It’s six days until the London Olympic Games and I am looking forward to watching the opening ceremonies.
We’re living in the age of the iPhone app which means they have not one but two official London 2012 apps.
If you are going to be in London and need access to everything to effectively plan your Olympic Games itinerary, get the JOIN IN app. It’s supposed to tell you how to get to the game venues, see what’s happening in the vicinity, etc. I hope I get the chance to use it!
For the rest of us who are watching from our own tellies in our home countries, there’s the RESULTS app, that shows game schedules, athlete profiles, alarm for games you favorited (no thanks to Twitter for turning favorite into a verb), and real time medal tallies.
You can also support your country’s athletes and post on twitter and Facebook but it’s not working at the moment.
I’m excited! I love London!
On a related note: because I’m a nerd I like to find out more about the Olympics even if I’m not that into sports. So I downloaded the team USA app to find out each of their athlete’s Road to the Olympics journey.
Do I love the apps? I’ll find out when the games start. Will update then!
