Q. Why do mobile devices need a special version of ZooWhiz?

A. When you access ZooWhiz from your desktop or laptop computer ZooWhiz uses the Flash plug in working in your computer’s Internet browser to display ZooWhiz. Apple’s iOS found on all its mobile devices cannot use web sites that use Flash as their browsers do not support the Flash plug in. This means that we have had to rebuild the display for ZooWhiz Mobile using HTML5 and do some smart work on the ZooWhiz server.

A. No. ZooWhiz for Mobiles runs right in your browser without the need for an App like Photon, iSwifter’s Rover. These Apps are OK for viewing sites with Flash content but do not work well with web sites like ZooWhiz. You can also use ZooWhiz for Mobiles directly from an Android device with no need for an App.
