    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.

    I take it there is still no app for the 2011 TdF? I haven't found anything yet.

    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.... :(

    When I follow the link to the iPad app from nbcsports, iTunes opens up to get an app and then this msg appears:

    [​IMG]

    When I search the app store for the iTV live tour app, it finds nothing.

    This page seems to indicate there is a live view mobile app for the iPad for $14.95 and a web-based app for $29.95.

    I'm not clear on the difference except that the iPad app does not yet exist, afaik.

    In Australia SBS television has released a Tour app. It looks good. SBS provide wonderful coverage of the race. I don't know if this app is available outside of Australia.

    Well the VS/NBC All Access iPad app was released last night I guess. Was able to download. And yes, the in app purchase to get live video feed is indeed $15 - which is way more reasonable than $30 (which I guess is the web version price).

    Of course - there has to be a catch! If you get the app (free) on both your iPad and iPhone, and do the in-app purchase on the iPad, it doesn't get recognized in your iPhone as purchased - like a regularly purchased app. Should have known they'd do something like this.

    Yay! Finally got the iPad app and did the in-app purchase. Hope it lives up to its promise. I don't have an iPhone so I don't have that issue.

    Wonder why the web version is twice the price of the iPad version?

    Does anyone have any luck downloading this in Canada ?

    Been trying to get the iPad app but keep getting error message saying not found. Wondering if I should bite the bullet for the all access $30 option ?

    For those that have d/l the app already is the format layout good / different than the all access download ?

    Tour Fever here we come.......:p

    How are you trying to get the iPad app? Via iTunes on your computer or via the iPad itself? I finally had success using the iPad and the App Store app.

    Maybe it's a location restriction thing? I wish I knew what to tell you.

    Search for ITV tour live. Maybe that will work for you. It's not available in the USA.
