+ Photon for iPad is #1 in Utilities in US, UK and top 30 overall app.
+ Photon plays flash videos, games and flash websites.

Appsverse Photon Browser is a powerful new browser specifically designed to enhance your browsing experience on the iPhone and iPod Touch. It is packed with innovative features. 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 and watch Flash video inline using its remote cloud browse mode.
- Browse Flash websites that would otherwise not display on the iPhone.
- Play music that streams through a Flash player.
- Read news that require Flash support.
- Press the “Lightning” icon on the bottom right navigation bar when you encounter a Flash website on the iPhone or iPod Touch.
- Combines fast native browsing for normal websites and remote browsing for Flash websites. Switch between the 2 modes using the lightning bolt button (for Flash) or the web globe button (for native browsing).
- Support different mode such as pointer mode for precision that makes your iPhone acts like a mouse pad. Supports touch mode for scrolling and touch/click. Supports drag mode for dragging around game maps.
- Zoom in flash. PLEASE WAIT a second or two for the zoom to update before zooming again on iPhone and iPod touches.
- We support audio. PLEASE MAKE sure your mute switch is not on.

2. Fully featured powerful browser
- Private browsing clears history, cookies and caches upon browser exit.
- Anonymous browsing through our servers.
- Share content via email.
- Brightness control for night time browsing.
- Rotation lock for playing web based games.
- Personalize your browser by choosing from thousands of colors.

3. Others
- Bookmarks support
- Print web pages using AirPrint.
- More innovative features to come

- When you encounter a Flash website, REMEMBER TO CLICK ON the "Lightning Bolt" button to enter Flash streaming mode. Otherwise, you will see the standard Adobe 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.

- If you have a slow Internet connection such as over a slow 3G network, remote browsing feature may have slow performance even though we have made great technological improvements to support Flash over low bandwidth. Flash mode works best over Wifi in a broadband network. Just because you have Wifi does not mean you have a fast network. Wifi is fast enough but your bottleneck is the wired connection that your Wifi sits on. However, you can still use Photon as a fast native browser for your regular browsing.

- 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 1-3 business days.

  • Excellent app for flash apps

    by Personal-trainer007

    Excellent app for flash apps

  • Good, but. . .

    by Mz. Terious

    It lets me load Flash-based websites which is what I wanted. But a side scroll bar would make this a five-star app.

  • Love app, questionable support

    by ItzJayBay

    Great app. But current version has problem with the back button. It sends you back two pages instead of one, and if you hit forward after, you miss the page in between where you were and the page you backed too far from. Especially annoying in search pages because you have to constantly retype searches since the back button sends you too far. Emailed the developer and got no response so I'm docking a star for support and another for the glitch.

  • Works!

    by CorreyBra

    Love it.

  • Awesome!!!

  • Life Changing

    by Diamond Gems92

    I love this app! I do everything on my IPhone and had gotten really frustrated when I couldn't access pages because I didn't have flash player. This app allowed me to view everything on web pages a if I were at my PC. Yes, 2-3 pages did freeze but after a few second of reloading it worked properly. I definitely got more than my money's worth!

  • Great app!

    by Loudog75

    Does what is promised, I have found many uses for this app.

  • Play rpg online?

    by kpasa333

    You'll definitely want to purchase this app. It's the only app I've found that goes you much control and variety. Plus being on the go and needing to log into my online game with no flash on iPhone. Tried other apps, can't come close to compare with Photon. A plus is if you have any suggestions chances are you'll see them in next update. ^_~

  • Best

  • Awesome for DailyShow

    by ntblood5

    & Colbert, any Comedy Central website video. Not to mention SNL & NBC news.

  • Awesome

    by Mohammad_s


  • Best way to view Flash websites on IOS

    by JonBeez

    Also a great way to test a website remotely for website developers. It basically runs the website off a remote computer and displays it on your device. Not perfect unless you have high speed Internet but it's the best I have seen.

  • Works as advertised

    by Jigginup


  • Super App

    by Troy O'Neal

    The flash player app does work. It will let you play games that require flash.

  • Best app ever

    by NinjaSlayer296

  • Update!!!

    by Acid1372

    Last update about one year ago!!!

  • Doesn't work

    by Simpsons3964628294


  • Choppy audio

    by Vortex1195

    No matter what I listen to the audio is choppy. App stops on its own when in use. Hard to navigate.


    by Puzzlesperson

    The app writers of this software nickel and dime you. Who on earth charges extra for an iPad version?! The flash rendering is slow, laggy, requires an Internet connection, and will frustrate you even during the most basic of tasks.

