So the Vatican puts out a new app called “The Pope App”, specifically put out by the Pontificium Consilium de Communicationibus Socialibus.

What is amazing is that it doesn’t suck. In fact it is quite well done. Just from a design perspective it is clean and functional. I totally agree with Thomas L. McDonald’s review which also includes some screenshots.

It has the following sections:

  • Live – Video streaming of some live events.
  • From the Pope – Angelus, Homilies, General Audiences, etc.
  • News
  • Images
  • Video – Archived video of Papal events
  • Webcams – Yes Vatican webcams.
  • Vaticano – Links to the Pope’s Twitter feed along with other related links.

My only real critique is that for something called “The Pope App” I would think a basic biography of the Pope would be in order and maybe something about the Papacy itself. Although this is a “preaching to the choir app”, so maybe this is not necessary.

Must have for pAPPists.

  1. Read about this myself earlier today. Was impressed with what it has to offer. Unfortunately, I have to wait as the app for android won’t be out for about a month. Guess I’ll have to offer the wait up as a penance.

  2. (((An app focused on the figure of His Holiness Benedict XVI. It will allow you to follow his events live and to set up alerts notifying you when papal events begin.)))

Those who want to be come butt members must have been a cat lick in the real world for at least thirteen years of faithful service cause we only recruit the best stock hers. As a matter of fact some of our spiritual reality church cells members are at work ask we speak and there won’t be no more discrimi nation between men and wo man cause if a wo man wants to be in the front line of our church so be “IT”.
