Change Bandwidth Settings for higher frame rates and 1 if you have a slower network or device. Appsverse Photon Browser is a powerful new browser with Flash capability designed to enhance your browsing experience on the iPad. We have been the #1 paid browser on the app store for several months and you can read reviews on the web on why we are the best Flash browser for the iPad. Photon Flash Browser provides a secure and web browsing environment that gives you anonymous browsing and also protects your iPad. Here are just some of them: 1. Flash browsing support - Photon Browser allows you to play Flash games such as free Facebook games, use Flash apps, listen to music streamed via Flash player and watch Flash video. - Browse Flash websites that would otherwise not display on the iPad and get latest Flash player support. - Fast native browsing for normal websites and remote browsing for Flash websites. 2. Multi-task by using Tabbed or multiple views during browsing - Supports unlimited tabbed browsing just like Firefox and Chrome. - Split view divides your screen in half to allow viewing of video on one half and browsing on another. - Full screen browsing maximizes your screen real estate. - Other views include picture in picture (PIP) and 3-screen (Trio) mode. 3. Fully featured powerful browser - Private browsing clears history, cookies and caches upon browser exit. - Anonymous browsing through our servers. - Awesome URL toolbar intelligently combines history and search keywords suggestions. - Share content via email or Facebook. - Brightness control for night time browsing. - Rotation lock for playing web based games. - Personalize your browser colors. 4. Others - Bookmarks support - Back/forward button reveals browsing history - Print web pages using AirPrint. - More innovative features to come 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. For terms, please go to



  • This app Is lousy.

    By sable4894
    Do not buy this app. The flash player doesn’t work as it should play. Not Really easy to use. I asked for a refund but Apple refuses to give it to me. Do not buy this app.
  • Problem

    Video is not working............
  • Doesn’t work for my purpose

    By Seastar1968
    Photon was recommended to me to watch the Big Brother live feeds. I have signed in to CBS All Access, then went to live feeds, then hit the lightening bolt in the top right corner. The chat comes up and the disclaimer too. But when the disclaimer goes away, all I get is a spinning circle. The feeds do not come up. This happens on both my older iPad and a brand new model. I am so disappointed. I used Puffer but it is going away tomorrow. I had high hopes of Photon working for this action, but it doesn’t. I paid for this app years ago and have never been able to use it for my liking. Maybe I am doing something wrong. If you can tell me how to remedy this, I will certainly be happy to give you a 5 star rating. Thank you.
  • Has met my needs

    By rmean66
    Has met my needs for about five years now - needed some kind of player to pick up the slack where Apple has let us down - this has worked well on a different number of iPads I have had over the years
  • Flash isn’t working

    By Donna442
    Started yesterday. I tried all the ports with no luck. I hope this will be fixed as I paid for this browser and use it daily. I have to have flash. Please fix.
  • Google is the default and only search option now?

    By TalonRF
    There is now no option to choose another search engine nor is there any possible way to contact the company to inquire about another option? Wow - and not in a good way.
  • wasted money

    By ali nicki gandi
    a waste in money do not buy it i tried playing a facebook game on it and it didnt work and i do i have flash drive for my ipad
  • Very Disappointed

    By N.O Saints Fan
    Does not work for the browsing I need it for which puffin works really great but I’m forced to get a new browsing app for work to keep using my ipad. Being that puffin won’t be around much longer it will be hard to find an app that works as good as there’s does.
  • Diggy, iPhone, iPad users NO IT WONT WORK

    By Teri1111
    Nope it doesn’t work with the game! It opens the flash version, but it won’t full screen, it won’t scroll in the game to allow you to play.
  • Glitch

    By Profzoom
    Not working. Every search no matter what it is comes back sorry this site is no longer available
  • Disappointed

    By AWOLapp
    Crashes frequently. Only bookmarked and address bar-listed sites work in Search for the last two weeks. Will be looking for another browser.
  • Site unavailable

    By Buplee
    I tried to use the site which directed to a support page. The message states the site is no longer available.
  • Works great

    By nh-kteacher
    I was skeptical about purchasing this app. I bought a new iPad. This worked on my old curriculum that needed flash media player. Thank you!!!
  • Does not work with cengage on iPad

    By Juslb86
    I purchased this app in order to access online course materials through cengage. I keep receiving a message that says “this website is blocked”. Waste of money, do not bother purchasing for access to online course materials.
  • Very happy

    By jdblack79
    Very happy with this app keep up the good work and dont stop updating....better then any browser made for iPad or iPhone
  • Great app

    By Derek Dd
    Never had a problem with this app. Always plays great quality.
  • Flash player

    By Mugginmegan
    I was having trouble viewing an online course I am enrolled in on my iPad and I remembered using photon browser when it first came out. After downloading and updating the version I had I have had no issues with viewing my course. This app has been a life saver for me.
  • Doesn’t play video —avoid

    By carrera206
    V. 6.14. No updates for over a year and now Photon has stopped working and will not play video. Suggest one doesn’t download until this gets fixed.
  • Didn’t work for main reason purchased

    By urbanvouge
    I do video chatting through an online website that requires flash for work which is why I bought this app, however it says the website is blocked. (No it’s not an “inappropriate” site) so I’m kinda annoyed. If you’re buying it for a specific purpose you might lose your $5 so just be prepared to be disappointed
  • Fast browser

    By Renominates
    Excellent browser for flash videos.
  • Photon Was Great For Awhile

    By ClaudeET
    When I first discovered Photon a few years ago, it was a GREAT app for playing games on the iPad. However, the last couple of weeks it has been lagging in performance. Not being able to play some of your favorite games and share with others has been disappointing. It was great while it lasted, but now I’m trying to find another app to take its place😩😩😩😩😩😩
  • Disappointed

