    No problem, this should take you straight to the play store.

    These Dev. at adobe and all the OEM smartphone manufacturers are greedy little punks. my reasoning is the LG motion has more than enough power to run flash but because Metro is only selling it for 149.95 LG told the people over at adobe to not make it available on google play store. The Samsung Admire another phone that was more than capable of running flash player 11 but Samsung told adobe to not make it available a matter of fact the only way you could get it to work was to root the phone than install it and you also had to replace all the files in the LIB folder and than change there permissions
    Look at the specs for the LG Esteem and compare them to the LG Motion the only thing that is better on the Esteem is, it's a 1/2 inch bigger other than that the Motion blow the Esteem away that freaking 1/2 inch cost 200 to 300 more but because you payed 400 for the Esteem you can download adobe flash from the play store.
    Sorry for the rant folks and thanks to the people that posted the link to download flash player

    I just bought my wife this phone and she has flash. I signed into the play store and looked under "My apps" and it was there, I then installed it and it works fine from what I can tell and her phone is not rooted.

    However, before I found the adobe flash app in "My apps" I did a search and the playstore did in fact return zero results... That's when I looked in "My apps". :)

    I put the .apk on my phone, and when I try to install it I get a "unable to install parsing error".

    Any help? Also, it comes up not available in my country on the play store?
