Monday May 21, 2012 : BETFAIR EURO 2012 APP
Tailored access to tournament betting markets
Betfair's latest mobile offering is a new Euro 2012 app for the iPhone, featuring tailored access to tournament betting markets, integrated content and special offers across seven languages.
With a landing page in a Euro 2012 fixture list, the app gives users accessibility to market views with direct access to Betting.Betfair Team Guides, as they are published, by tapping on the countries' flags.
The mobile-optimised editorial and statistical content accessible in the app is a first for Betfair Mobile.
Users will be able to access a Euro 2012 Betting.Betfair news feed by swiping to the right from the landing screen. Again, users can navigate directly to markets with just one click from within the articles and will also be able to access Team Guides and Match Previews directly from the fixtures module.
The product additionally includes group tables and knockout-progress charts to ensure users are fully up-to-date during the tournament.
