Article 82: Sochi Olympics

 Mobile Olympics: Options from the Modern Nerd Blog  

Hey guys, I hope everyone has been dealing with the snow, because it’s been a rough winter. There is some consolation though; the Olympics are back and in Sochi, Russia. As America competes to be the gold medal leader again, there are some cool ways to keep up with the action even if you can’t sit and watch them live. Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and computers can take advantage of apps created especially for the games. This week, the Modern Nerd is going to review a couple put out covering the competition, which are available on Apple and Android devices.

This app is available for iDevices and Android, and features full-event replays, highlights, and live streaming of events playing in real time. You can set reminders about events that you don’t want to miss, like the hockey tournament. Or curling, if that’s your thing…
