    Is it possible to get a real Full Tilt Poker or PokerStars app on Droid? would be pretty sweet to be able to play when I had a free minute or two.

    I wonder if there is something preventing the big sites from making an app. Legal issues and stuff like that. If you could make one for them you would be rich rich rich!

    Honestly tho, it would be a good idea as Android is open source and "gambling" would not be filtered. I have been thinking about this before.

    They need to do it in such a way where you are not allowed to withdraw or transfer money.

    Maybe deposit through Google Checkout or Paypal and that is IT.

    And it could open many doors for Android development (HUDs, Sharkscope/OPR)

    LOL if FTP was on Android, I would be playing tournaments 24/7.

    There is a Cake app for WinMo, and maybe a UB app so it's def possible. Paypal will never work for depositing, possibly GCO though. I would nearly kill for a FTP or PS app though. Hopefully they "legalize" it in November and we should most def see some apps coming out.

    I thought maybe if we werent able to transfer money on our accounts BUT still be able to play games with our account money it would work. I play Red Club Poker on my DInc and its fun but you cant play serious in a play money game. I would be in for a dumbed down version of either site, maybe i'll try contacting FTP or PS.

    I'd love to see one of the big sites publish an Android app!

    It's not something we could really write, because you'd have to know their security protocols. However you can VNC to your home computer -- make sure everything's encrypted, though!!

    but they have nothing to do with pokerstars, FTP or any of the big pker sites. They r just online casinos. Wouldnt trust them with my money.

    I had this related idea, but its vague at this point. But the idea is to make the app an interface to a online discount brokerage firm. Then your deposits are made to the brokerage, then the game play would be a slot machine, or a poker game where the odds were ultimately determined by the stock market. This way the app would feel just like illegal gambling but actually be legal gambling.

    BTW, playing poker online has never been illegal. It is in a very few select states, but that is it. The UIGEA never made it illegal. The government wanted people to think it was, but the fact is that it was never made illegal.

    I tried it out, and it does work pretty good. The problem is I can only play when I travel because FTP now blocks you from playing real money if you are in WA state. :mad:

    You can play real money poker on full tilts rush mobile, just requires an extra plugin. It's not available in the market yet, that I know of but can be downloaded directly from full tilt. Head over to my site droidhustler.com and click the tutorials link. I've compiled a walk-through. You dont need root access or any other bs you just download rush mobile and the plugin and play. You have to deposit via pc but you can play for real money on your Android phone. Glad I could contribute to the community. had I known so many people didn't know how id have made the tutorial and posted this earlier.

    I am pretty sure it is on the Market. At least that is where I got it.

    And yes, a phone which is Flash-enabled is required.

    I wanted this app for soooo long, too bad the same week they released the app they blocked Washington players from playing for real money at all.

    I would love to have any app that I could play for real money from Washington!

    I was playing PokerStars on my Samsung Galaxy Tab yesterday. Worked great.

    I have a mini-laptop which I leave switched on all the time for torrenting. I installed PokerStars app on it and a VNC server (my favourite one is UltraVNC).

    All I need to do is fire up the VNC client on my phone/tablet and connect to the mini laptop and fire up PS. The screen resolution of the laptop matches that of my tablet (coincidence) and it worked great. The check/raise/bet/fold buttons on PS are nice and big. Now that you can have pre-defined bet size buttons there too, that helped a lot. I have 50% of pot, 100% of pot and 200% of pot for after the flop, and 2x, 4x, 6, the big blind buttons for before the flop. It all works very well.

    Chatting doesn't work all that well. I usually have "ty" pre-entered into the send text feature of the VNC client so I can at least send that if someone says nice hand to me.

    Sucks for me.

    I don't think any of those sites can operate in the US.
