Any novice blackjack players out there with an iPhone? You will be glad to know that recently an application was launched for the iPhone that helps teach blackjack to you on the go.
The application can also be used on an iPod or one of those new iPads. The only thing required of any of these Apple machines is that they have touch screen capabilities. For interested iPhone, iPod and iPad users the application can be found in the Apple Apps Store for $0.99.
With this new application users can be taught two different types of blackjack: Vegas Strip Blackjack and Atlantic City Blackjack, which is, for the most part, standard blackjack. The only difference in these two variations is that the dealer checks for blackjack before plays make their plays in Vegas Strip Blackjack.
In addition to having both blackjack variations to train with the application will also have blackjack strategy available—basic strategy I’m assuming since most training programs work with that blackjack strategy—as well as tables to help novice players learn the ins and outs of the game.
While working in the application, players utilize the touch screen feature of their iPhone, iPod or iPad to work within the application. Finger movements are said to resemble those used in a real game of blackjack. For example, if you were playing blackjack at a table in a casino and wished to stand, players would wave their palm over the table. In this blackjack training application, players simply slide their finger across the screen in a similar motion. They also push their chips around with their finger.
One of the good aspects of this training application is that, touch screen interface aside, it readies players for playing online. This is because players are taught in a single player versus electronic dealer rather than taught with other players around and a real dealer. This will allow those who train with application to make a smooth transition to playing blackjack online—which they are capable of doing with their Apple devices.
This makes it easy to learn how to play blackjack for those who are constantly on the go.
