The BBC's Olympics app has launched on the iOS and Android platforms, offering smartphone and tablet owners 24 streams of live coverage of events.
The app also boasts catch-up and guide services that will contain edited highlights of each day's events, as well as a detailed Olympic Games guide.
The guide offers facts about athletes along with statistics and news stories that can be saved to read offline.
"For the first truly digital Olympics, we needed to ensure that everyone could access our quality coverage wherever they were, across multiple devices," said general manager of BBC News and Knowledge, Phil Fearnley.
"The free BBC Sport Olympics app for UK Android and iOS smartphones ensures that everything you need to keep up-to-date with the action is right there at your fingertips. Even when you're out of range of 3G or wireless, we'll still be able to deliver the latest news to you offline," he added.
The app also features a day-by-day schedule service that allows users to save specific events for viewing.
The Olympics app is currently available as a free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play stores. A version for Windows Phone has also been confirmed for release in the near future.