  • Not working!!!

    by Cool Zack

    Too buggy and not working at all I want a refund ASAP!!!

  • Bad app

    by eliquad

    Even if facebook text notifications are turned off this app allows text notifications to come any time of day or night to your phone. The app support stated that they have no control over this problem. You can get text charges, etc.. stay away from app. Does not support browsing but for yahoo, facebook, and a couple obsolete apps.

  • Bad app

    by gEygDzcH

    Slow and choppy flash. Dolphin or Puffin is much better.

  • Works c Medscape

    by PathMax


  • Great, but...

    by CU865

    I think this needs better game controls. Like with the common shift, esc, etc. and a joystick (like Puffin). Do you think you can do this? I have an iPod 4G with iOS 6.1.3

  • runs slow

    by Mandak222

    i love the app but it runs really slow please update it and fix this please and then i will give 5 stars i use this app for my school work

  • iPhone 5 Laggy Video

    by DjMechanicMpls

    Terrible video. Usable but not smooth and enjoyable as flash was intended. This app seems to be a rote server application which hosts flash decoding remotely. The result is a choppy experience. Waste of money.

  • Horrible. They have automated responses

    by Ibeatppl

    Automated reviews are the only reason this app is getting any downloads. Ads are crazy. Cant visit a single site. The site doesnt even load only the ads load. Redirects me even when i disable it. No pass word rememberance. 0/100 worst app ive ever seen. Pathetic

  • Life changer!

  • Don't waste your money

    by Dar Radio

    I bought this app because I wanted to watch videos that require flash. Unfortunately, this app either can't open the page or freezes and crashes every time. Also, the pop-up blocker doesn't work. I hope someone creates a better app.

  • Photon Browsing

    by LionSnuggler

    It works fast and is very convenient, but in one of the games I play pulling out the keyboard at a certain scene crashes the app forcing me to start the whole game over.

  • Horrible

    by Sullivan-twins

    I purchased this app because my 30 day trial ended for puffin another web browser and was extremely disappointed, was $4 down the drain. The pictures were laggy and slow when I tried to play a video. Puffin another flash app allowed you to open a separate video player to watch the video and is way clearer. Don't listen to the other reviews they tricked me don't let them trick you!!!

  • Good

    by Kieranhoop

    This app is everything it promises to be, though the experience isn't as good as chrome or safari.

  • Works just fine!

    by Player 

    Perfect. If you're experiencing FPS issues, please upgrade your internet... All you need is 5 Mbps download speed for it to work.

  • Lag

    by Zambur


  • Awesome

    by Joe Maranah

    I thought apple devices couldn't do anything with flash! Well this app makes it so you can. Be sure to download it, the $2.99 is worth it.

  • Okay

    by XxOctober05xX

    Not the best still needs a lot of work on the crashing and I only bought this app to play online but crashes often very poor disappointed no updates UPDATE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! And I will change my review

  • Absolute Junk

    DO NOT! DO NOT waste your money on this piece of crap! The Biggest scam ever!

  • Absolute Junk

    DO NOT! DO NOT waste your money on this piece of crap! The Biggest scam ever!

  • Almost perfect

    by Haapy dude

    Flash mode times out after 15 minutes so if you are enjoying music or video and don't touch the screen it will just quit flash mode. Not cool. A toggle to change the time out to an hour or more would be great. Also it does not multitask so if you need to send a text or open another program it quits playing the flash media.

  • The Reviewer

    by Michem55

    Very good so far... But when trying to play a browser game and it ask me for my character name, it doesnt bring up the keyboard, so i cant enter infomation, and cant play game.


    by Gothiclove22

    The adds are the worst part. Good app though, worked perfectly until the adds showed up.

  • Works great

    by Guinness4breakfast

    This app works great and they keep making it better!

  • Love this app!!

    by Sarah Hello

    This app is great! I've been looking for an app that plays flash videos!!! I can finally watch my asian dramas on viki!!

  • 5 stars ....if it wasent for one thing

    by Dc5519

    This app is great and works perfectly. My only problem is when the screen times out and you hafto touch the screen to keep it from freezing. I connect my phone to a tv to watch videos so you can imagine it gets old getting up every 5 minutes to tap the screen. If you could turn this an option to turn it off it would be 5 stars

  • Don't waste your money!

    by Dbman115

    This thing is a giant pile of fermented horse crap there are so many problems with this app if you but it prepare to have a ragetastic day.

  • REMOVE TIMER!!!!!!!!!!! Then5stars

    by General69

    This app is your best chance for a flash player. However, it's very annoying that I need to touch the screen every ten minutes to prevent it from closing down.

