The William Hill Android App
How to install the William Hill Android app – There is now a dedicated William Hill app for Android users in the UK. You can download it here. Tap the button below to go straight to the Google Play store and install the app to any Android mobile phone or tablet.
Here’s how the app looks, images taken on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
The app’s performance in terms of how smooth it is going from one page to another is fantastic, which isn’t always the case with its competitor’s apps. The layout of the site is so intuitive, as is the menu system, making navigating around it simply, even for new users.
You are presented with daily lists of each sport which we find makes finding what you need much easier than having to scroll through different leagues or tournaments.
There are also specific coupons you can select if you are overwhelmed by the choice, or you can delve down into each individual sport/market if desired and really mix it up. Please scroll down for the full app review.
William Hill iPhone App
You can download the app from the iTunes store. To do this, all you need to do is to head to the app store from your iOS device (iPhone or iPad) from the button below.
The iOs app has some key features just for iPhone & iPad. There are various ways to log in depending on your preference. Touch ID and Face ID are both integrated into the app on compatible devices. You also have the option to automatically log-in every time you access the app.
You do also have the option of having to enter your password each time if you share your device with somebody else or have friends who like to play practical jokes every time you leave your phone unattended.
William Hill iPhone app widget
iPhone and iPad users now get a widget screen available to them when they swipe left from their locked screen or from their unlocked screen (depending on how the user has their iOS device set up). These widgets provide snippets of key information that are very easily accessible in order for you to view at a glance. In terms of the William Hill iOS app widget – this displays the top 5 bets of the day.
From this widget, you can tap the green bet now button to place the recommended accumulator, or you can remove or swap selections as you please. To edit selections you just need to tap on the selection you do not like the look of.
This will then eliminate the selection from the accumulator as well as providing a ‘swap button’ tap the swap button and another selection from that day will appear. You can swap a selection as many times as you like.
William Hill app 3D touch shortcuts

- The In-Play section
- The football markets

- Share William Hill
You will also see the same information your widget shows above with the ability to place a bet on the most popular picks for that day as shown below.
Here are some of the screenshots of the William Hill iPhone app.
William Hill iPad App
The app is optimised for the bigger screen space and holds one major advantage over the iPhone app. This is to do with the live streaming capability.
William Hill has a comprehensive list of fixtures across a variety of sports that are available to view live from your mobile device (Geo-restrictions apply and a William Hill account is needed). If a match/game is available to be viewed via live streaming you will see a small grey TV logo located above the corresponding fixture.
Tap on the fixture and when the game is live you will be presented with a video window with a play button at the top of the page. tap on the play symbol and the live stream will begin. If you want to live stream from your iPhone you are forced to watch the action in full-screen mode.
This does not allow you to then peruse the markets or place bets whilst watching the action at the same time. With the iPad app, betting and watching at the same time is possible, thanks to the ‘picture in picture’ mode.
When selecting to play the live stream from your iPad the video will still go to full screen. However, there is an option to change this. if you tap on the screen whilst the video is streaming you will see a few options open up to you.
In the top left, you will see three symbols. A cross to close the stream in the far top left but also a rectangle with an arrow inside pointing to another filled rectangle as shown below.
This will then minimize the live stream window to a small moveable window so that you can see the action and the markets available to bet on. The video window is now open for you to re-size using the pinch-to-zoom gesture. Make it big or small as to your personal preference.
What we find as a really neat feature is that you can navigate away from the app whilst using the picture-in-picture mode. This means you can keep your eye on the action even when you have placed all your bets and wish to look at something else. You can open up any other app on your iPad and still have visibility of how your bet is performing.
You can move the video window around your screen so that it does not obscure information and you can even park the window off the screen by swiping it completely to one side. The audio still plays but the action remains hidden until you decide to swipe it back in again.
The easiest way is to download and install the dedicated William Hill iPad app to your device from the iOS app store. Go straight there from the button below
Here are some screenshots of the iPad app.
As you can see you get presented with a lot more information, making it much easier to spot what you are looking for. This is, even more, the case with the iPad pro. The information looks great on a 12.9″ screen and also makes live streaming very pleasing to watch instead of having to squint a little! We would recommend using the app in portrait mode on the iPad Pro as it doesn’t seem optimised correctly for landscape orientation.
William Hill iWatch App
The iWatch app provides you with all of the most popular bets for that particular day.
Here are some screenshots from the app.
