Best Poker Sites for Mobile Devices - Play ANY time, ANY where!
As consumers these days, we're certainly more demanding than we were a decade or so ago. We want something when we want it, and where we want it. If you're of a certain age, you'll remember how to see a movie you either had to go to the movie theatre, or wait a couple of years for it to appear on terrestial TV, or wait six months for it to be out on video or DVD. These days, if you want to watch something you can usually watch it online within seconds if you sign-up for an online streaming service - how times have changed!
One of the things online poker players want is the ability to play their poker when they want to, and where they want to. We don't have to carry a laptop around with us all the time if we want to get online - we have smartphones and tablets now for that. So, if we're on the train on the way home from work and we fancy a few hands of Texas Hold'em poker, then all we have to do is whip out our mobile device, sign into our favorite poker room, sit down at an online table and see a few flops and 3-bet the *bleep* out of those useless fish.
Unfortunately, not all poker rooms offer mobile poker clients, and some that do will only have a client for iOS-based systems and not Android, or vice versa. In addition, some clients are woefully short of crucial functions, such as playing in MTTs or depositing to and withdrawing from cash accounts. It's odd, as smartphones have been around for plenty of years now, yet mobile poker room apps are still a relatively new phenomenom.
Not all Mobile Poker Clients are the same ...

If you're going to be playing using a mobile device, then if you take my advice you'll do some field experimentation first on the play money tables. There's nothing worse than playing poker over a dodgy connection - especially if you're playing on a real money table. Imaging going all in with pocket kings and a king and a pair of queens on the flop, then losing your connection! Most online poker apps have safeguard scenarios which will keep you in the play if you lose connectivity with your table, but just to be on the safe side, it's best to choose an app where you know you're not going to be flitting off and on the table every couple of minutes. Try a few play money games first so you can rate how well an app performs on your device - then you won't be putting your chips at risk when it comes to real money play.
