The web company SwitchPoker.com has announced the release of the world’s first real money poker site which is compatible with the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Rather than develop an app which would just get rejected, the company decided to work within Apple’s restrictions and build a poker site which would run on the iPhone’s browser. Just as Linux users have been playing in-browser poker out of necessity for years, now iPhone users are skirting the problem of rejection with success.

Poker’s fast expanding popularity and the advances in the internet technologies available  to players and developers have been fuelling each others innovations. The newest developments in online poker and casino action has come a long way in recent years.
The slow start to the application is mainly because the US market has not been tapped yet.

Tournaments, full-ring and heads-up cash tables, Limit Holdem and Pot Limit Omaha are  in the works in the near future. The next wave of applications for online poker is not likely to come from Apple who have steadfastly refused to allow for real money wagering applications to enter their domain.
