With the help of mobile betting applications, punters can now easily access gambling services regardless of their location. There aren’t any major differences between Android and iOS betting apps. However, we will discuss a few important variations that we hope will help punters make informed decisions in the future.
Benefits of using Android betting apps
Android betting applications are more accessible. This is because more punters own Android phones than iOS ones. Players can easily find their favourite betting apps on the Google Play store. Many bookmakers also allow punters to download the app from the official desktop website.
Less data usage
Using Android betting apps provides a great betting experience while consuming fewer data. This is essential for punters who do not have stable internet connections. Additionally, some applications come with a built-in data saver option that punters can turn on when placing their bets.
Customizable and user friendly
When compared to iOS betting apps, Android applications are more user-friendly. This is because they run on an open-source platform that allows the software to be optimized depending on the device being used.
Android betting applications available on Google Play often get new beta features that are made available to a selected group of people. Punters can send their feedback and help the bookmaker refine the new features before releasing the final update when this is done.
Favours small bookmakers
Bookmakers who have just begun their betting companies are often advised to develop Android betting applications. The development process is easier, faster and more cost-effective than when developing iOS applications. Also, with the help of Google Play, small bookmakers can open up their services to more punters and grow their business.
When designing an Android application, a bookmaker may decide to opt-out of several features that seem bulky, such as live betting and streaming. Doing this may negatively affect punters and their ability to place bets.
Benefits of iPhone betting applications
Many Android betting applications offer decent graphics. However, we can confidently say that Apple smartphones provide a better gambling experience than Android phones. With these devices, images are clearer, and live streams and other features load faster.
Impressive number of features
Bookmakers often fit their iPhone betting applications with all features found on the official desktop website. This may not be the case for Android applications, which ultimately makes it easier for iOS users to bet. For example, an iOS application may allow punters to live stream, while an Android application may not have this feature. iPhone applications may also integrate mobile payment methods such as Apple Pay which make it a lot easier to deposit funds.
Similar Design and Navigation
Unlike Android devices, Apple retains its source code which means the application’s design remains the same in every iPhone. This allows punters to easily navigate the application even after getting a new phone.
Although Android applications take necessary security measures to protect users against malware, iPhone users usually enjoy better protection. iOS devices provide top-notch security against data theft and viruses while ensuring privacy and user identity is protected.
Requires More Storage
iOS applications are much bigger than their Android equivalent. In fact, an iOS betting app is usually four times the size of an Android one. This difference in app size is considerable and should not be ignored. This difference also means iPhone users use more data to download and keep their betting apps updated.
Above all, pick the device that comfortably supports all your favourite games. Choose a phone with a reliable system, stunning display, quality sound and power-saving capabilities. A sleek and light phone will truly boost your betting experience.
The bottom line is, seasoned gamblers and bettors know the quality of their devices matters as much as the quality of their bets. So choose wisely!
