The Pope App

Ever wish you could know more about what the Pope’s life was like? Or maybe you wish you knew about all his travels, pilgramages, visitations and events?

Many people all over the world follow the Pope on websites like Twitter, but the faithful are about to feel closer to the Holy Father than ever before.

The Vatican just released a new app for Catholics that tells you everything about the Pope. It allows you to follow his events live and to set up alerts notifying you when papal events begin.

It will also give you access to all official papal-related content in a variety of formats: news and official speeches, galleries with the latest images and videos, access to his calendar, and links to other services of the Holy See.

Additionally, the app will let you see key areas of the Vatican through webcams distributed throughout St. Peter’s Square that are always broadcasting images.

The app, called “The Pope App” is available now in both the iTunes App Store, and Google Play.
