Whether you are heading to London for the 2012 Summer Olympics, or watching the games from home, there are a number of new apps on the market that enable you to follow the events using your mobile device.
NBC Olympics and Live Extra
NBC, which will be broadcasting the games, has two apps to help you follow the action, no matter where you happen to be. First, "NBC Olympics" offers a variety of content, including news, videos, blogs, medal counts, and information on London and venues. The app also includes a feature that enables you to find out about Olympic athletes who grew up near where you live, as well as Twitter tracking.
If you prefer to watch the Olympics live, check out NBC's "Live Extra" app. The app provides both live and replayed video streams of all the events, but to use the app and access all of the videos, you must have a subscription to a cable or TV service that includes CNBC and MSNBC.
2012 Team USA Road to London Olympics
Team USA has its own app, the "2012 Team USA Road to London Olympics," which not only allows you to follow your favorite US athletes, but also gives you a "Cheer" button that allows you to contact them via Twitter or Facebook.
London 2012: Official Results
There is also the "London 2012: Official Results App," which brings you news and results of all the events. The app is useful if you want to follow how a non-US country is doing, as it lets you set your preferences so that you get specific alerts on any of the countries competing.
London 2012: Join In
Finally, for anyone who plans on heading to London to catch the games, the "London 2012: Join In" app helps you navigate the games and venues, and it also lists the other types of Olympic-related entertainment and events happening throughout the games.
All of the apps mentioned above are free and available on iOS and Android devices.