    By Coops Mom18
    Paid for this browser after reading how it supports flash and was excited to be able to play Facebook games on my iPad finally! Unfortunately I am still not able to with this browser and sorry I wasted my money
  • Doesn’t support every flash

    By igster187
    Can’t open my website to see my x-rays on ipad pro but i can open it with a mac safari app...
  • Needed this to work for school

    By kevinmust
    It does not work as advertised I really want my money’s back on this one this app is unable to split screen on the iPad Pro 11 inch model. Please refund my money. Unable to load Canvas videos for college lectures.
  • Update Needed

    By Babysmurfs1
    It's time for some updating for 2019.
  • Not a secure connection

    By Nickname 154357864357
    I need a flash player for my IPad to take some OSHA classes, and the website I use for work said this was an unsecured connection and wouldn’t give me access.
  • Garbage browser

    By PopsGio
    I just bought this browser thinking if it costs $5 it must be more up to date then Puffin, within the first 30 seconds of using the browser I noticed it’s complete trash, has a late response time. If the company paid me to use this browser, I would still delete the app. Puffin is way better and would pay for that over this.
  • App went downhill → does nothing

    By Lael324
    This app worked for a while then stopped working. I can’t get any live stream. Even the simplest websites won’t load. I contacted app “support” several times and no one ever responded. I think they left town. Do not waste your money.
  • Not Perfect, but functional

    By spburnie
    It allows me to watch Training videos that are presented in flash on my company website using my iPad. No it is not perfect, but it does allow me to get credit for those annoying TOD videos they require me to take even on my iPhone if needed. For that reason alone, it is worth 4 stars.
  • Error ?

    By IL0VE.58.70
    My games are now saying update flash ? I think a new update for this app would be good ?
  • Great for watching training videos for work

    By abenavid2
    Couldn’t watch the training videos that my job provided but with Photon watching them was a snap. Great product for iPads especially if your ipad is your laptop.
  • Junk

    By shellbless
    I want my money back I just paid for Junk that doesn't work...
  • Brattts

    By brattts4
    Bought this to be able to use the flash player and it just tells me the website is denied. Waste of my money, had to go another route.
  • True flash

    By PathMax
    Good browser that offers true flash if needed.
  • Photon

    By Waldowiggles
    Only browser with flash that I find that works on iPad.
  • Beware.

    By puffintheidiot
    Not all Flash game websites work. They also give an error telling us that the website is not supported when you enable flash. I hope I get a refund.
  • Doesn’t work

    By @blinkone82trash
    I have had no luck with the flash
  • Doesn’t work

    By Purple rider
    I just purchased & it won’t even load my page. I clicked the lightning bolt but still nothing. I want a refund, but I’m gonna nailed to request it says no access to page.
  • Life Saver

    By DMartin405
    I acquired an iPad not knowing much about iOS, but it came as a packaged deal with my phone and I needed something for school. When I realized my school utilized flash and iOS didn’t support it, I was quite distraught until I read about Photon Browser. It has saved me time, money and headaches! I only wish now that I could copy text in flash mode, but I can live without that functionality for now...😏
  • don’t waste you money

    By Sameer1980
    i just wasted my $5 it doesn’t work it’s freezes a lot plus it doesn’t work with flash websites or may b works by mistake it’s will freezes a lot or if by mistake the video plays it doesn’t play in the normal speed u feel like u watching a movie on a slow mo please please please don’t download this browser
  • Worked in past but not newer iOS

    By gutsylady
    I was able to use this in the past to get onto sites for work and that required flash for videos... well now have Citrix server access and tired to use so could do a drivers ed course with aarp. Wont allow me to use... think the last update some time ago. Wish they would come up with a fix so could access sites again.
  • Why

    By M.S. Rainey
    This has proven useless for me and I would like a refund. I got my iPad Pro for school but needed flash for my math class, and while this browser DOES use flash, it will not allow me to access my keyboard so I STILL can’t do my homework. Please help or refund???
  • Photon is at least a way around iOS

    By Clusterfok
    iOS doesn’t allow for flash games on iPad. What a drag. Photon is a way to bridge that gap...kind of. I am able to play a lot of the 16-bit games, but they are choppy at best, regardless of what settings I use and sometimes, you can’t even play the game. Just “touching” something on the screen doesn’t always make it move; it depends on the game. You can also use Photon in regular mode and it’s a fine browser. I might come back and give it a higher rating if the choppiness disappears and the “touch” issues improve because again, at least it’s something.
  • Outdated app

    By Sam in Mass
    Developers want to SELL new app, not SERVICE existing ones. Have not updated app since 2017!!!!!! A lot of IOS have been release since, yet NO updates on this app.
  • Don’t get it

    By Judas147wolf
    I regret it can’t watch anything. When I pay for something I expect it to work but I should have known it wouldn’t work as it’s hasn’t been updated in a year
  • Pretty worthless

    By Awesome2525
    Tried to access and they actually block the site. When I was finally able to get it, the site was actually able to see it as a mobile iPad. DOn’t bother with this.
  • Works poorly

    Can’t get it to work on simple site with flash.
  • Very useful

    By Tchahattou
    Works well, keep it up!
  • Retaining page in flash mode

    By Accessory Guy
    Disappointed, I used it to access work website that requires flash. The browsers is very slow, and doesn’t maintain the web page if I have to switch between programs causing me to have to log back in to the web page each time I go back to this browser. Needs to be better.
