If any of you are big fans of the Olympics like I am there is a great app by AT&T called NBC Olympics for the Vancouver Winter Games. It will also provide you with push notification. This app is FREE.

There is also one by a Canadian Provider (BELL) that is a bit easier to navigate. The name of the app is "2010Guide - Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games"

Thank you. I downloaded this App as well. I don't see where it gives push notification, but that isn't critical. This app seems to be more for those who live around the Vancouver area or visiting the Olympics for the venues. Looks good though.

I downloaded CTV Olympics. It seems more geared towards hockey so I recommend it if you're big hockey fan like I am.

I have all three Olympic apps but if you want real-time stats you need the Vancouver 2010 app!
I'm watching Hockey (Hockey fan and can't wait for the men’s to start).

I found the NBC app updates in-progress game scores but there is a delay and no stats.

The CTV Olympics app gives score and stats, but the delay is horrible, even worse than the NBC app.

Vancouver 2010 app gives scores and states real time, maybe a second or two delay. It shows when a goal is scored and if someone goes to the penalty box the players name pops up in a box for the duration of the penalty. Very cool.

I assume you mean the Vancouver 2010 Hockey app? It is .99 cents. I'm sure it is good if one doesn't mind paying for it. I prefer free apps since the Olympics is only for 2 weeks.

Thanks jpm. I misunderstood. Yes, I have already downloaded this 2010Guide earlier. I still prefer the UI of the NBC Olympics. I find myself going to that app more. I know others will differ about that.

I've been using this app, and am rather impressed with it thus far. If even helped me to find various events on TV!
