Don’t buy for Facebook games! 1/5
I bought this browser to replace Puffin Browser to play my Facebook games on. I get a message when I’m in Facebook that this browser is not compatible with Facebook. None of my games load, they get a 3D flash error. Complete waste of money!!!!!
No Tinychat!? Whats the point? 4/5
Does what you expected to do. In most cases but doesn’t work with Tinychat At least in my initial experience....please work on this.... its basically the only reason I tried it...
Bought it for one thing, and it doesn’t work! 1/5
So I bought this to run my son’s flash based science program so I don’t have to send the little guy to my computer. This app promises you can open any flash program, video, game, whatever, but for this ONE application that I want, it DOES NOT WORK. I want my money back. 5 bucks down the drain. I am NOT happy, and I NEVER write reviews, much less a bad one. Make it right, guys.
Does not work for what I need... 1/5
does not load the website
Doesn’t work 1/5
This browser won’t show Flash content on several websites.
Should have a 0 option 1/5
Worthless. First page went blank. Crap app. Don’t waste your money.
The app you need! 5/5
Easily a must have app even if only using for flash compatible websites, and links.
good but flash is buggy 4/5
By Anony 747
when im in flash mode and i scroll, it has a two second delay and is choppy, and the bandwidth didnt help it, also, how do i go full screen on a flash game?
edit: its been a long time since i left this review, and the only other available flash player is puffin browser that is going to be shut down next month, i payed for this app to be a flash player and it does an awful job at it, and i expect you to do something about it now
This app could be good but it does not work correctly....I go to a sight to watch a video, it says to sign in first. Then I tap “sign in” and the page goes white and does nothing. I can’t watch the videos because it won’t go to the sign in page and let me sign in.....stupid!...btw, the site on safari opens the “sign in” page just fine, unfortunately I needed this app on my iPhone to watch the videos since they’re in Flash format...guess I just won’t be watching the videos after all....thanks!
Ain't the greatest, but it's the only one we've got 3/5
I downloaded Photon after my former main browser, Puffin, announced that it would no longer be usable on July 1, 2019. Photon does mostly fill the void. However, there is one major flaw that stops me from LIKING Photon; my iPhone's status bar is hidden. While I'm using Photon, I can't look at the clock, signal, or battery.
But I'll have to make do. The developers' website is a 404, they haven't posted on their Twitter in years, and the last update even here was 3 years ago.
With this in mind, I'm surprised the remote servers are still running at all. Everything but the browser itself points to the browser being an abandoned project.
So I don't have hopes for this issue to be fixed any time soon.
There's also another major annoyance in that I can't edit the URL of bookmarks. Only the titles. This makes some bookmarks that I regularly used impossible to bookmark.
Waste of $4!!! 1/5
This app does nothing for me. I need to view a web page on flash and scroll around the page to work and this opened the page , but couldn’t slide/scroll to right side of page. Useless for me.
Doesn’t work on sites that rely on flash to work. 1/5
Doesn’t work on sites that rely on flash to work. Websites keep saying this browser isn’t supported.
The browser just closes on you and doesn’t play any video that Safari didn’t.
REFUND MY MONEY 1/5
This clearly does not run any modern Flash sites. Forge of Empires does not even load.
No updates in 2 years. I want a refund and until you get it working I will use my desktop computer.
Didn’t work for connect math 2/5
I downloaded puffin for free and it worked. Messed with this app for a good minute before I gave up. Wish I wouldn’t have paid for this before downloading puffin. On my iPad it’s a small screen too....where puffin uses entire screen.
There’s a bug 4/5
I actually love this app, it’s my fave. But there’s a bug in it now and *every* site is “unavailable”. It can come up with the “App verse” search site but that’s it.
Stopped working 1/5
The app worked fine for quite a while but not too long ago it started saying every site was no longer available and that it had been decommisioned
Did not work for me 1/5
The website I needed to go to would not work with photon.
Terrible, Puffin is better 1/5
Super slow and awful interface. Waste of time and money.
Does not work 1/5
Does not work for what it’s meant to be used for. I bought it to go in one of those websites and it does not work in it super slow do not recommend it you buy it.
Don waste your money
Can’t Even Get Flash to work 1/5
By Theresa J
The only reason I bought this is to be able to play a flash Facebook game. I kept getting a message that flash will not work on my device. I’m using the latest iPad. Big waste of money. Also it wouldn’t size up for my iPad it looks iPhone size.
