    This app is probably the best built app for BB10. It's insanely smooth.
    You can even scroll both menus smoothly. When in the middle of swiping to the side for the Sochi 2014 menu.
    I wish BB10 itself (hub for example)was as smooth as the app.

    Who made the app? It says the dev is "Sochi 2014" but it must of been someone from BlackBerry :P

    It's really well made.

    I love how it updates events in my calendar.

    Also live updates at the top bar is really nice.

    Great app!

    it's because you are on 10.1, it needs at least 10.2 to run. I'm running 10.2.1 on my Q10

    Most of the new app in the app world need at least 10.2 to run now. There is many ways on this forum to get the official latest update on your phone if you haven't yet.

    1925 is official it's what every carrier is using in every country..

    I'm surprised that there is people still on 10.1 there has been 2 big updates to every carrier since then.

    The Sochi app is definitely one of the better looking apps for BB10 but it is far from the best app overall. The gestures that I'm used to using to quickly navigate around BB10 apps don't function in the same way in the Sochi app. And when viewing, for example, the stats for a hockey game there are some fields that are wider than the screen. This is not a problem in itself but when trying to scroll the stats to the right it activates the open tabs gesture, making it very difficult to use. I will also make the point that it doesn't actually meet the requirements of the built for BlackBerry program but that doesn't really matter as I understand why it got that designation.

    Overall I do like the app. I use it everyday to keep up to date with the Olympics. I just feel it's a pretty big stretch to call it the best app for BB10 (right now anyways, it may get better).

    -It's gotta be top 5 best built apps for BB10.
    The look isn't clunky like the standard look.
    -The menu transitions is better then even the hub gestures itself. I can actually scroll through 2 menus at once like peeking into the hub but instead of just scrolling the HUB
    -headless
    -live updates 24/7
    -calendar integration
    -smooth no studder not even loading youtube you anything

    I can't even think of a function that it's missing, which I'm usually unsatisfied and always wanting more features

    From all the paid apps I have this wrecks them in functionality (no disrespect to the devs)

    It's a very nice build smooth app. However iv selected a few hockey games to see what the final score is and doesn?t display anything in the results. Some it does and some it doesn't. For results that is.
