Pros and Cons image


This app truly brings home the gold. I would have never expected the IOC to release a free app like this, as this is such a wealth of information they could have easily asked money for this.

I can only say that every sports fan owes it to him or herself to download this app now, before the IOC changes its mind and starts charging for this.

The app is fully designed to work with both iPhone and iPad. The app is just over 3 MB, but you will need to be online to access any of the countless features this app has to offer.
