The Puffin browser for iPad seems to be running Flash applications pretty well.

Here are some shots with it running AVChat:

Login screen shows up and the flash background, I can also type a username that is remembered.

Good job so far!

AVChat on iPad

Sending messages works as well.

The rooms list:

Quick conclusions:

  • text chat works fine with slight delay
  • you can not start your webcam or mic even tough it detects that you have a microphone
  • you can join several rooms and switch between them
  • notification sounds do play (new message, private cam request, buzz, etc.)
  • you can view someone’s cam but it will show a frozen frame not a video (even tough the download graph shows you downloading a lot of data)
  • links can be clicked
  • YouTube videos can be played inside AVChat but thei’re really sluggish

The Puffin Web Browser costs 2,39Euros but there’s also a free version (Puffin Web Browser Free) which will run Flash for 14 days.
