The top 5 iPhone and Android apps for the Pan Am Games in Toronto

There is a lot happening during the Pan Am Games, and it can be difficult to keep up with it all. But if you have a smartphone, you don't have to worry: there's an app for that.

Here are five apps to check out if you want to stay informed during the Pan Am Games this summer in Toronto.

Toronto 2015 (Iphone, Android)
This is the official app for the Pan Am Games. It's basically a one-stop shop for information when the Pan Am torch will be coming to town, a daily schedule of the games, a calendar of Panamania events, and a social media page. You can even purchase tickets directly from the app. It's colourful and extremely easy to navigate.

Pan Am Path (Iphone, Android)
For those who want to experience Toronto's culture as much as its sport, this is the app for you. It maps out the Pan Am Path and the activities/festivals that are happening along the way. Many of the events have already taken place, but there are a few happening throughout the months of July and August. For a special treat, they've included four music playlists to keep you motivated.

Toronto 2015 Trip Planner (Iphone, Android)
This is an offset of the Toronto 2015 app designed specifically for commuters. With all of the Pan Am venues pre-set as destinations, it is easy to figure out the best route to the Games. Aside from showing traffic and construction, the app will also indicate whether or not there is parking close to the destination. One of the best features is the "drive mode," which allows you to hear audio alerts.

Medalloid (Iphone)
This social media aggregator was created specifically for the Pan Am Games; although the developer hopes to keep it active for future international sporting events. Medalloid offers a more personalized way of keeping up with sports by following the Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram posts of thousands of athletes. Users can then follow the activity of specific countries or spots. It also has medal listings.

Go Team Canada (Iphone)
This app follows everything to do with Canadian athletes. Go Team Canada compiles articles from all sorts of news sources, from the Toronto Star to the Orangeville Banner, giving you a bit of everything. It also has a fancy countdown to the games. The fan page is a little sad - it appears only two people have ever visited - but who knows, maybe it just needs the Pan Am audience?
