Pocket Odds for iPhone released

19 Nov 2010

I finally got my iPhone version of Pocket Odds up in the store (actually it's been out for almost 2 weeks, but wanted to get version 1.1 out which fixed a few problems before announcing it).

The app allows you to deal cards to up to six players and view their win/tie/equity odds for each street of a Texas Hold'em Poker game. You can also view a breakdown of the likely winning hands (see screenshot below). As with the website version all odds are exact to the nearest 0.01%.

It uses the PhoneGap framework so it could be created with JavaScript instead of Objective C, I plan to create some more iOS apps with PhoneGap in the future, and if I can get my hands on an android phone then hopefully support that platform as well.

I noticed that the front page of my site is quickly filling up entirely with poker related content, I really must get some other stuff released, I'm not only interested in Poker!

As always, feedback is appreciated.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
