- 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.

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.

Great App; read for details
This app allows you to view the web as it is supposed to be seen...not the web how the Apple iPhone sees it (restricted).
An enable flash button reloads the page allowing you to view any and all (havent found one yet that Photon didnt like) web pages.
The only thing that could use an improvement is that while in flash mode any scroll buttons on the right of the browser window becomes a little hard to click on without hitting Photon's nav buttons. If they could fix this there would be nothing that I could complain about. This issue can sometimes be avoided by enabling full page view.
Privacy settings are great.
Speed is superfast as long as you have decent wi-fi or a better than average cell reception (dont try Photon on anything lower then 3G).
I would buy this again and I've already shown numerous friends and family whom also purchased this app.
A great tool that enables your iPhone to literally be a computer in your pocket/purse.
The flash app to beat!
I was impressed with the puffin browser free. It was slightly faster then my desktop but not anywhere near as fast as photon! Photon is so fast that with a flash video and html video put side to side, the html is only alittle bit faster. Even on high quality video doesnt slow down at all. My only complaint is the fact that on flash mode the photon browser takes 1 or 2 seconds to respond to your touch.
Update: continue to be impressed, there app update fixed some very irritating isues with this app and boosted overall flash performance. I wasnt expecting an update anytime soon but i got one, and even better a fully baked one.
Update 2: im shocked this update was given an update in so short of a time and it brings the feature i have been wanted sense i got this. Full screen video! There isnt any other true flash player ios app that allows for fullscreen video
I have to say that this browser is so convenient to stream live sports. I use "thefirstrow" for sports streaming and it works great... especially with the recent update. Only flaw is it resets the webpage when you leave the browser. It can be annoying at times especially if all I want to do is unlock my screen orientation. Other than that, excellent Flash browser for my iOS products (iPhone 5 & iPad Retina)
❗PLEASE NOTE: People who stream from "thefirstrow sports", those messages that tell you to update your flash player are actually ads. You must click the little "x" that is faintly showing on the top corner of each ad. Eventually, you will have your match showing in full screen AFTER you exit all of the mini ads that show up. THANKS PHOTON! We NEED you on iOS forever!! Keep it up!!
