Play poker on your iPhone

iPhone PokerThanks to a certain section in Apple’s developer terms and conditions you can play free poker games on your iPhone but you’re currently unable to download real money poker apps for the popular mobile device. However, thanks to new Java-based Mac poker software, that’s available from leading online poker sites such as UltimateBet, you can now play poker on your iPhone for real money.

Fun and free poker apps have very little appeal to the dedicated online poker player, seeming like a waste of time to many, but an Apple rule for iPhone app developers prohibits them from writing software that offer real money games of poker. However, the Safari web browser that’s installed on the iPhone can become a useful way around the iPhone poker conundrum.

You would think that you could simply play poker on your iPhone at any online poker site that offers instant play through a PC browser, but thanks to other commercial stances that Apple has taken, you cannot play Flash content on the iPhone. The way that UltimateBet has gotten around this challenge is by writing a no-download Java-based version of their poker software for Mac users, which can also be used from an iPhone or iPad.

As a final thought regarding playing poker on any mobile device, not just iPhones, you may find playing for long periods of time using such a small display leaves your eyes feeling tired. The small display can also make betting and playing in general a little bit more tasking. However, if you want to play a few hands at a cash table while you wait for your bus or train home of an evening, you should visit UltimateBet by clicking the banner above and register for a new playing account then head over to from your iPhone.
