What Makes Mobile Apps Better Than Sites?
If there is one thing that the gambling industry is commendable for, it is its ability to change and adapt to the innovations of time. Throughout history, trends in gambling have evolved, making it one of the oldest industries in the world that somehow managed to stay relevant up until now. With the growing popularity of online gambling, there is a new innovation on the rise: the use of mobile applications. Mobile apps beat browser-based online casinos and betting sites all the way. Here are some of the reasons that make mobile apps better than browser-based sites when it comes to online gambling.
When a new player signs-up for an account on an online casino, they would most probably be bombarded with a myriad of game choices and promotions. It would be so many, one would probably get lost in the choices or spend a lot of time scrolling through until they get to the games that they want to play.
With applications like the Bovada mobile app, players will still have the same range of choices when it comes to games they can play. The difference is that right at the beginning, games recommended and displayed will be targeted according to the player’s preferences (which they would be asked for at the start), and will regularly be adjusted according to their app activity.
This saves a lot of time and effort for players and gives more time for playing and gambling.
One might argue that you can still view a browser-based online casino through your mobile phone. After all, all smartphones have their own web browser and there are tons of third-party browsers you can download as well. This is technically true. However, it is not as simple as that.
Most browser-based online casinos built their websites optimized for viewing on a desktop device. This means that its content–the codes, the images, the videos, and more–are created with the idea that it will be opened and viewed using a desktop web browser.
This leads to slower loading times on mobile viewing, and some elements of the website not loading properly or not loading at all.
In an effort to promote faster and efficient mobile browsing, Google has launched its Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMPs) on mobile viewing of external websites posted on Facebook. This eventually led to faster and more efficient loading times for links coming from Facebook and also other sites that adapted it as well. Still, some elements are just optimized for desktop viewing. Apps like the Bovada mobile app eliminate this hassle since mobile app contents are created and developed specifically for mobile devices.
“All in One Place”
Most mobile apps differ from online casinos and betting sites in a way that the applications offer everything right within the app. This not only saves time for players but also provides more convenience by giving them a hassle-free experience.
Do you need to top-up for your in-game credits? That’s easy. Since most apps are supported by the Google Play Store, payment can be done within the app. This is not only fast and easy but also gives players an extra layer of security.
The gambling industry has proven throughout time that it has the ability to be flexible and adapt to the changes and innovations, even when it comes to technology. While mobile apps are on the top of the trend right now, one can only guess how the industry could further innovate the future.
