Best iPhone and iPad apps to keep up with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

The best iPhone and iPad apps to keep up with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

Keep up with all your favorite events and athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympics with these apps for iPhone and iPad!

The 2014 Winter Olympics officially begin on February 6 but athletes from all over the world have already made their trek to Sochi, and all eyes all over the world will be on them as they compete to bring home the gold. No matter which events you want to watch, your iPhone and iPad can keep you up to date on medal counts, highlights, and more. If you can't catch every minute of the 2014 Winter Olympics, you'll still want to keep these apps on hand!

Sochi 2014 Guide

The best iPhone and iPad apps to keep up with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

The Sochi 2014 Guide app for both iPhone and iPad is the official guide app for the Sochi Olympics. Aside from giving an overview of upcoming events, you can integrate it with your calendar if you'd like so you always know exactly what's coming up and when. There's also a section for news and highlights if you need to catch up. People attending the Sochi Winter Olympics should also have the guide app on hand since there's tips on where to stay, ticket info, and more.

Anyone attending the Olympics should have the guide app as should anyone who wants events and trials right in the calendar.

Sochi 2014 Results

Sochi 2014 Results for iPhone is similar to the guide app but puts a focus on medal counts and results. You can also customize push notifications to your liking so you don't miss news and medal updates on your favorite sport or athlete. You can also view more information on each sport along with a schedule of when each competition for that sport is to take place. The results app also features a list of athletes with information about them.

For updated info on athletes and up to the minute push notifications for medal counts and event news, be sure you have the Sochi 2014 results app.

Sochi 2014 Medal Alert

The Sochi 2014 Medal Alert app for iPhone also lets you track medal counts but is much simpler. Just set alerts for any countries and events you'd like to receive updates for and the Medal Alert app will send a push notification whenever a medal is awarded. It works much in the same way as the Sochi 2014 Results app but with less options and a cleaner design.

If you don't need anything but alerts for medaling in your favorite events and nothing more, get the Sochi 2014 Medal Alert app.

BBC Sport

BBC Sport is one of the best designed news apps around and their Olympic coverage will be featured right inside of it. Alongside up to the minute news and information on the 2014 Olympics, BBC Sport also has a full schedule of events so there's no need for an external one.

If you don't need push notifications and care more about catching up with the Olympics at your own pace, check out BBC Sport.

NBC Olympics

The best iPhone and iPad apps to keep up with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

If you're in the U.S., the NBC Olympics app focuses on bringing you the latest news not only on competitions but on news surrounding athletes themselves. The main screen shows hot news as well as what's coming up. The side menu lets you access a complete list of athlete, information on them, and more. It's much like the BBC Sport app but in its own dedicated app.

(If you're outside the U.S., check the App Store for your country's Olympic network!)

Olympic Athletes' Hub

The best iPhone and iPad apps to keep up with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

The Olympic Athletes' Hub puts the spotlight on the Olympians themselves by pulling in social feeds from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Keep up with your favorite athletes and sports or view all social updates from an entire country. Olympic Athletes' Hub is the only app that gives you a sneak peak backstage at the Olympics.

If you want to see what your favorite athletes are up to on and off the slopes, look no further than Olympic Athletes' Hub.

Your picks?

These are our favorite picks for keeping up with the 2014 Winter Olympics. As always, app availability varies by App Store and country so let us know what you're planning on loading up on your iPhone and iPad to help you keep up with the Olympics!

For the cable cutters such as myself, like with what FoxSports did with their app for the Super Bowl, are there any apps on iPad / iPhone that would allow me to watch / stream the actual Winter Olympics in real-time? If not, any place online that I could watch it in real-time?

The iPhone and iPad, as everyone knows, are two highly popular, bestselling gadgets from Apple. I would have Twitter installed on my gadget so that I am updated with the latest sports news. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.crittermap.airhockey

These apps look pretty terrible. I'd rather look for Russian porn. but it makes no sense to do it on an iPhone because the screen is way too small to get the full sensation.
