NBC Universal has recently released a pair of apps for iOS devices. The apps include NBC Olympics and NBC Olympics Live Olympics. Each of these apps are universal which means they will each run equally nice on the iPhone (or iPod touch) as well as the iPad. The apps are free to download and free to use, however they do each require iOS 5.0 or later for use. Simply put — these apps will allow you to follow and watch more of the Olympics than physically possibly by any one person. That thought aside though, here is how each of the two apps are described.
