won’t be watching the videos after all....thanks!
Ain't the greatest, but it's the only one we've got
by BaffleBlend on 2019/06/27 00:59
I downloaded Photon after my former main browser, Puffin, announced that it would no longer be usable on July 1, 2019. Photon does mostly fill the void. However, there is one major flaw that stops me from LIKING Photon; my iPhone's status bar is hidden. While I'm using Photon, I can't look at the clock, signal, or battery. But I'll have to make do. The developers' website is a 404, they haven't posted on their Twitter in years, and the last update even here was 3 years ago. With this in mind, I'm surprised the remote servers are still running at all. Everything but the browser itself points to the browser being an abandoned project. So I don't have hopes for this issue to be fixed any time soon. There's also another major annoyance in that I can't edit the URL of bookmarks. Only the titles. This makes some bookmarks that I regularly used impossible to bookmark.
Waste of $4!!!
by We'renutz4mickey on 2019/06/24 20:23
This app does nothing for me. I need to view a web page on flash and scroll around the page to work and this opened the page , but couldn’t slide/scroll to right side of page. Useless for me.
Doesn’t work on sites that rely on flash to work.
by SocietyX on 2019/06/21 03:11
Doesn’t work on sites that rely on flash to work. Websites keep saying this browser isn’t supported.
Don’t
by Woody123455 on 2019/06/20 20:37
The browser just closes on you and doesn’t play any video that Safari didn’t.
REFUND MY MONEY
by KHGrimm on 2019/06/10 19:12
This clearly does not run any modern Flash sites. Forge of Empires does not even load. No updates in 2 years. I want a refund and until you get it working I will use my desktop computer.
Didn’t work for connect math
by shaneyjulian1234 on 2019/06/10 15:42
I downloaded puffin for free and it worked. Messed with this app for a good minute before I gave up. Wish I wouldn’t have paid for this before downloading puffin. On my iPad it’s a small screen too....where puffin uses entire screen.
There’s a bug
by RenMuffin on 2019/06/10 03:55
I actually love this app, it’s my fave. But there’s a bug in it now and *every* site is “unavailable”. It can come up with the “App verse” search site but that’s it.
Stopped working
by Brayden04 on 2019/06/07 07:17
The app worked fine for quite a while but not too long ago it started saying every site was no longer available and that it had been decommisioned
Did not work for me
by sassygirl831 on 2019/06/05 02:54
The website I needed to go to would not work with photon.
Terrible, Puffin is better
by Rmont8364 on 2019/05/25 14:37
Super slow and awful interface. Waste of time and money.
Does not work
by joshua9493939 on 2019/05/24 01:06
Does not work for what it’s meant to be used for. I bought it to go in one of those websites and it does not work in it super slow do not recommend it you buy it.
Scam

Can’t Even Get Flash to work
by Theresa J on 2019/05/06 05:22
The only reason I bought this is to be able to play a flash Facebook game. I kept getting a message that flash will not work on my device. I’m using the latest iPad. Big waste of money. Also it wouldn’t size up for my iPad it looks iPhone size.
F off you thief’s

Money stealing app, no good and does not have legit customer service and no refunds
Multitasker
by Joe Otile on 2019/04/05 14:57
It’s a great browser for multitasking.
Terrible App
by Shipfan402 on 2019/03/29 00:35
Is just painful to be charged $4.00 for this. Please dont waste your money. Look for something else that actually works.
Not what I needed
by estella484 on 2019/03/20 13:06
I got this so I could play Facebook games on my phone (since Apple stopped giving support for Puffin). Except Facebook says it doesn’t support Photon. What the hell do I have to sell to get Flash on my iPhone May I please get a refund, there’s nothing else I want to use Photon for
I am disappointed
by blkmom20852 on 2019/03/14 08:47
I was looking for something that would automatically kick in while I was using any search engine on my iPad and this is not it. I must use this app as the actual portal and I didn’t like how the app’s screen did not fill iPad’s screen and it was difficult to maneuver through the website I needed the flash player for. Definitely not worth what I paid for & I’ll be cancelling my subscription.
