As I understand it, BetFair has one iPhone App for the British bettors (only).

And they&#8217-ve just released a new one (BetFair Rattle), also only for the UK Apple App Store.



BETFAIR, the world&#8217-s biggest online sports betting company, has released a nifty new application for football fans to compete against each other in order to make their club the most supported on the iPhone.

The &#8216-app-tly&#8217- named Betfair Rattle provides a quick and easy interface for fans to check fixtures and then turn their phone into a rattle with which to back their side. Support for a particular team increases according to how much fans shake their phones before the match kicks-off.

In time, Betfair hopes to release a Betfair Rattle league table, so if you&#8217-re sitting bottom of the Premier League and have lost 10 in a row your team can still get three points at the weekend if you get your rattle out. For instance, Portsmouth fans will be glad to know they got three points at Anfield last night, even if they don&#8217-t have the bragging rights in real life.

Betfair&#8217-s Mobile Manager Richard Hewitt said: &#8220-First and foremost we wanted to create something where fans compete against each other to show support for their teams, but we also wanted to provide something that was genuinely useful by making sure it was the most simple way of checking upcoming fixtures on the iPhone.

&#8220-So many apps are slow and clunky when all a user wants is the information there and then, and that&#8217-s what this app provides.

&#8220-Above all else though, it&#8217-s a bit of fun and we hope football fans across the country will be seen shaking their iPhones at stadiums around the country come 2:55pm every Saturday.&#8221-
