London 2012: Official Results
This app for the Olympic and Paralympic Games covers all 36 sports showcased. Fans around the world can keep up with the latest news and events taking place at the venues. While the medal tally option is useful, enthusiasts will be happy to learn that they can also personalise live updates and notifications according to their choices.
You could keep track of countries in the gold medal lead and set reminders so that you don’t miss out on anything. And if that’s not all, search for athletes by sport and by country, and select individuals as favourites in the ‘My Games’ section.
Worried you may miss the opportunity to watch an Indian athlete stand on the podium, claim a gold while the tricolour flutters in the background and the familiar tunes of ‘Jana Gana Mana’ echo in London? The BBC Olympics app can come to your rescue with 24 live streams of the ongoing action, medal moments and highlights. Each country, sport and athlete has its own page along with interviews and a detailed schedule for every event. Share stories, videos and results by email and on social networks.
The app is available for Android 2.2 phones and above. Flash installation is required to watch live video and highlights.
