eXtreme Gammon Mobile For iOS
The creator of the most powerful backgammon learning program ExtremeGammon 2 for PC - Xavier – has created a portable version of eXtreme Gammon called eXtreme Gammon Mobile. So far it is only available for iOS devices but it is soon expected to come to the Google Play store for Android.
The program has both a free and a paid version. The free version is downloaded from the App Store and has the most basic features. The paid version is bought In-App and allows for games to be saved, allows more game options and offers the opportunity to play online versus other backgammon players having XG Mobile.
The learning opportunity offered by XG Mobile are great. It is always good for your profitability to improve your backgammon game. However why do it when sitting in front of a PC. What better than playing a quick game versus the powerful engine of eXtreme Gammon Mobile on the go and learning from mistakes that you make.
We think that XG Mobile is one of the first steps to bring online backgammon for real money on your favourite smartphone or tablet. We have already seen different poker operators offering such mobile apps of their platforms. Backgammon is however much more suitable for a mobile device than poker. You always play versus one opponent which makes it perfect for a small screen of a smartphone, no tracking software is used as in online poker, touch based controls are great for backgammon.
Some backgammon room has to start offering their backgammon platform for mobile devices.
