Melbourne Cup day, what apps are out there?

Ok, it’s the race that stops the nation, at 3pm today a lot of people will tune in to the Emirates Melbourne Cup to watch 24 horses run 3200m. It’s also the one day of the year that some Australians put a bet on a horse race; well, it’s the only time I do.

I’ve checked around the betting sites to see what’s available as I’m pretty sure the Android Market doesn’t allow betting apps, so for all these Android Apps you’ll need to enable the ability to install from Unknown Sources (Settings > Applications > Unknown Sources) on your device.

Sporting Bet : Download Page
Sports Bet : Download Page
TAB : Download Page
Luxbet : Download Page

In the market there is one result I could find which was a results app:
Australian Race Results : Market Link

So always remember Ausdroid supports responsible gambling. If you need help perhaps contact Lifeline or a gambling support service – they’re easily found via Google or White Pages. But above all enjoy your day, especially the lucky Victorians who get today off as a Public Holiday. Who is your tip for the cup?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
