For me, the Olympics have always been a special time of year. It doesn’t matter if it is the Winter or Summer Olympics – I get the opportunity to watch sports and especially athletes that have sacrificed so much for the chance to complete in the sport they love.

In today’s day and age, I want to be able to keep up with what is going on while I’m on the go. I have downloaded a few apps to follow the Olympics and the one App that has been suggested to feature is the NBC Olympics.

The timing couldn’t be better than the Olympics to use as a starting point for kicking on my Featured Apps!
