This AfricaBet app tested by us is called a web app, which reproduces the complete betting programme of the website. Simplicity pays off here. You have to download or install nothing whatsoever for this mobile version, so you are not dependent on the Play Store, iTunes, another independent app store. Simply open the internet browser on your smartphone or iPhone – it runs on Android devices just as smoothly as on iOS – and click on the website of the provider. There are no optical differences to a native app; the AfricaBet homepage fully adapts automatically to the screen size of your mobile. Currently, we are not aware of any native app from AfricaBet. Native apps occasionally also have their quirks; more on that in the next paragraph. The app is fully compatible with common devices, as the below illustration shows.
Benefits of the AfricaBet app
The benefits of the AfricaBet web app are varied. Because neither download nor installation are necessary, you save storage space and also don’t need to start any unnecessary updates. You neither burden your data volume nor do you have to update your operating system, as is often necessary after updates of apps. Improvements to the website will be without delay shown for you in the web app. When downloading an apk file from a non-Google Play Store source anywhere from the web or app files from independent app stores, there is indeed the danger that you thus put damaging software on the mobile. Anyway you will hardly find them in the Play Store and iTunes App Store, because both rely on a partly very restrictive policy in terms of gaming apps. If you use the AfricaBet app for betting, you are not taking such a risk. Positive: Your sensitive user data is bestprotected from improper access thanks to a SSL128 encryption.
A native app also brings with it the disadvantage that alongside sports betting, the additional portfolio of the provider, which for many bookies includes virtual sports, casino, live casino, etc, is technically challenging to display. Such products – some casinos comprise over several 100 – need countless updates in a day, which in an app would annoy very quickly. The app would thus obviously be very large, so you would have to free up lots of memory space. So it’s better to use the web app.
