You may very well be one of the lucky few heading to London (or perhaps already in London) for this year’s Olympic games. Since the 2008 games, a lot has changed in the world of technology; it wasn’t until the month after the games that Android 1.0 was released. In fact, London 2012 is being called the first “social media games” and it has come with a number of official Android apps.

We’ve already take a look at how to keep up with the Olympics but you might have a more difficult job navigating your way around London. In this roundup, we’re going to take a look at a bunch of apps useful for those visiting London, even when the Olympics aren’t on.


The Olympics. A time where the entire world comes together to share their love (or at least tolerance) of sport, urging to find out the results and view the spectacle. Personally, I love the Olympics, not just because it’s in my home country this year, but also because it shows what our countries can do. It creates heroes, champions and memories.

This year the London Olympics kick off on the 27th July, and Olympic fever has swept through England, with people all over the country wanting to embrace some of the action. However, keeping track of all the dates, venues and events is hard while trying to control the rest of your life. Don’t fear, though – we have the Official London 2012 App to help us!


It’s that time again: that summer every four years where people all over the world gather to watch their country compete against and with the greatest athletes in one arena to quite literally bring home the gold. It’s time for the Summer Olympics.

A lot has changed since 2008. Many of the competing countries have new leadership – including my home country, the USA. Lots of new discoveries have been made, including very recently, the Higgs Boson particle. And, of course, Android has become a household name.

Because of that, there are lots of great ways to keep up with the Olympics on your Android device. In this roundup we’ll take a look at a few of the best.


Welcome to another edition of  “Apps That Made My Week”. Today I would like to introduce you to a novel way of reading SMS messages, a great way to look at the weather, an app that gives to charity whilst you run, and my favourite keyboard.
