Betfair App vs Betfair Mobile Site
The Betfair app and Betfair mobile site allow the same log in to be used across the desktop, app and mobile version of Betfair, so customers only need to register an account once. The mobile version of Betfair has some additional features to the app, including access to a comprehensive FAQs section.
The app has more quick links to different sports across the top of the page, while the mobile site is more focused on directing customers to the most popular upcoming events available to wager on. The same betting markets are available at both the app and mobile site, but the method of access to them differs between the two. Both offer the same functionality in terms of in-play markets and being able to watch live streams. However, when it comes to using the Betfair Exchange, app users are redirected out of the app to the mobile site in order to access it. There is a separate Betfair Exchange app available, should users wish to download it.
