The iLondon 2012 app delivers updated medal standings, event news and a list of venues with directions to them.

2012 Summer Games London Offline is a helpful app that won’t bust your budget. The iPhone and iPad app fromTidels opens with a countdown to the Olympics. From here, you can use the app to learn about a variety of different sports and find out where and when they are happening and as well as how many athletes are taking part. Additionally, you can study up on the different venues, including the new Olympic Stadium.

And as the name suggests, it works offline suggesting to me you are loading static data onto your device. The review suggests the app is sluggish and incomplete.

London 2012: Official Join In App (iOS/Android/Blackberry)
