E ntertainment on the Smartphone - The smartphone, as we know it today, didn't exist a decade ago. The first true smartphone, Apple's iPhone, was launched in 2007, less than 10 years ago. But its effect on the world of online entertainment is comparable to the invention of the steam engine on industry: it started a revolution. Smartphones have changed the way we communicate, the way we keep in touch with our friends and relatives, but the biggest impact it had was on the world of entertainment.

Smartphone entertainment


A pocket-sized concert hall

Even before the first smartphone was released, "camera phones" were used as portable music players. But with the emergence of smartphones, the habit of listening to music on the go has undergone a massive change. Today, we don't store our music on our phones, but in the cloud - or better still, on the servers of streaming service providers. Today we don't have a handful of albums and tracks, but virtually the complete collection of music ever composed by man - at our fingertips.


A pocket-sized Las Vegas

Although mobile casinos did exist before smartphones, their presence became notable only after the iPhone changed the way we look at mobile gaming. And even more so after HTML5 became the platform of choice for casino software developers. Today, the All Slots Casino,, can offer its players a complete casino experience on a device that easily fits in their pockets. And all this with the utmost security and privacy assured.


All Slots Casino

The All Slots Casino has been around for more than smartphones, and it had a mobile option for its players since the mid-2000s, but with limited success. The phones of those times, as well as the expensive - and unreliable - internet connections made mobile slots more a novelty, not a viable business. Today, in turn, the All Slots Casino has a mobile game collection that exceeds 100 titles. The smartphone revolution was truly beneficial to the All Slots Casino, and other gaming portals with similar content.


A pocket-sized movie theater

Watching pre-recorded videos, as well as movies and video clips, was possible even before the smartphone, but in the post-iPhone era it has become one of the most widespread way to consume animated media. And today we don't merely watch pre-recorded content - our smartphones give us the possibility to follow the events live, as they happen. Seeing the next SpaceX rocket launch, or even a volcano erupting in Finland, is not a problem anymore - anyone can do it with just a few taps. And video calls are not science fiction either. There are several free services that offer their users the chance not only to hear their loved ones' voice, but also to see their faces, from half a world away.
