The best solution is to get rid of your Flash web site. No one on an iOS device can see your site. That, alone, is argument enough to update. –  DA01 Feb 16 '12 at 16:06

@DA01: that was going to be my suggestion as well: don't make it Flash. It's clunky, slow, annoying, and hard to update easily. –  Lauren Ipsum Feb 16 '12 at 18:23

@Lauren: I avoid Flash most of the time as well, but those are poor generalizations. Flash is certainly proprietary and lacks cross-platform support, but there's no factual basis for calling it any of those things. Compared to Java applets or trying to cludge JavaScript together to do the same thing, Flash offers much better performance. In fact, tests done comparing Flash vs. HTML5 for video playback showed Flash was significantly more efficient. Also, if you're unable to update your Flash site, you're doing it wrong. –  Lèse majesté Feb 16 '12 at 19:59

"but there's no factual basis for calling it any of those things" unless you are on a Mac, where for years it's been clunky slow and annoying. (One of the reasons Jobs axed it from iOS). –  DA01 Feb 16 '12 at 20:39

I also added "hard to update easily" because, for example, if the site is in WordPress, the client can easily change text without knowing HTML or CSS. If the site is in Flash, you have to own Flash and know how to use it to change anything. –  Lauren Ipsum Feb 16 '12 at 21:19

If you use many images, sounds or even videos you should check their file sizes. Try to avoid very big files by reencoding/compressing them to appropriate formats or exchaning them with smaller ones.

For pictures you can try to use vector based graphics (not for photos or similar) and convert all raw bitmap formats (such as .bmp) to PNG. Same for sounds: all raw wave files (such as .wav) should be encoded into MP3 for example.
