Predict which teams and athletes are going to strike gold this summer and go head to head on Facebook
27th July 2012, London, UK – Samsung, Worldwide Olympic Partner in the wireless communications equipment category, today launched the latest initiative of its Everyone’s Olympic Games campaign by unveiling the Samsung London 2012 Predictor app, providing informative and entertaining Olympic Games content on Android devices, including Samsung’s Olympic Games phone the Galaxy S III.
The new app features a competitive element where friends can challenge each other using Facebook by predicting medal winners in Olympic Games events. The Samsung London 2012 Predictor app contains key information on athletes and teams including their previous performances and career accolades, meaning participants can make an informed judgement when making their predictions on which teams and athletes will enjoy a podium finish. Medal notifications are delivered instantly when an event finishes so those taking part can keep up to date with who got their prediction right and who was left languishing in last place.
