Smartphones and tablets have billions of users from all over the world. Even though people thought that those devices wouldn’t be that popular, it turns out that almost every person around the world uses them. That’s why it shouldn’t be surprising that those devices have changed many industries, including online betting.
It seems like smartphones had a positive impact on iGaming because millions of people bet online on a daily basis. In order to make their experience even better, some brands decided to create dedicated mobile applications and websites that users can put to the test.
Those things are great and easy to use, but sadly, there are some problems that you may face before you start using them. Let’s check out some of the things that you have to deal with.
Even if the bookie has an app, it may not be available on Google Play
As you probably know, Android is the most popular mobile OS, which explains why it is used all over the globe. To allow more people to access their platforms, bookies and casinos often develop an application for this OS. For example, the Coral app is created by some of the most talented developers in the world, which explains why it is so easy to use and offers loads of things.
Unfortunately, similar to other Android apps, this one is not available on Google Play. People who want to bet on the go and use Google’s software will probably need to get an apk file. The latter will allow them to access their favorite betting operator, but it also requires them to change some of the settings on their device to install the file.
Some browsers may not allow you to create a web app
If you don’t want to download the Coral app for Android and iOS, you need to use the bookie’s mobile website. Every gambling operator has a mobile site because some users don’t want to download and install any applications.
Besides those types of betting platforms, some brands do not have any applications, which is why their customers create web apps. These home screen shortcuts will allow them to access the site the same way as if it has an app. Sadly, some browsers may not allow you to try out this feature, which means that you need to choose your mobile browser carefully.
The mobile app/website might look completely different from the desktop platform
In most cases, online casinos and bookmakers want to make their mobile apps and websites look as close to their desktop platforms as possible. This allows their users to feel more comfortable while betting on the go.
Having said that, you may come across a lot of operators that have completely different designs for their mobile platforms. Besides a different layout, some companies even use all sorts of additional colors that are not available on the desktop site.
