What's the best horse racing app for betting tips?
I like to have the occasional flutter on the ponies but unfortunately I often don't have enough time to study the form so I'm looking for any decent Android horse racing tips apps.
I'm sure there are loads out there but can anyone point me towards a tips app that gives consistently good tips and has actually made some them some money?
Obviously I'm not expecting to win every race but I would like things to swing just marginally in my favour.
Personally I use the Stan James Daily Naps & Tips section. They take all the Bets of the Day from The Sun, The Racing Post, The Mirror, The Star, The Times, The Guardian, The Express, The Telegraph and The Mail and put them all on one page of their site every day. If the same horse name comes up on more than 3 or 4 of them you know you're in with a good chance.
To view the bets of the day area just visit the Stan James website scroll down the page until you come to the "Services" area on the left hand side. You should see the "Daily Naps & Tips" section there.
I occasionally have a flutter on horse racing in the United States. Ideally I prefer to do my own research and study the form, but if I need to pick a horse quickly and I don't have the form at hand I just use an an app called One Click Pony that uses computer data from renowned tipster Liam Durbin who also regularly contributes to The Baltimore Sun, ESPN, the Chicago Tribune and the LA Times.
Basically all you need to do is choose from any of the 40+ U.S. racetracks featured and the app will appear for that track. The latest version of the Android app covers these North American racecourses.
Churchill Downs, Belmont Park, Mountaineer, Del Mar, Hollywood Park, Santa Anita, Laurel Park, Aqueduct, Saratoga, Ellis Park, Keeneland, Turfway Park, Arlington Park, Hawthorne,Gulfstream Park, Pimlico, Colonial Downs, Fairplex, Louisiana Downs, Fair Grounds, Calder Race Course, Monmouth Park, Meadowlands, Los Alomitos, Woodbine, Oaklawn, Philadelphia Park, Evangeline Downs and Delta Downs.
I probably didn't explain how it works very well so here is a video demonstration that might do a better job...

If you're into the ponies then you gotta download the free Racing Post app for androids. The app features the "Racing Post Predictor" which uses data they have collaborated to predict the outcome of every single horse race in both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
The app also features tips from their own successful tipster, Diomed. Then this is a must have app for everyone who likes the occasional flutter.
OLBG have released a really nice tipping app for the iPhone. Hopefully they'll get around to releasing an Android version before the Cheltenham Festival. It also offers tips for loads of other sports.
I really love this Racing UK app for betting tips https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.activity
It's a free app that offers news and form guides as well as horse racing tips from their own experts. I've always found their tips to be a little more on the money than those offered by the racing post or any other tips apps i've used.
Horse Race Tips Apps
You didn't mention what race tracks, so I'm assuming any track is fine with you. Taking that into account, I know of some free horse racing apps that are offer free tips every race day for these tracks .. Lone Star Park - Belmont - Kentucky Derby - Preakness - Del Mar and Saratoga. You should be able to find them by searching google play by placing the word tips after all the track names. Example: Saratoga Tips. If you have trouble finding them, let me know and I'll find the URL for you.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a decent iOS or Android horse race tipping app with more of a USA focus? Most of those other apps are great but they tend to mainly feature racecourses in the UK and Ireland.
I've never found a good tipping app for US races. Equibase is a top quality app iOS/Android app if you need info on entries and stats on thoroughbred racing in the USA but it doesn't offer any betting tips, which is a shame.
