London 2012 Official Olympic
Game app for Android and iPhone iOS review
This week, the Official (so they tell me) London
2012 Summer Olympic Android and iOS game app was
released. The info they sent me tells me that the
game allows you to participate in nine of the most
anticipated events at this year's summer games. In
this app review, I played a couple of them.
It sounded interesting, but as many of you know, I'm
more inclined to download, install and review
productivity apps like
CamScanner PDF maker or
Vlingo than review an Android or iPhone game
app. But, I figured I'd watch the
YouTube video they sent and see how it looks.

The London 2012 Olympic game lets you participate in
110m Hurdles, Swimming, Kayaking and Archery and
more. All events are displayed in 3D graphics at
official London 2012 venues. You create your own
athlete and the graphics are amazing.
The instructions for the first two events I tried
(100 meter run and freestyle swimming) were very
clear and I was ready to go.
I must say, it's a pretty fun app and if you have
the time and space, I'd recommend it. I know I plan
to play more.
