Hats off to the London 2012 Summer Olympics committee for doing such a great job in mounting one of the biggest multi-sports events in history.
They've got everything wonderfully covered -- from the mega-venues to the epic cauldron-lighting opening ceremony, from the months-long torch relay all the way to the event's official mobile application.
All areas of the event have been incredible so far. But I really have to hand it to the digital team not only for creating the highly-informative and easy-to-navigate website, and for manning the event's social media accounts but also for making sure that the app will be accessible to as many users as possible by developing various versions of it for all major mobile platforms and operating systems in the world today.
So whether you're on Windows Phone, Android, BlackBerry or iOS (the operating system of iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad), you can always get the Official London Olympics 2012 mobile application from your device's app store for free. Just look for "London 2012".
The app provides all the news, schedules, and results from the event, allowing users to stay updated with the latest action in real-time across all sports for the entire duration of the Olympics happening from July 25 to August 12, 2012!
Other key features of the official mobile app include medal tables, details of sports, and individual athlete profiles. Users can also follow specific countries, and even receive official news and updates tailored to them.
So what are you waiting for?! Download the app now and get updates about our 11 Pinoy athletes - Jasmine Alkhaldi, Mark Barriga, Rachelle Anne Cabral, Daniel Caluag, Hidilyn Diaz, Rene Herrera, Tomohiko Hoshina, Mark Javier, Jessie Lacuna, Paul Brian Rosario, and Marestella Torres - who are earnestly seeking Gold in the 2012 London Summer Olympics! #GoTeamPinas Mabuhay Kayo!
