Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics: There’s an app for that

The Winter Olympics are here! If you don’t have a front-row seat to the action, we’ve rounded up some apps that will keep you in the loop.

Keep up with Team USA on the official app. Read bios, view photos and videos -- and get event schedules. If you’ve got team spirit, you can even buy souvenirs right from the app.  The Team USA is free at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Get an inside look at what’s happening at the games with the Sochi 2014 Guide. The App features a full schedule of events, like the opening ceremony, live performances and fireworks.  It also has area and transportation maps and a travel guide. If you’re lucky enough to be there, you can even buy tickets to events right from the app. The Sochi 2014 Guide app is free at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Connect with your favorite figure skater, snowboarder, or any athlete at the games through an app called the Olympic Athletes’ Hub.  You can follow their posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, all in one place. The app is free at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Go Team USA!