Not comparable with IPad Pro 12.9
by Geat0620 on 2019/03/14 01:28
It’s not giving you the option to do a full screen and the flash disappears very fast after you close the app and the screen is not very clear at all once you turn the flash on. Please fix the issue especially when I purchased the paid version thinking that it’s going to be better the free one but it’s actually worse definitely not worth the money. I wish it would work as i need a browsers with flash to use a work website.
Didn’t expect...
by PiperAD on 2019/02/17 18:39
for this app to truly do what it promotes. However, it does. I hope to be able to use a flash player for video calls other than iPhones FaceTime in the near future.
This app & my Ex have a lot in common
by MegalithicBic on 2019/02/13 01:21
both are cheap. both dont work. and i regret spending money on both.
Thank you
by Cg537820 on 2019/01/31 02:02
Thank you for making this and please do not stop updates and development with this app.
Trash filled with ads
by Samwell......... on 2019/01/31 00:56
It keeps redirecting me to the apple store so as to download another app.
Update for iPhone X and Xs?
by Slummers on 2019/01/30 15:34
Would be great!
Georgette
by Gtbenn on 2019/01/27 18:23
Are there never any updates on this? I’ve had this app for a long time and when I use it, it tells me update my browser.
Bought it to stream live video
by LexCity17 on 2019/01/11 00:04
I bought it thinking it had flash capability to stream on my site, does not allow me to stream whatsoever!!! Complete waste of my money and I’d like a refund
Waste of money
by Robnicolau1 on 2019/01/10 17:10
Doesn’t work at all on the sites I needed it for. I’ll be asking for a refund
Really slow
by RabbitofAnime on 2018/12/31 18:40
I tried this looking for a flash player, it awkwardly skips around the page if you try to move around the screen and pauses alot of what your watching
No good
by ldhfjifbkt on 2018/12/27 17:57
This is a waste of money I can not view anything with this app. DO NOT BUY .. I want a refund
Stopped working. Flash player won’t play videos anymore.
by Must get thru on 2018/12/17 14:05
I purchased this three days ago and it worked fine playing videos on my iPad & iPhone that needed FLASH SUPPORT to play on them. This morning, now I go to my website to play videos through this app and now it tells me it needs a newer version to work???!!! Somebody tell me what app will play Flash on iPad & iPhones?
Not Great- works a little- sort of
by qewrfdgfcy65y7 on 2018/12/12 14:49
I tried to pull the video to the 20 minute mark but could not. So I was forced to watch it from the beginning. Also when I minimize the window to use another app then come back to this, I’m kicked out of the site I was on and now I have to log in all over again and watch the video from the beginning because fast forward does not work. I was going to give it 3 stars but now I’m downgrading to 2 because I don’t think I’ll ever open this again. But not 1 star because it does work ...a little
Photon Flash Player is Awesome!
by Matrix53h on 2018/11/24 15:14
This app consistently does an awesome job showing flash videos on my iPhone! I love it an recommend it VERY highly. Get it, try it & U will love it too, GUARANTEED! :)
It’s Great.. When The Servers Aren’t Constantly Busy
by GambyThe4th on 2018/11/18 20:37
Been trying to connect to a browsing session for an hour with no luck, always says it’s busy. I know it’s the servers since it worked before and nothing has changed since then. It’s great otherwise, just useless when I can’t even use the setting it’s made for.
Very disappointed
by GPVP76 on 2018/11/12 06:02
I bought this app only to open an educational game for a homework, when I try to open it it says "The website is not available" How do I get a refund????
Doesn’t Work For Me
by JordenJohnson❤️ on 2018/11/04 23:48
It doesn’t work for me at all, I am completely frustrated with this app and I would like a complete and total refund. It is a COMPLETE WASTE of $3.99 AND of my time. I also am uninstalling the app so I better have a refund to my card😡
Flash Does Not Work
by slo.mike on 2018/10/25 23:39
I could not get the flash component to work. This used to be a great app.
