Important notes - PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING:
- REMEMBER TO CLICK ON the "Lightning Bolt" button to enter streaming mode to view Flash sites. Otherwise, you will see the standard 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.
- Use the number settings under Settings->Bandwidth to adjust the bandwidth profile to deliver the best experience for Flash. The optimum profile for each user will differ depending on their network and also dependent on whether you are browsing Flash websites, watching a Flash video or playing a game.
- We support sites that block traffic from certain cluster of IP address such as Hulu and other local TV station using our advance local access feature.
- If you have a slow Internet connection such as over a slow 3G network, remote browsing feature may have slow performance. Flash mode works best over Wifi in a broadband network.
- 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 3 business days and in some cases within 1 business day as most of users who have contacted us with questions.

Good app. Needs improvements.
I downloaded this app with high hopes from all the 5* reviews, suffices to say I'm not impressed. While the app works as advertised I couldn't help but notice some functions it won't support. So here is some changes I think would make this the best browser out.
The main function I tested was to see if I could stream a movie from the browser to my tv via Apple TV. This attempt failed in a big way. While my safari browser not only streams a movie from the browser to my Apple TV, I'm also aloud to minimize the browser to play some of my favorite trading card apps while watching the movie.
********Another annoyance was that should you exit the browser for any reason to check a text etc... The flash will reset what ever you was doing.*******
The function I met with this browser was audio only via my attempt to stream, this was very displeasing. As Apple TV is a big part of my media experience I will have no use for this browser outside of games, or on the go video watching at relatives or in the car.
My game experience was better then expected. While some games still proved sluggish or overpowering for the browser. It held its own with less impressive games making it useful if you use kongragate a lot.
Web 10/10 (multiple functions made this browser impress me)
If you want a good gaming browser with multiple functionality for browsing and playing at the same time. Then this is the app for you.
FarmVille on the iPad, Whaaat? Thank you for making my dream a reality! I have been using Photon for about 3 months now even saving it for last to try after reading reviews on flash supported browsers. It has completely replaced my playing method for my Flash games when I am at home. No longer do I use my pc and wait for slow loading times. Even though I have yet to figure out how to save my data to local access for quicker loading. I have tried what I thought was it and it never saves. Nevertheless it still loads faster with less hang ups than anything else I have ever played flash on.
It also consumes a tremendous amount of data on flash mode. I am able to play during my work shift because I have a lot of down time so over the course of 5 or 6 hrs of flash being left on I can use on avg 500+ mb a day. I really do not think there is any way around this however since flash isn't supported on The iPad. I actually had to up my cellular usage from 6 gb a month to 14 gb a month. I also thought I may be able to save some of this data if flash mode always didn't turn off after 2 hrs on the dot (save reloading game data) I cannot find it in settings to change this 2 hr time frame. If anyone knows, please tell me. Everything is minor adjustments but Photon is wonderful thank you for it!
It's basically a web browser that you use instead of Safari. I would have personally preferred a Safari plug-in. Instead you use the Photon browser, and navigate to the web site the flash player will be coming through on, then you activate a type of converter that re-streams your content through Photon's servers, which would be ok if you could disable the need to have to touch the screen every so often and that annoying beep notification. If you don't touch the screen, the flash player stops and you must start completely over. Also there are simple ad-ons that could have been implemented to block ads, adware, pop-ups (though they have one that works about 10% of the time for me) and some cosmetic stuff. Bottom line, it works, but it's not for everyone. Having paid $5 for this I would think they could do away with the "touch the screen or I will stop re-streaming" option. If that happened, I would give it 5 stars. It works but it's sort of a pain to use. It should be as easy as browsing to your destination and clicking play. If the developers could change just a few things, I'd shout about this program on the highest mountain or at least recommend it to my customers for ipad tech support.
