    You just have to download the Puffin operating system at the playstore.

    I did it, and it works fine, but it is a little hard to harvest your points from the hotels.

    The Photon browser works pretty good to harvest the hotels at lunch time for me. Plus, it's free (except for the ads.)

    dgr1973, Puffin is available for iPhone. I think Photon is as well. I use Puffin on my iPhone. So now you can kiss your productivity good-bye.

    photon is available for iPhone, but I had to pay like 2.99 for it I think, maybe a bit more.

    Puffin is a trial on the iPhone, after trial ends you have to pay to use all the features I believe. Thats why I just went ahead and bought photon!

    Ipad/IPhone Play

    Just start playing today and found the Puffin browser to play on ipad. Is this the best way or another? Also, is there a way to check in on your iPhone (on properties or daily spin, etc)? Thanks!

    I use Photon on my iPad, think I paide $4.99. And I use Photon on my Samsung GSII, free through play store, IMO, a pain to use, but it works for me to collect during the day at work. Works perfectly on the iPad.

    I couldn't use Puffin either to move around the strip, so I switched to Photon. I would rather pay for something that works.

    It's a pain in the butt.

    Here's what I've found.

    Tap on the mouse so the trackpad comes up.
    Tap on the screen towards the direction you want the screen to move, then immediately do a swiping motion on the trackpad on the screen.

    It takes a little practice, then it seems to work most of the time.
    But like I said, it's a pain.

    Hope that helps.

    Will this work on Android devices - I'm thinking a Samsung Galaxy Tab?

    I use Photon Browser (shows ads with the Android version) on my Razr. Works fine, but I only use it to collect my chips. Otherwise, it can drain your battery pretty quick.

    Don't know about puffin browser but I use photon browser and there's a little box in the bottom corner that lets you change the pointer to a hand (drag) that lets you move around on the screen and collect from hotels.

    Photon is much better than Puffin, which to me was completely useless - I found Photon slightly annoying to use on my iPhone but it worked like a dream on my iPad. The cost of the iPad version is $4.99 but it is worth every penny to finally have something that allows MyVegas play on an ipad.

    2tweetz - you have to make sure you hit the little lightning bolt on photon, which allows you to use flash. Once you do that it should let you play the game.

    Works great on my iPad with photon. Just remember to hit that lightning bolt and then put the address in. Should work fine. However there are still plenty of Flash sites that won't work with it so if you buy it don't expect it to work perfectly with everything.

    Puffin

    I have been using the Puffin browser for the last couple of weeks with great results on my ipad. Today, after the 10 am est update of myvegas slots, I can no longer log into the slot game. ATM, Puffin does not work at all for the slots.