  • Fantastic

    by Spiderman_1

    I love it on my touch 4. Better than having flash. Please make a kindle edition.

  • Horrible

    by Funawesomegreat111

    There's no flash!

  • Best Flash App Ever.

    by kbk316

    Works great showing flash videos on the web.

  • Pretty great app

    by TheReaper1134

    Some keyboard controls are faulty, but other than that, It's pretty good.

  • A bit on the slow side.

    by Chemhasguhnar

    I have Photon and Puffin and to be honest puffin runs faster. I bought Photon thinking it would run faster, but it doesn't.

  • Love it

    by Angelina8711111

    Helps me chat on sites I wouldn't otherwise be able to use the pop up chat's awesome!

  • IOS 7

    by C O N T R O L S P L S !

    Great app, but ios 7 update would make it even better!

  • Finally... Let there be flash

    by He Row You Ee

    Flash streaming is epic on LTE. There is nowhere on the web or Internet that I can't go anymore. Well played... Well played.

  • Much needed for Apple products

    by VocoLight

    Essential app to watch my movies when I'm on tour. Love it! Thanks :)

  • Awesome

    by Adnan7995

    I love all the updates need a little bit fast serving.BTW the app needs 5 stars.

  • Awesome

    by Pourya pj

    I have been using this app for years now. One of the best apps out there. I mainly use it to watch new episodes of south park! Lol

  • Works!

    by Nschlos115

    Works great for an online course!

  • Useful for what i use it for. But..

    by Meto246

    Please update. I want to give it 5 stars, but its just not. Make it is more reliable, the picture quality of the videos I watch is sometimes Unacceptable, and theres nothing wrong with my internet speed. Make it more integrated with the software. Take Apple's Advice and update. Thanks.

  • Love it

    by Donna Thomas

    Does everything I need it to do for work and entertainment.

  • Wonderful

    by AndreaWatkins

    Great app

  • Error

    by tego#1Fan

    It is giving me redirecting errors when i try to go to any page.

  • Amazing

    by The dying monkey in the corner

    Sure it's not perfect and it works better with some stuff than others but it does what it says

  • Works great for me

    by Midnightrid3r88

    I love this app! Watch a lot of my shows on my phone now. :)

  • Fix It

    by VicC.

    Browser is great for flash sites, but it needs to stop going back to the appsverse homepage whenever an alert comes through on the phone. Very frustrating. Also, need to be able to set a home page and keep it there. They want their page to constantly come up so they can push ads.

  • not 5 stars !

    by smiley_10

    you can tell that all of these other reviews are from scammers or from the people who made this app. the app does play .flv or .swf flash video, but plays it very choppy. you can't play games period, its just not fast enough. i needed it for school because i had to sell my laptop and all i need to do is watch these videos which are low quality anyway so this app plays them just fine, but if your trying to playback high quality video this app is not for you.

  • best out of a field of one.

    by Threepoundjelly

    It's ok. You could say its the best flash work-around available , but there again it's also the only functional flash work around available. Native flash would be much better, but we can't have that.

  • Great app but has bugs

    by M.priest

    Great app good features full flash comparability definitely worth the buy but couldn't hurt to wait for an update the picture skips at times the app occasionally crashes even with high memory no tasks and single video pages but keep up with clearing cookies etc it works fine but my only big big complaint is the text box hardly ever works right and tweaks ill get used to it though lol

  • Awesome! But...

    by CU865

    This app is great! I love the idea of streaming a Flash screen to the iDevice, but there are a few problems. Sometimes, the clicking controls don't register and makes it almost impossible to play games. I would also be handy if you could have the arrow/wasd keys somewhere so it isn't covering up half the screen. Other than those, it is just awesome!

  • Good App

    by NicknamesAre4Noobs:P

    Good App

  • Cool

    by Zetheruin

    This is a pretty cool app. I really like it. It's a must get app for those of you who likes to play games on new grounds and gamefudge and all the other games that requires flash player. I do have one suggestion. It's to make a game pad. When I play games using a pad, the keyboard gets in the way and it's kinda a annoying. Other than that, it's a must get.

  • Best App!

    by Mr.Gordj


  • Great way to get flash

    by PRNRPH

    Works as promised.

  • Not up to the mark

    by Kiran Enugala

    I purchased the app just today. The performance of the app is dead slow on my iphone 4s. Total waste of my money. Won't recommend this app to anyone especially for iphone users.

  • Does what I need--Thanks!

    by Wannano

    I deal a lot with a website that requires a flash player. How cool to be able to get work/play done on my phone!