Horrible browser
by Maddy_2015 on 2018/10/05 03:32
just paid $4 for this junk. Interface predates and flash and general interface is very slow. Puffy the free browser is far superior compared to this. Not sure why people have rated it very high. Refund would be appreciated. This is the worst browser i tested and the only browser for which i paid to get with false impression based on other reviews.

New bug: Can’t delete history without app crashing. iOS 11 iPhone 6s I’ve used it since 2012 or so. Good app.
Works great with a little tweaking!
by Old Tanky on 2018/08/31 18:30
No I’m not talking about getting tweaked out!😂😂😂 After finding the correct settings I was able to have great results with this app!
Works but with issues
by Southtexican on 2018/08/31 15:25
Works with iPhone 7 Plus but moving items around within the screen while using the app is difficult and bothersome. Has been locking up a lot lately. Prompting a reboot to correct.. not helping at all.
Too old
by tulgaas on 2018/08/30 05:39
Junk app, wasted my time and money for decade old useless app. I wish Apple clean up these type of old apps.
Don’t work
by fmj-nfs on 2018/08/25 19:15
Flash player does not work on iPhone tried playing battle pirates from Facebook and directly and it will not play would not recommend this app to anybody , Buyers beware not as advertised
They steal your login credentials
by fibb on 2018/08/20 17:22
This app stole my login credentials for a website and deactivated my account. Scam. Stay clear.
Not working for iPhone 8 iOS 11.3.1
by BigWetFoot on 2018/07/19 13:35
There is a bug that makes this app unusable. The app needs to be updated... or I refund issued to those who bought it.
Don’t waste ur money

Don’t waste ur money the app doesn’t work
No Flash!!

This sh”t doesn’t support flash. What a waste of 5 bucks. F U
Ain't the greatest, but it's the only one we've got
by BaffleBlend on 2019/06/27 00:59
I downloaded Photon after my former main browser, Puffin, announced that it would no longer be usable on July 1, 2019. Photon does mostly fill the void. However, there is one major flaw that stops me from LIKING Photon; my iPhone's status bar is hidden. While I'm using Photon, I can't look at the clock, signal, or battery. But I'll have to make do. The developers' website is a 404, they haven't posted on their Twitter in years, and the last update even here was 3 years ago. With this in mind, I'm surprised the remote servers are still running at all. Everything but the browser itself points to the browser being an abandoned project. So I don't have hopes for this issue to be fixed any time soon. There's also another major annoyance in that I can't edit the URL of bookmarks. Only the titles. This makes some bookmarks that I regularly used impossible to bookmark.
This is simple but incredibly useful
by Yes I'm Groovin on 2017/09/13 02:02
It always surprised me when new native browsers came out for each version of iOS with no flash capabilities. Yet this app has been able to do it splendidly even on my 4th Gen iPod Touch. This company/app is apparently so ahead of its time that major companies still haven't figured out how useful mobile flash functionality is. EDIT: READ THIS IF YOU GET A "Firefox crashed" ERROR. You need to try different engines (the setting with "v1" through "v4" as options). I usually use the "v2" setting as it seems the most versatile. To compensate for differences in different device capabilities, I think the company put this option in so the user can decide which flash engine works best for their device. It's smart thinking in my opinion.
Great! But..
by ZheAwesomePenguin on 2019/11/30 00:47
The app is great for its intended purpose. But oh my sweet Cheez-Its. The lag. It doesn’t matter what you do. How good your internet is. What settings you play with. The lag is real. The lag is strong. The lag takes 5-10 seconds just to load the other half of a page and register an input. The lag will come for us all. That being said, it’s really my only gripe with the app. It supports flash, starts, runs(with major lag sometimes), and is generally okay. I think it’s a little overpriced for a mobile app, but if you ration it out it’s about the price of two or three Mountain Dews. Overall I’m happy with it. It’s no Puffin(and nothing ever will be), but it’s okay as a plan B. Just expect to use your patience while you’re using flash.
