We’re re-defining what it means to play one-handed. Our new fastforward: special edition poker app features a patent pending swipe-based interface that adds another gear to playing fastforward poker. You swipe your cards to fold and swipe your chips to bet or call. You tap the table twice to check and the tap the bet bar once or use the slider to change the value of your bet. You play in vertical mode and can control all aspects of the game with one hand.
We hope you will find it as intuitive, practical and interactive as we do!

I have an iOS iPhone – how do I get my hands on the fastforward: special edition app?
The new app is the stallion in our stable of poker products. If you have an iOS iPhone and are eligible to play on our global partypoker.com site you could be among the first to take it for a real or play money BETA ride – granted that you accept that it is a BETA and like providing the type of feedback we need to iron out the kinks and decide which features to add next. See further down for feedback instructions.

How is this game different from the main partypoker app?
The fastforward: special edition game has been tailor-made for fastforward poker. It is an experiment in new technology – built in HTML5 – and a new approach to mobile poker interface design. We engineered it specifically for mobile handset users, after thinking about how we use these devices – or should use these devices – to play card games. The game is the same, but HOW you play is nothing at all like on other mobile poker games. A lot of creativity and new ideas went into designing the game user interface (the basis of the patents we have filed). While the main partypoker app also enables you to play fastforward games, we believe this special edition enhances the experience. The controls are more interactive and using just one hand is more practical.
What if want to play cash games and Sit & Go tournaments on my smartphone or tablet?

Go to partypoker.com on your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet and follow the instructions to download and install. If you’re reading this on a smartphone you can simply click on the banner at the top of the page or go to our fast forward poker app page!
