As part of its involvement in the South Korean Winter Olympics, Samsung has announced the general availability of the official PyeongChang 2018 app. The aim of the app is to enhance the Olympic Winter Games experience “ensuring smarter communications and smoother wireless operations during the Olympic Games.”
Younghee Lee, CMO and Executive Vice President, Samsung Electronics, said:
“As part of our commitment to creating an enjoyable Olympic Winter Games experience for athletes, fans, and consumers, we’re proud to create connections, and to help share the Olympic Spirit around the world. Through our innovative technology advancements, our goal is to contribute to a meaningful and unforgettable experience for all.”
The app will help fans keep a tab on the games by providing a trove of information; for example, you can get real-time updates, athlete and sports information, medal standings, and any records that have been set in the Olympic or Paralympic games.
For those attending the games there’s a dedicated section that contains all the important information you’ll need to know such as what transport you can take to get to the venues you’ve got tickets for and information about accommodation. Additionally, there’s an interesting exploration section to help make the most out of your visit to Korea.
