Mobile app vs Mobile version

Mobile app vs Mobile version_Powerbets

As we noticed the recent trend of local betting sites not having mobile apps, it is interesting to note if this is a good or bad thing for punters.

We have made a table with the pros and cons of a mobile app vs mobile version and you can make a decision from there. 

Mobile App Mobile Version 
Constantly logged onNeed to login each time you bet
Takes up space on mobile No downloading required 
Uses less dataHigh data charges 
Can be slow at times Very fast speeds
App can receive new promotions No notifications on the mobile version


There is no doubt that Powerbets spared no expense when they designed their mobile version as it has everything that a punter would need to enjoy their betting experience.

You can quickly see that they have spent a lot of time and money to rival any of their competitors in terms of their mobile version.

They do however fall short in the promotions departments as they only have two worthwhile bonus offers on their site.

They will struggle to attract new players unless this changes in a hurry.
