    As random as it is, I know the answer, so I registered to reply! (My Galaxy S arrives tomorrow, so I've been browsing for hints and tips early! :D)

    Anyway, https://iphone.betfair.com/#_home works with Android. It's what Betfair's helpdesk recommends. It's only a matter of time before an actual app appears, whether it be official or unofficial. They have an API, which developers can use to place bets using 3rd party apps, so someone's sure to have a crack at it.

    Hey,

    We've just released a new Betfair Native application in to the market place. It's listed as just 'Betfair' in the market. Have a look and let me know what you think :)

    I found Betfair do have an app available free of charge from the android marketplace.

    I d/l for my nexus and was really impressed.
    I can access my account, view open markets and watch the prices live and I can Back/Lay bets in real time.
    I can also view my bet history.

    The app was simple to use and I placed my first bet inside of a minute of log in.

    Vast improvent on previous homebrew apps, nice one BetFair.

    Most real-money gambling apps have been pulled from Android Market due to Google's new content policy; including the official Betfair app.

    However, there's an alternative to the official Betfair app called Betacular that is available for direct download from betacular.com

    Places like Betfair could always just offer a direct download.

    I used to love sports betting until it became a giant PITA to fund an account.

    You can reinstall the apk file on your new Galaxy but the app is no longer available in the Android Market. Google changed their policy regarding gambling apps and pulled all betting apps like the Betfair app.

    Is this app fairly new? The preview looks quiet neat but has someone given this a try yet? [​IMG]
