Best Sports Betting Apps [How to Choose]

The best sports betting app will have everything you are looking for when wanting to install a gambling app on your phone. 

research

This is a personal choice and can be different from on person to the next, so I have put together a list of things to consider when choosing your next betting app, and which bookmakers provide them on theirs.

There is little to choose between bookmakers when it comes to sports available and a range of markets to bet on, and these are covered in full by our bookmaker review pages.

The list of things we rate as important are below

Mobile app content is very closely aligned to website content, so rather than repeat the information here, just click on a bookmaker name below to go to their full review site

Best betting App features

  1. Ease Of Use/Navigation
  2. Account Management & Banking
  3. Live Streaming
  4. Notifications

Ease of Use & Navigation

This is my number one consideration. Firstly I want something that is going to install quickly and doesn't need a user manual to understand how to get around and use. 

The best apps are easy to find and install and have clear menus and buttons to tap to take me where I want to go and quickly.

Account Management & Banking

account management

The ability to manage funds on the app is essential. The whole point of having a betting app on my phone is so I can use it on my phone. If I want to deposit or withdraw to my betting account but have to wait until I get home or back to the office after a break, I'm going to look for other options.

Live Streaming Apps

Now, if all betting apps have the first 2 sections above covered, it can not be said that they all offer app live streaming! This is where we start to narrow down the cream of the crop.

Betting apps

What is available to stream on the app is limited to what the betting site itself offers as far as live streaming is concerned and one would hope that what is available on the website has been reproduced for broadcasting on the app too.

Without going through every sport available from every bookmaker, the list below is simply highlights. For more in-depth detail take a look our complete live streaming guide for betting sites.

Bookmaker Best Live Streams
Betfair Horse Racing
Unibet European Soccer
bet365 US Sports
Sportsbet Tennis


Notifications

This is very subjective as one day I will want notifications for scores in matches I have bet on, and other days I may not. So if an app has them that's great but also an easy way to switch them on or off is important.

I particularly like the way the Betfair app handle app notifications. It provides me with reminders and information I want and is easy to manage. All bookies apps could benefit from similar functionality

New Betting Apps

The Unibet betting app is not a new app, but has recently favoured for a complete redesign and relaunch and is one of the reasons why it is rated as one of the best betting apps in Australia

Another reason is the consistency of the brand. There have been a number of betting sites over the past few years in Australia that have come gone and merged and rebranded, and as such, previously perfectly good betting apps have become a little less stable with accounts being closed and the need tor e-register.

Punters Want Stability

Unibet are a stable band that is not going to change, merge or close your account for no reason.

You can be pretty sure that this is not something that will happen with Unibet.

As new betting site apps appear on the market w will review them and bring you the latest information on what they offer you as a punter.

Betting App Reviews

It can be very helpful to access and read some real user reviews of the betting app you are considering.

Whilst you can read my review of each of them on the links in the section above, to be able to get a wider range of views and understand the positives and negatives a bigger source of reviewers can offer you should read more than one.

Listed below are some quotes from users, who have taken the time to give feedback on the various free betting apps

What are Online Betting Apps?

If you have arrived on this page looking for the answer to 'What are betting Apps?', the chances are you've read a good deal of the information above and have now got an idea.

Mobile Betting

Betting Apps are growing in popularity as online betting activity moves to mobile devices and away from home computers

If not, then a betting app is quite simply a mobile device version of a bookmakers betting website. 

Once mobile use became heavier and the public was demanding to be connected to the internet away from home and the office, betting agencies knew they needed to create mobile apps that reflected their websites.

In the early days, these were less functional, and not as good as the actual websites, for speed and ability to find and place your bets online.

Right now focus is fully on mobile and you will find new betting apps will be designed with mobile use first, and desktop features a poor second place.

Ease of Use

Apps do not need to be clever or complicated. We just want to find our event make our bet and wait for the outcome. Anything more complicated than that, and a betting app is not worth the effort. Keep it Simple.

The best sports betting app should be the one that offers the easiest navigation, usability and suits your betting habits and lifestyle. That may be placing bets for the day on your commute to work, or perhaps the last thing at night for the following day.

Top betting apps will be operational around the clock and constantly updated with the latest upcoming betting events and odds.
