    I've finally decided to give one of the betting exchange apps a go but I'm note sure which one to use. The only two I'm aware of are Betfair and Betdaq. Which one of these have the best iPhone app? Is there another iPhone betting exchange app I should be using instead?

    I'd stick with Betfair because they are by far the biggest and as a result have the most liquidity. You will always find loads of punters both backing and laying at Betfair.

    If you're planning to mainly bet on horse racing or football then you should be fine with the Betdaq app but if you're planning to gamble on smaller less popular sports like hockey, baseball or Irish GAA then you may run into liquidity problems using the Betdaq app.

    For iOS I think Betfair is the clear winner because they've also developed a dedicated app for the iPad. When I'm at home I use the Betfair iPad app and when I'm out I use the Betfair iPhone app.

    The Betdaq iPhone app works OK but the iPad version is identical and just expanded to fit on the larger screen.

    If you don't have an iPad then I don't think there is much between the two betting exchange apps.

    Betfair recently posted some very good yearly results thanks to their mobile betting exchange apps. Betfair have been investing hugely in mobile betting over the past couple of years and that has now begun to pay dividends. The number of bets placed from mobile devices such as the iphone and ipad jumped by 121% over the year to £45 million. As a result the revenue derived from mobile gambling almost doubled to £23 million.

    Based on these growth figures which have been driven by iOS and Android apps, you would have to say that mobile gamblers appear to favour Betfair over Betdaq.

    I refuse to use Betfair on either my iPhone or MacBook because of their Premiums charge which I feel is very unfair.

    Read a very interesting article over the weekend about how Ladbrokes were in talks with Betdaq's owner Dermot Desmond. Apparently Ladbrokes are anxious to get access to some of Betdaq's betting exchange technology in order to improve their poor online and mobile sports betting performance.

    personally i prefer betdaq because their app allows you to use both fractional or decimal odds if you prefer. betfair only use decimal odds.
