It has some cool features like the  ”Cheer” button to send personal Facebook and Twitter messages to your favorite athletes. However, I think that athletes will be devoting more time to events and practice than to social networking during the  games. This App also helps you to to buy Team USA merchandise.

Other Olympic Games Apps

To keep track of Olympics Schedule of events you can use official apps like “London 2012: Join In” (available on Android, iOS and Blackberry) and for results summary you can download “London 2012:Results” (available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7).
