Entirely browser-based and accessible via Safari at their website, the app does have one major difference compared with their rival apps, with both Bovada Poker and BetOnline Mobile offering their full roster of games to players from Apple devices. ACR’s mobile product is very limited when it comes to game type (at least for now): there’s only one mode to choose from – Jackpot sit & go’s.
There’s also a number of promising features boasted by the browser-based app. It’s surprisingly fast for a client that runs via website – and refreshingly smooth. The developers have even added multi-table functionality at this early stage, which is something that the likes of Bovada, Ignition Casino and Bodog don’t provide for their iPhone users.
While it must be conceded that the ACR app isn’t currently a legitimate contender for the best mobile offering for US players (Bovada arguably claims that title all things considered), the future is positive if its fundamental design is anything to go by. Americas Cardroom have stated their intention to provide a full poker app for iPhone users in the future. Given the many unique features that their PC client currently has (such as 6+ Hold’em games, active Stud tables and rakeback competitions like The Beast and Sit & Crush), ACR’s mobile poker app will be welcomed with open arms when it does make its full release.
