July 13, 2012

BBC Sport has launched an Olympics application for Android and iOS smartphones in the UK.

The free app offers up to 24 streams of live events coverage, catch-up coverage and highlights, comprehensive schedule and results pages, and daily news stories which can be saved for offline reading.

Phil Fearnley, General Manager BBC News & Knowledge, said: “For the first truly digital Olympics, we needed to ensure that everyone could access our quality coverage wherever they were, across multiple devices. The free BBC Sport Olympics app for UK Android and iOS smartphones ensures that everything you need to keep up-to-date with the action is right there at your fingertips. Even when you’re out of range of 3G or wireless, we’ll still be able to deliver the latest news to you offline.
