Visitors to Scotland’s biggest ever sporting and cultural festival can have a personal guide to the Games at their fingertips - thanks to the launch of two mobile apps.
The Glasgow 2014 “My Games” app provides visitors and spectators with a host of information for exploring the city, venues and all the sporting action while the Glasgow 2014 Results App keeps fans up to date with all the results and medal tables across the 17 sports. Both are available for iOS and Android.
With the My Games app, visitors can:
- see the full schedule for the 11 days, incorporating all sporting events and Festival 2014 cultural programme listings
- create a personalised Games itinerary
- access maps and transport information for key venues
- find listings on shopping, food, drink and cultural venues.
With the Results App, users can follow the medal journey of their favourite nations, sports and athletes in real time so they don’t miss out on their Games achievements.
Helpful notifications from the My Games app will also remind people to tune in for specific events such as the Opening Ceremony and sporting finals.
Paul Giblin, Senior Digital Manager for Glasgow 2014, said:
“With more than 1 million ticketholders expected to enjoy the city in the coming days, these new apps are the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Games on the move, explore the host city and stay up to date with Scotland’s largest ever sporting festival.”
