The software is fine. The traffic, however, is so light that I would rather go elsewhere for games rather than wait forever to fill a table.

Pretty impressed so far. It's even written in cocoa, right? I like the filtering options and the gameplay is nice and smooth. Finally an alternative to pokerroom

Download and installation went normally. I deposited a hundred bucks and found myself with a thousand dollars of bonus money!

The site plays well but traffic is light. It is a true Mac product and looks a bit like an Ipod.

I like the site, the people are more firendly and polite. The games run very smoothly.

Why should I have to supply the administrator password for this app?
What does it want to do to my system?
Why can't I install it where I want to?
Why does it have to be installed on my system disk?

It requires an admin password since it installs in
/Applications, not your user acct.

I signed up and played on GamesGrid's dedicated Mac client getting ready for the RGP Open.

Having played on the Java clients for places like PokerRoom and Pacific Poker, I have to say this is CONSIDERABLY better. Animations are fast, play is crisp.

To me, the poker table looks a lot like an iPod. Everything's natural and easy to use. There are not a lot of player settings (like a four-color deck), but what they're lacking in customization, they make up for in first-time ease-of-use.

The look is very different and a little stark. I'm not sure if I'm going to get used to that or not.

It ran very very smoothly for me -- again, better than Mac Java clients I've used before.

I'm a big believer in Mac and it's really nice to see a poker company FINALLY supporting it -- It'd be great if the Mac world could support them back, essnentially saying to all the other companies in the world, "Look you idiots, you should have done this too."

The Mac is so much better than other PC's, I hate to be treated like a second class citizen for people who refuse to develop for it. At least GamesGrid "gets" it.
