BBC Sport's Olympics app reaches 250,000 downloads in week
BBC Sport's marquee Olympics app for Android, iOS and BlackBerry mobile phones in the UK has been downloaded more than 250,000 times in just a week.
The news provider launched the new application last week and it allows people to stay up to date with all the events going on at the Games at any time.
It provides up to 24 streams of live coverage, detailed schedule and results pages and daily news stories on the Olympics, which gets underway this week.
As well as being made available to UK users, people around the globe have also been able to download the app but only if they own an Apple or Android mobile phone.
"The app adds even greater value to the BBC Sport mobile experience, ensuring you never miss a moment of the Games," general manager of BBC News & Knowledge Phil Fearnley said at the time of the launch.
