The 2010 Winter Olympics kicks off just 3 hours north of me in Vancouver, Canada tonight and I just received a note from Handmark about a great free application to help you keep up to date on the activities at the Olympics. Handmark’s Winter Sports Live is available for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile users as a free download. You will get access to news, photos, scores, and more so check it out on your device.
To start with I downloaded it to my Google Nexus One (found it in the Android Market) and have to say this will most likely be the primary way I will be following the Winter Games. I am a bigger fan of the Summer Olympics, but do like to follow some of the major downhill events, bobsledding, and speed skating. The interface is pretty slick and performance is fast. There is not a lot of content up yet since the events do not kick off until tomorrow, but there are some photos and news articles to check out at this time.
