Hi Guys,
I need to test and fix the site pages to work for an Ipad. The site is already built with Table based Layout and Flex. And have couple of doubts.

1. Can flex application run on Ipad? The application is already built in Flex. Will it work on ipad?
2. How to test the ipad application on a regular PC, I don't have a real Ipad to test?
3. How to test the application for both orientations (Portrait and Landscape)
4. Will table based sites render well on Ipad?
5. Suggest Best ways of fixing the issues encountered for Ipad? Shall I convert the existing application pages to html5?
6. Which browser to target/test in for ipad keeping in mind the user base.

Appreciate your responses/work around for the above queries.

This has been a major challenge - because Apple has been unwilling to allow Flash to run on their products. With a little research I did find this recent demo of a Flex application running on an iPad 2. His notes mention "This application was built with the current engineering builds of Flex and AIR with iOS support."
