40 Flash sites suitable for Google Android 2.2 phones

Keep your Google Android 2.2 devices busy

More and more Google Android handsets are being upgraded to Froyo, version 2.2 of the operating system. The biggest improvement delivered by the new version of the OS is support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for mobile phones. Why not check out these 40 Flash-enabled sites.

Entertainment, videos and movie trailers

Sit back and relax watching some quality clips and videos on your phone.

Although you can't watch full-feature-length movies on your phone at Epix, the company put together a Flash-optimised mobile site with several extras, trailers, and interview clips for your Flash-enabled Android phone.

Homestar Runner
You can now watch these funny internet meme animated cartoons on your phone, with the Homestar Runner Flash site that perfectly fits your screen (in landscape). Alongside the animated clips, you can also play games featuring the same characters, and find some sweet clips of each character introducing themselves.

Go back to your childhood with plenty of video clips from the Nickelodeon network, as well as games and episodes from some of the most popular shows on the channel. Although its currently only available on the US site.

Warner Bros
Warner Bros has put together an Adobe Flash-designed mobile website featuring all the latest movie trailers, as well as a host of information about its current TV shows, DVD and Blu-Ray releases and on-demand offers.

Finally, a site optimised for smartphones with Flash is the Japanese Eco Zoo. It's an educational site for children to learn about animals in a zoo, but the animations and ingenuity put into the site are set to entertain adults as well.

Sites optimised for mobile flash

Here is list of sites not optimised for small screen sizes, but that do support Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 for Android 2.2. These sites will work on phones, but you will have to pan and zoom like with any other regular site. The biggest drawback with these sites (besides being optimised for a tablet or full-sized computer screen) is that if Flash content isn't scaled to fit small phones and video and animation could drain your phone's battery fast.
