As you might have guessed by the continuing news coverage, the London Olympic Games are almost upon us. And now the BBC is launching its official Olympic app for Android (and iOS), allowing you mobile to access the Beeb's Olympic coverage in all its forms. You'll find the same written and video content found on the BBC mobile sites, as well as live streams of the games once things kick off on July 27. There's also a guide to all the leading athletes, and an Olympic schedule to help users see what's next. Once the medals start being doled out, you'll find a dedicated guide page for keeping track of those, too.
The app is available now at the Google Play Store for devices running Android 2.2 and above. To view the BBC's Olympic live streams, you'll need the soon to be deprecated Adobe Flash Player. Unfortunately that means anyone on the latest version of the OS, 4.1 Jelly Bean, is out of luck. You’ll also need to be in the UK to stream content from the BBC, though if you’re in the US, you can always use NBC’s streaming app instead.
