There is currently no way to get Flash on your iDevice, not even for the jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Enters CloudBrowse, an iPhone app available in the US App Store which enables browsing full Flash-enabled websites via a shared web browser on a remote server.

CloudBrowse may not be as good as Skyfire for Android and Windows phones, but hey, it works. You open up a website, all the Flash content on that website is processed on an off-site CloudBrowse server which then displays the Flash content in a format which your iDevice is capable of displaying. Most of the Flash content is really choppy and lags quite a bit, but it’s better than having nothing at all.
CloudBrowse is basically running a shared version of Mozilla Firefox instance on a remote computer to deliver all this. I even gave Silverlight-based sites a shot but they didn’t work as the Moonlight version of Silverlight was either too outdated to run current SL sites, or was not installed in the first place.
Check out the video below which demonstrates some flash based web sites like Hulu, YouTube and FlashGames247 on CloudBrowse for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