Great app
by jaschern on 2015/10/18 14:41
I had been using this app for years and it has been my go to app for playing flash games and doing my online courses. The app is great for viewing flash content that Safari is unable to. Many of my school courses is also in flash format and being able to do it on my iOS device is a big help. It does 99% of what I needed and is a great app. I recommended to my friends all the time when they complain about not being able to work on their courses without their laptops.
Kinda a scam, but not how you think
by Kateycat1 on 2020/06/28 02:19
Hey, so I just want to warn you all, there is “photon” and there is “photon X Pro”. There is literally no difference except the “pro” version costs money. ALSO flash support is a paid monthly subscription which IS NOT STATED IN THE DESCRIPTION. I basically wasted 2.99 buying the pro version so I wouldn’t have to pay monthly. Otherwise, the free version works remarkably well. It’s a little janky, but not as bad as puffin pro. Whenever your free trial is up, you can literally just redownload for another, and it takes a whole 20sec to delete and redownload. I am going to rate the free version a solid four stars in contrast to this review.
It’s Great.. When The Servers Aren’t Constantly Busy
by GambyThe4th on 2018/11/18 20:37
Been trying to connect to a browsing session for an hour with no luck, always says it’s busy. I know it’s the servers since it worked before and nothing has changed since then. It’s great otherwise, just useless when I can’t even use the setting it’s made for.
Photon web browser
by Rumple21 on 2015/10/29 18:04
I have nothing bad to submit about this browser. It generally always opens pages that others won't. If you don't already have this browser you don't know what your missing out on. I started out using this on my IPhone 5 (64g) and progressed to iPhone 6+ and this browser always works when the other browsers don't. You don't have to take my word because I know how well it has worked when flash won't.
Won't Even Open!!!!
by Ineed mahfundsbak on 2020/01/18 20:22
I have been looking for an web browsing app that is compatible with the 5.1.1 iOS on our iPad. I came across Photon and it said it was compatible with ios 5.1.1 and up. Even though it costs money it was the only web browser I could find. So I bought it and downloaded it and once I tried to open it all I could see was a mini version of the iPad on the screen then all of a sudden the screen goes back to the home page. I don't know why this app didn't work, but I feel like I've been duped by a shady third party app service and would like to warn everybody with an older apple device DON'T BUY THIS APP!!!!!
Not Great- works a little- sort of
by qewrfdgfcy65y7 on 2018/12/12 14:49
I tried to pull the video to the 20 minute mark but could not. So I was forced to watch it from the beginning. Also when I minimize the window to use another app then come back to this, I’m kicked out of the site I was on and now I have to log in all over again and watch the video from the beginning because fast forward does not work. I was going to give it 3 stars but now I’m downgrading to 2 because I don’t think I’ll ever open this again. But not 1 star because it does work ...a little
Best app I ever purchased!
by pupspals on 2015/11/13 19:39
Totally worth the cost! This app allows me to do what no other app I've tried can reliably do: allow me to access the entire web. I've only given it 4 stars because it's not good enough to replace the default browser yet. To me it's a little bit clunky but still a good browser in it's own right But it allows me to use flash on my phone!! I can play games (with some delay - I'd avoid fast action games, casual are best), fill out surveys & best of all, stream video! One network won't let you stream their new shows next day on mobile but you can on a desktop. Enter this app. Like magic I can stream next day with no issue from my phone!! This app allows me to skip turning on my laptop for months at a time Thank you for this app & the service! A must have!!
This app is the worst!!!!!
by sok5015 on 2020/08/11 02:20
Photon is very outdated!! Do not buy all versions X or regular free or paid!!! It has never been updated since last reviews , I don’t understand why Apple hasn’t made their browser FLASH friendly yet? I have an Ijpone11 pro and this is like dinosaur mode for me had to delete !!!!!!!!!!!and I got fooled into getting the PRO version as if it was better !!! Why does APPLE still have these useless APPS!!!
