Access Flash-based content on your iPad with Rover

A colleague of mine recently told me about the Rover Internet browser for iPad. This free app allows users to access Flash-based Internet content and was created with the education community in mind. After you’ve downloaded the app, open it and begin browsing for content on the Internet. Through streaming technology, Rover runs the Adobe software on its own servers and then sends the video images at high speeds back to your iPad.

CloudBrowse and Skyfire are also apps for the iPad that offer similar features, but they do cost $2.99 each.

    Out of curiosity, what’s the performance like since it has to stream? What about battery life?
