  • Ever since Android 4.1 Jelly Bean came to compatible devices, Adobe stopped developing Flash for mobile and out of the box support for the technology was gone. There are some workarounds to get it to work, including solutions like Flashify and Flashfox.

    You could still play Flash-based websites until Android 4.3, since the AOSP Android browser was preloaded on every smartphone and had flash support. Mobile Chrome also cut support for Adobe’s Flash, but still third party browsers were an option. Android 4.4.4 KitKat brought Chromium for WebView, so all the third party browsers also lost Flash. Android 5.0 Lollipop doesn’t bring any extra love for Flash, but yet again there are workarounds.

    Flashfox can be downloaded from here for free and there’s also a Pro version with $2.99 price tag and lacking the ads of the free one. Flashify is the other solution and it’s available for free here. Flashify is used as an extension that adds a shortcut, so you can quickly open a page with Flash in a different browser, in this case Flashfox. Once you tap into “Sharing” and then “Flashify, you’ll be all set.
