Offline Poker Texas Holdem isn't very dynamic or loaded with features, but it does let you play some poker without interruptions. It's clearly made for people without strong data connections who therefore can't play some of the more popular, social poker games. Unfortunately, the app doesn't have much else going for it that makes it as enjoyable as those games.
This app lets you play one- or two-player Hold 'Em against a few computer opponents. There's no way to change the computer players' names, difficultly level, or avatars, so you're stuck playing the same "people" every round. There's no way to speed up the hands once you've folded, which means that game involves a lot of waiting if the hands aren't going your way. Two-player games let you tap to hide cards, but Offline Poker Texas Holdem doesn't automatically hide one hand when you expose another, which would make passing the phone to play a lot easier. Once you finish a game, you don't earn any bonuses or get to keep your bank for the next game like you might in other games. The game crashed twice during testing, which is odd because it isn't very intense when it comes to graphics.
As you might be able to tell, this app is defined by what it can't do far more than what it can. However, Offline Poker Texas Holdem is a good enough option if you have a restrictive data plan or you're stuck on slower data that can't load games with more features. It would be nice if it kept some of those features intact in this game, though.
