This is by far the BEST app there is out there!!! I love the chatting thing and play with ur poker buddies!!! I am sooo addicted to this game!! It crashed sometimes but like once a week for me. I don't really care if it does though . :) out of all the apps out there, this is gonna have to be this best one!!! Woot woot !!!! :-) thank u so much for making this game!!! I reccommed it to everyone!!! Best one out there!!!

Im not gonna bring the rating down but 2 things need to happen!!!
1st-I can't even join with any of my real friends I sent out invites and at least 3 people I know have since downloaded this crap and we can't even play together. And where's my 1000$ each... Fix this!!!
2nd- the freakin app crashes at least once every 5 minutes. Thank you for autosaving our money that makes up for number 2 but try and work it out k!
The game minus the 2 problems is definately a 5 star game, all the kiddies whining about their precious myspace brought the rating down but it's the best free game yet.

I love this!! great to kill time.. chat and play at the same time.. mite be a little buggy here and there but overall its great. If the buginess could be fixed, make it a little more smoother. this would be an obsolete package!. fun to compete and try to get more chips and make it to the top! PROS: great for poker lovers, chat and play to compete and kill time. CONS: Buggines, especially when you have a winning hand, it lags for me everytime i have a winning hand. sometimes i think it freezes. one time it froze, and i never got to see what the other person won me with.. (i had a pair of K's, so i thought my chances were good in winning) but it froze, and i lost the hand, never got to see who won. PLEASE FIX THAT PROBLEM!!! thanks!
Great App... lots of fun!
By: USA-Scott - Apr 12, 2009
This Hold-em Poker App is awesome, very fun with a great interface. I like that players can not reload their chips more than once a day without paying... that makes people play a little more carefully instead of just going all-in all the time and then just getting more chips 5 minutes later. Over 6 months ago, when I originally reviewed this app, I said that it had a lot of problems with crashing all the time. Fortunately, the updates made since that time have greatly improved the stability of the app and I now think it deserves a 5 star rating.

Best players poker app on iPhone by far!! Missing a LOT of online play features and sometimes throws you out of games during hands! I was 800k in once with a full house!!!!! Also had 22.1 million chips stolen from my account; so far waiting to hear what Zynga are doing about it. I have found out as well it happens A LOT!!! At £15 for 500,000 chips that's £660 real money!! Will update as to what Zynga do about it
Somethings up. Possible cheaters
By: Frosty8167 - Nov 25, 2009
Somehow people are winning hands that do not have the best cards. I got taken twice in one game by this guy who had two pair when I had a full house. This was not the only time I have seen this. Something is not right. I don't know if it is a computer error or someone is cheating There has been talk in the chat area that there are cheaters that can see your hand. I don't know if it's true but it is taking the fun out of playing on this site. Few issues I experienced are:Locks up a lot and you lose bets. Cannot erase poker buddies off your listCannot look for friends. Has option to send invite to friend but it does not work for me. Having hard time adding a few people to buddy list. Finally found wife on line and could not add her to buddy list. A lot of idiots on line that just bet everything they have before the flop. They really don't want to play poker. They just want to go all in.
Avatar us dead on!
By: Jdmoomba - Nov 23, 2009
This game is, in so many ways the best app I've downloaded by far. However, there us definately so opportunity left in many areas. Avatar hits the nail on the head in his review with current problematic system issues. I look forward to an update soon to adress these issues. Furthermore, this is the first review I've written for any of many apps I've downloaded, and the main thing that drove me to write it is my most recent experience while playing ( I had quad queens and $14,000.00 on the table that would have been all mine if the random fold hadn't reared it's ugly head yet again ) please fix these problems and I'll be more than happy to pay for this app if neccessary!
Awesome app! Hard to understand at 1st.
By: xxKikoxx2011 - Jan 14, 2009
I've played poker a lot before but not like this, never tried Texas hold'em though so it must be like that, so it took awhile trying to figure out that your 2 cards are suppose to replace 2 of the cards in the hand in the playing field to make a good hand. Once I found that out, this app was a lot of fun! Got pretty lucky 1 time and won quite a bit of chips.
When I linked my facebook account after a month playing this, my chips were lost, then came back the next day. I was ticked :(. You guys have some chip managing/transfering problems to fix or I may not get the deluxe version. Fun app though ^_^
Very nice, but crashes from time to time.
By: Nervulus - Nov 19, 2008
Like others have probably mentioned, this is an outstanding game. However, from time to time, I'll be in the middle of a hand and the poker room becomes motionless and my player will be highlighted for an extended period of time without anybody's move displayed. Then, if I try to quit, it'll tell me that the server can not place me in a room for several minutes.
Other than that, excellent game!
A few problems
By: Naor ben - Aug 19, 2009
1-When I go to choose a table I have to have the maximum you should make it the minumum instead.
2-When i choose tables it would be nice to choose a table and then a list comes up and you choose how many player are in the table.
3-In play now when you clicked it it puts the amount of chips by its self i dont like that.
4-You should have a stand button.
5-you should be able to sent people 6-6-money from the iphone too i want to send 100k to a friend i cant.
7-I want to buy the whole table a drink or gift or something i cant.
8-you should make it that you could go into empty tables too.
9-last problem is i have an ipod touch and i tried logging into my facebook poker and it didnt work i tried my friends it didnt work the guy i bought it from used he,s and thats why mine didnt work you fix this to.
By: Friskle - 17-Feb-2009
Whether it should be on iPod touch Is irrelevant to the review, your comment hardly reflect on the app itself at all.
To any others having crashes, had this for a while now, and enjoy trouble free games every night, in all the time i have had this app, its crashed once, my god anything can go wrong at some point beit whatever it is.
Anyway i feel this is a great app, and had lots of enjoyment from it.
By: C-Dash - Dec 15, 2008
This is my first review EVER! I decided to do it for this app because I love it, but want it be better. The app itself is awsome! Great visuals, but I have a problem with the game play. It freezes in the middle of big hands, and for some reason I can't stay connected to the game when using wifi, after an hour or so it disconnects every time. I have to turn it off and use 3G. PLEASE look into these problems. I would play this app for hours and hours if it wasn't so fustrating at times. Besides these problems this app should get 5 stars, but since it has a couple of bugs to work out I give it 4. Thanks!
Love it but has serious problems
By: marie6240 - Feb 15, 2009
Me and my husband live this app we are big poker people. But it crashes a lot it folds hands out of nowhere the latest problem I have is that I got a message that said it was going to reboot in 3 min. It did a count down and then it took me back to iPhone home now it won't let me log in it tells me to try later
Love it but please fix the bugs
Ps. We only get the option to buy drinks nothing else not food or fun and we have over 100 k
Fix this damn app please
By: Scvfdsmith - Mar 21, 2009
This app was the best till it starts to damn freeze when u have the best hand and when u go all in worth $4 k or more and then the app will just freeze and 30 sec later u all a sudden freeze WTF I just lost a sh*t load of money. This app needs to be fix before u lose players because they will start to get pissed off just like me. In about a mounth I lost over $20 k because it damn freeze or folds me
By: KalEl2080 - Nov 18, 2008
The game is fun. The App is cool. However I don't approve of not being able to get, for free and without a waiting period of a day, more chips are I run out.
Also, the only time the App crashes on me is when Im trying to invite people. After a few seconds looking through the list, the App crashes and it becomes discouraging. I hope this is fixed soon.
There are some $h!t players out there that go All-in on every hand even if they don't have a good hand. This is poker, strategy is involved and if the game is over Pre-Flop every time, on every hand, then it's no longer fun or thought provoking for that matter. Yes I leave the room but when I enter another room, there's another Fargin Icehole playing like a dumb sum-ma-na-botchin' bastage...:D

