    I've been looking...is there a Tour de France app that will give us up to day info on how the race is going? (Yeah I know it doesn't start until July....I'm just getting ready.)

    I don't want a TdF game, rather a news feed, streaming video, etc once the TdF starts.

    Is this too much to hope for?

    Thanks.

    Yub. Check out one of then many news feeds.. I think CNN will let you set auto updates on any topic. I do it on my iPhone but haven't tried it on the pad, but it should work in any case

    Hey,
    I just released an app yesterday on the AppStore. It's not really what you're looking for but maybe some other people can find it interesting. The link for it is: itunes.apple.com/fr/app/tour-france-2010-le-guide/id376427205?mt=8

    It's more like a stages guide for people who wanna attend the event this summer. For each stages it gives you some piece of information like time schedule for the caravane, start and finish, location on Google Maps for start and finish and all the highlights of the race (sprints, summits) and some details about the start and finish cities.

    Thank you. From the description it looks like a great app to get background info on the stages. I'll download it. I wrote the TdF asking for an app and received a very polite reply of "Non." Sigh. Its my favorite summer event I want to take it with me.

    THanks.

    Been looking in app store daily yet nothing... I knew the NBC takeover of VS would screw us over!! :-s

    Even the @vscycling twitter page (nbcsports really) claims the app is available, but it's not... They just want us to sign up for their ridiculously overpriced "All Access" bs...

    Hmm. Well, if I sign up for all access, will I get live streaming video of the TdF? For about the same price I can upgrade my Dish subscription and get Versus and watch it on TV.

    Not sure which way to go.

    Found a cheap ($0.99) app for the TdF by 'Echoman PTY LTD' in the app store... No live video, but it's also not $ 30 ;)

    There does seem to be an "official" TdF out there, but looks like it's blocked in US app store.... :(
