Carbon Poker has officially gone mobile after unveiling an app that allows United States residents to enjoy play money games through their iPhone and iPod Touch. The mobile poker application successfully finished its testing phase. – Carbon Poker
I recently found out about this app. for my iPhone and have been surprisingly happy with what I’ve found so far. It seems like the app. is quite responsive to the touch, and I am yet to be frustrated enough with anything to stop playing. As of right now you can only 1-table cash games (real or play money), but it looks like there are plans to have tournaments added later. If you are interested in this as an option to get some games in, it’s definitely worth it to me. I’m kind of glad they didn’t have this out back when I was in college, because I would have been playing at work, in class, or anywhere really! Below are some more comments from Carbon Poker in regards to this app. so if you are a Carbon player already, this could be a real cool option, and if you are not and interested in it please go here to create an account.
We would still really appreciate you get back to us with your feedback, be it positive or negative. We are really excited about the release of this mobile version, and are really looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Android users will experience temporary difficulties
Though Carbon Poker is meant to be accessible across all mobile platforms as it is essentially browser-based, for the time being it is not fully compatible with Android, users of which took to 2+2 to complain about problems they were experiencing trying to play via their devices.
A rep for Carbon responded in the forum, advising that the site has yet to be fully optimized for use on Android and that they are aware of the issues being reported by players and are working on them. For the time being, users of iPhones and iPads will have the best opportunity to play Carbon Poker via their mobile devices, as Carbon’s mobile client is only fully optimized for iOS5+ as yet.
And players from NY, KY, DC, MD, MI, WA, or LA will not be able to access the real-money mobile client at Carbon as the site does not accept customers for real-money play from those states. (via legaluspokersites)