Life saver
by Mwbja on 2016/02/16 07:57
This app has been helping me do my assignments since I started college 4 years ago! I have terrible luck with computers and can't always stay at school to do my homework so this app has been my go to for the many websites that chrome mobile or safari can't load on my iPhone! I never buy apps either but this was definitely worth the money.
Great app
by 671TrueGold on 2017/08/19 05:37
I needed to open a link that was shared for one of my classes, but other popular websites like Chrome and Firefox would not open this link that allows the use of flash content and I found this app. It saved me. This app works great and it's a keeper 👏🏻👍🏻 Thanks for the excellent work you do to provide a good quality app that works perfectly. Extremely satisfied. 😁
Well worth the money
by JigokuShoujoXIV on 2017/06/02 21:59
I spent a long time using multiple apps to be able to watch my son on his daycare's camera live stream. After trying various browsers and apps, Ingot it to work on this one right away. Well worth the $3.99 to be able to spy on my kid on camera lol. I'm sure I'll find other good uses for it too since I like to game a lot.
Thank you!
by Lifelong reader on 2017/01/24 18:43
It's great to have the ability to play video and audio requiring Flash on my iPhone. I wish I'd known about this app a long time ago. I just downloaded it a few days ago, and although I'd prefer to give it more exercise before committing to 5 stars, so far it's working perfectly, so 5 stars it is!
Works great so far!
by Dreamgypsy54 on 2016/08/21 13:02
Works great so far! Got it to go to my fave game spot and it works EVERY time on all the games I play there; also everywhere else I have needed it for! It's so easy to use- type in the addy, touch the lightening bolt in the corner and I'm able to maneuver perfectly on any flash-based page! Well worth it in my opinion!
Nice App!
by Ddeserae.f381 on 2016/02/27 06:03
I like all of the features this browser carries. It's so cool and really impressive. I've been looking for a flash browser that actually does what the description says it will; and spent more money than I should've. My only complaint is that you can't download any video content from the web....Otherwise- This app takes the cake. I'm glad I downloaded it. Great work!
Just what I needed
by Alexthe3rd on 2016/08/05 05:59
Now some companies always use online to clock in, view your W2 forms and also print your Pay Stubs , and the majority of their online websites always require Flash Player, but with this app you don't need your laptop no more, I'm really happy that I can know manage it from my iPhone, Thanks
Every iPhone and iPad needs this app.
by I Karnick on 2015/11/13 13:47
It lets you see / interact with flash websites. I wish I had this year's ago. It takes a little while to get used to the tools that help you navigate and sometimes you have to reload the page several times for it to work, but it does work well. It's worth the money, and it works for my iPad and iPhone.
Terrible
by Chrisxyxy on 2019/06/27 05:46
This app could be good but it does not work correctly....I go to a sight to watch a video, it says to sign in first. Then I tap “sign in” and the page goes white and does nothing. I can’t watch the videos because it won’t go to the sign in page and let me sign in.....stupid!...btw, the site on safari opens the “sign in” page just fine, unfortunately I needed this app on my iPhone to watch the videos since they’re in Flash format...guess I just won’t be watching the videos after all....thanks!
Slow response
by Freedomplayer on 2016/12/12 23:11
Not the right app for some popular games. The buttons don't work when playing games. Has half a second response after a touch of a button. On the other hand its a great app for limited data users. I like the quality control feature. Good app for videos. Also the audio isn't the same speed as the video. Now the app doesn't save data for some reason. Maybe the regular browser is playing a video same time as the flash player browser.
I don't understand it but it works
by J from Baltimore on 2016/07/31 19:52
"We're Sorry This content requires Adobe Flash Player, which is not supported by your device." It is now! I don't know exactly how this works, but it works. I'll stick to Google and Chrome as my primary browsers, but this is a nice trick to have up my sleeve.
