    World Poker Club – Play Free Poker Games

    by CP Decision Limited

    The World Poker Club app is a good, not great, choice for iPhone poker. It has a simple game mode, and you can search for a table based on price. However, the app requires the user to sift through ads and opportunities to buy more chips. Most apps have this, but on World Poker Club it seems to be more prominent and more of a problem.

    Live Holdem Poker Pro by Dragonplay, Texas Hold’em Style

    by Appchi Media Ltd

    The good part about this app is that it has a fair number of game modes. The bad part is the ads, and the app has lots of them. Live Holdem looks good, and plays well enough, but isn't the top choice for Texas Hold 'em.

    Poker™

    by Shark Party

    This app is simple, but perhaps a little too simple. There is a small range of games to play, and the playing itself is good. This is a very basic app, so if you're looking for simplicity, then this app would be the best for you. For more serious players, it falls a little short.
