In theory you can jail-break an Ipad and then install Flash on it. You can "restore original settings" to go back to pre-jail break status.
Having said that, I have no idea if that actually works, because I don't know if it works. If you have an ipad and willing to try jail break, I would be interested in the results. I would consider an ipad if that works.

I have already posted several responses to similar inquiries in other threads. My standard answer looks something like this:
If Apple remains one of the market leaders in this space, it is likely that there will eventually be a way for people to play on BBO through their iPhones and iPads. Currently we have no concrete plans to do anything about this and I am not in a position to predict when we might make such plans or, once we do, how long in might take to execute such plans.
Apple might be able to speed things up if they change some of their (absurd IMO) policies. There have recently been some signs that this might actually happen.
As usual, we have a lot of things on our collective plates. Given that there is serious uncertainty in terms of how things are going to play out in this market (including with respect to whether or not Apple devices will remain popular or if they will go the way of the Mac), we are currently unwilling to commit the necessary resources to an Apple-specific project (sorry).
Our position on these matters could change at any time (but please don't bother trying to convince me to shift gears - I do not want to get involved in a discussion about this).

It looks like iSwifter hosts a certain number of flash games that it then allows to be accessed in an html browser. Could it do the same for BBO?

I also tried Cloud Browser ($.99), which *does* work, but is slow and doesn't let you resize, so the BBO screen doesn't all fit and needs to constantly be moved around. I think Cloud Browser works by them hosting your internet session and letting you view it, so any typing you do (say, entering your user name and password) is theoretically hackable by your host. Also, unless you pay even more, the sessions are limited in time; I didn't look at how much these plans cost as it didn't seem like a viable solution.

1. if you have windows running on a computer set up remote desktop access
2. if you have wireless router, which you will need
have port 3389 set to redirect to the computer running windows
3.on the ipad
download a progarm like jump desktop
set up a RDP not vpn, access
best to now use the same log in and password as your windows machine, and use port 3389
so now on ipad use Jump desktop to log on to your machine(windows)
now you can use BBO from there
now the last piece of the puzzle and most important part------------
get an IPAD Stylus for about $9
it really makes a difference on bidding and clicking on cards
if anyone needs help on setting us mstsc.exe(remote desktop) you can msg me or email me
it definetely alot better than using your finger

As a software designer myself, I'm full aware of the debate related to Flash technology. But it is just one of means to program a game interface, it'll be a shame to let it be the hinder to prevent BBO (a great site IMO) from reaching and appealing to more audience, especially kids and young people.
One suggestion to BBO would be to make it online play open by defining an open interface and leave presentation out to whoever want to implement the user interface on their own gadgets.

If apple just supported Flash, BBO bridge could be played on apple devices just like any other modern device that supports Flash like PC;s, mac's, xoom, galaxy Tab, etc.
