I love the Pope App.
Vatican news and CTV (Catholic TV) have put together a real winner with the Pope app. It’s a great app that follows the pope in detail. It is immersive, and allows you to keep up with the Pope, his messages and his travels. It includes the ability to monitor The Pope’s official Twitter account @pontifex, texts from the Pope, live and recorded videos, and more.
Twitter is one of the Pope Francis’ great methods of communication:
Thank you to Mexico and to all Mexicans. May the Lord and the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe accompany you always.

What Can You Do in the Pope App?
Once you download the free Pope App, you are brought to the latest updates on what the Pope’s activities are. It has one ‘headline’ and an unlimited number of articles to read below.
Clicking on the photo or headline of any of these cards will bring you to the full article. These articles can be bookmarked, font size changed (for easier reading), or shared on social media.
Live Webcams in the Pope App
Who doesn’t love a live webcam. Did you know that St. John Pauls II’s Tomb has a live feed? Neither did I, but it is there. So if you are sitting around wondering what’s happening in the Vatican right now, you can grab the Pope App and it will show you a great shot from above St. Peter’s square.
Best of all the Pope App is Free!
That’s right, I love free Catholic Apps, this is one of them. It’s well done, and after being a few years old, it has had time to mature into a great app.
