Beijing 2008 Medal Tracker

Available In: App Store       Price: $1.99  

Beijing 2008Beijing 2008 Medal Tracker is as simple as the title suggests. It tracks the top 5 couries in Olympic medals. You can also set your favorite team to track at the bottom. The biggest downfall of this app is the cost. At $1.99, this app is only good for 14 days, then the Olympics are over. I vote pass on this one and check my earlier review of iOlympics the web app or try SportsTap from the App Store.

If you turn on the Disable iPhone Sleep option, you can leave the application open and your iPhone will not auto-lock or go into sleep mode. This will obviously drain your battery much faster but, it will leave the application open so that you can constantly check the score of a game.
