WP Central is reporting that the official London Olympics Windows Phone app is now available. Here is what they are saying:
The official 2012 Olympic Games app has landed in the Windows Phone Marketplace. London 2012 was developed by the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) and is designed to keep you up to date with the latest Olympic action and Paralympic action.
The app is laid out nicely with the following pages.
- Live Updates Page that currently displays a countdown timer to the Olympic Opening Ceremony. From there, the page will display updates from the games.
- Sports Page that breaks down the events by sports. Each sports tile will pull up the specific events, news items for that sport, a photos page and an About page that covers any rules and venue information on that sport.
- Calendar Page breaks things down by date. Tap on a date and you’ll pull up an time listing of events by sport. Tap and hold an event to set a reminder so you won’t be late.
- The Favourites Page lists any sport you’ve tagged as favorite or reminders you’ve set.
- The Menu Page has links to view the games schedules and results, medal tally, athlete profiles, access the My Games section and access the app’s settings. The My Games section can be set to a specific Country to pull up news, reminders and favourites for the Country.
If you are an Olympics fan and are on Windows Phone, go ahead and download the app now!
