Love it but it needs some work
First off I really do like this browser a lot. It's definitely one of my favs because of the near desktop functionality it offers however there are a few major things that need some work before I'll consider it my primary browser (which is currently Chrome). First, there's no way to sync or backup your open tabs like there is in Chrome & Firefox & even Safari. The functionality doesn't even appear to exist via plugin which really stinks. There's nothing more frustrating than having tabs open that you're using and working on then come back at a later time to see them all gone. There's no restore closed tab functionality either (hint, hint).
That leads me to my next major problem. It seems that more often than not when the browser gets updated I almost always lose my open tabs! It's very frustrating to open the browser and see a "you've been upgraded" message then see that all of your tabs are gone. The only solution is to turn off automatic app updates which means I'll have to manually go in and update the apps periodically and almost certainly avoid updating puffin for fear of losing open tabs. Is this asking for too much??
So Far... Puffin has the lead
So I just spent the last two hours switching back and forth between Puffin and Photon. I must say the cloud computing model of Puffin is definitely working better on my device (iPad Air 2 128GB). When using Photon it lags like crazy in "flash mode" and also doesn't play flash movies very well which is what I have a need for. 1 thing I do like about photon is the IP forwarding feature which I haven't seen in this app YET. Basically that will grant you access to location restricted content. I tried both apps using my iPad connected to my iPhone (6 plus) Verizon LTE as a hotspot with two bars and also tried using both of them connected to Holiday Inn Express wifi. Puffin seems to run a somewhat better but I would love to have the IP forwarding feature here. Other than that I'm anxious to see what it can do on my home network. I will be keeping both apps to see if anyone of them ends up taking the cake here.
pretty dang good
So I have three quick topics to cover, but let me start by saying this browser works really well
Number 1 (bugs/annoying things) I can't use my Zagg keyboard with any flash related games. Puffin will also sporadically (usually once every 20-40 minutes) refresh when I am watching a movie/playing a game.
Number 2 (movies) Puffin is usually pretty good at watching movies, but every once and a while it will get a little glitchy
Number 3 (recommendations) First anyone looking to get flash on their I-whatever, if your device isn't the Iphone 6, the Ipod 5th or any ipad newer then the 2nd gen, chances are this will not work well. For anyone with the above devices I recommend that you get this, any that don't I recommend you try the free version first
