The popularity of online bingo has dramatically increased over the last couple of years. Some sites offer more in the way of chat rooms, bonuses and free play than others. As with most things, when it comes to online bingo, the site you play on is largely a matter of personal choice. Just like many computer games and high traffic websites such as eBay, most bingo sites now offer applications or apps for a variety of devices.

Mobile Apps
You don’t have to be part of the online community for long to recognise that most people now have several different mobile devices and want to take their favourite games with them. Whether you have an iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android tablet, it’s possible to obtain apps that will work across all of your devices.

Some people worry about the security of mobile apps but most bingo apps have the same level of security as their websites. As with so many things, some bingo sites are more popular than others and some people like some apps more than others.  However below are five of the best of the bingo apps available:

1. Paddy Power App
The Paddy Power app is fairly new and like most of the bingo sites Paddy Power offers a free bonus. You do need to open an account on their website to download the app and claim the £20 free bonus.

If you want to use the app on both your iPad or phone and an android device, you will need to download separate applications. The look of the app is clean and easy on the eye and users report that it is much less likely to crash than some of its competitor apps. The Paddy Power app is available here

2. Mecca Bingo App
Reviews for the Mecca Bingo app are very positive with many reviewers reporting it as the best around. As well as the Apple and android devices, the app can also be used on any Windows mobile and on Blackberry devices. As with most of the apps out there you will need to open an account at their website in order to claim the free £50 bonus. The app can be downloaded here.

3. Gala Bingo App
The Gala Bingo app is very popular and although the look of it isn’t bad per say, it doesn’t have the clarity of some other apps out there. Not all bingo sites mention that in order to receive their free bonus you need to first open an account at the site. Gala offers a £15 free bonus when you sign up. Download the app at this address.

4. William Hill App
There can’t be many people who haven’t heard of William Hill, even if it’s only in connection with betting shops. This app is amongst the better designed ones out there; it has a clean look and is easy to use. The £25 free bonus is available when you sign up for an account at the company’s website.

5. Britain’s Got Talent Bingo
Making bingo fun with a theme, this Britain’s Got Talent bingo app has to be the app of choice for any iPhone owning fan of the popular talent show.

As with many apps, you can do more than just play to win money; you can chat to friends online while you play too. Get the app here.
