Comments and ratings for London 2012 Results App
Great apps works well.
Check it out this app tooo ..
Notifications requires sound. App legacy after games and data within it. Idea: My IOC feature that have both results and join in export of user choices (e.g. faves sports, athletes and venues)
Hasn't realised there's a Paralympics on.
Works well on both the zoom and desire hd
Discovered this app on my first visit to an event. Really useful whilst at the venue and keeping up with the news. Thanks
This was a great concept, but not terribly useful. I was hoping for more info on the sports and athletes, maybe a what to look for section. after it failed to load and crashed a dozen times, I stopped using it.
