          No...

          There is no more Flash Player for Android and there won't be another. Android is no longer compatible with Flash Player. Playing Flash content is very processor consumptive and it drains your battery, also shortening the life of it. Android (Google) recommends using either "Dolphin" or "Puffin" as your browser if you need to view Flash content with a mobile device running Android. They're both free in the GooglePlay store. These browsers use "server side" rendering to reduce the load on your device.

              1, You don't "buy" Puffin. It's free.

              2, Dolphin and Puffin (according to Google) use "server side rendering" which means they play the Flash content on Google's servers and feed it back to your tablet instantaneously.

                Mike the free version of puffin does not support the flash player because I loaded that first and tried to load settlers but it asked me to buy the full version also I loaded dolphin no good for settlers ether

                  Odd... Google must have just started charging for "the good stuff". (Greedy #?*!'s)

                  Everything I've read on Dolphin and Puffin indicated that they work for whatever Flash content you view.

                  I don't own a tablet or Android phone, so I can't confirm that, though.
