That’s really a disappointment to all, even though NBC promised it will make clips and highlights of both ceremonies available online after airing. Fans could then watch clips and highlights of the two ceremonies online, not live stream. Still, NBC tells fans who need to stay up-to-date with live coverage of the ceremonies and competitions that they can look to Twitter, which will provide an Olympics events page with tweets from althletes, families and fans updating in real-time.

But for mobile phone users who would like to know the latest news about the Games and the Games arrangement, and watch London 2012 Olympic Games videos, some mobile phone apps or computer software would be of great help. Today I would like to share some apps with mobile phone users to fully enjoy 2012 Summer Olympic Games on mobile phones.

Users could free download Official London 2012 mobile game app for enjoying.

Well, the above 3 official apps are released by the official website of the London 2012 Olympic Committee to help mobile phones users know everything about the London 2012 games. For more fun and enjoyment, I would like to recommend two media tools bellow, which could help Olympic Games fans to enjoy more Olympic Games videos.

Why recommending this tool? There would be a lot of excellent moments during the Games. Many wonderful video clips would be uploaded to the internet for sharing and enjoying. A Free Online Video Downloader could help you easily download the videos and matches you like to your own computer or mobile phone for unlimited and convenient future review. Also, when you’re using a mobile phone to watch the Games, it would cost your flows greatly. A free video downloading tool would help you save money.  

After we download the excellent video clips of the Games to our computer, a video converter could help us easily convert the downloaded Olympic Games videos to our mobile phones and other portable media players. Thus, we could watch the videos everywhere we like.

Well, I have to say, with these above 5 tools, you can make a better enjoyment of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. They would bring you more fun than the Games itself. But these tools of course are still far from enough for a complete and perfect enjoyment of London 2012 Olympic Games. I would provide more useful tools here for you to enjoy more.

No Doubt – Settle Down lyrics
Get get get in line, and settle down
Get in line, and settle down

What's your twenty? (Do you copy?)
Where's your brain? (Do you copy?)
Checking in to check you out
Concerned about your whereabouts
Copy that, you're acting strange
So tell me what is going on
So heavy I bet

I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
I'm hella positive for real
I'm all good
No I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
It's kind of complicated that's for sure

But you can see it my eyes, you can read on my lips
I'm trying to get a hold on this
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this

Get get get in line, and settle down
Get in line, and settle down

No big deal (I can handle it)
It'll bounce off me (I can handle it)
Been around the block before
Doesn't matter anymore
Here we go again (Are you kidding me?)
Are you insane? (Are you kidding me?)
Underneath the avalanche
So heavy again

I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
I'm hella positive for real
I'm all good
No I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
It's kind of complicated that's for sure

But you can see it my eyes, you can read on my lips
I'm trying to get a hold on this
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this

Get get get in line, and settle down
Get in line, and settle down

I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down
I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down
I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down
I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough

But you can see it my eyes, you can read on my lips
I'm trying to get a hold on this
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this

Gotta get a hold on this
Trying to get a hold on this
Don't get me started
Gotta get a hold on this

Get get get in line, and settle down
Get in line, and settle down

Get get get in line, and settle down
Get in line, and settle down
