Texas-Hold'em-icon.pngOne of the first games in the iPhone app store was one of Apple’s own, Texas Hold’em. At $5, Hold’em is the app that set the standard for iPhone poker games.

There are two views when using Texas Hold’em, landscape and portrait. The landscape view is triggered when turning the iPhone, or iPod touch, horizontally on its side and allows you to see the game from an aerial table view. The portrait, or vertical, view shows each player as a different animated character.

Players in the game can be computer-automated, or people on a WiFi network. Hold’em allows up to 9 players to connect via WiFi to play against each other. There are also many built-in gestures for various commands. Statistics can also be tracked within the app.

As a poker application, Texas Hold’em functions beautifully and is a nice game. While it’s slightly expensive, it’s worth it if you’re a poker fan. It is available for $4.99 in the app store.
