          Beacuse Steve Jobs (May he rest in peace) made the decision in 2006, that iOS would NEVER be compatible with Flash. The reasoning was that playing Flash content is processor consumptive and kills batteries as well as shortening battery life in mobile devices, like iPhones, and iPads.

          Ther won't ever be a Flash Player developed for iPads or iPhones, because it'll never be compatible and it would be a waste of time, money and effort to make one.

          Apple recommends SkyFire browser, available in the App Store, for viewing Flash content.
