SWF Player – Flash File Viewer

swf-player-logoThis is a universal SWF viewer. It can open any file, be it a vector design or animation for your favorite game.

Please note that you have to install a plugin by Adobe Flash Player. Without it, the app won’t function well. You can do it on the official website. The link will be in the description of the app on Google Play. 

Now let’s see what you can do in the app: 

  • SWF Player can open and play the file of any size. Even if you work with a huge file containing animations for a game, the process won’t take too long. Just tap on the file and wait for it to be opened. 
  • The app supports many cool functions, such as zoom. It is especially great for vector designers who need to see each detail. 
  • Customize the app so that it looks perfect for you. For example, you can set the background color. If you want to use a dark theme, just choose the black color. 
  • The app enables you to perform SWF sharing. This will allow you to share files at the click of a button. 
  • When you have a big number of files, you can browse through files via using search. This will save you your precious minutes. Android users know pretty well how hard it might get when their try to find something important. 

Unfortunately, the app has some downsides. First of all, it often crashes in the middle of the process. You have to open the app once again and start from the very beginning, which is annoying. Sometimes the app might function slowly. However, it’s hard to understand the reasons for such glitches. 

The application is quite lightweight, though. 12 MB will be enough to install SWF Player. 

You can get the app on Google Play and work with SWF files for free. There will be some ads that keep the content free for you.
