What do we think of the Betfair iPhone app?
Betfair’s iPhone app has one of the most in-depth home screens when it becomes to mobile betting apps. There are links to the most popular sports markets at any given moment, as well as links to where punters are putting their money. There are also links to virtual sports, live casino and other games if that’s your thing. Betfair were one of the first bookmakers to pioneer the ability to be able to cash out your bets whilst the action was still going on. At the bottom of the screen, there is dedicated cash out button so you can have direct and swift access to a screen that will let you know how much your in-play bets are worth. The hard part is deciding whether or not to take the money and run, there’s nothing difficult about getting to the cash out screen with the Betfair iPhone app.
Next to the cash out section, there is an A-Z section with links to all of the sports and markets offered by Betfair, as well as their other products and apps. In terms of the interface, it is obvious from when you first use the app that it has been carefully designed with the punter in mind. It’s very easy to navigate to your chosen market, deposit funds and get to bet placement all within the app.

The in-play layout with Betfair isn’t a sleek an experience as with Sky Bet or bet365 but Betfair do offer ‘quick bets’ for the football. You can bet what is going to happen, be it a corner awarded, a goal scored or a player judged to be offside in intervals of one or five minutes. You can turn a meaningless game into an extremely exciting one with Betfair’s quick bets. Another great addition to the Betfair iPhone app is the ability to log in with your fingerprint if you have a Touch ID enabled device.
Overall, it’s an app that we can’t fault and a huge must for any betting enthusiast determined to make a profit betting. Every time Betfair update the app it just gets better and better. With unique features like Acca edge, it should be one of the first apps you launch at the weekend to get those bets on early.
Great app great site! Bet365 used to be my main site and app… for many years. but now I’ve switched to betfair! It’s much more better. Plus cashouts just as good if not better. Same with odds! And promos much better. Definitely would recommend over any other main sites/apps.
