French Open Tennis on iPhone, iPad, and Android with the Roland Garros Mobile App

The French Open, one of the world’s premiere tennis championship gets underway this week and you can follow the action on your mobile devices with the free Roland Garros app for the iPhone, iPad, and Android.

The app has been updated for 2013 and back again is the news feed, a video section, schedule and results, a live radio feed, player info, and a section for those who plan to attend the French Open.

Included this year is a very nice visitor’s guide and stadium access map.

While the app looks nice, App Store reviews to this point have been poor. The app was OK for me during opening day play (iPad version), but I did notice that results were not showing up for me in the schedule/results tab even a few hours after matches had concluded. The loading of some content was also rather sluggish. News articles and some highlights were available for completed matches.

UPDATE (May 26, 2013): due to territory rights limitations, live matches streaming is only available to Orange mobile or Livebox customers in France.
