Official 2012 Summer Olympics Apps Now Available on Google Play

Not very many of us will be in London when the 2012 Summer Olympics kick off in a couple weeks, but we will be able to follow the adverting, corporate sponsorships, and oh yeah the sports competitions via a couple new Android apps.

NBC has just published a couple apps in Google Play. Both cover the Olympics, and it’s not clear where one leaves off and the other picks up in terms of coverage. But the listings do say that you’ll be able to watch live events with the apps, so they’re definitely worth getting.  The apps will also include background on the competitors, commentary, information about london, and more.
