Literally out of nowhere, PartyPoker cut off support for their downloadable Mac software. Players who have it on their computer find it unusable after the latest update. They leave us to assume that they are abandoning the project by removing all mentions of it from their website.
A player that goes by the name of Pin left a comment in a previous post with PartyPoker’s reply to this issue:
We would like to inform you that as of now we have stopped offering Macintosh compatible software. We certainly will take the demand into consideration and start working on it.
As of now, you may consider using a cross-platform application like Virtual PC to run our software on your MAC Machine. (â€¦)
Alternately, you can play on our No Download version (Anywhere Ã½ Beta). You can access the No Download version of PartyPoker from the below URL: www.PartyPoker.com/anywhere (â€¦)
Pin also mentioned that the server for the no download version was down for a few days, during the same time PartyPoker began having issues with the Mac download software. At the moment the no download software seems to be working, along with a new addition of Sit & Go’s to the lobby.
You can access the no download ‘anywhere’ software by clicking the download icon on the PartyPoker home page. Or if you’re fed up with PartyPoker like me, you can download Full Tilt Poker or wait for the Mac version of pokerstars to be released.
