London, 28 June 2010: Blue Square today announces release of its Mobile Sportsbook optimised for iPad.
The Blue Square team used tools provided by long term mobile partner mkodo to build the iPad Sportsbook.
Simon Woolf, Rank Interactive's Head of Mobile Development, comments: 'Our team has worked well with the mkodo Portal Builder product to produce a version of Sportsbook optimised for iPad in a time and resource efficient manner. The extended screen size and functionality available to iPad users will greatly enhance their customer experience.'
mkodo's Mark Gibson adds, 'The Apple range of products has proven popular with Mobile Sportsbook users, accounting for over 50% of the gaming traffic we currently see through the mkodo platform. It makes good sense for Blue Square to extend its Sportsbook to the latest offering in this range.'
Rank Interactive's mobile gaming division has seen fantastic growth in the last year. Having the ability to provide optimised customer experiences for the latest
and the most popular mobile devices in a timely manner has been key to this success.
