Balance Mobile Site Puts Spotlight on Alberta Olympians

Getting info about Alberta athletes, artists, events and news at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics is now made easy through a mobile website developed by Balance Media.

Only accessible through mobile devices (think iPhone & BlackBerry), the site provides news about the Albertans at the games, their stats and biographies. An events schedule lets you know when they’ll be where, and maps show you exactly where to find them at each event venue.

For iPhone app addicts, development partners Fission Media have developed a free app with similar functionality. Search AB to 2010 on the iPhone app store to find it.

Balance is excited about highlighting Alberta’s best (and the Olympics!!), and especially about the potential surrounding the use of mobile websites for other events in the future.

The project was funded by Winsport and the Alberta Government.
