Official Windows Phone app for the Sochi Winter Olympics

Published by at

The Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee has published an official app for the upcoming Winter Olympics. While the app is primarily designed to be a digital companion for those attending the games, it's also useful for those who wish to familiarise themselves with the schedule and venue locations for the multiple sports and cultural happenings that make up the XXII Winter Olympiad.

The main part of the app is based around an events listings and place guide, but there's also a section for the Olympic Torch relay, news and photos, and web links for buying tickets and getting additional information. Each event and venue gets its own page with a detailed description of what's taking place, along with illustrative photos and videos.
