NBC releases iPhone/Android apps for the Olympics – live-stream events on the go

NBC Sports and Adobe Systems have teamed up to give fans two apps that stream the Olympics live on mobile devices, record footage for playback, and share the experience through social media.

The apps — a live-streaming app for the more than 3,500 hours of content, and a companion app loaded with additional content launched today. The apps are now available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch via Apple’s App Store, and select Android handset and tablet devices within Google Play. (For Apple users, the apps seems a bit hard to find in iTunes. Get them here and here).

The NBC Olympics Live Extra app features the streaming of all 32 athletic competitions and the awarding of all 302 medals, while the NBC Olympics app provides content like interviews, news stories, highlight videos and live results, according to a joint press release from NBC and Adobe. (It may be confusing because the “Extra” app is actually the live streaming app, while the one with the extras is call the “NBC Olympics” app.)

Learning To Use Adobe Photoshop

I’m super excited to start playing with Photoshop but the darn thing is scary. It comes with 14 separate applications!

I barely know how to use one of these:

Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Builder, Catalyst, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Contribute, Bridge, Device, Extensions, Acrobat, Player, Encoder.

At least they are having fun with single word titles. What about names like Killer, Motherload, Gargamel?

Right now I feel a little lost in all of them. I can barely figure out how to do anything. It feels like I have more skills in Microsoft Paint.

The good news is I am optimistic about my skills. I’ve started learning the names of all 14 apps, which only took me a day. I even created the above graphic as a reward (took two hours).

After that I thought it would be fun to create something simple with basic colors..

Step by step, day by day I will keep getting better. I do love creating things and when I can figure out how to do something it is actually a lot of fun!
