Flash on IPhone
If I understood things right, Iphone can't show all the great widgets that my and other peoples websites might have unless the people with IPhones download a special flash app to their phone. I'm not an Iphone user my self, but would be great if my site looked the same on a phone as it does on the web. Is there anyone that knows how to make this happen (or does most phones show flash anyway?
The iPhone does not support flash because apple does not want it to support flash. Basically it's a complex industry-political issue, and this is not going to change any time in the near future.
There is no reason that an iphone can't use flash except that it just doesn't work like that. Other phones might, but very few do. In fact, I don't know of any that do, but I assume at least some do.
The iphone does have a few helpful ways to work around this, but only a few. For example, there is a youtube app that allows the videos from youtube, but the youtube site doesn't work on the phone (except by opening the links in this youtube app).

But of course the effect not as smooth as flash, but it works

That's the most complicated issue in iphone ipad development but unfortunately all the previous posts are true! Iphone platform doesn't support flash and that what makes web sites with integrated flash applications or flash elements so vulnerable. Basically there're other codding languages allowing the same results as flash does but you will have to make all the work once again. So you should better decide is it so important you users could see your web site as you see it on your pc.
