Channels of television, especially sports, have prepared a wide coverage of the event, but if you do not want to be anchored to the TV also you can find out everything that happens in river via mobile phone with one of these apps.

The Olympics

We started with the the International Olympic Committee official app, a service that can be abreast of the latest news, follow the results, medals count and the schedules of all competitions. One of the advantages offered by this app is that it has information about the Olympic Games from previous years and also about future competitions

However, despite being the official app, its interface is improved and more an adaptation of their website that a mobile app, which makes that navigate through the different sections are rather chaotic. It has a menu button that we can access all the available blocks in the app and a feed with the most relevant news.
