Gaming On The iPad

It's easy to see why the iPad has become the premium portable gaming platform. The range of hand held devices that can play games these days has skyrocketed. Everyone likes playing games on the move, it's that simple. Whether you're waiting for an appointment, travelling on the train or snatching a few minutes break during the work day; the sort of simple, pick-up-and-play style that is available on the iPad appeals to all. The prices are a surprise too. It is not uncommon to find that a game giving you up to twenty or thirty hours of game play could only cost you around 69p. Some of the top tier games also offer a free version that allows you to have the experience of the full game, but for a shorter amount of time. If you decide that you enjoy the game, you can usually upgrade it for less than a pound. This ability to try before you buy has made the app store one of the most popular online software marketplaces around. Whatever kind of game you want, you will be able to find it on the app store. Whether you want the casino experience in your own home, or a game that lets you learn how to play poker at your own pace, you'll find exactly what you want right there, and within minutes you could be playing the game of your choice. This has only improved with many sites now using HTML5 instead of flash allowing iPads to use them nativly and even play games in the browser. The level of detail available on the iPad is better than anything that was around even just ten years ago. The gaming world has come on a long way since the days of four colour screens and miniscule battery life. Now the entire spectrum of games is easy to get your hands on, and ready when you are. Wherever you are and whatever you do, there is a game that is perfect for you.
