The Olympics, Office Jerk, Pimp My Hair and more on this week’s top free iOS apps

With the Olympics starting in less than a week, Olympic themed apps are starting to do very well on the free app charts. NBC’s NBC Olympics Live Extra goes the distance this week, taking the No. 11 spot on the iPhone charts and the No. 1 spot on the iPad charts, while the official app, London 2012: Official Results App takes the No. 11 spot on the iPad charts. Canadian developer Fluik also gets in on the fun, with its title Office Jerk Summer Games Edition taking the No. 7 spot on the free iPhone app charts.

Aside from sports and olympic themed apps, Iddiction’s Pimp My Hair performed well this week, hitting No. 5 on the free app charts after a feature on the company’s App-o-Day service.
