If you've got Olympic fever, the only prescription is more cowbell. Sadly, everyone's favourite bovine soundtrack to downhill skiing weighs a ton and is tricky to sneak through airport security - unlike this lightweight, low priced app.

Simply skin the virtual cowbell with the national flag of your choice

and shake your iPhone in the air to recreate the authentic atmosphere of Team GB finishing second to last in the giant slalom, just ahead of Western Samoa.

As well as the cowbell, you get a full schedule of Winter Olympic events, a handy Twitter feed of dozens of Olympic athletes, media outlets and bloggers, and a live medal table (where they haven't even bothered to include Team GB - although Kazakhstan gets a place).

There's even a 'live wall' where you can post comments and photos, and simultaneously post them to Facebook or Twitter. Overall, Cowbell 2010 might not be the ultimate Winter Olympics app for hardcore snowsports fans, but it'll make an excellent sonic impression if you happen to be in the pub - or are lucky enough to be in Vancouver - when the Games are on.
