PokerTube Comes to Apple and Android with Mobile App Launches
11 March 2015, Edinburgh, UK (Press Release) — Leading poker media hub PokerTube (www.pokertube.com) has launched native mobile and tablet apps for iOS and Android devices, giving poker fans the chance to watch all their favourite videos on the go.
With the launch of the new apps, PokerTube is poised to become the best and highest quality source of poker news and media in the world. The apps are available for download from the iOS App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon App Store, and feature all the video and news content from the desktop site, as well as some special new features.
Poker players who are interested in playing on a mobile or tablet platform will be able to access exclusive sign-up deals with some of the best poker sites around, while everyone who downloads the PokerTube mobile app will be able to access the PokerTube social wall – essentially a Facebook for poker players.
“While many online poker rooms have spent years developing sophisticated mobile platforms, affiliates in poker – and in the wider igaming space – are yet to produce top quality products in this niche,” said Jamie Nevin, founder of PokerTube parent company 180Vita.
“It can be a challenge, as you have to consider complicated elements around mobile tracking, geolocation, and displaying offers specific to different mobile devices. However it is a challenge we are more than capable of rising to with PokerTube.”
Alongside the mobile app launches, 180Vita has significantly updated the PokerTube.com desktop site, with new features including a regularly updated PokerTube Leaderboard and a comprehensive tournament calendar. 180Vita has also introduced a new and improved video player page, allowing poker fans to watch all their favourite clips and videos with absolutely no adverts.
Players can sign up to a variety of leading online poker sites through PokerTube.com, while sister site PokerVIP.com runs the biggest rake races in the world, giving out more than $150,000 in rake race promotions in November and December.
