Hello,
I have a Goggle Nexus 7 2013 which I just got.
Was a 4.1 and up graded to 4.3 or 4.4.
I been trying to play this game Criminal Minds on it, but it says I need Adobe Flash Player.
I've been trying to install it but it will not install.
It says Adobe doesn't work on tablets anymore.
Is there any thing I can do?
Thank-You,
Johngod

Is Criminal Minds an app, or is it a game played through the browser?

Regardless, if your copy of Flash won't install on your device, you need a modified version, which you can download here. Install it and then see if your game will work.

I think so but I heard chrome wasn't compatible with that flash and android.
Something like that, anyway I needed to download firefox or dolphin. Which I did ,Both of them.
Should I copy this link into my tablet to download there?

You shouldn't need to download flash, the Dolphin browser has flash support built in. (Maybe you need to enable it in the settings for Dolphin?)

Chrome on Android has never supported Flash Player. Just an fyi. One installed using Dolphin it will also work with several other browsers.

Dolphin supports Flash, but the Flash apk is still required for Flash items to display in Dolphin's window. In Dolphin's settings, make sure Flash is set to "Always On". Firefox also supports Flash, but like Dolphin, also needs the Flash apk installed and needs to have Flash set to "Always On" in its settings. Puffin is the only browser I know that doesn't require the Flash app to display Flash items.

I only installed the Flash Dolphin required but it also worked with Firefox. All I'm saying is that it didn't require a separate download of an APK other than for Dolphin

flash player was a nightmare constant crashes and update, glad it`s receding into the past, html5 is the way to go, until the other shoe drops.
