There are a number of poker rooms around the internet that players can access from their iPhone or iPod, but unfortunately it is not always as straightforward as it sounds. Since both devices are locked to only run Mac products and applications, users will often struggle to run any PC based webpage that uses Flash or Java to generate the poker room graphics. Below we will answer some of the recent questions we’ve received about the best iPhone poker sites and how to play iPhone poker for real money.

Can I play poker for real money immediately with my iPhone?

Probably not, because the only iPhone users that can play poker for real money are the ones who have set up a few additional features. The easiest way to check would be to go to two websites, Absolute Poker and Sportsbook Poker, to see if the application loads on either page. Sportsbook runs off of Flash while Absolute uses Java.

Why does Apple not let us use Flash or Java?

Apple blocks Java and Flash installations on the iPhone in order to make more money. Most of the apps that you can buy for 99¢-$24.99 can be found on the internet for free, and to make a long story short Apple would rather force you to pay them money instead of having access to free stuff.

Is it legal for me to modify my iPhone so it works with Flash/Java?

It’s your phone, which means that you can do whatever you want with it. Apple certainly does not want you to have this type of freedom though, and some modifications may void your warranty.

What if I can’t get the poker rooms to load with my iPhone?

If neither room will load correctly, then there are a number of options to choose from that will take you five to ten minutes to install. Users can hack their iPhones so that they can use Windows apps (like Flash), activate the full version of Java, install a remote desktop method, or they can install Windows directly on their iPhones.

Which method is the best?

That really depends on your experience level when it comes to working with computers. For most users, the remote desktop method is definitely the easiest/safest route. Activating Java requires you to go through several functions within the phone itself, while installing Windows or using a jailbreak method takes a little bit more know-how.

Honestly though, the best method would be the one that allows for you to use your iPhone for all of your computer needs, not just playing online poker. For that reason alone, we would recommend the remote server method for inexperienced computer users or the jailbreak or Windows installation for more advanced users.

How would I connect to my home computer from my iPhone?

It’s pretty easy; all you’ll need is one of the many apps that are available in the iPhone store that allow you to connect to a remote desktop. From there, you’ll need to set up your home computer system to receive an incoming connection and you’re ready to go. Basically this method uses your home computer’s programs and computing power to bypass the iPhone limitations, and you’ll be able to do anything you wish on your smartphone from that point on.

What about installing Windows?

Users can install a version of Windows on their iPhones by connecting it to their computer and allowing it to access it like it was a backup hard drive. From there, you can format a partition and install Windows 95/98, Millennium, or XP. After the process is complete, unplug your iPhone and you’ll have Windows access to download programs like Internet Explorer, Flash, and Java. Then you could play either Absolute or Sportsbook Poker without any other apps.

How can I install Java or jailbreak my iPhone?

Honestly, if either of these methods is of interest you, the easiest thing to do would be to head into town and find a local computer repair shop to complete these processes for you. The last thing we would want for you to do is follow a long checklist of steps only to see that you missed one minor detail and wiped your iPhone completely, and that’s a very real possibility.

The best iPhone poker sites can be reached through much easier methods anyway, and Adobe thinks that they are really close to having a Flash module ready for the iPhone. Once that app launches, none of these steps will be required anymore.
