With this app you’ll take an extra step and dig deeper so it’s not just about the events but the athletes taking part in them. This official app is provided by the U.S. Olympic Committee so you know the information you see is accurate and up-to-date. The app followed the progress of putting the team together and then chronicling their personal experiences during the games themselves. The Paralympic games are also covered in this app. You’ll be treated to daily updates, a very cool “cheer” button which essentially allows you to cheer a particular athlete on by sending a personal message through Twitter or Facebook, editorial that focuses on the athletes and the different sports, a spot to make donations to Team USA, and a place for buying official Team USA merchandise. Perhaps the most useful area is the athlete bios, where you’ll get to learn about all the team members. There are also video clips and photo galleries to browse. Whether you follow the Olympics religiously or just like to get the main pieces of information, this app is a great tool to use. You’ll be able to take it on the go with you so you can stay informed no matter where you are. The other advantage of the app is to have all the information in one handy location rather than searching out all the individual athletes on your own. It’s a one-stop shop for Olympic news, information, and updates. The app itself is extremely easy to use and well-organized. The sports are divided up so you can go into each individual sport and then learn about the athletes taking part. The Medal Tally and Interesting Facts sections are a definite must to check out. All in all it’s a great supplementary piece to the Olympics themselves.
