Yahoo Sports Launches New Fantasy App With Mobile DraftingBy: Chris Crum - July 25, 2013
Yahoo announced that it has launched its new 2013 Fantasy Sports app today, which brings a new design, and new features to the experience.
One of the big new improvements is that it now features mobile drafting, which many will find tremendously helpful. It’s a lot of pressure to be at a computer during draft time.
“Managers can now sign up, draft a team and win their league championship from their iOS and Android device thanks to new technology incorporated by Bignoggins Production, Loki Studios and the Yahoo! Sports mobile team,” a spokesperson for Yahoo tells WebProNews. “The app also now features mock drafting, to help fans prepare and get an edge on the competition.”
Yahoo announced its acquisition of Bignoggins just a few weeks ago. They haven’t wasted any time.
“And starting with football, for the first time ever, all of Yahoo! Sports Fantasy games will live under one mobile roof – the Yahoo! Sports Fantasy app – including basketball, hockey and baseball,” the spokesperson adds.
According to Yahoo, the new app is faster than previous experiences. It also has free notifications.
The app is available for iOS and Android.