F off you thief’s 1/5
By Nica B Real
Money stealing app, no good and does not have legit customer service and no refunds
By Joe Otile
It’s a great browser for multitasking.
Terrible App 1/5
Is just painful to be charged $4.00 for this.
Please dont waste your money. Look for something else that actually works.
Not what I needed 1/5
I got this so I could play Facebook games on my phone (since Apple stopped giving support for Puffin). Except Facebook says it doesn’t support Photon. What the hell do I have to sell to get Flash on my iPhone
May I please get a refund, there’s nothing else I want to use Photon for
I am disappointed 1/5
I was looking for something that would automatically kick in while I was using any search engine on my iPad and this is not it. I must use this app as the actual portal and I didn’t like how the app’s screen did not fill iPad’s screen and it was difficult to maneuver through the website I needed the flash player for. Definitely not worth what I paid for & I’ll be cancelling my subscription.
Not comparable with IPad Pro 12.9 1/5
It’s not giving you the option to do a full screen and the flash disappears very fast after you close the app and the screen is not very clear at all once you turn the flash on. Please fix the issue especially when I purchased the paid version thinking that it’s going to be better the free one but it’s actually worse definitely not worth the money. I wish it would work as i need a browsers with flash to use a work website.
Didn’t expect... 5/5
for this app to truly do what it promotes. However, it does. I hope to be able to use a flash player for video calls other than iPhones FaceTime in the near future.
This app & my Ex have a lot in common 1/5
both are cheap. both dont work. and i regret spending money on both.
Thank you 5/5
Thank you for making this and please do not stop updates and development with this app.
Trash filled with ads 1/5
It keeps redirecting me to the apple store so as to download another app.
Update for iPhone X and Xs? 4/5
Would be great!
Are there never any updates on this? I’ve had this app for a long time and when I use it, it tells me update my browser.
Bought it to stream live video 1/5
I bought it thinking it had flash capability to stream on my site, does not allow me to stream whatsoever!!! Complete waste of my money and I’d like a refund
Waste of money 1/5
Doesn’t work at all on the sites I needed it for. I’ll be asking for a refund
Really slow 1/5
I tried this looking for a flash player, it awkwardly skips around the page if you try to move around the screen and pauses alot of what your watching
No good 1/5
This is a waste of money I can not view anything with this app. DO NOT BUY .. I want a refund
Stopped working. Flash player won’t play videos anymore. 1/5
By Must get thru
I purchased this three days ago and it worked fine playing videos on my iPad & iPhone that needed FLASH SUPPORT to play on them. This morning, now I go to my website to play videos through this app and now it tells me it needs a newer version to work???!!! Somebody tell me what app will play Flash on iPad & iPhones?
Not Great- works a little- sort of 2/5
I tried to pull the video to the 20 minute mark but could not.
So I was forced to watch it from the beginning.
Also when I minimize the window to use another app then come back to this, I’m kicked out of the site I was on and now I have to log in all over again and watch the video from the beginning because fast forward does not work.
I was going to give it 3 stars but now I’m downgrading to 2 because I don’t think I’ll ever open this again. But not 1 star because it does work ...a little
Photon Flash Player is Awesome! 5/5
This app consistently does an awesome job showing flash videos on my iPhone! I love it an recommend it VERY highly. Get it, try it & U will love it too, GUARANTEED! :)
It’s Great.. When The Servers Aren’t Constantly Busy 3/5
Been trying to connect to a browsing session for an hour with no luck, always says it’s busy. I know it’s the servers since it worked before and nothing has changed since then. It’s great otherwise, just useless when I can’t even use the setting it’s made for.
Very disappointed 1/5
I bought this app only to open an educational game for a homework, when I try to open it it says "The website is not available"
How do I get a refund????
Doesn’t Work For Me 1/5
It doesn’t work for me at all, I am completely frustrated with this app and I would like a complete and total refund. It is a COMPLETE WASTE of $3.99 AND of my time. I also am uninstalling the app so I better have a refund to my card😡
Flash Does Not Work 2/5
I could not get the flash component to work. This used to be a great app.
Horrible browser 1/5
just paid $4 for this junk. Interface predates and flash and general interface is very slow. Puffy the free browser is far superior compared to this. Not sure why people have rated it very high. Refund would be appreciated. This is the worst browser i tested and the only browser for which i paid to get with false impression based on other reviews.
Needs an update 3/5
Crashes a lot now. Needs an update
Still useful 5/5
New bug: Can’t delete history without app crashing. iOS 11 iPhone 6s
I’ve used it since 2012 or so. Good app.
