888 Poker Invites Players To Test Android Poker App

888 Poker MobileReleased last month and currently still in a testing phase, 888 Poker has launched an Android poker app for tablets and mobile smartphones and is inviting poker players to test the app and to provide feedback.

Currently in beta, only Texas Hold’em ring games at certain stake levels are available to players on the go, but SitNGo and multi-table tournament offerings are expected to be included in the options for players following the conclusion of testing. Players who try the app on their mobile devices will join the pool of players from the network who are logging on via their desktops and laptops.

After downloading and installing the Android app from 888 Poker, there will be certain unfamiliarities for those accustomed to the desktop downloaded or instant play software. The poker tables look similar to the tables found at the main site. However, there is no conventional lobby. Instead, you can opt to find poker tables from two different sections, Quick Seat and Beginners. A click on Beginners permits the three no-limit options of 9-max at $0.01/0.02, 6-max at $0.03/0.06 or 9-max at $0.05/0.10. The Quick Seat section affords many more choices, such as choosing between fixed-limit, pot-limit and no-limit games, as well as stake ranges from $0.02/0.04, all the way up to $5/$10.

Other features that you won’t find on the Android app are the abilities to make notes on opposing players, search for and find other players, multi-table, or watch hand replays. One feature that has received a lot of negative feedback in the testing process so far is the avatars, which appear to be too big for the limited constraints of a mobile device.

As with the launching of any new product, there may be certain elements or bugs that need modification or work. 888 Poker welcomes player feedback on the Android poker app by emailing 888PokerMobile@888Poker.com.

The 888 Android app features practice play, as well as real money Texas Hold’em ring game action. However, registering via a mobile device was found to be another detail that needs work. Brand new players are encouraged to sign up and take advantage of the our 100% up to $600 deposit bonus plus $8 free.
