    I just got this awesome idea- an Olympic Medal Count widget! If someone can make this, it will be much appreciated!!! ;D

    Table format:

    I actually just posted a comparison on my site of the Olympic-themed apps available on the App Store. I'd have to say SportsTap, though. It does it all well and it's free.

    Not technically a widget and only for US residents, but NBC's mobile Olympics page does the job for me (mobile.nbcolympics.com).

    Some people don't realise you can add an icon to your iPhone homepage at the same time you make bookmarks. I just went to the official medal count in Safari, hit the + to make a book mark, then hit 'Add to home page'. From that page you can navigate actual results. If you're interested in a specific stat or result, you can add those as well, such as USA gold medals, or all olympic/world records in swimming.

    I don't understand why you'd want a medal tracking app given that you can do this.

    If you consider a silver or bronze the same as a gold, sure... ;)
