New Mobile App Tracks eSports News, Scores, Schedules

Tech Crunch reports that “Instant eSports is building a mobile platform that displays news, scores, and schedules from the most popular competitive gaming leagues around the world.”

“The app pulls information from a variety of sources, including each league’s website, Steam APIs, and multiple eSports blogs across the web. Rick Ling, co-founder of Instant eSports, said that most eSports sites produce fewer than 10 original articles a week. By combining all of these sites into a single newsfeed, the company can give eSports fans a news source far better than any traditional news site, says Ling.”

The app is built for iPhone and Android. Instant eSports was funded as part of Y Combinator’s Summer YC 2015 class.
