Yahoo Brings Esports To iOS, Still Kicking
Even though most tech people and analysts can't tell if Yahoo's resting or stunned, the company tries real hard to show some vital signs.
Most of them go unnoticed, but there are notable exceptions like Yahoo Messenger and their refurbished Android mail client.
Now, this patchy constellation sees a new member added, and it's called Yahoo Esports.
As it's easy to guess from the name, this new app will provide its users with esports results, including things like:
- live tournament coverage;
- match highlights;
- game scores and more.
The coverage isn't too impressive so far, and the titles include Dota 2, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, Counter Strike GO, and Street Fighter V.
To make the app easily navigable, the developers endowed it with a cozy card-based interface and it's really smooth and comfortable to browse.
As Yahoo is clinging to life in every way the company can, tapping into the prosperous industry is a radical and promising move.
You can comment on stories and news that interest you and get real-time updates for scores and live matches.
The esports business is a-boomin, and e-athletes, if that's a word, rake in impressive amounts of money. As Yahoo is clinging to life in every way the company can, tapping into the prosperous industry is a radical and promising move.
Keep in mind that Yahoo isn't the only player at this table, with the likes of ESPN and TheScore already grazing this juicy green meadow.
Yahoo Esports for iOS ana Android is already live and you can get it through our catalog.
