Betfair Mobile App Review

Betfair are the biggest betting site in the United Kingdom not to mention being the original and still the most popular betting exchange on the planet. And as you might expect from a company founded on such innovation, Betfair have similarly developed a mobile betting experience that is second to none.

The Betfair app is available for current smartphones and mobile devices. It should be noted however that functionality differs depending upon the device you are using. The Betfair Sportsbook mobile app is also a web application that is available via a number of mobile devices without a requirement to download and install an app.

In terms of features, the Betfair mobile betting experience is the same as if you were betting from a computer. You can place bets on every market available both pre-event and in-play, make deposits, withdraw winnings and take advantage of the Betfair bonus and regular enhanced odds offers.

While the app may not appeal to the eye, at least in the way other bookmaker betting apps do, it is still a great betting experience and one of the most stable and reliable mobile betting experiences available with a range of settings available to customise to your preference. At the end of the day, that's what matters most. There's no need having a great looking app if you can't depend upon it when you need it. Right? The Betfair app is slick and responsive with an incredible amount of information available to you with merely a few taps of the screen.

One of the aspects we most enjoy is the apps interactivity. This means less need to switch back and forward, from screen to screen, with virtually everything you easily accessible in the one frame. This is great particularly if you are looking to bet on sport in play. The less you need to do, the more efficient your in play betting will be.

In this Betfair mobile app review, we'll take you through everything you need to know about this great app and the mobile experience of betting with Betfair. Let's first begin with how to download the Betfair app.


How To Download And Install The Betfair App

Oh and if you're using a Blackberry (really?) or a Windows Phone, you can still access Betfair via your device by visiting their desktop site. There is no mobile app or site for Blackberry or Window Phone users. Users of these devices only have access to the Betfair desktop site via their device. This may not sound ideal, which to be perfectly honest, it isn't, but it isn't altogether awful either. The desktop site runs smoothly on these devices giving you a more than acceptable mobile betting experience.

Downloading the mobile app is easy. Accessing the download depends on your device. Iphone users can download the app from the Apple iStore while Android users can access the download from Android app stores.
