PreCentral: Keep up to date with the London 2012 Olympics with your webOS smartphone

Keep up to date with the London 2012 Olympics on the go on your webOS smartphone

With the current not-great state of the webOS App Catalog and the unsurprisingly dwindling userbase, it's not at all unexpected that nobody went out of their way to create an official or unofficial webOS app for the London 2012 Olympic Games. These Olympic games kicked off today (soccer takes time, the opening ceremony isn't for two more days), and even though there's no app, you can still get yourself some Olympic coverage on the go via your webOS smartphone.

Frustratingly, even though NBC secured a multi-billion-dollar multi-year contract to broadcast the Olympics and opted to put every single event live online (so long as you have a valid subscription to a partner cable or satellite service), those streams aren't available on webOS smartphones or tablets. And it's Flash, which our devices actually support. Granted, they're using a custom version of the YouTube app to stream these live feeds (it's quite nice, with down-to-the-second fine scrubbing), and the webOS-compatible version of Flash wasn't great to begin with and hasn't been updated for well over a year. But still!

We digress and set forth for a solution. Unable to watch the streams at all (unless you want to set up some manner of remote desktop app, but that seems to be overkill in our eyes), we'd at least like to keep tabs on what's going on, who's scored what, and how far ahead Team USA is in the medal race. For that we turn to a free app that's been around for a good long time:

Recently added to ScoreCenter's options under mySports in the app's settings is a 2012 Summer Olympics choice. As with the other options in ESPN ScoreCenter, 2012 Summer Olympics adds a page in their left-right swipe panels that gives you the latest scores, upcoming events schedule, general Olympics news, and a breakdown of the overall medal count. The scores and schedule are broken down by sport, with thirty-three options at your disposal, from archery to BMX to fencing to synchronized swimming. If there's a competition happening in London this summer, it's available in ESPN ScoreCenter.

To add the Olympics to your selections in , just tap the gear icon in the bottom left corner of the app, select mySports, tap 'Add a Sport', and select Olympics. From there you'll have an extra bright blue panel with all the Olympic news, scores, and medal counts that you can handle.

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin

      I bought LG smart tv. for some reason region selected was Africa and could only choose from african countries and had very little available apps in content store. I live in Georgia, so figured that  changing region to EU would help so changed it to 3122 and selected service country UK because Georgia was not in the list. after that every app says that it is not available in current country. I have  default region code saved so I guess could go back but wondering if any one can help me to get it working in EU. or if anyone have region code in which Georgia is available it will be helpful as well.

      Hi, I've been trying to make a shortcut for turning off the screen. I managed to replace the prime video button on the magic remote to run youtube, now I've got the other keys for extra modification.
      My question is, can I find an app that can be used as a shortcut to turn off screen, or do I have to make it myself? And if so, how?
