Types of betting apps available to Australians
With mobile communication and browsing definitely the future and the now, Australian sports betting companies are spending plenty of money upgrading their apps. Most of Australia’s biggest online betting shops have got both Android and Apple apps available for their customers, while they ALL have websites accessible and responsive via mobile.
The three types of betting apps Australians can access via their handsets are:
Samsung, Google, Sony and Pixel are just some of the brand names that run off the Android operating system. The best thing about Android apps is that they are downloadable from the Google Play store, plus they can be downloaded directly from the sources as well — you just need to have turned on non-market apps. Basically Android users have significantly more freedom than Apple users.
iOS is the operating system that powers Apple phones, and while there has been some knockoff phones on the market, we are purely talking about Apple phones on this page. The difference between Apple and Android betting apps, is that the iOS apps can only be downloaded from the Apple store — and are not available directly from the sources. Basically if you don’t have an Apple account and iPhone or iPad you won’t be able to download Australian betting apps.
Are you a regular bettor but don’t have a Android or iOS phone, but you do have a smartphone? Your answer is to create a web app, which is essentially just a shortcut on the desktop of your device’s homepage, which allows you to load the chosen bookie’s mobile website, basically instantly.
Live streaming via AU betting apps
One of the biggest drawcard’s of using betting apps over the desktop websites of Australian bookmakers, is that you can live stream many of the biggest sporting events live over you handset. Some of the key sports covered by Australian bookies via their apps include:
- Ladbrokes and the NBA:
Do you want to watch the no.1 league in the USA? Sportsbet allows you to watch every NBA game live and free, as long as you have an account, that has been funded recently.
- Sportsbet and horse racing:
The fact Sportsbet has got every Australian horse race (courtesy of their vision deal with Sky Racing) make them a must-have for any racing fan.
- Bet365, tennis and football:
If you’re looking for a bookie that has got tennis and soccer covered extensively, the self-proclaimed world’s biggest bookie covers most international tennis tournaments with streaming; while many major football leagues, including the EPL are also covered.

Mobile betting sites vs Australian betting apps
In many countries sports betting apps are not available, however Australian betting apps are perfectly legal and the no.1 way bets are placed. We often gets asked what is the difference between downloadable betting apps and mobile betting sites, and we can honestly say it’s not much. The key differences between Australian betting apps and mobile bookmakers are:
- Betting apps are more convenient: This is true in many cases, the convenience and quick loading nature of sports betting apps can be a great reason to download one.
- Betting apps have tracking: This is also true and the same thing could apply to all commercial smartphone apps you might download. Unfortunately it’s the world we live in and a consequence that doesn’t really worry us.
- Australian betting apps have extra features: This is also true, some companies have features like dynamic odds that only work when using their betting apps, rather than mobile website. Other features could be instant access to football tipping competitions or tournaments
- Push notifications: Things like black books have become next level with the advent of horse betting apps, while the same could be said of sports wagering. Push notifications from sports betting apps allow you to find out instantly when something happens that could impact your bet or a runner you have marked is racing.
