There are some better apps made by indie-developers, some are simpler and less cluttered. Here's the one I use for iPhone: London Games 2012: Results & Alerts and Android: London Games Scoreboard

Thanks for the suggestions; I need as many as I can get to keep up with all of the action for the Olympic Games. Sometimes it’s difficult to stay updated with every storyline coming out of London. When I’m away from home I’ve been using the Dish Remote Access App for my iPad to watch live coverage and stored matches on my DVR. I watched a recording of Phelps and company winning the gold in the men’s relay on my commute to Dish. I’m happy there are so many more stories during this Olympic season!

It appears that the BBC Olympics app is being blocked in the US. It doesn't show up in Play on my AT&T Galaxy SII, and clicking the link above gets me a version in what I think is Cyrillic, but I still can't send the app to my phone. Anyone else having the same problem?

According to Google it's Bulgarian. I'd guess that Ray S. is Bulgarian, hence the link. I could definitely be wrong though.
