As a Olympic games fan, you won’t miss any your favorite Olympic game. Try to watch the games as they happen or catch up on the latest results? It’s easy to achieve with your handy smartphone. Here shows you three apps.
Eurosport is covering the Olympics with its own range of apps. These are for Android and iOS (for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad running iOS 4.0 or later).
Devices running those platforms can gain access to a live simulcast from the two Eurosport TV channels, along with being able to use the back catalogue of content.
Eurosport has also collaborated with Samsung to offer new Galaxy S III handset owners a free promotional subscription, which ends on 12 August. The service costs £2.99 a month for 12 months or £4.99, with no long-term contract attached.
The Eurosport player is available for use in over 30 European countries and with the same content, costing around 5.90 Euros.
London 2012, an app provides detailed information about Olympic 2012. This app has collected lots of data and tried to present it in simplest possible way. It is loaded with features like Schedule, Sports played, Countries participating, Venues, Daily updates, NEWS, Reminder and much more.
BBC Olympics app
BBC, as one of the largest broadcaster in the world, it released the Olympic 1012 app for Android.
The Beeb’s free Olympics sport app is available for Android 2.2 onwards and Apple’s iOS 5.0 and above. There is also support for BlackBerry handsets. And If your phone is left off this list, there is a basic version of the BBC sports website that’s accessible by other devices.
The apps offer 24 live streaming channels of the London 2012 games, matching what is available on the TV. It is supported by a detailed schedule of all the events, with real-time results. There are also news stories on the Olympics, from each of the events. These can be saved for off-line reading, when the reception isn’t that good; for example, on the tube or train.
There is a catch-up video service and highlights of the action. You can also watch text-based commentaries, if the data connection is weak. Included within the app is access to facts and stats about every athlete from all countries represented.
These features are solely for use within the UK, but there is a cut-down version available elsewhere in the world. This is from BBC Worldwide, and it doesn’t have the video streaming feature, but does contain some of the other aspects. These are the text commentaries, news stories and updates, all of which are tailored for specific regions.
