2014-07-12

The Vatican has released a new version of the 'Pope App' so that anyone with a cell phone can keep up with Pope Francis. 

It has a new design that makes it a lot easier to read speeches. It even allows users to highlight some of the text, share it or save it to read it later. 

Everything from the Pope's tweets to his homilies are available. One can also download live images, like the Pope's weekly general audience in the Square or the Sunday Angelus. 

It's also connected to six Vatican webcams that include the tomb of St. John Paul II and other sites around St. Peter's Square. 

The application is available in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.
