PKR, one of the larger online poker sites launched a brand new App around a month ago which allows UK players to access their poker game offerings on an iPad, well today they have made live their brand new iPhone compatible poker platform.
The PKR iPhone compatible software and platform is once again currently only available to their UK based player base, it is thought that they plan to roll out this new piece of kit to all of their Europe based players in the coming months, and are possibly using their UK players to test the product.
Early indications are that it really is a state of the art piece of kit, and will revolutionize the way their players can access their poker site, with an easy to use and navigate operation which simply require users to tap the screen instead of using a mouse or the phones keyboard, this should make playing poker at PKR a whole lot easier.
It does look like PKR have been bitten by the mobile App bug, as they have also recently launched a range of casino style free play games such as their Blackjack and Roulette Apps which allow players to log on to their site at no risk and be able to play these two very popular casino games via their mobile devices.
Experts are predicting that is a few years time there will be more people playing poker on a mobile device than use a computer or laptop, whilst this new way of playing may seem completely alien to some people, once players get to grips with the ease of use of these poker Apps it really will appeal to many.
When using a poker App you are in fact given access to everything that the original poker site offers, so you can play for free, take part in live poker tournaments or sit down and play the usual poker table games, the only major difference is that you are doing it on a smaller screen and whilst you are out and out and on the go as opposed to being sat at home!
PKR are one of the busier poker sites, and whilst not one of the first to embrace this new way of playing, via a mobile App, they are certainly catching up with their competitors who have been offering them for a year or so, and the one PKR offers does come with lots of bells and whistles and must have cost them a small fortune to develop and launch it.
