Slick App if You're Patient Enough to Enter a Lot of Info
We played around with the app for a couple hours and thought the overall experience was pretty solid.
The problem with these kinds of apps is that the average poker hand (and most live note-talking apps, actually) actually has a ton of information.
In a worst-case scenario you’re entering nine hole cards, nine stack sizes, five community cards, four betting rounds and a large number of bets and raises.
In that scenario you’re potentially entering 50 different pieces of information, when you include every suit of card and all bets, which is going to take some time.
On the bright side ShareMyPair handles the way you input information very well with cards on a slider while suits are presented on the same screen in a different slider.
But because it takes so much time you have to think it’s somewhat limited to poker pros, who have a ton of followers, or maybe home game addicts who want to heckle their friends or showcase a particular hand.
