This isn't BIM related, but falls under the 'Don't tell me I can't do that' category.
One of the joys of being an Autodesk reseller is having to take 12 online classes and tests. Not being one to want to sit at my computer and wanting some portability, I wanted to watch the training videos on my iPad.
Of course, the training website requires Flash. Of course, the iPad doesn't support Flash. I found the start of the solution by accident. I like doing the Jumble puzzle in the newspaper. I can do them pretty quickly and maybe that explains some of my thought on BIM. Anyway, while travelling a few weeks ago, I wanted to do the daily Jumble online.
Of course, going to http://www.uclickgames.com/jumble/online/daily/tmjmf, the Daily Jumble site, only works with Flash accessible browsers. But, after a little searching, there is an iPad app called iSwifter. Guess what? It allows you to watch flash sites.
Try for free for 30 minutes and if you like what you see, buy the app using in-app purchase for a *ONE TIME* purchase price of $4.99
iSwifter is the world's first cloud-based Flash browser for Social Games and MMOs! In addition, you can still instantly browse any of your favorite shows, music videos, movies across the web using iSwifter! Why use browsers that only allow you to watch videos!
Note: iSwifter currently requires a Wi-Fi connection.
2. In address bar, type in about:config
3. In config search menu, type in 'message' and you get to "privacy.popups.showBrowserMessage" showing the status as false
4. double tap/click on 'false' to change it to 'true'
5. hit the back button and you're back at your original website.
6. tap on the link that gave you a pop ups are being blocked error
8. at top of the window there's now a yellow bar and you click on preferences
9. click on 'allow pop-ups for www...'
10. yeah...now you can use the iPad, Flash and pop up embedded web pages.
One last little pain....it's not permanent, so save about:config as a favorite website and launch it first. You only need to do this for web page links that launch pop ups.
