The app includes visitor information for all the Olympic events, including venue maps, directions, and other information. Plus, it provides information on other social and cultural events happening in and around the Olympic games. Built-in filtering tools help you customize the app to show just the events or activities you are looking for at a given time.

Overview

There is an awful lot going on in this app and it’s easy to get overwhelmed when you first begin using it. However, if you are planning on attending the 2012 games in London, this app is a must have. I do highly recommend you take some time before the games begin to customize the app and learn how to navigate around. It’s packed with information. There’s also significant social media integration with Facebook, Twitter, and FourSquare. You can also use the app for the 2012 Paralympic games which will takes place in late August and September of 2012.
