We are pretty sure you have already heard that the 2016 Summer Olympics had just started. This year they are taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The media world prepared for this event, as it is probably the most important one for the whole world. If you want to watch the games on your laptop, smartphone or tablet, here are the best apps for you.
First of all, there are the officials apps, made by the event’ planners. You can download them if you are using an Android system or the iOS one. They are the called The Olympics – Oficial App and Rio 2016. It seems that users were not very thrilled with this apps, as they have many poor reviews. Even though they are easy to use, the issues they have made people want other options. A better application made by the International Olympic Committee is Rio 2016 Social Hub. There you can see also links from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and it is very easy to use it.
The biggest search engine in the world, Google, developed new features, especially for the Olympics. Users can now see when their favourite event is scheduled, information about athlete or score updates. Moreover, Google allows us to see any update from Google Search Trends.
NBC has created a dedicated application for the Olympics which is called NBC Olympics: Rio News and Results. There you can see every update about the games, including results and information about the schedule. If you want to watch the Olympics, you can do this on your TV as NBC won the rights to airing them in the United States.
Another awesome application you can use these days is BBC Sport. BBC earned the rights of broadcasting the Olympics in the United Kingdom. The app is very well designed and pushes notifications about results or important news.
The Olympics are the leading international sporting event. Thousands of athletes from the whole world participate in competitions to win medals. The competition is taking place every four years, in summer and winter. They are inspired by the ancient Olympic Games who were held in Greece.
