Follow The French Open with the official Roland Garros app

As is common with every modern sporting event nowadays, there’s an accompanying app for fans. The French Open is no exception. Officially titled ‘Roland-Garros 2011 – French Open, ’ the app is available across all iOS devices. This means no matter where you are you’ll have the latest scores at your fingertips.

The feature list is as expected:

  • Real-time scores, point by point
  • Live text matches and video highlight roundups
  • News, photo galleries, interviews and behind-the-scenes coverage
  • Competition results and future round draws
  • Player biographies
  • Visitors’ guide and stadium maps

It’s available in two languages (French and English).

When it comes to downsides, it’s a shame the live match coverage is limited to text (presumably because of TV rights issues), but it’s handy for an overview of concurrently running matches – switching between video feeds would drain the battery and take longer to load.

Regarding video highlights and recordings, you’re stuck with a complete overview of the day’s matches rather than being able to choose individual match highlights. The functionality is basic, but it’s a quicker way than searching through Safari for results.

On the plus side, it’s completely free and works great on both the iPhone and iPad.

Oooo La La.
