If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Buggy

    By maxxsplace
    Although puffin is the best browser i have seen for flash games on the ipad it is definitely buggy this past month or so. There must have been an update and since the i have had all sorts of problems with it. First of all some new pop up when you try to play yoworld on facebook, it says true, under that leave and under that stay on this page. It's incredibly annoying to have to click on that every single time i try to do anything on the game. Worse yet it started freezing constantly whch means constantly refreshing and having to click on that pop up again and again. I keep getting nothing but a white screen, the log off button won't fully open without refreshing several times. I've deleted the browser and reloaded it a few times to no avail. Up to 4-6 weeks ago I'd have given it 5 stars but not until they fix this bug. I don't play any other facebook games so don't know if there are problems with other games. These issues seem to be unique to facebook. However like i said so far i haven't been able to find another browser that really works for flash games on the ipad.
  • The Flash feature is BUGGY

    By Spent Parch
    Every time I use the adobe flash feature on Puffin Browser, I always know that it's going to either crash or freeze when I first start using it. When I reload the page it's fine it starts working properly but literally EVERYTIME I use it, it's going to seem fine, but about 10 minutes in and it will crash and I'll have to reload the page for it to start working properly without crashing. Normally this wouldn't be problem, but when I'm playing a online MMO flash game and it crashes before I save my progress, it really makes me rage at my phone. Normally I'd just forget this app and download another app with the adobe flash feature on it, but there isn't one to my knowledge. So I'm stuck with browser, where when I do something that involves adobe flash and cause it to lag and then freeze up. It's a real pain to deal with because I use this app to play flash games on a cool website, but I always expect it to crash, because it does. Oh btw It's a good browser when your not using the adobe flash feature on it, but I'd recommend Google Chrome if you want a really fast browser.
  • It’s great!

    By Kat🐱🐯Kat
    I love it, it’s a great app. I got it to play games on my phone that are only accessible through the computer, since I didn’t have one and really wanted to play those games. However, there is one problem that infuriates me to no end. This has only happened to me three times since I got the app (it’s been about 2 years) but very time it happens I get so mad. What happens is the app freezes, and then makes me return to the home page of my phone. When I open up the app again, the screen stays frozen until I close out of the app completely (swiping it up). This fixes the freezing problem, sure, but it also closes ALL of the tabs I have open. I don’t know if this has happened to anyone else, or if it’s just me, but I just wanted to let ya’ll know about this glitch. Over all, however, I do love this browser, and I will continue using it despite the small bugs.
  • Pretty helpful except for one problem

    By Michaela Franchi
    I have been using puffin for around one to two years. Don’t get me wrong, puffin is a great browser for games that require flash, and is incredibly fast for gaming and so on. My only concern is that every month or so I get a notification on my screen saying that I need flash and it gives me a fee requiring me to pay $3.50 or so per month to enable flash. Because of this problem I’ve had to uninstall puffin multiple times. I assure you to download this app as it is a useful app, but if it asks you to spend any amount of money for flash or any other sort of error, just uninstall the app and reinstall it again. I hope this helped you and I recommend this app to all users 😄
  • Great app but doesn’t play Flash audio.

    By Bonnie Parris
    This is a pretty good app as far as I know. I only use it to read Homestuck because my computer is broken, and I needed something to be able to run Flash content. This app was the perfect choice. Not only is it able to run Flash content, but there’s also a game pad and other stuff to make the Flash content fully functional. The only down-side I have is it doesn’t play Flash audio. I’ve experienced this while reading Homestuck the past few days. There are some panels where audio is SUPPOSED to play, but the browser doesn’t play any sound, which makes the experience much less enjoyable. Fix this and I’ll give the app a five star rating. Kudos!
  • Make this your second browser.

    By DreamwaIker
    So many sites don't offer mobile users full options even when they attempt to view advanced features or "full sites" on mobile (if you're lucky enough to even be using a site that has those and remembers you want them when you open another page on the site). Puffin browser is the perfect response to this stupid trend of inaccessibility. It tells sites "No, just treat this exactly as a PC and let me actually use all the features of your site." When something doesn't work in your main browser, go to Puffin as your trusy number two.
  • I have never seen better

    By Allmineweretaken
    This puffin web browser is awesome! It has all of the things a good browser has, and once you get the hang of all of the buttons, controls, etc., it works really great! The only thing I would change about this is that I think it would be better if there was a video recorder. There might be one in the Pro version, but I lack Money and storage at this time. Anyway, I just think it would be nice to have the ability of recording the sites a person plays on and possibly share the videos with friends or post them on the internet afterwards.
  • Great, but laggy..

    By Painted Serenity
    Puffin is great, it lets you play games without having adobe flash player, so why am I rating this 2 stars? There is MAJOR lag, I keep on refreshing and it still won't work. So it makes me go to settings and fix the network, even though nothing is wrong with it. Once I go to a game, it freezes. I'm not okay with this, I use this app almost every day, but I need to put my foot down. The lag is enough, I'm getting very sick of it and I'm starting to use my computer more often. The only think I suggest you should fix is the lag. Nothing else. The updates keep getting worse and worse, and I think you should actually start fixing the app instead of making it worse, but the rest is PERFECT. Thanks for making this app.
  • A must for older devices or slow networks

    By Sonicfan1080
    This browser starts up super fast and loads web pages at crazy speeds. I was all but done with going to certain sites on my aging iOS devices but this browser makes browsing a real joy again! The flash support means I can watch much more of the free streaming content on my mobile devices too. I really only use chrome when I want to see the most recent stories page... Otherwise I only use this browser on mobile. Goodbye Safari and those annoying ios9 page crash reloads.
  • Great but buggy at times

    By MeIYouThey
    First of all, I would have given this a 5 if it weren't bugging out at certain intervals and interrupting my background apps used to stream music and playing certain flash games. But aside from the hiccups, this app has been da bomb! I can scale pass the things that would've been difficult on a mobile form and it'd saved me so much data. Also the browser's design altogether is just pleasant to look at and you can have the choice of editing its appearance. Also, the mouse-like trackpad for that extreme precision is sooo very helpful! (It makes target clicking with my fingers less stressful)
