If you are interested in playing poker on your iPhone, here is a guide to poker rooms and poker apps to help you enjoy poker on the move.

Playing iPhone poker is one of the best poker gaming experiences the industry can offer, but the iPhone poker industry is still in its infancy, fraught with several technical problems, and needs to develop a lot. Since the iPhone is a feature-rich smartphone, poker players can expect the best in terms of graphics, sound effects, and game play or, in other words, they can expect a realistic poker gaming experience on their iPhones.

Apple does not approve of real money poker apps, online poker sites have not yet launched any native iPhone poker gaming software although efforts are on to create downloadable iPhone poker software clients for iPhones. The iPhone is compatible with Safari, a number of poker players felt that they could gain access to their online Flash poker accounts through their iPhones. Unfortunately, online poker rooms offering instant play or Flash poker games require Adobe Flash to work. Also, the iPhone does not support Flash, poker players cannot access instant play poker games through their iPhones.

The poker gaming industry has come up with several real money and free iPhone poker apps. Poker players, on their part, have developed roundabout ways of accessing their favorite online poker games on their iPhones.

Here is a list of some of the most popular iPhone mobile poker apps in the industry

  1. Zynga Live Poker : Zynga Live Poker is the best iPhone poker app in the industry, and interested players can download it from the app store. Players can connect to their MySpace and Facebook accounts through this app and play poker against real players. However, Zynga Live Poker is not a real money poker app, which means that players cannot win real money prizes; they can only enjoy the fun of playing poker on their iPhones. There are several variants of Zynga Live Poker; besides, players have the option of purchasing extra free chips and take part in poker tournaments.
  2. PokerStars iPhone Poker  : The PokerStars iPhone Poker app, which can be downloaded from the App Store, allows players to play their favorite poker games on their iPhones. Poker games are available for every skill level and bankroll size and players can play for fun as well as real money. Besides, they can grab generous bonuses and take part in lucrative tournaments.
  3. Texas Poker : Developed by Pokerist.com, Texas Poker is an excellent Texas Hold’em game for iPhone players. Besides, it includes a tutorial for beginners. Players can wager anywhere in the range of $100 to $1 million and choose from a wide range of tournaments. iPhone users can also play poker games for fun, create a profile and a list of friends, and track their progress.
  4. Mega Poker :  Mega Poker is just like Zynga Poker, but not as good as the latter. Although the games are great and free, Mega Poker just does not have as large a player base as Zynga Poker, owing to which there aren’t enough opponents to play against. Players need to create an account before getting started with Mega Poker.

Mobile Poker


Yes, the iPhone compatible versions of the poker sites allow their users to perform all kinds of payment functions.

The same poker games which are normally found on the sites’ desktop versions tend to be available on their iPhone mobile versions as well.

Most of these software versions include the multi-tabling feature in their package, although this is not very common practice.

Mobile apps differ in their response to this action. Generally speaking however, if the app is inactive for a certain period of time (usually up to 1 minute), it automatically turns off.

Poker sites often include a chat room in their list of features but they are not always transferred to the mobile app. In this specific case, you will need to check the poker site you have chosen
