Michele English, Acting President of Flow stated, “This is a proud moment for us at Flow, considering this has come literally on the first day of the 2016 Olympic Games. To actually be in the trending category alone counts as a major accomplishment, to be second place to Pokemon Go, which is also the #1 trending search for iOS is beyond impressive.

Our goal is to continue to delight our customers with innovations such as the FlowRio2016Extra App and we are thrilled that they are responding to the investments to serve them better.”  According to English, “the downloads have so far exceeded our initial expectations, and as the Olympic Games progress and more of our Caribbean athletes spring into action, we anticipate even more activity, more searches and in effect more downloads.” Downloads are free to everyone, however, Flow customers have the added benefit of watching the live streams.

For English, the rating has taken on additional significance for the brand in light of the mammoth task the company has undertaken to prioritize and transform the customer experience. “As we place the customer at the heart of everything we do, we aim to complement, empower and enhance the consumers’ ever-evolving lifestyle,” English also said.

Olympic fans have been gravitating to the FlowRio2016Extra App because of its ease, convenience and complete access to all things Olympics, wherever and whenever the consumer wants. The FlowRio2016Extra App allows the user complete freedom to carry on with life as usual even while enjoying the Games and not be restricted to the confines of the living room sofa.

The FlowRio2016Extra App has amazing features including multiple camera angles, giving viewers a sense of actually being up front and center at all events across all 32 Olympic venues in Rio de Janeiro.
