SupaBets Mobile App in 2022 [Mobile App Review]

On the mobile version of supabets, you will find all the features of the website version. So you can bet wherever you want and whenever you want, on your favourite sports whether live or on upcoming matches. You can make deposits or withdraw and watch video broadcasts too. The cash-out option is also still available.

Supabets Mobile Website

The mobile version of supabets is accessible via an responsive web-app that is also working for the desktop version of supabets under the URL’s https://www.supabets.co.za/, https://www.supabets.co.gh/ and https://www.supabets.co.zw/. Apart from that, supabets also employs their old mobile version in South Africa, which can be reached under the URL https://mobile.supabets.co.za/Home.aspx.

Due to the narrower screen of a mobile phone, the excess of information can make you feel a little lost at first but when you get used to it the navigation makes sense and important menu/items are accessible quickly. The drawback with that is, that the navigation takes too much of the available space of the display.

The organisation of the site is is divided as follows: 

  • On the top: a banner with a green “login” button and the different menus and a quick-navigation. You can choose the kind sport, but also decide to switch to the “games/casino” section, “book-a-bet” or the “results/stats” sections by using the textbased quicklinks at the very top. Additionally you’ll find a “hamburger icon” which allows you to access the different sections also from that point.
  • At the bottom: A “home” icon allows you to go directly back to the home page at any time. Next to it you’ll find icons for “inplay”, “lotto”, “live chat”, “bets/cash out” and “betting slip”.
  • In the middle: here you can see the upcoming matches and their odds, filtered by “top leagues”, “last minute” or by “country”. Via dropdown you can even filter for the betting market of interest.

The mobile version is therefore very useful to continue betting when travelling or to be the most reactive during your favourite events but it does not quite replace the web version even (or because) if it has all the features. This is in our experience also the main drawback of this version as everything from the web-version is stuffed into mobile, which makes it feel a bit crowded. All navigation elements in the top and footer together seize approximately one half of the available display-size and the actual content (being the betting offer – the events, odds etc.) is just using the rest of the remaining space .

So summarized, the usability of the mobile version is not as good as the usability of the desktop version.

SupaBets Native App

There is only one Supabets mobile application and it is dedicated to the Andrоid system.

To get this mobile application you will have to download an APK file and follow the instructions detailed on the web page https://support.supabets.co.za/data-free-app/

Supabets does not have a dedicated mobile application for iOS systems, but iPhone users can use the mobile web-version instead.

The native app of supabets has the same design as the mobile version. The only difference is, that as it is free of browser perimeter blocks (URL, …), the app is then more convenient and allows quite the same immersive live experience as the web version.

On the app, a good feature that can still be noted is the “switch to Lite navigation mode”. This mode reduces the quality of the design but allows to gain a little bit of connection speed.  It is therefore a good advantage for bettors who have battery or Internet problems or who bet live and are very dependent on speed and reactiveness.

The version of the native application is also still not independent enough. If a player clicks on f.e. the “Promotions” link, he will be redirected to the basic version of the mobile site.

Summary

The supabets native mobile application offers very little more than the mobile web-version. It needs to be further developed as a standalone-product and many of the bugs that exist need to be fixed to make the experience as good as the one offered by the website. The speed and loading times of both mobile versions can convince, the usability still offers room for improvement by using modern mobile navigation und usability instruments to use the available spaces on mobile in a – out of user perspective – most effective way.
