I was recently asked to install Flash on new IPad. How do I do that?

Easy: you don't. No Apple iOS device runs Flash content. At most, you can create an AIR application that is packed for iPad or iPhone and run / install the application ( what Adobe did in short, was to package the entire AIR Player together with your application... so your application is wrapped two times and only runs because the AIR Player was also compiled into the final package at export - you can call this approach "a hack" or "workaround" or whatever... the idea is that Flash does not run on it ).

Well, to make it happen, you need to update the iPad with a version of iOS that supports Flash and then install Flash Player to actually view it. :p

So, no. No Flash content while you browser websites from the web browser in iDevices.
