"Poker for noobs"

Poker Guide HD is an easy-to-use tutorial app for learning poker hands, rules and terms

How many times did you teach your friends how to play poker? How many times did you try it with your mom? Times of writing on paper sheet poker hand rank and stop the game to clear terms are gone. Sit newbies in a chair, launch the app and just say them: "take 5 minutes on reading this".

Poker Guide HD goes straight to the point. Three tabs, three features. First off, "poker hands", official poker hand rank in order from best to worst: royal flush, straight flus, four-of-a-kind... Second, basic "poker terms" in alphabetical order: all-in, small/big blind, sit&go, river, push, preflop... All that words that are constantly used on poker parties. Finally, "poker rules" in which you can choose between two poker styles (Texas Hold'em or Five Card Draw). Rules summarized in just a dozen of points, a handful of lines.

We're just missing a "advanced user" tab including strategies, bluffs, odds, percentages, variation... We hope it will be included in coming versions.

This could sound weird due to the simplicity of the app but this is one of the most useful apps we've reviewed. We like when apps make our life easier and Poker Guide HD really does.

    Really liked the app until I realized I can't read the bottom of any pages! Makes it unreadable and so I'll have to uninstall.
