40 Flash sites for Android 2.2 phones

These 40 mobile Flash sites will keep your Android 2.2 devices busy playing games, watching videos, and maybe even learning.

Welcome Droid X owners to the mobile world of Adobe Flash on a smartphone - the world Steve Jobs doesn't want you to see. This week Motorola Droid X joins a small but growing club of devices running Android 2.2 (aka Froyo). The biggest improvement delivered by Android 2.2 is support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for smartphones.

Before Android 2.2, surfing Flash-enhanced sites on a mobile phone was a limited experience only available to a couple of Nokia phones. But now, with Froyo running on around 30 percent of all Android phones, by Google's own estimates that is, we are just starting to get the taste of Flash on smartphones.

For many the addition of Flash is a big deal, but the next question is what's there to do now? Sadly, because Flash for Android smartphones is so new there are few Flash sites optimised for the platform that take into considerations small screens and offer tools and diversions catering to mobile phone users.

Here I've rounded up a list of 10 Flash enabled mobile sites that range from games, animation, to entertainment destinations tailored to smartphones. I've also included a longer list of 30 sites Adobe says were optimized for Flash mobile, but are not designed for the small screens.

Eat your heart out Steve Jobs.

Tip: Come back on this page from your mobile phone and click straight on the site's name to take you to the mobile version. Also, if you are on a non-mobile optimized site with Flash, just double-tap on the Flash content to see it in full screen.

Fun Free Game

Check out dozens of free Flash games optimized for your Android 2.2 phone.

Kongregate

Hundreds of simple yet fun games, designed to work with touch-based displays on mobile phones. Kongregate has a huge selection for you to choose from, and there's a new interesting game featured every week at the top of the site.

Mochigames

The mobile site Mochigames doesn't have as many games as Kongregate but has a sleeker interface and lets you select your games by category (action, puzzle, strategy), alongside a selection of five featured games. Note that you will have to watch a short ad before you start playing some games.

Miniclip

At Miniclip the site also has a limited yet varied selection of fun Flash games for your Android 2.2 phone. The games have nice sound effects and pleasant graphics, and load quite fast over Wi-FI.

Armor Games

Game junkies will love Armor Games that offers 20 fresh takes on classic and new games. To enjoy in full screen glory, just double-tap on the game.

South Park Avatar Generator

As seen in most of Adobe's teaser videos for Flash on Android phones, you can finally try out the South Park Avatar Generator, customize it, and use it for your various Internet accounts.

Entertainment, Videos & Movie Trailers

Sit back and relax watching some quality clips and videos on your phone.

EpixHD

Although you can't watch full-feature-length movies on your phone at Epix, the company put together a Flash-optimized mobile site with several extras, trailers, and interview clips for your Flash-enabled Android phone.

Homestar Runner

You can now watch these funny Internet meme animated cartoons on your phone, with the Homestar Runner Flash site that perfectly fits your screen (in landscape). Alongside the animated clips, you can also play games featuring the same characters, and find some sweet clips of each character introducing themselves.

Nickelodeon

Go back to your childhood with plenty of video clips from the Nickelodeon network, as well as games and episodes from some of the most popular shows on the channel (U.S.-only).

Warner Bros

Warner Bros has put together an Adobe Flash-designed mobile Website featuring all the latest movie trailers, as well as a host of information about its current TV shows, DVD and Blu-Ray releases and on-demand offers.

EcodaZoo

Finally, a site optimized for smartphones with Flash is the Japanese Eco Zoo. It's an educational site for children to learn about animals in a zoo, but the animations and ingenuity put into the site are set to entertain adults as well.

Sites Optimized for Mobile Flash

Here is list of sites not optimized for small screen sizes, but that do support Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 for Android 2.2. These sites will work on phones, but you will have to pan and zoom like with any other regular site. The biggest drawback with these sites (besides being optimized for a tablet or full-sized computer screen) is that if Flash content isn't scaled to fit small phones and video and animation could drain your phone's battery fast.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
