Card games can also be called as “Social Games” as they need a gathering to be playing with at least 4 people at one time. May be this is the reason that games like Poker are still one of the most loved card games ever and has garnered huge popularity over internet in online games. In fact, there are websites dedicated only to Poker and they attract huge traffic as well. I am myself a big fan of Poker and whenever I get time with my family, we don’t miss a single chance to try our hands on. Similar is the scenario in the App Store which is flooded with such games and now developers are taking out new stuff day by day to attract more of the users. We have a similar app for today. Let’s see what indifferent it brings to the table.


I am talking about the new iOS app, Zooma Poker that has been developed by Zooma apps. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or later version of the OS. Now, due to huge popularity of Poker, this app is a sure shot for the developers because there are so many Poker lovers that you can’t go through ignored. The app combines the social quotient with the usual game play. Let’ see how well the mixture tastes.


The most popular poker game is for no doubt Texas Hold’em Poker and that’s what this is. Start creating a new account and you will get 4,000 chips for free; that’s a good start. You can either start playing randomly or you may check out a table according to your requirements in the lobby. You can also enter a tournament or leave it anytime. Then the in-game rules are same as you can chat with other players, buy those gifts as well as chips, earn daily chips award and lots more. Don’t forget, if you run out of chips, you can always look out for the in-app purchases.


The social quotient of the app comes into play as you can check out the profiles of other members and if you’re interested in someone’s, you may start a personal conversation with him/her. You can also like their profiles, add them to your favorites and invite them for a match. You can also upload pictures to your profile and this way, the game becomes a whole new social website. The graphics of the app are glamorous and beautiful. The intuitive UI of the app enables you to easily set your Profile without much effort.


If we notice carefully, actually the developer has targeted two of the most popular elements in the present scenario: poker and social networking. I don’t have any complaints because if you can sustain all the benefits from both, then it’s obviously better from the individuals. But apart from these popular stunts, there is nothing innovative or original from the developer.

The app is available for free in the App Store. So, don’t forget to check it out now.

Pros: addictive gameplay; beautiful graphics; engaging social quotient; free.

Cons: nothing innovative or original.