Not comparable with IPad Pro 12.9
by Geat0620 on 2019/03/14 01:28
It’s not giving you the option to do a full screen and the flash disappears very fast after you close the app and the screen is not very clear at all once you turn the flash on. Please fix the issue especially when I purchased the paid version thinking that it’s going to be better the free one but it’s actually worse definitely not worth the money. I wish it would work as i need a browsers with flash to use a work website.
First day using
by micheleabella on 2016/05/23 22:13
And it's working perfect for what I need it for. I just wanted to be able to open up a JavaScript page. ( I haven't used for video yet) the character input lags but not horribly. Worth the few bucks so I do not have to drag out my laptop to view.
It works but...
by striker enno on 2020/02/07 19:09
There’s one big problem I have with it and I know this can be easily fixed, every time I go to a different app it just resets, this wouldn’t be a problem if I could go back to the page I was on previously but nope it just resets everything, other than that it works fine .
A browser that plays flash
by Windowleaper on 2017/04/05 23:16
That is what this app is and it does it. There are some features I would like to see added such as the password feature working in flash mode. For regular browsing I will still use Dolphin. But this does allow me to use a flash base website I use for my job.
Didn’t work for online training
by HotPilotSmith on 2020/03/22 13:49
With no one supporting flash player on iPad I gave this a try. But the online training course for my job that uses flash wouldn’t work on the iPad with Photon. Also, the Photon interface is clunky and hard to use, it resizes and jumps around hiding the areas where you need to enter information. I will have to complete the training course on my computer. The bottom line is courseware developers need to stop using flash player in their courseware.
Warning: separate apps for iPhone and iPad. Don't purchase twice!
by Holbrook89 on 2015/11/21 14:48
Useful app. It's a shame they separate the iPad and iPhone version and then charge for both of them. Yes, you can download the iPhone version to the iPad, but don't expect to purchase the iPhone version and have a good experience on both devices. The sad part is I'd be willing to pay double the price if a single app worked well on iPhone and iPad. That said, I will not be purchasing the iPad version. It should be one app for all iOS devices.
Arrow keys need some work
by Default666 on 2017/08/30 05:16
The app's great for most flash required things, though the only thing keeping it from 5 stars is when I tried to play a simple flash game the arrow keys on the keyboard don't seem to do anything, not sure why but if that were to be fixed, this would be a 5 star app for sure.
It’s monopoly
by meliodas rage on 2020/01/15 05:35
It’s a really laggy flash player that makes fallout 76 look like a decent bit of programming and you have to pay for it but the god of flash in the apple store aka puffin is gone and this is the only official flash player that apple hasn’t managed to discontinue so 3.5-4 stars just for being the last to survive
Love it
by Michtigkamm1234 on 2016/04/09 14:47
Perfect for using on iPhone. I had presentations I needed to watch for work while on the road. And this app made that all possible with flash. Cannot recommend enough. I especially like the mouse and drag features.
Excellent for online HW
by critixpoll on 2015/11/16 19:10
For lagging industries, like education, this app is great. When I saw my online HW for university required flash, I panicked. Then I Remembered I had purchased this app back in the days of flash and was relieved to see that its last update was a mere month ago! Thanks for continuing support!
Worth the price
by I fall down stairs on 2016/12/31 03:21
I use this pretty often.. had it so long that I don't remember what I paid to download.. can be a little laggy here and there, but it really depends what you use it for. Overall it's a great app with multiple uses :)
Perfect!!
by AnonymousTx385 on 2016/07/12 06:48
I am a nurse and have a ton of inservices to do online. My Iphone 6s wouldn't play the videos I needed to watch. Now thanks to this app I can watch the videos while I work and be able to stay caught up on mandatory inservices. Big thumbs up!! 😃😃😃
Need bug fixes for iOS 8
by PHOnos6516 on 2017/06/27 19:31
Needs to go back to Google as search engine. ASK is useless. Browser client spoofing function key causes app to crash. All fixed with IOS 10. Works like it's supposed to. Choose your search engine. Changing rating from 2 to 4 stars.
