Notsure Adobe Flash - side with "good" success

So we know that Android removed native support for Flash. But lately its just been annoying. Example, I was going to attempt my "dishanywhere" account to stream my DISH network stuff. No go. Needs Flash. Like many I have Amazon Prime. No go. Needs Flash. I was sending some JibJab videos. Needed a PC. Why? Again. Needs Flash.

Read some methods to sideload flash, but they all seem sketchy or only mildly successful. This forum is getting bigger with lots of knowledgeable folks. Anybody get flash working to they extend they feel its fully supported or at list mostly supported. I understand flash is dying, but its not dying soon enough, and nothing able able to access sites with it, is just annoying at times.

Thanks for the suggestions...

Definitely try Puffin browser. The flash is cloud based, so it's always up to date. The only unfortunate thing is if the server goes down or can't connect, browser will fail to work (since it's cloud based). You can also download direct to drop box instead of the device.

Yeah, but I was wandering if anyone here has tested it.
(I trust you guys more, many times seen good reviws of something on the App store and noticed the reality is sometimes quite opposite of what they say..)

I played the simpsons tribute clip "The Sorrows" on fox flash, boat browser, and the built in Internet app and had no issues playing the clip. Both boat browser and fox flash went straight to the clip after a little buffering. Only Internet showed a play button and a time line like you would probably see browsing on a regular computer. Internet wins based on my admittedly short test. I'll try something from Zombo next.

One more thing about the Fox Flash free version; that ad on it will get in the way of the some of the content you may be viewing.

Thank you! I'm aware of the ad-problem, but I was thinking of getting the paid pro-version (no ads). How was the Flash Fox otherwise as a browser?

Pretty slick looking. I'd have to use it a bit longer to have a firm opinion plus the paid version is said to have more options for customization available so I'm going to check out the developers website before I pop for it. I like it so far. That visit to Zombo made me think about what I might have been missing on other sites I visit.

It's one of the oldest memes on the Internet. Since 1999.

Another classic flash site is homestarrunner.com.

Homestarrunner I already knew about. Does anyone know of a Flash game site that still has curveball on it?

Thank You for testing it I'm going to pick up my Note 3 next week and based on this, I think the Flash Fox is worth of paying for.

Tried to install the old adobe version per earlier posts today (finally). Neither the stock browser or Chrome are recognized by amazon.com/prime to have the flash installed to play movies. Not sure if I have to reboot the N3. Guess I could try that. Was trying to avoid install another browser ...just.. for using flash. what a pain

Which version of puffin. the free? or you paid $2.99?

EDIT: I installed firefox and zombo.com played and I was able (using desktop mode) to play amazon.com/prime movies. those its clumsy method to manage the interface. Not really optimized for a mobile device, but it does appear to work. firefox used to be a giant bloated pig, not sure if it still is. not sure about puffin or the others. just want simple/clean user experience to watch amazon.com/prime movies

I have the paid version. It suits my needs and don't need to worry about side loading flash anymore.

As long as you found something that works for you, that's great news.
