    After doing some research on both apps ( Photon Flash and Cloud Browse ) I realized there are app developers out there to make you believe your iOS device CAN and WILL run Java and Flash.
    This is not the case. I believe both of those apps are like Splashtop which is a Remote Desktop app and works in allowing you to ‘see’ yours (or someone else’s) computer so it LOOKS like your device is running Flash and Java.

    Apple did not install Java nor Flash on their devices. App developers do not have an app that runs Java or Flash because the device has to have it loaded into the hardware.

    I will stick with using my Splashtop Remote over others since the reviews are excellent. I would rather be connected to my OWN computer than that of some ‘remote server’ computer.

    Tablets running the Android operating system can run Flash games, listed with an F here:

    iOS devices can run the Pogo Games app, which has its own standalone versions of a few of Pogo’s games and iPhone weekly challenge badges.

    Right now there’s no way to run *all* Pogo games on a mobile device/tablet as you would sitting at your computer without using a remote desktop program, like Splashtop:

    I can play the “f” games that don’t have chat at Pogo.com on my Kindle Fire. I tried playing Zuma, but couldn’t figure out how to aim and fire w/o a mouse.

    No, not the games on FB.

    Any of the flash games that do not have chat….the original embedded games.

    I’ve just returned from a five-day trip on which I had taken only my iPad2. I knew there was no way I’d survive without my daily Pogo-fix, so I downloaded “Photon Flash Web Browser” (unfortunately, back to full price $3.99 now). That works with most Flash games, but it won’t touch the Java games. Then I downloaded “Cloud Browse,” which really does run the Java Pogo games!!! “Cloud Browse” costs $2.99, which gave me a 24-hour trial period. After that, sessions are limited to 10 minutes each unless you sign up for a full membership. “Cloud Browse” was a lifesaver on the trip. At home, I’ll be content with the 10-minute sessions, if I’m unable to get to my laptop.

    Excellent info Pogette!
    I’m going to check it out cause I was away from home in January and played the Pogo games on my home computer using the Splashtop Remote. I would love to play the games without having to use the Splashtop if possible.

    I am on my kindle fire and cannot play any embedded games. I tap PLAY but it doesn’t go/do anything. I must be missing something. :(

    Pogette does that also work on the iphone?

    When I turned on my ipod touch after reading the question, “Cloud Browse” was available for installation, but the “Photon Flash Web Browser” folk wanted another $3.99.

    “Cloud Browse” is “hung” right now on both the iPad 2 and the ipod touch. [Warning screen about no encryption won't go away and I can't get the keyboard to work to enter my pogo-login info.]

    Last week’s success may have been a “lure ‘em in” maneuver. So, if you spend your money, be prepared for it not to work sometimes. Still, if you’re on the road without a real computer, I think it is worth the risk.

    If someone puts “Photon….” on an iphone or ipad, please post your results.

    Pogette, you CAN play Pogo away from home with Splashtop. I am living proof that Splashtop DOES work away from home.
    I was 800 miles away from my home computer yet I was able to connect to it while visiting a friend that had wi-fi.

    For anyone who’s interested in knowing this, here’s how I got it to work:

    Make sure you have the Splashtop streamer TURNED ON on your home computer. Leave your computer running because it will not work if your computer is turned completely off. Even though my computer was left on, I had it ‘logged off’
    When I got to my destination my iPad was connected to the local wi-fi. This can be from anyplace. A persons house, a cafe or anywhere there is wi-fi service available. The connection also worked with the 3G service because I tested it.
    When I turned on the Splashtop app on my iPad it found MY HOME COMPUTER. I stress that because you get to use your computer to play Pogo games rather than a ‘remote server’ computer that belongs to an unknown person.
    I was able to log in and do whatever I wanted to do on my home computer via the Splashtop app.

    I hope this helps anyone who is interested in using their iPad or iPhone/iPod away from home to play the Pogo games. I highly recommend it!

    You are absolutely right, bonbon! ;-)

    I couldn’t use Splashtop because I didn’t have my computer with me and was desperate for a “Pogo-fix.” It was money well spent at the time, but in retrospect……

    Thanks for the instructions, Bonbon. I always turn off my home computer/router/printer when I’m out of town because lightning through the phone line once fried everything a few years ago. May have to rethink that.

    You’re welcome Pogette :-)
    I understand there could be a risk leaving your home computer on while out of town in case of thunderstorms.
    So sorry you had your electronics fried. :-(
