A week ago I bought an iPad 2, but because of the lack of Flash, I returned it yesterday. I did lots of reading about the comparison with the [Samsung] Galaxy, but the one thing I completely forgot was playing games on Facebook! I wanted something portable that my daughter and I could read our books on but also needed something to play FB games on (like MonsterWorld, Puzzle Saga, etc.). Please say there is hope for me. I really want to keep the Galaxy to keep on top of the latest and greatest … but I will return it in exchange for a laptop if this frustration with the FB games can't be resolved Laurie Crovo.
I've touched on this subject before in a previous column where I wrote that the Samsung Galaxy Tab was not an ideal way to play Facebook games, even though it can run Flash animation.
The fact is, Flash for mobile devices does not work well, and it's not going to get better. Adobe, which makes Flash, announced in November that it is ceasing further development of Flash for mobile devices.
