    I know this was talked about a few years ago but I was wondering if anyone found any new app or browser that allows you to play the game on a smart phone.

    I tried a few browsers that say they use flash but I can't even get to the login screen for farmerama on them(says webpage is unavailable ).

    Thanks for any help

    Android or iPhone?

    Android has flash emulators... go to the app store and search for flash. I can't think of the names right now. If you post the names I can tell you which ones ppl have reported they prefer. Using them for free is a bit annoying and I can't afford to pay for them. I just found out my new hearing aids are going to to cost $1700 out of my pocket. And they aren't top of the line. Barely going to cover my needs.

    You download the app and then access the farm from there.

    There are Many Browsers no longer Support Flash, as you need Flash Based Browsers some of them Do not Work. I have Been using my Smart Phone to Play this Game for a few years. The One I use is Puffin Browser and it works Well Can be used on Smart phone or Tablet ok ;)

    Hi Warborg My Smart Phone Uses Android. There is Trail Version of Puffin and Paid Version of Puffin. For Those who use Ipad or iphone that Paid App of Puffin is The only one works on ipad or iphone. Dont ask me why Apple IOS does not support Flash. Also Google does not support Flash. The only ones that does work and reliable is Puffin Browser. I would stick with Puffin if i was you ok

    just got a new phone running Android Lollipop and downloaded the latest version on puffin from the play store and it's running a treat, with the "mouse" mode it even shows tooltips.
    no mention about puffin being a trial version, although it does say some addons cost and the pro version costs

    This FAQ in French Forum deals with playing Farmerama in Android & Smart Phones.

    http://fr.bigpoint.com/farmerama/board/index.php?threads/faq-tablettes-smartphones-comment-jouer-à-farmerama.11396/#post-75668

    I do not know whether there is a corresponding FAQ in English. I accidentally stumbled upon the French FAQ.

    I do not know whether this has been earlier stated by someone else, if so sorry for the repetition.

    Translation of the French FAQ

    Photon Flash Player and Puffin Web Browser Both products are available for both platforms and they work perfectly with Farmerama whether on an iPad or on an Android tablet. Pricewise Photon Flash Player currently costs € 4.49 (discounted) for iPad and is free on Android. In terms of Puffin Web Browser, it costs € 3.59 to € 2.91 for iPad and Android. By clicking on the images below, you will access the page of the App-Store and Google play for these two products in order to have more details on their operation.

    Photon Flash Player


    [​IMG]
    The parrot and elephant are not displayed and nothing moves.

    To activate Flash Player you must click on the lightning on the top right of the screen. A Once done, the page will reload and you get this:


    [​IMG]


    The three buttons that appear at the top right, once the Flash On, define the mode of use of gesture (how is interpreted what you do with your fingers):
    • The finger button: = slip finger to scroll the page, type = click (conventional operation of the touch screen).
    • The arrow button: swipe of the finger = drag the pointer where you want to click, type = click (more precise but less intuitive).
    • Fist button: swipe of the finger = select items on the screen, type = click (only to be used to make selections).

    You can find more information (in English) on the publisher's website:

    Note: the screenshots were done on an iPad but it is the same for Android devices.

    I have been using Puffin Browser for about 3 years now, do not have a problem using it on my Smart Phone (Android), Also got in on my Android Tablet no issues with Either Device

    That Interesting French FAQ...12ss12.......Something to add when using Puffin Browser with Farmerama on Smart Phone or Tablet....if you look closer at Bottom Right Hand Corner you have a Keyboard option and Touch Pad/Joyce Stick Option as I always used Keyboard for IGM or selling things in the Markets Playing the Game Wireless....;)

    Good finding 12ss12 from the French forum!

    Has anyone tried Photon Flash Player?

    I also use puffin on my phone when I can't log in from my laptop.

    Puffin has announced that their browser will be disabled at the end of June. Has anyone found an alternative that is successful on iPad or iPhone?

    have anyone tried Puffin Pro ?

    If Puffin is disabling adobe flash player, I guess Puffin Pro is too.

    I know some people have bought Photon and it works very slowly.
    In might not be the best but it seems to be the only option so far

    @Cassie101 Try modifying the settings. Maybe using a low quality or something similar will make the browser run smoother
