The latest iPhone 3G S offers a growing range of poker resources that includes podcasts, training videos, and other applications, along with a range of programs that enable pokerheads to pit their skills against the computer or other players in a play-for-fun format that is both entertaining and good on-the-move practice.
Zynga’s Live Poker 40k is not only cheap to download at $3, but is one of the most popular of the iPhone applications, empowering the player to engage with live opponents or friends. Poker Tournament Manager is another popular application, enabling the player organise buy-ins, blind levels, and monitor performance from tournament to tournament – all for $5. And Poker Tracker helps players to enter in progress in live games and save it to their phones.
Three applications from PokerCruncher: Hold’em Odds Quizzer, PokerCruncher, and Poker Odds Teacher are all priced under $5 each and are highly entertaining. The first is a quiz program designed to test players' ability to judge equity ranges in a variety of Texas Hold’em situations, both pre- and post-flop, and the Poker Odds Teacher is a solid introductory program for learning poker odds.
Players can now submit their video or audio podcasts free to iTunes, making these available to a wider audience via the iPhone, and it appears that Full Tilt Poker is using this facility to offer podcasts giving tips from the Team Full Tilt pros. Other offerings include solid material from ESPN, Phil Gordon and respected columnist Andrew Feldman and other notable and expert guests.
For poker players wanting to hone their skills via iPhone, training sites like Stox Poker and Deuces Cracked now offer iPhone editions popular training.
