This browser ruined me!
I started using Puffin because I wanted to access Flash games on my iPad. I'm no Flash fan by any means and I look forward to it becoming unnecessary but for now there are still a few things that just can't be done without it, many games being the one for me. I tried several different browsers before I settled on Puffin as being the best I found for using Flash on iOS. When I started using it I had no idea just how fast it actually was. But I began noticing how impatient I had become trying to do anything with any other browser. I usually used Chrome, Firefox or Opera (and Safari when needed) and saw that I was beginning to click several times on the same link or button to try to get something to happen. Eventually I found myself cursing out loud at my iPad every time I had to use any browser besides Puffin. Now Puffin is my go to and I rarely use the others. I still use them when I need particular features but find myself doing so less and less and expect that eventually I'll rarely use anything but Puffin on my iPad. I only wish it was available on my iMac. Maybe it's not the perfect browser for everyone and if so I suggest you not use it for too long or you may find it impossible to go back to what you had been using before.
Although puffin is the best browser i have seen for flash games on the ipad it is definitely buggy this past month or so. There must have been an update and since the i have had all sorts of problems with it. First of all some new pop up when you try to play yoworld on facebook, it says true, under that leave and under that stay on this page. It's incredibly annoying to have to click on that every single time i try to do anything on the game.
Worse yet it started freezing constantly whch means constantly refreshing and having to click on that pop up again and again. I keep getting nothing but a white screen, the log off button won't fully open without refreshing several times. I've deleted the browser and reloaded it a few times to no avail. Up to 4-6 weeks ago I'd have given it 5 stars but not until they fix this bug. I don't play any other facebook games so don't know if there are problems with other games.
These issues seem to be unique to facebook. However like i said so far i haven't been able to find another browser that really works for flash games on the ipad.
The Flash feature is BUGGY
Every time I use the adobe flash feature on Puffin Browser, I always know that it's going to either crash or freeze when I first start using it. When I reload the page it's fine it starts working properly but literally EVERYTIME I use it, it's going to seem fine, but about 10 minutes in and it will crash and I'll have to reload the page for it to start working properly without crashing. Normally this wouldn't be problem, but when I'm playing a online MMO flash game and it crashes before I save my progress, it really makes me rage at my phone. Normally I'd just forget this app and download another app with the adobe flash feature on it, but there isn't one to my knowledge. So I'm stuck with browser, where when I do something that involves adobe flash and cause it to lag and then freeze up. It's a real pain to deal with because I use this app to play flash games on a cool website, but I always expect it to crash, because it does. Oh btw It's a good browser when your not using the adobe flash feature on it, but I'd recommend Google Chrome if you want a really fast browser.
