We all know for famous Zynga’s Texas Hold’em poker. Its browser version is most popular. Its simple interface, good graphics and fast gameplay made its way on top of the ladder in online poker games. There is also an app for it if you want to play it on your smartphone. Here are few reasons why should you download it and why not.

Zynga-Poker-–-Texas-Holdem-IconFirst : it’s huge. Its installation size depends from your device (mine was 200MB) and could be really huge to download. I got it from Google Play Store and it wasn’t fast, although I have great Wi-Fi network. If you do not have a stable Wi-Fi connection you shouldn’t download. Memory should not represent any problem because smartphones from 2013 have a big memory and you can always upgrade it with a memory card.

Its fast gameplay depend on your smartphone. The better phone you have, the better gameplay and its dynamics will be. If it is an older version of Android or iOS systems, things are going to be slower and playing will be tougher. But most of these problems are solved with upgrading system software. In order to get a quality gameplay everything must go smooth.

Another bad thing is that you can’t always easily hit the button you want to hit. Sometimes you hit fold and you have wanted to raise or check. If you have big fingers, then it’s better for you to play on your PC. Despite having a great look and fast gameplay this can represent a real problem, and that you can easily become more nervous and your game quality will be downgraded.
On my smartphone, a huge problem was battery. Literally, app is using so much RAM memory that is draining your battery quickly. If you want to play, you must play plugged in.

There is an also a great advantage that you can play poker anywhere where you can connect to Wi-Fi. If you can get good reception, game is just fantastic. This is not just for the Zynga app but also of any others. They all are pretty much the same; only the interfaces and graphics are slightly different.

I must say that overall playing experience is a little bit better on smartphone or better yet on tablet. Tablet is big enough so you won’t make a mistake and it’s much better when playing on a bigger screen. You can easily sit back in your chair and just connect. But sitting in a chair and wielding a mouse is better feeling. I hope that someday in near future, they will develop apps that can transmit emotions so you could determine whether someone is bluffing or not.

Anyway I think that poker apps on smartphones are great idea when you want to play outside your home but if you are at home, stick to the PC.
