    It's shaping up the be a pretty big summer for the sports. First we have the UEFA Euro 2012 finals kicking off in Poland and the Ukraine at the beginning of June and then we have the London Olympics at the end of July.

    I'm looking forward to taking a few punts on both. Can anyone recommend the best sports betting apps for both of these events? Are any of them running specials for these events or offering larger than normal sign-up bonuses?

    Here is our opinion, the best sports betting app for Android will depend on whether you are based in the United States or now.


    • With Bet365 we love live streaming thousands of sporting events every year on our iPhone or Android, including the NBA Playoffs, soccer, football, tennis (Wimbledon/French Open), golf, baseball, hockey and more.
    • We watch every horse race from the UK and Ireland from our phone.
    • This is our favourite sports betting app.


    • Fully licensed and regulated in Canada so you're protected.
    • Accepts players from the United States of America.
    • Strong focus on U.S. sports and leagues, including the NFL, AFL, NBA, Kentucky Derby etc.
    • Easily the best mobile web apps available to U.S. sports bettors.
    • Compatible with a wide range of devices, including iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Nokia and Blackberry

    I'm a recent convert to the Bet365 app for Droids. I wasn't a fan of their old betting app but they completely overhauled it back in March and the new layout is excellent. The app is very responsive and you can place a bet in just a couple of clicks. They also offer a 100% initial mobile bonus which I'm still using 2 months on.

    I do take on the points made my Mackintosh regarding specials and promotions. They could make more of an effor to include the odd novely bet to make things a little more interesting.

    For me the Paddy Power app wins hands down. It looks a lot like other betting apps but what sets it apart for me is the betting specials and promotions they offer via the Android app. For instance here are a few of the specials they are running today...

    John Terry Chelsea v QPR - If John Terry is booked or sent off they will refund all losing bets

    Heineken Cup Semi - If the last score in tiehr Heineken Cup Semi Finals they will refund all losing tryscorer bets.

    Manchester UTD Vs Manchester City - If Wayne Rooney scores they will refund all losing 1st/last goalscorer, correct scores and scorecast singles.

    I have always been a sucker for these kind of bets online so to be able to get them on my phone now is pretty sweet.

    My vote goes to the Paddy Power app because you can access the football coupons from the app. I use the coupons to quickly create accumulators by just selecting who will Win/Lose/Draw from a group of related league or cup games. I don't think the other bookmaker apps use coupons.

    For most sports I tend to use the Bet365 bookmaker app although I sometimes use the PaddyPower app for horse racing because they stream races from Africa, Dubai and South America.

    the english premier league has just stared again. do any of these apps stream live games or even let me listen to commentary of live games?

    Yes, you can listen to most of the major English Premier League games featuring teams like Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal via the Audio Centre of the Bet365 app.

    I notice that the Bovada sportsbook app doesn't stream any live sports like the Bet365 one does? Do any of the U.S. bookies let you watch NBA or NFL games on your phone? They don't seem to show any U.S. horse racing either?

    Most of the bookmaker apps that cater for U.S. citizens are not as technologically advanced as those offered by the likes of William Hill or Ladbrokes so you won't be able to watch your favourite basketball or football team play live via their apps.

    The good news is you can watch live horse racing from the United States on any iOS or Android phone thanks to this free to download and use Horse Races Now app.

    Sky Bet have a great cash-out feature in their app. The cash out button appears just below the live streams of sports so you can take your money and run if the game isn't going your way.

    this seems to be the latest craze with mobile bookmakers. bet365, paddy power, betfair and ladbrokes are also offering cash-outs from their mobile sites. i think bookmaker have done the maths here and would only offer you a decent amount to close your bet if they think they're going to lose. i think you're always better off holding your nerve until the final whistle even if things are looking dicey.

    Do any of the Android bookies link with with wearable devices like the Samsung Galaxy Gear watch? It would be useful if I could receive updates on odds or notifications on the wearable.

    No, I think all the major bookmakers are only developing wearable betting apps for the Apple Watch at present.

    paddy power merged with betfair a few months ago. will the two brands stay completely separate or will the paddy power app soon have betting exchange features too?

    No. I think they are planning to keep the brands separate and just reduce the number of staff.

    The iOS versions of most bookmaker apps now allow you to login and bet using TouchID. Does the Android version of any sports betting apps support fingerprint recognition authorization?

    No. I think mobile sportsbooks so far have only activated fingerprint recognition logins on Apple Watch, iPad and iPhone.
