    Just saw the official Sochi Olympics App pop up. To my surprise it's a native BB10 app.

    Oh, and one more thing...

    GO CANADA GO!

    Sochi 2014 - BlackBerry World

    Wow, it does seem of a very high quality, but when the permissions pop-up suddenly stated
    "MoriartyWorks by Xomo Digital Inc."
    I was a bit confused. :s
    (It is not listed on the official Sochi website yet, but Xomo Digital/Eventbase seems to be an official developer...)

    It does offer a lot of information, and seems to integrate with BB10 flawlessly!

    That is awesome. So nice to have an official app available to BB10. It looks to be a really well made app.

    Yeah I really like that too. So used to seeing it in black. Didn't realize it could be changed.

    anyone know why this app is headless?

    Good question, sent an email to the developers to ask what functions need to run in the background.
    For now I can see that the app is almost always idle. So even if it does run, it does not seem to do anything on my end (0 cpu, 0 data usage, just 1mb RAM).

    It appears to have the ability to sync the favorite events schedule with your calendar. Considering the event schedules are ever changing, it must monitor event schedule changes and revises you calender as it does. I think it works similar to the way BlackBerry travel works, which is also headless. Dunno, just my theory

    Doesn't matter. Still a great app.

    Wish more developers would try a colourful version of their apps

    Yeah, the colour scheme really fits in with the rest of the Sochi designs. I mostly prefer darker toned apps, but for something like this a bright theme works great!

    Yet another useless app for those of us with obsolete BB10 devices in the USA.

    WHERE's the 10.2 UPDATE T-Mobile!?????

    On my Z30 this app shows a weird greek-type font. I can't find anything in settings to change it.

    That's definitely weird. You're right that there doesn't seem to be any setting in the app that impacts font.

    Tried playing around with system font size and couldn't really reproduce your issue. Have you tried deleting the app and reinstalling? If not, I'd contact the developer.

    Un+Re-installed several times. No change. Oh well, it's readable at least. I'll try developer when closer to O ceremonies.

    The app runs in headless mode for push notifications. During the Olympics you can enable (in the Settings) to receive push notifications about favourite Athletes, Sports or Countries. (Medal notifications)
    MrGlenn and aminrajabi like this.

    That's a problem with the OS version - please update your BB OS
    Please try to upgrade to 10.2.0.429