Didn’t expect...
by PiperAD on 2019/02/17 18:39
for this app to truly do what it promotes. However, it does. I hope to be able to use a flash player for video calls other than iPhones FaceTime in the near future.
Handy - but can be problematic for long uses
by DFWAngel on 2016/05/13 06:42
I use it to listen to recorded calls and every 20 or 30 minutes it will quit streaming which is annoying as hell. It would be nice if it didn't stop flash until the player was done.
Flash player for Apple devices
by Ale9Colin on 2017/01/18 16:41
This app is great I was able to go at some websites that uses flash player and it works, the only problem I had was a little frame rate problem and that's about it, this is great app to whoever wants to use flash player.
DagNabbitRabbit sprint IPhone 4S
by SPADRYLK on 2017/06/15 08:15
Works Flawlessly perfect. ~(4 years ago) Today June 14, 2017 Now Ive since upgraded to an iPhone 7+ and I will still steadfast in my resolution that Photon is simply the best Browser App to have on your phone when you realize that there are no other simple methods to view adobe or Flash player an indispensable system to view motion within your browser window. Quick, smart, fast to implement and certainly worth the few Dollars for their effort. DagNabbitRabbit Approved 🐰
Practical, fast and reliable
by Juanchaco on 2016/02/27 03:53
I've been using this app for years, specially for flash content or many websites that don't load well in safari. Work on make it load faster and then it will become a 5 star app.
I am disappointed
by blkmom20852 on 2019/03/14 08:47
I was looking for something that would automatically kick in while I was using any search engine on my iPad and this is not it. I must use this app as the actual portal and I didn’t like how the app’s screen did not fill iPad’s screen and it was difficult to maneuver through the website I needed the flash player for. Definitely not worth what I paid for & I’ll be cancelling my subscription.
Works like A obe.
by PRJ213 on 2017/08/01 09:22
This will allow me to do my fantasy football draft on my phone instead of having to get on the computer.
Update
by JOHNNYTEST23 on 2016/11/20 19:32
The app hasn't been updated for over a year. Can we get a new update with lots of new features and iOS 10 compatibility? Please and thanks
Wasted my money for buying and downloading this app!
by hunterxhuntergoniverse on 2019/10/05 02:27
I can't believe that this app didn't do what it was supposed to do. I bought this so that I can play myvegas facebook on my phone instead of my laptop. Right away the server was very slow! When I logged in on facebook to play the myvegas facebook, it said "Stage3D error: Context3D not available" Don't buy or download this app because it's not worth it at all!
Could not access website wanted
by eachnicknameIwantistaken on 2018/04/14 21:01
I bought for one reason - to use on citicards website because it uses flash for virtual account numbers. As soon as I hit the lightning bolt at the website, it says “website not available or blocked from access.” So, doesn’t work for what I purchased for and waste of my money. Then went and used free Puffin app which did work. Wished I did that first.
Can’t get it to work!
by Rmsbirm on 2016/08/21 14:39
I bought this app last week to listen to radio stations that need a flash player, but I select the station from the app and it won’t open, won’t play, it’s extremely frustrating! I have an iPhone 6. Does anyone have any tips? Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong? Our IT guy at work took a look at it and he couldn’t get it to do anything either. Please help, thanks! -Rebecca
Very Pleased
by Cailine on 2016/01/06 13:54
I don't typically write app reviews but I'm so pleased with this one that I felt compelled to do so. It's worth the money. Get it, especially for gaming. I can't wait to get my internet back up to try it on my iPad.
Bird lady💕
by Catlady44 on 2015/11/12 22:39
Thank you for developing Photon Flash👍🏻 Now I can play my games (iPhone) and also get into the Internet as well (where my other browser will tell me it can't open, Photon will open)😀
Amazing app
by Ali Alrahem on 2017/11/03 00:39
I like this app a lot but for the last couple day l noticed some slow with flash player l would recommend new update for iso 11 to fix this issue
