» Full Review

The Switch Poker web app has the feel of still being in the beta stage of its development to some extent, but if you believe what the operator says this is more due to iOS platform instability than problems with the app itself – the sound effects are somewhat unreliable (depending on whether you’re playing on an iPad or the version of your iPhone).

The payment / banking options are also somewhat limited (Skrill, from Moneybookers, or Bitcoin).

However, if you’re feeling brave (and what poker player worth her or his salt would claim they can’t be courageous?!) then this new poker app is definitely worth a look, especially if you’ve got one of the latest generation smartphones with the Android OS.

A full Switch Poker review will follow soon.

Features

As you might expect with a new poker app, Switch is constantly adding to the features available via its mobile poker tables. Most recently it added the ability to multi-table (i.e. sit down at more than one of its poker tables at the same time) to its web application for iPads. Poker pros will can also enjoy this feature via the Switch poker Android app.

Other features include:

  • High stakes tables – up to €10/€20 NL
  • Regular rake races
  • Hand histories available via the Switch Poker web app

This independent operator also promises that tournaments, Omaha tables and other popular features are on its list of things to do. Let’s hope they don’t take to long to develop because they could really make a difference to this app’s popularity.