Great app it's better on the computer wish u could join tournaments though and it won't let u join the weekly tourney the find ur friend thing is messed up though but deffinitely addicting and worth downloading. But when your buying drinks don't click on the corner check box or it crashes that is the only time it has ever crashed also foe all the people that say it folds hands for u have a time limit so u can't hold up the game and if u don't do anything before the time is up it fold automatically and the time limit is. Only about 30 seconds so If u take for ever to select the amount u want to raise then it folds automatically and don't waste ur money on the 40k or stuff like thator on other poker apps this is the best to play on the computer go to zynga.com and click on play with myspace facebook etc. Then make a poker account and bblam but this is a must have app
I love It!
By: dragonsla - Nov 28, 2008
This is a first for me. I haven't reviewed an app before but I believe this one deserves it.
It's simple, it feels right, and it's free what more could you ask. Once and awhile while at a friends house or somewhere else I'll pull out my touch and This ist the first game I go for. It may be to simple for some but it works fine and it allows you to rank up and get better.
Just give it a try. It might ask for your phone number but I haven't gotten any weird calls so who cares?
By: Thaiboy4u2grab - Nov 28, 2008
Great app! Only complaint is that it looses connection once in a while.
Also there should be an "are you sure" screen when you hit the back to menu button.. Many times my finger just happened to brush the screen and then I'm back to the menu with no warning.
Finally how about an option to disable the auto lock feature.. Many times the phone locks when waiting for everyone to place bets. That's usually the time when I loose connection
Amazing poker app!!!
By: Cottanator - Oct 15, 2009
Vey good app! Realistic abd life like and its by far the best poker game on the itouch/iphone. You will find that nothing else can come close. Than you SO MUCH for the free 1000 chip give away each day! That is simply brilliant. I had to stop as i approached my last 20$ but then comes the giveaway and now i play this game alot. It has really restored my faith in you guys at zynga. Keep up the prizes!
persistent issues on itouch
By: Dr N Zyme - Nov 27, 2008
i love that the the only gifts available to give the table are alcoholic drinks. i was playing with a 13 year-old one night and she was sipping on a pina colada!
other than that, the game is buggy as hell. if you don't get a server error and have to restart your iphone/itouch, then when you sit at the table players names will be mixed up.
chatting does not always work correctly and the magnifying glass is blacked out when trying to reposition the cursor.
entering a $4000 (or any room for that matter) does not always enter you with the correct number of chips. sometimes just 40 or 80 bux.
