Exciting news! Science Olympiad has developed and released a mobile app for the first time! This app includes a number of resources, but the primary focus is a mobile platform for the official rules. There are separate versions for each Division B and Division C. They have some additional functionality, such as direct access to event resources. The app is available now on both the iOS app store and the Google play store for Android devices for 3.99. The easiest way to find it will be to search for SO Mobile B and SO Mobile C. I will post links shortly as well for those that prefer that route.
We're really excited about sharing the app with everyone and would love any and all feedback!

No, this is an official Science Olympiad, Inc product. It's something that has been talked about a lot in the past, but is finally here!

Cool. I don't particularly understand all of this newfangled telephone business, but is there any possibility of making this available, should it take off, for Windows phones, too, in the future?

I'm not making any commitments or claiming an official position, but alternative platforms are certainly possible depending on popularity and demand.

Yes. The only reason we didn't was there is a nominal cost associated with putting it in the Windows App store and we weren't sure there was significant interest. If there appears to be enough demand, we can do that relativity quickly.

FYI, we've dropped the price of the app to $0.99 as an 'end of season sale'.
