Samsung released an Android app that will help you feel the spirit of the upcoming Olympic games (which start on July 27). It’s called Samsung: Take Part 2012 and offers tours of the Olympic venues, info on the UK, the latest news and it will even let you participate. Of course, we are not talking taking part in the real games but at least in the augmented reality games.
Take Part 2012 features 360-degree panoramas the venues of the games and the Top 10 list of British attraction (according to David Beckham), so you can check them out in your spare time.
The game will also let you play a number of games – 100m Sprint, 110m hurdles, 100m freestyle swimming and double-trap shooting, plus Penalty Kicks and Archery augmented reality (owners of the latest Galaxy phones are promised HD graphics). For each game there will be both individual and country leader boards.
Each day there will be news and polls about the games. The polls will show you what people around the world think.
This being a promo app, it will also include a tour of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung’s Olympic Games Phone.
If it sounds interesting, you can grab the app for free from the Play Store.
