Poker Stars for the iPhone?

Can you play Poker Stars on an iPhone? The short answer is yes, but with some setup and a bit of effort. This is a proof of concept, using the VNC viewer to display the poker table on the phone. As you can see, I had a bit of trouble trying to change my raise amount, as the pointer didn't quite line up. The VNC buttons were in the way too, but the screen could be moved. With a little effort, it could work. This requires a computer setup and running the PS client before you can view it on the phone. Obviously, a native poker app would be best. Poker Stars, are you watching?

Hey buddy, this looks awesome. Im trying to learn as much as I can about programming in the Cocoa Touch format so I can begin programing for the Iphone. I really hope that Pokerstars makes an attempt at capturing this portion of the market. Unfortunately, it took poker stars forever to come out with a simple mac program of pokerstars, so I'm not expecting this development to come about anytime in the nearby future. Perhaps Fulltilt would be much more cooperative, since they were much faster at coming out with a mac version of their software. Great job man, keep it up, and good luck with any future projects.

you should use logmein rather than VNC, better, quicker, more simple de install....
