Sochi 2014 Results app delivers Olympic placings to your Windows Phone

Published by at

With the opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics taking place in Sochi today, now is the time to consider installing the official Sochi 2014 Results app to your Windows Phone, especially if you want to be notified when your favourite events are starting, or want to keep up to date with who is winning gold.

The key feature of the app is providing a real-time results service (i.e. follow scores and timings as they happen), but you can use the app to access a complete schedule listing, athlete profiles, event information, and the latest news and photos.

When you first set up the app you'll be ask to specify your language, country, and favourite sports. Within the app you can also mark countries and athletes as favourites. This is used to present content in your own language and relevant to you. It's a neat touch and a very necessary one given the size and scope of the Winter Olympics.

Also impressive are the notification and reminder options that dictate whether and when you'll receive a reminder an/or be sent a push notification about medal results. For example, it is possible to set the app to only notify when your favourite athlete or country wins a medal. You can also opt to receive notifications about medal standings and emergencies. 


In addition to this results app you may also want to take a look at the official Sochi 2014 Guide app, which we wrote about last month and provides information and a general overview for the world's biggest Winter sporting event.
