Getting Flash On the iPad With a Different Approach
A couple weeks ago Paul wrote an article discussing Smokescreen, a plugin that brought Flash to the iPhone. The Smokescreen app reads in SWF binaries, unzips them (in native JS), extracts images and embedded audio and turns them in to base64 encoded data:uris, then stitches the vector graphics back together as animated SVG.
Flash In a Pinch, brought to you by Artefact, takes a different approach at brewing up flash for your iPad.
Before you get too excited however, just like the last paragraph says, its not going to be very fast. The delivery method, combined with the CPU power and bandwidth requires quite a bit of juice, and until the h.264 version comes out, this is still very "proof of concept". Just watch the video and you'll see.
