Texas Holdem PokerFerdinand Godspeed
Texas Holdem Poker is a nice little poker app with some good features like Sit-n-Go tournaments and a live chat feature. It's not going to blow you away, but the interface is nice and clean and there seem to be plenty of players online.
I guess if you can't name your poker app, then Poker will just have to do. The name is about as bland as the product, but you can play up to 50 hands a minute with its speed poker feature that was introduced online (Full Tilt Poker I believe was the first) before the poker sites were shut down to U.S. players. Best part is you don't need to register or connect to your Facebook account. Just pick up and play. It's a decent pick in our 10 best poker games list.
Pinup girls! Woohoo! Who cares if the game is dry and boring? You've got lovely pinup girls to stare at! Each new hand features a new pinup girl that would look great on the side of a World War II airplane or tattooed on your shoulder. If you dig the retro pinup look, give this 5-card draw game a try.
The sequel to the popular Sword & Poker features new dungeons, weapons and magic. All played out with poker hands! Try to make the best poker hands possible to damage your opponent and destroy him before he destroys you. It's a fun little RPG with some poker mixed in. They should mix poker into every genre, don't you think? Where's my poker zombie game?
Grab a buddy and duke it out with this puzzle twist on poker. Make the best poker hands possible on the board and try to outscore your opponent. You can even use the Jokers as wild cards. Play your friend, play a stranger or play the computer. It's a great pick-up-and play poker game.

Texas Poker is perhaps the busiest looking poker app in the App Store. But it also has a ton of things going for it like a speedy and simplistic interface, lots of players online and some great social media features. The only bad thing is you have to look at Carmen Electra's airbrushed old face. I'm sorry, but Carmen Electra in a poker app is pretty stupid. Maybe if they stuck a stripper pole on the table it would make sense. Hey, can you guys add that feature with some video?
