 “This Spring carnival we expect a record amount of people will use their smartphone and tablet to get involved in the action, particularly on Melbourne Cup day.”

Apple downloads of the Racing App jumped a whopping 500% since October last, while Android downloads soared 200% since February 2013.

Viewers for Saturday’s Derby Day race meet saw a 54% increase in traffic across all mobile platforms with 350% increase on Apple devices, including iPhone, iPad.
