Mobile apps

Who has the best mobile web and native application

Within the recent years we have been part of new revolutionary age of smartphones and tablets that have became more or less every day necessity. As tho whole web based community is shifting towards mobile apps development, the betting industry didn’t waste any time of lagging behind. The way betting providers have started to  interact with their customers in real-time through mobile apps, has brought the user experience on whole other level. But not all of the companies are able to offer great mobile betting experience. Only few online bookies out there are able to provide real native mobile application for download, all the others mostly rely on the web application customized for the use on mobile devices through the browser.

Difference between web and native mobile app

Main difference between mobile apps is whether or not they can be downloaded or do you simply use a web page that is customized for use on mobile devices. The latter are the apps that most betting providers are offering to their customers and are known as mobile web applications. This application simply run on your browser and is really more or less web page optimized to run on mobile devices. In all fair to its downloadable cousin, it does a pretty good job in performance and user experience with minimal drawbacks when compared to native apps. This are the applications  user can download, install and run from his device and have to be developed in a way so that they are specified for each individual operating system.

If you are wondering why the two app variants, the answer is really quit simple. Essentially it all comes down to development effort that has to be put into developing a native app and the restriction of the app stores as the native apps have to be pre-approved and licensed for them to get their space in specific online store. Most of the betting providers are mainly focused on two largest operating systems iOS and Android, as this are the largest in mobile use. Windows Phones and BlackBerrys on the other hand are not yet that widely popular that the companies would have the benefit of developing apps just for this kind of operating systems.

What to look in a betting mobile apps

When we are talking about bookmakers we usually focus on number of sports and divisions they cover, odds, payment options, etc. But when it comes down to the mobile app experience one should pay more attention on how quick the performance of the app is, how useful the design is and how clearly the betting offers are packaged.  In the long run, unnecessary clicks and long loading time can be more than annoying and just takes the fun out of the game. So what is important in a mobile app? Here are few crucial facts what a good app should look like:

  • Clarity and usability so that the user doesn’t lose overview on a small screen with the wide range of betting services
  • Range of betting options
