William Hill recently launched an updated version of its Android app for customers that want to place bets on the go. The application allows Android users to access over 40,000 pre match, in-play and specialty markets from William Hill Online on a daily basis.

It means android users can now place bets and manage their William Hill Sportsbook & Racebook account via their Android cell phone.

William Hill and the Racing Post have also announced the launch of an Android version of their horse racing app. More than 200,000 punters have already downloaded the Racing Post/William Hill iPhone version and the partners are expecting strong results from their Android version too.

William Hill’s new Android app’s are free to download at mobile.williamhill.com and from download sites like www.getjar.com to everyone running Android 2.2 on their device.

-”Our new optimised Android app’s are big additions to our mobile offering”, said Michael Byrne, Head of Mobile at William Hill Online, “Some of our competitors have rushed to embrace iPhone, but have neglected the many customers who have embraced Android. This new app opens up our mobile sportsbook to a growing customer base and gives them a experience as good as any.”

-”Our recent product enhancements have driven strong growth over the last few months, and the response from our customer base has been very positive. In 2010, we experienced a 800% increase in bets, 828% increase in turnover, and a 900% rise in unique users.”
