The mobile poker world never seems to stand still. And we’re thankful for that because this constant movement has allowed the game to churn out some very exciting advancements. So just what exactly have these advancements brought us recently? Well, there are three great developments that mobile poker apps now feature today, which we’ll discuss more in depth below.
Fast-Fold Mobile Poker
Several years ago, it didn’t seem like wireless poker would ever offer more than choppy gameplay on a single table. Then came multi-tabling, which was definitely nice for grinders who need more volume to make money. And now, we have fast-fold variants that cut out the waiting time in poker. As soon as you fold your hand, you are whisked away to another table with new cards. This means that there’s no time spent waiting on that annoying opponent who takes the whole clock to fold 2-7 under the gun.
Many of us have seen news about poker sites beta testing their mobile poker apps at $0.01/$0.02 stakes, which is unimpressive to say the least. Luckily, most poker rooms have moved far beyond the early beta-testing phase and into an era where mid-stakes play is available. The end result is that you no longer have to toil away in the micro stakes if you’re looking for a bigger challenge and more profits.
More User-friendly Software
When online poker reached its peak around 2010, many poker room lobbies were cluttered with lots of buttons, games and table-selection features. The poker industry realized how these complications were turning the average player off so they began making sites more friendly for recreational players. This process has transitioned to mobile apps, where many sites are on a mission to ensure that their lobbies and tables are user friendly. So whether you’re an experienced grinder or just somebody who occasionally likes playing poker, you can appreciate these changes.
Like we said in the beginning, the mobile poker world doesn’t stand still. So you can expect to see even more exciting advances in the future.
