In spite of the whole Steve Jobs-Adobe conflict on the Flash matter, people would still like Flash to work on their iPads, that sold over 2 million units by the way. Developers would also be happy to witness this improvement and there has been a recent update on such a fortunate port. Apparently Smokescreen is a browser plugin that pulls apart SWF binaries and reassembles into an Apple-friendly format.
Now, the folks of Artefact Group have followed this innovation with a piece of coding of their own, working on a service called Flash In a Pinch. At the moment, this service is a proof-of-concept and we learn that Flash is rendered on Artefact’s servers, streaming the images to the iPad user’s Safari browser.
