bet365 releases official app for Windows Phone
Following Ladbrokes, bet365 has released an official app for Windows Phone. The betting app enables those who frequently engage in gambling with the company to place slips and monitor progress while on the move. To help get everyone started on mobile hardware, bet365 is offering an exclusive bonus if you're new to the mobile realm of betting. Their Windows Phone app doesn't look too bad too.
Before everyone gets too excited, we're not looking at a native Windows Phone app, but one that's an early wrapper release, likely to determine just how much interest there is in the platform. That said, what are you able to do with the official bet365 app?

The app is pretty neat, though there are a few bugs that come with these kinds of apps (one being the back button can lock up and only take the user between two pages only). Still, it's great to see more official support, even if it's limited.
It's worth noting that this is a real gambling app and you're required to be 18 years old or above to create a bet365 account. A rather humorous note is how the app store listing boasts about "top sporting action streamed live to your iPhone and iPad".
