Flash On My Android Tablet?

Richard from Mt. Dora, Florida asks:

Is there a flash player for an android pad and phone that I could play all the games on pogo their website??  I know there’s a aap for pogo  but it only gives 4/5 games ones that I do not play.  Can you help me and others for this??

 Since Android no longer supports Flash, you won’t find it in the Google Play Store, but you can download and install Flash from archived version on the Adobe Website.

Open the settings menu on your tablet.


Select Security

Then put a check mark next to Unknown sources.  This will allow you to install apps from sources other than the Google Play Store. If you choose this option, you’ll need to make sure you only install content from legitimate sources.


Now open the browser on your tablet and search for Flash Player archive page.


When you get there scroll down and look for the version of Flash that works with the version of Android you’re using.  Or if you have something more recent than  Android 4.0 , choose Flash Player 11.1. Just tap the link to download. When downloading is complete, open notifications and tap “install flash player.apk”

I can’t promise this will work well. Flash is not supported by Android, so you may experience crashing and freezing. The games you are playing with Flash on a browser are not optimized for mobile devices the way Android apps are.  And your mobile browser may not permit you to run flash. Google Chrome won’t allow it, but Firefox mobile does permit it.


I can’t vouch for your gameplay experience, but if you want to give it a try, see how it works for you.
