partypoker has just released an update of its Android and iOS mobile apps to give customers the ability to access new functions and more offerings that are now available on smartphones and tablets.
bwin.party's Head of Public Relations Warren Lush's June 20th entry on the partypoker blog says the update will allow players "to play in one of the world’s leading online poker rooms quicker and easier than ever before."
partypoker first brought players the option to join sit-and-go tournaments from Android devices — the latest update released on June 20th brought the feature to iOS-powered iPhones and iPads.
partypoker's mobile poker app's updated version also includes the ability to filter tables for stakes (high, medium, low) and format (heads-up, short-handed and full-ring), and adds the ability to automatically re-join active sit-and-gos if the app accidentally shuts down, and opens the door to access casino games like roulette, blackjack and slots.
The new app also allows seamless device transition which is one of the most noticeable improvements. What it translates to is that players can start playing on a mobile device and finish it on their desktop and vice-versa.
Team partypoker's Kara Scott had this to say about the introduction of sit-and-gos to mobile devices, “In the early days of mobile phone apps and games, being able to play more substantial online poker for real money seemed a pipedream. With this extensive new offering including Sit & Go tournaments, partypoker is making a clear statement that this is the future of online poker. Ease of access, speed and freedom is absolutely key! This is just the first step and partypoker aims to continue to improve and grow the product. We want customers to be able to play their favourite games at a time to suit them, whether it be just for fun or for real money. If you’re sat on the bus or in the bath, this app will bring the party to you when you’re ready to play.”
