If you thought Yahoo's push into esports would stop at a dedicated editorial team, guess again. Now the outfit is taking that expertise mobile with the launch of the Yahoo Esports app on Android. It's a bit sparse at the moment, though, only covering a quintet of games: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends and Street Fighter V.

The cool wrinkle is that you can set reminders for when matches start, check out real-time stats and even watch game streams from within the app. Each game has its own page, with access to news on a per-game basis and tons of video interviews with competitors. Yahoo says this is just the start and that an iOS version isn't far off. Now the countdown begins for ESPN to launch a competitive gaming app of its own.
