Flash for iPad

That's Right... Use FLASH on your iPAD!

Thanks so much, Karen, for showing me Splashtop Remote: an app available in the App Store for $2.99!  I'm the type that has to 'see it to believe it.'  So, when Karen was telling me how she uses her iPad as an air tablet in her classroom (wireless writing pad $399 and remote), I was super excited to try it out.  Then, she further explained how her students could now play the once forbidden Flash games by using her iPad.  Of course, as soon as I got home, I had to check it out.

It took me about ten minutes to set up the install:
1.  Download and Install Splashtop to your computer (free download, click here)
2.  Visit the App Store and install your new purchase.
3.  Know your computer's ip address (click here)
4.  Open the Splashtop App on your iPad/iPod and follow the directions

*Please play the CinchCast above to hear more about installing the app and the possible uses in the class.

Whoo-Hoo!  Now, you can:

Access your full iTunes™ or Windows® Media library to watch videos and play music stored on your PC.
Play online Flash,as well as PC and Mac games
Work on your computer documents, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, from your tablet or phone.


  1. Wow! That is great. I assume this app will let you just read Flash content we currently don't have access to on the iPad. Thanks. I will try it out soon.

  2. You're welcome! You'll love it!! I was able to play games and view interactive features. I could use my iPad and navigate flash games... awesome!

    Let me know what you think after you give it a go.


  3. I cannot get it to reach my computer. That is the error it gave me at school and is now giving me at home. Any suggestions? I am bummed. I really want AR to work on this thing.

  4. Did you get my comment on the TBA blog?

  5. Wow! Just got an iPad and am so thankful for this info!!!

  6. Thank you so much for this information! The app is $4.99 now, but I still think it's worth it! =)
