Frash – Adobe Flash on the iPad
Comex, creator of Spirit and Bannerbomb is working on bringing Flash to the iPad and iPhone. We saw a demo of Flash running on an iPhone a while back, and now a new video has been posted showing a more stable version running on the iPad, where users could really take advantage fo this.
Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by comex ( http://twitter.com/comex ). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.
A release is planned for when Frash is stable. Developers are welcome to join the effort athttp://github.com/comex/frash – fork it and send a pull request with your patches.

Flash on the iPad is much needed! All the websites my 6 year old daughter visits, are completely bult in Flash. If she could play those games on the iPad, I’d have my computer back, Saturday mornings! :p
Here’s the older video, we saw a while ago, with Flash running on the iPhone:
