New Olympic medal app at London 2012
The official Olympic Medal Alert App tells users whenever their favourite teams or athletes win or when a medal is awarded in their favourite sports.
The smartphone app is free and simple to use. Produced by the International Olympic Committee, it?s available on the iTunes app store, via Google Play as an Android app and from Olympic.org as a downloadable desktop widget.
Users simply open the app and register their mobile phone or email details plus details of what they want to receive medal alerts for ? whether it?s an individual athlete, team, sport or National Olympic Committee.
During the Olympic Games, the Olympic Medal Alert app will tell users instantly via email or text alert when a medal is won in one of the fields they?ve specified.
In addition, it will give users a link to the website of their relevant rights-holding broadcaster so they can check out videos, images and stories on all the Olympic action in their own language.
