Photon EDU Flash Browser for iPad

What is Photon EDU?


Photon EDU is the latest Educational browser with Adobe Flash support on the iPad.

Based on the Photon Flash Browser (#1 on the US App Store), Flash-based educational videos, games and textbooks are now possible on the iPad.

Complete with features such as Web Filtering and Device Management, use the Internet as a learning tool in the classroom with complete confidence.

How does it Work?


Using our advanced Cloud Streaming technology, Photon EDU runs your Flash website in our high speed servers, before sending it back to your iPad in real time.

In addition, our built-in Web Filters will prevent your students from accessing unwanted or even undesirable sites, by filtering sites at the URL/Domain level. Access the Whitelist / Blacklist to allow or block access to additional websites.
