Update 10-21-2010: Full Tilt Poker for Android has been released, and it is rumored that Fulltilt is BETA testing an iPhone poker app as well. Additionally, Switch Poker has opened it’s doors and allows real money online poker through an iPhone app.
The Apple iPhone comes bundled with a bunch of innovative features that essentially turns it into an iPocket-Mac. Poker sites will surely consider developing an iPhone compatible poker client, but it’s possible that some Mac poker rooms will already work with the iPhone.
At the very least you should be able to run a web browser poker site without additional installations or development. After all the iPhone uses safari, which is already compatible with a few poker sites, like Party Poker and 888Poker. There will also be plenty of computer simulated poker games for the iphone.
Downloadable poker rooms will be possible for the iPhone to, but it probably won’t be as easy as downloading your favorite mac poker room and playing online. This will either require special development from a poker site or a 3rd party program to make the installation possible.
NOTE: Full Tilt Poker closed their doors and as such, we recommend either any of the above listed rooms for non-US players, or for US players, you can play poker at Betonline, which has a great 25% unlimited bonus and depositing and withdrawal methods.
Go to our mobile poker page to see all iPhone and mobile friendly poker rooms. Note: there are no options for US players unfortunately.
