It’s hard to believe that the 2010 Winter Olympics are less than a month away from starting in Vancouver. It’s going to be an exciting time for the entire city here and you can definitely feel the buzz hit home as the days go by.
When the Olympics start, most people will still be working as usual. If you’re an Olympics junkie, then you will definitely enjoy the CTVOlympics.ca iPhone app. This app is created by <strike>the same makers of the TSN iPhone app</strike> Indusblue Inc. and offers an excellent job of keeping track of Olympic news, sports, player profiles, and event schedules.
Currently the app is still in it’s preliminary state but there’s still some useful info available. You can read up on profiles of your favourite Canadian athletes and figure out who to keep an eye on when the games begin. There are Push notifications that you can customize to follow your top 3 favourite countries. When Canada wins a medal, you be the FIRST one to find out in real time!
You will get everything you need from Canada’s official broadcasters which will keep you in the loop. These include: CTV, TSN, Rogers Sportsnet, RDS, V, RIS Info Sports, OLN, OMNI, APTN, and ATN. As the Games start, there will be play-by-play feeds and live blogging of events straight within the app.
With the 2010 Winter Games just around the corner, the CTV Olympics iPhone app will be a nice companion for those looking to keep track of the games no matter where you are. I would expect possibly another minor update when the Games begin to tweak and add more features to this cool app.
Go Team Canada! What countries/sports will you be keeping a close eye on when the Olympics start?
