The best Dota 2 mobile apps for Android and iOS

The best Dota 2 mobile apps for Android and iOS

I tried multiple Dota 2 apps to find out the best ones for Android and iOS. They are divided in categories based on their purpose.

The apps have been tested on Android, but most of them also have an iOS version.

I think that the in-game Dota 2 item builds are more updated and simpler to use, nevertheless I have added one of the most popular hero build apps for those interested.

There were literally dozens of counter picking apps, and in the end I have included those that have a better interface and more features. Probably, all of them retrieve data from the same statistical sources.

All statistical apps I tried were subpar if compared to the amount of data provided by most websites, so I have discarded all of them but the upcoming OpenDota one.

Remote control

NineOuttaTen

Available for Android and iOS

The app is ad-free

Features

  • Accept or decline party invitations.

  • Queue for games.

  • Accept games, also custom ones.

  • Pick and random heroes.

  • Chat with your team in the lobby.

  • See your team’s hero selections and both teams hero picks.

It requires an installer on your computer to connect your Dota 2 client with the mobile app. It only functions with 64-bit Windows - no Linux or Mac.

The desktop client passively reads the game client’s memory, and the developers confirmed that you can’t get VAC banned for using it.

It supports screen resolutions with 4:3, 16:10, and 16:9 aspect ratio, so it doesn’t work with an ultrawide monitor.

Dota 2 statistics

OpenDota

Available for Android and iOS

Currently, the app is ad-free

OpenDota is one of the best Dota 2 statistical websites, and recently the developers released an app to take advantage of their software also on mobile.

The app is in beta and doesn’t have the same features of the website, but more will be added over time. It parses your games and presents detailed stats about your matches, heroes, and overall performance.

I talked about their app and on how to enter the beta in a previous news.

Update: the app has been officially released.
