Mobile vs William Hill iPad App

William Hill iPad App

The first thing to note about the William Hill iPad app or mobile app is that technically, it isn’t an app, as both devices use browsers to access the site. That said, accessing the software is still very much like an app and the software does operate like an app and perhaps most importantly, there are distinct differences between using the site on an iPad and on a smartphone.

On a smartphone, the navigation and display is very simplistic and is text-based. There are limited graphics (chiefly to keep loading times down on lower-spec devices) and all the markets and other parts of the site, such as promotions (including William Hill’s £25 free bet offer for new customers), games, poker etc are all accessed through clicking through a number of text-based menus.

While functional, it is perhaps not the best way to place bets and as such, it is not as good as using touch screen technology as available on other smartphones and iPad devices.

On the William Hill iPad app, it is a different story. The menus are surrounded with graphics and offers and the latest Live In Play betting options. Everything is accessible with just one click of the touchscreen, from logging in, to placing a bet to altering your settings.

If there is one criticism of the iPad app, it is that even on a larger screen, it is rather cluttered and can be difficult to navigate at times. That said, having all the information on screen at once to view is also a bonus for many users.

The Verdict

This is a web app of the highest quality, with everything you could possibly wish for. Everything is laid out nicely, and is a breeze to use. It’s very difficult indeed to find fault in any area of the app. It runs quickly, and the images included are small enough not to affect the operation of the app even when in a bad signal area. There’s no on screen crowding and excessive scrolling required.

In particular, the horse racing betting section of the William Hill betting app is laid out in such a way that it’s easy to place a bet. The detailed race cards give you easy access to form and stats. You can also quickly go to the next race, meaning you can keep going if you’re on a roll.

One drawback however is that you cannot use the app to watch horse races live. Another would be the lack of a full results section, so you can’t check the results later.
