A good start
Within app there is limited news and event schedule in my time zone, unfortunately schedule only shows event name, not sport. Sometimes you can guess. If not, clicking on event name takes you to the Sochi2014 website for info. That's a recurring theme, and real failing of this app, most of details are shown by opening yet another Safari tab. Even a browser built into the app is better than that, but just showing browser either way is pretty lame. I'm giving this 3 stars for the schedule listing. The app is a decent start, but still a long way to go before this gets another star.
Informative and enjoyable
The events have links to web pages that show when it starts according to your time zone. The option to look up past Olympic results and history is nice too.
Definitely not worth just one star
People have given this app scathing reviews, but it's really not so bad. Of course, it could definitely use some improvement, but it is no way a completely unusable app.
