When it comes to iPhone and iPad apps, there are all too few games out there that encourage social interaction. With the fact that Apple is only ever increasing in popularity, with its very core focusing on social implementations of their products, it is a surprise that there are not more games like Texas Hold’em Poker out there.
Of those that are successful however, Texas Hold’em Poker is certainly one of the best. Why? Simply because it implements the entire social aspect so well. The app itself contains effectively two games in one – both Texas Hold’em poker and Omaha High – however focusing on the better known one.
To be honest, the game is what it says on the tin – it is an app in order to play poker, risk free, online with other players, and it does this incredibly well. However the graphics are also something to take note of as well.
Whereas a lot of poker games may simply focus on the poker playing involved, this app takes this into account, whilst also realising that any players will also want something to look at whilst they play, meaning they have used incredibly good graphics, especially for that of simply a poker game. Add to that the intuitive way in which you can invite current friends and even make new ones through just playing poker, and you have a truly great app.
Personally I think one of the great aspects of apps like this is the fact it is risk free, possibly even beneficial. It allows people to play poker, online, with other people, with no real financial risk, allowing you to carry on your love of poker and even get better at it, without having to spend a penny.

So, overall, an incredibly good app, well worth your time, especially as it is free.
