Useless on the iPad 1/5
By Walid cnbc
This is a useless browser on the iPad at least, very slow, and the touch of the scroll is horrible, and it does not support a lot of the functions in a basic browser, I used puffin before because of the flash player and it was very good, but since the free version is gone and I read reviews that this one is ok, so I bought it......but it is horrible..
Do not waste your $4.99..
Great app 5/5
Works great at viewing stuff cause its easy to erase stuff you don't want others to see and good audio by starting flash playback!!
Stopped working. 1/5
Stopped working as of Sept 16th.
Also, putting the button that enables flash next to the keyboard button is very bad a design.
Does not work for forge of empires 1/5
I bought this app to play Forge of Empires... it does not work. Tech support say they are investigating a solution.
I will update this review once it is working.
Doesn’t Work with Canvas 2/5
I got this browser for my iPad Pro to see if it would load the web version of Canvas better. In flash mode, the image gets pixelated and parts of the page won’t load. In regular mode, it works, but no better than Safari.
Works as advertised 5/5
A nice browser that allows me to access the flash content that I need. I’ve tried the other iOS flash browsers and this one would be my top reccomendation.
Doesn’t work with online games 1/5
App says it works with online games, it even advertises it works with forge of empires...it does not.
Doesnt work 1/5
Flash mode blocks the website Im trying to access
Didn’t work for my need 1/5
I had to get this web browser for one reason, to run a program on flash, since my iPad is my computer, and it failed. 5 dollars for nothing. Great.
Its Ok 4/5
By Pit Mom 271
It’s ok for a look see where I wish to look. However there is no sound. Love watching the beach at Del Mar, CA but cannot hear it. Used to be able to hear it. But for the issues of not loading quickly and the flash player it’s fine for my iPad Air.
Thank you for allowing us to peek in. And also glad the camera is beck up at this each. It was down for awhile.
i love it 4/5
By Kel Tay Woo
listen it might be a little bit slow but it allows me to play club penguin on my ipad so i’m not complaining
Great while it worked 1/5
First time I used it, it was great. Today it won’t connect to server.
Waste of money so far. 1/5
Absolutely useless. No combination of settings enables this browser to work on my device and now I’m out $5 for making the mistake to download this instead of puffin. Thanks for nothing.
Developer should have a trial version! 1/5
I bought this because puffin was being discontinued and reviews were saying this exceeded puffin. Well I am not finding that at all, I find majority of time flash is loading & loading....if it actually does load if it’s a game forget even trying to play. Went through all flash settings nothing helped. Using iPad 6th gen. & 275mbps line with router 2ft away (100% WiFi signal) from device. Unfortunately Apple says this doesn’t qualify for refund...!
Doesn’t work with Forge of Empires 1/5
By Illinois Customer
The only reason I got it is to play Forge of Empires, but it doesn’t work at all.
Don’t let the misleading pictures tell you otherwise. In 3 months, still no progress and no fix in sight based on developer’s feedback.
Want money back 1/5
This app shows being able to play Forge of Empires but when you try it says it’s blocked!! I only got this app to plat that game. I want my money back!
Don’t spend your money 1/5
Not worth the $ 1/5
I regret paying for this app. The go-back feature quite often opens a page that is open on a different tab instead of opening the previous page.
Too many bugs and updates are rarely released.
Doesn’t Work for IOS Flash Player Items 1/5
This was recommended to me to replace the now obsolete Puffin browser. Wish I could get my money back. I need it to work for my children’s schooling, which is doesn’t. Does not fill the gap between IOS flash player and browser as suggested. Don’t waste your money like I did. Off to search for something else. Sigh.
CANNOT play forge of empires on this app browser 1/5
WARNING DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP!! This app browser LIES & uses FALSE ADVERTISING. I purchased to be able to play forge of empires GVG (guild vs guild), which cannot be played on game app & needs pc internet with flash player. So I just wasted money & time because I used lighting bolt & changed setting multiple times & every time I get error message that forge of empires site is blocked & access denied. Very angry that photon advertises pics of playing forge of empires with their browser, but it is lies because I cannot.
Want a refund 1/5
I got Photon browser so I could get my college online assignments done on my iPad instead of having to use my old slow computer. My Sites I need still won’t run flash for me to get my work done! Very upset and disappointed.
Can I get a refund 1/5
I was trying to use this for school Cengage app but it didn’t work at all
WORKS GREAT 5/5
By Mac atttack
Just needs a more reactive cursor
Doesn’t work for what I need. 1/5
By Momma Arcona
Needed this for flash video linked through my school, but every time I enable the flash button and go to the link the website blocks me and says it is not available. From a desktop it opens just fine, so I think it is this program. Would like my money back.
