For iPad owners who are looking to play flash games on the latest Apple fad, a new app has been made to make it possible. The iSwifter is a new app that will allow iPad users the ability to run flash games through a remote streaming connection.

iSwifter s available in the App Store with playable games from Facebook, AOL, Yahoo and Kongregrate. Tr app works by essentially going past the lack of flash support in the iPad, much like Onlive and Gaikai. The way this is works is that the games are played on remote machines and then streamed as Apple permitted video content for the iPad. But this app isn’t without its faults. Current users are reporting extreme lag from the app, but the developers are promising a fix for this problem.

The creators of iSwifter are also hoping to expand tis app to other devices, such as Android phones and the Windows 7 phone, along with other iOS devices. The creator of the app has said this about his creation,

“We are targeting the much larger user base of casual and social gamers who want to consume gaming content on-the-go…As more mobile devices hit the market there is no reason why game developers should be locked out of the hottest handsets.”
