Popular Social Poker App, Poker Friends, Stacks Up Half a Million Downloads
One thing Poker Friends has done differently is allowing the setting up custom time limits for games, thereby giving groups the option to play together live or in turns, using push notifications.
"We see this as a very optimistic first milestone," said the company's Chief Executive Officer, Gilad Almog. "We've still got a long way to go, but the market's initial acceptance of the game has been remarkable. It seems a lot of poker players, including a surprising amount of pros, prefer the dynamics of playing with people they know, rather than joining random tables with random people."
