Read More

Yahoo Sports is all about news from the sports world, statistics, scores, championships and live broadcasts.

The app, being an adaption of the eponymous website,  provides reports on:

  •        NFL: from Minnesota Rams to Pittsburgh Steelers.
  •        Premier League: Bournemouth, Chelsea, Fulham, etc.
  •        La Liga: Barcelona, Valencia CF, etc.
  •        NBA: Boston Celtics, Lakers, etc.
  •        NHL: Anaheim Ducks, Red Wings, Penguins and so on.

As you can see, every category features all the major and popular teams.

Other three section are:

1)    Favorites - here you can add the teams you cheer for to get the news, highlights on memorable/brightest moments, latest scores and upcoming matches.

2)    Sports - it is a kind of sports-calendar that displays games, which are going to take place in the nearest future. They are divided into soccer, tennis and other subcategories.

3)    Headlines - articles, stories, and interviews. They provide insight into the current events, athletes' personal life and highlight the most significant moments from the history of sports.

If you're afraid of the possibility to skip a highly anticipated game, starring your beloved team, you can set a notification in My Team section. For instance, if you select MLB category, you can choose to be alarmed of 3 Hour Pre-Start, Game Start, Inning Change, Every 3 Innings, etc.

Finally in the Picks section is given the rating of the users, who luckily managed to pick the correct results.

Design 5/5

Yahoo Sports is a laconic app, which doesn't suffer from being overloaded with excessive functionality. You have a "hamburger" menu on the right, which browses all the features upon tapping. And the start page displays the freshest news on the teams and clubs you've marked as favorite.

Additionally, you can switch between Light/Dark themes.

Usability 5/5

Yahoo Sports allows you to follow your favored teams and athletes and keep track of their scores. It encompasses "genres" from hockey, football, and basketball to women's tennis, NASCAR Sprint, and MMA. Notifications never let you skip an important game, and the stats are quite useful for the fans, bettors, and bookmakers.

Cross-platform Use 5/5

Currently, the app is available for iOS and Android users.

IOS version requires 197.7 MB of free space and at least iOS 10.3, meanwhile Android app requires at least 59 MB and Android 5.1.

In-app Purchases

Despite the fact that Yahoo Sports is free to download, it features ads. The in-app purchases include NBA League Pass for $199.99.


Yahoo Sports aggregates news and reports on every important sports-even and promptly provides you with updates. You can stay informed of how your favorite team is doing literally 24/7. Whether you're just an enthusiast or a well-seasoned gambler, its statistical data will be invaluable for you.



Download Yahoo Sports if you need to check the scores and sports news on the go.

    MLB: You can sort statistics by team. It would be nice if you could sort by National League and American League.
