Toughturtle LLC Announces Their Free Olympic iPhone App

February 8, 2010 in Sports (E)

[] New York, NY - Toughturtle LLC, a developer of innovative solutions for the Internet and for the iPhone, has recently released 'Winter 2010', a new iPhone and iPod Touch App that is already being touted as the 'go-to' App for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. Winter 2010 has all the features that an Olympic App should have, and so much more.

Winter 2010 has up-to-the-minute news and information from an extensive list of providers, so you know that you have everything you need to stay on top of the Vancouver Games. The App also comes with a complete Event schedule, Sport Details, and a multi-tiered Medal tracker. Toughturtle takes Medal Trackers even farther with configurable Push Notifications. This enables the user to receive instant medals results by winning Country or by the individual Sport.

"Back in 2008 when the App Store came onto the scene, Toughturtle delivered the first iPhone App for the Beijing Summer Games called iOlympics.", said Todd Barnes, Lead Developer at Toughturtle LLC. "iOlympics was very popular and we were hoping to re-release under that same name, but we ran into a trademark issue and went with 'Winter 2010' instead. Winter 2010 delivers everything you need to keep up with the Games, and the added Push Notifications really make this App an incredible piece of software... especially with the FREE price point"
