Online gaming giant 888poker released an excellent mobile poker app for Android in 2012 with support for iPhone and iPad subsequently added.
888poker’s first offering in the mobile space is surprisingly robust with the ability to play real-money games over WIFI or 3G. Users have access to a full assortment of games including Cash Games, Sit & Gos and scheduled Multi-Table Tournaments with huge prize pools.
The free 888poker mobile app offers real-money stakes from $.03/$.06 up to $3/$6 for cash games as well as all the play-money action you could possibly want.
The 888poker app features a very useful quick-seat option (borrowed from the desktop version) that will get you in a game with very little wasted time.
Recently added access to multi-table tournaments has also been a huge boost to the app's general playability. You won’t find any multi-tabling options on the 888poker app but the fast-fold Snap Poker option is available and a fantastic choice for those on mobile.
if you've yet to try fast-fold Poker it's the perfect game for mobile as you only need to play on one table. As soon as you fold your hand you're instantly moved to a new table with a new hand and can rejoin the action immediately instead of waiting for some slow pokes to play out a 10-minute hand.
Despite a few shortcomings 888poker has always been known for its easy-to-beat games and you’ll find some spectacularly soft games on the mobile app. It's definitely a decent way to kill some time and make some money!

SOFTWARE AND GRAPHICS
The mobile 888poker software is very good. The app is streamlined for the mobile space and it’s easy to hop in a game with the quick-seat option.
Once you've registered all you need to load the app up and play is your username/password – no separate accounts are needed. You can also transfer funds across multiple devices.
The software that 888poker developed for iPhone is among the top five products in the industry. The lobby has been minimized to find games easily and, in our experience, it didn’t crash that often which can be a problem with new mobile clients.
The table functions are surprisingly robust with 1/2 and 3/4 pot bets. There’s also a handy slider so you can manually select your bet amount.
888poker Free iPad App
The free 888poker iPad app looks great and gives players a little more room compared to the smart phone versions.
The real highlight, though, is the No-Limit Hold’em cash games which are constantly running in both nine-handed and six-handed versions.
888poker is already known for having soft players and the mobile version is no exception. Every now and then you’ll find a table that will be very difficult to leave. If the conditions are right you’ll be able to pick up quite a bit of cash just riding the bus or waiting for a meeting to start.
