Best Apps for RIO Olympics 2016


Olympics 2016 begins today! The Games will last more than 2 weeks ending on August 21st. More than 11,000 athletes will compete (and, if you ask me they’re all BAMF’s, female or not.)

The Games are being broadcast exclusively on NBC, but if you’re like me, you’re not around your TV all day. If  you want to stay caught up on all the amazing things that happen you’ll want to download some apps!

The following are all apps I’ve downloaded and tried out! The first and last are my favs.



If you download ONE app, this is the one! It’s the NBC Universal – RIO 2016 App. It’s a FREE app that includes the schedule, highlights, athlete bios and coverage of the Olympic trials w/ expert analysis of the events.

They’ll send alerts to your phone whenever something big is happening so you can always stay caught up on events, specific athletes and medal ceremonies!



Want specifics on TEAM USA??? Download the App!

This app includes in-depth profiles of your favorite athletes & real time results. SO, if you want the deets on Michael Phelps (swimming), Simone Biles (gymnastics), Lolo Jones (track and field) or Abby Johnston (diving). This is the place.



Want to never stop watching the Olympics?

The NBC SPORTS app will provide all 6,755 hours of Olympic programming.




Want to dig deep into Olympic’s past?

Download the OLYMPICS app to relive the trials and triumphs of Olympics pasts.




EMOJI’S!!!! I love emoji’s this app has some extra special RIO Olympic’s ones! My husband really loves it when I send him “Go For The GOLD” non-stop.

My only worry about this app is that you have to “allow full access.” So, if you’re worried about someone stealing any super secret info you may have in your phone. Think twice before downloading.FullSizeRender (3)

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Here's a little bit about me. I'm a reporter, producer and promoter of all things female. Bridging the gap between how men and women are treated in the world is something I'm passionate about. I'm originally from Saratoga Springs, NY. I studied Journalism and Spanish at the University of Minnesota and rowed Division-1. In 2007, my crew of incredibly strong women and I won an NCAA Championship. I love sharing stories, traveling and being active in the community. My husband and I live near Manhattan Beach, CA with our two cats whom we are both obsessed with.