Piece of crap for pogo 1/5
I downloaded this because it was recommended for playing pogo. Pogo will not run n this. Other stuff slow to lad.
Yes and no 3/5
Used this browser successfully with my older iPad, however it does not seem to work on my newer iPad Mini. This saddens me greatly.
I just installed this and it does nothing! Guess they’re desperate for $5. Got it to replace puffin browser for playing Facebook game desktop version with flash. Apparently it’s the same as puffin and no longer being updated for iPhones & iPad. They should have known before they took my $5. :( Rip off for sure!
This app Is lousy. 1/5
Do not buy this app. The flash player doesn’t work as it should play. Not Really easy to use. I asked for a refund but Apple refuses to give it to me. Do not buy this app.

Video is not working............
Doesn’t work for my purpose 1/5
Photon was recommended to me to watch the Big Brother live feeds. I have signed in to CBS All Access, then went to live feeds, then hit the lightening bolt in the top right corner. The chat comes up and the disclaimer too. But when the disclaimer goes away, all I get is a spinning circle. The feeds do not come up. This happens on both my older iPad and a brand new model. I am so disappointed. I used Puffer but it is going away tomorrow. I had high hopes of Photon working for this action, but it doesn’t. I paid for this app years ago and have never been able to use it for my liking. Maybe I am doing something wrong. If you can tell me how to remedy this, I will certainly be happy to give you a 5 star rating. Thank you.
Has met my needs 5/5
Has met my needs for about five years now - needed some kind of player to pick up the slack where Apple has let us down - this has worked well on a different number of iPads I have had over the years
Flash isn’t working 3/5
Started yesterday. I tried all the ports with no luck. I hope this will be fixed as I paid for this browser and use it daily. I have to have flash. Please fix.
Google is the default and only search option now? 1/5
There is now no option to choose another search engine nor is there any possible way to contact the company to inquire about another option? Wow - and not in a good way.
wasted money 1/5
By ali nicki gandi
a waste in money do not buy it i tried playing a facebook game on it and it didnt work and i do i have flash drive for my ipad
Very Disappointed 1/5
By N.O Saints Fan
Does not work for the browsing I need it for which puffin works really great but I’m forced to get a new browsing app for work to keep using my ipad. Being that puffin won’t be around much longer it will be hard to find an app that works as good as there’s does.
Diggy, iPhone, iPad users NO IT WONT WORK 1/5
Nope it doesn’t work with the game! It opens the flash version, but it won’t full screen, it won’t scroll in the game to allow you to play.
Not working. Every search no matter what it is comes back sorry this site is no longer available
Crashes frequently. Only bookmarked and address bar-listed sites work in Search for the last two weeks. Will be looking for another browser.
Site unavailable 1/5
I tried to use the site which directed to a support page. The message states the site is no longer available.
Works great 5/5
I was skeptical about purchasing this app. I bought a new iPad. This worked on my old curriculum that needed flash media player. Thank you!!!
Does not work with cengage on iPad 1/5
I purchased this app in order to access online course materials through cengage. I keep receiving a message that says “this website is blocked”. Waste of money, do not bother purchasing for access to online course materials.
Very happy 4/5
Very happy with this app keep up the good work and dont stop updating....better then any browser made for iPad or iPhone
Great app 5/5
By Derek Dd
Never had a problem with this app. Always plays great quality.
Flash player 5/5
I was having trouble viewing an online course I am enrolled in on my iPad and I remembered using photon browser when it first came out. After downloading and updating the version I had I have had no issues with viewing my course. This app has been a life saver for me.
Doesn’t play video —avoid 1/5
No updates for over a year and now Photon has stopped working and will not play video.
Suggest one doesn’t download until this gets fixed.
Didn’t work for main reason purchased 1/5
I do video chatting through an online website that requires flash for work which is why I bought this app, however it says the website is blocked. (No it’s not an “inappropriate” site) so I’m kinda annoyed. If you’re buying it for a specific purpose you might lose your $5 so just be prepared to be disappointed
Fast browser 5/5
Excellent browser for flash videos.
Photon Was Great For Awhile 3/5
When I first discovered Photon a few years ago, it was a GREAT app for playing games on the iPad. However, the last couple of weeks it has been lagging in performance. Not being able to play some of your favorite games and share with others has been disappointing. It was great while it lasted, but now I’m trying to find another app to take its place😩😩😩😩😩😩
By Coops Mom18
Paid for this browser after reading how it supports flash and was excited to be able to play Facebook games on my iPad finally! Unfortunately I am still not able to with this browser and sorry I wasted my money
