So the opening ceremony hasn’t even started yet and already we are buzzing around the office “shaking it to the right” in anticipation for tonight’s events. Seriously, if I’d known the Spice Girls were going to perform I would have made more of an effort to get over there.
Reuters has launched a mobile application for the games so you can follow all the action. Upon opening the app a beautiful stream of photos taken by award-winning photographers is presented. It’s totally free and so far there are no advertisements. With each photo you have the option of viewing related news stories and information about the photographers. The app also contains a schedule of all the Olympic events and results.
Photo sharing is integrated with Facebook and Twitter. There is a built in filter available so you can receive updates specifically on your preferred sports or countries of interest and set up push notifications. Get the app on iTunes for iPhone and iPad only.
