    I hate being shoveled over to an app. Bothers me.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. If I WANT to use an app.. I go to the app store.

    Agreed – I know I could see more using my iPad and honestly don’t care if Apple adds flash or not. I expect sites to accommodate me if they want me.

    Uh huh. Pretty much sums that up.

    I have had my ipad for over a year now and it’s the only thing I use. So if I cant use a site I move on. I wonder how many of me there are now?

    I don’t know about this. I have been using flash on sites for years and think that if someone wants to see my site.. they should get the tools.

    Being an online retailer I can relate to this. We actually took out all flash based tools that might prevent or delay a sale. We do want an app but we want it to be users choice.

    I only have an iTouch so far. I actually prefer to surf using Safari than use aps to view stores etc. Apps are fun for games and actual workhorse apps, but I don’t want one to surf a scaled down site. One of the reasons I got this was so I could surf on over to any site.. anytime.

    Hi! I have an IPAD and I am frustrated at the amount of sites that use flash. I don’t want an app either, I want to surf the site. I encourage all new site makers to bypass that if they can. I am not going to buy a new device.. I love the IPAD so .. the only way I’ll buy anything on those sites is by surfing them. I am able to use Facebook with it. Sure they have an app but you can just surf it and its great. The screen is big,.. why reduce myself to an app?

    Sigh, I am so sick of having to use apps when I paid for a large screen in order to just surf. I love my Ipad so.. I just use sites that work now and forget the rest.

    Agreed. This is not a tiny screen, show me the website.

    Yessiree! I’m not getting pushed around. I spend good cash out there and anyone that wants it.. should consider making their site workable.

    Remember when all sites had to accommodate old monitors … and they did. Well now they have to accommodate this.. and apps wont do. We bought bigger screens so we could surf no be treated like kids with ipods.

    I remember clients insisting their sit be visible to those old 640 x 480 screens, it’s always going to be up to the merchant to be seen by all or forfeit the sales.

    I don’t really care about flash being on my ipad and itouch. Sites that don’t change will just be replace in my favorites by other sites. There is never just ONE place selling what I need. :)

    I have no need for flash, I’ve only ever missed out on a couple YouTube videos.. big deal.

    I love apps that are made with me in mind, but I can’t stand apps that are clearly made to cover for lack of regular site functionality. I bought an Ipad for the big screen, I want to surf most of the time.

    I bought the Ipad not even knowing it didn’t have flash but I can dig it. Why should major companies add plugins.. most of the web works fine without that and there are ways to do things now on sites using PHP. So skip the flash..

    I love my Ipad.. I could care less if I ever see flash again.

    I don’t usually read much on the net but I really do love your work. I do not always agree with your views, but I just love the way you work out an entire piece. End to end great work. And I did agree 100 percent with this one~! I find most apps to be lacking and really do think my screen is big enough to surf sites.. so I don’t WANT to use an app.
