Iacopo BarberiniiGPII“The idea was born two years ago. We began to consider what information, news or features might be of interest to those involved in World Youth Day.”Downloading the app costs around five dollars, which will fund projects for the John Paul II Foundation for youth. The money will be used to help others attend WYD, among other things. Iacopo BarberiniiGPII“We wanted to do something for young people who are in worse situations than young Europeans, so that they could also participate in the World Youth Day.”The application will allow for immediate access to World Youth Day news, photos and video on Benedict XVI and John Paul II. You can also better position yourself for the events in Madrid and find your friends, wherever they may be.Iacopo BarberiniiGPII“We developed the application called ?find your friends?, which also can be used to find your group?s leader if you?ve gotten lost.”It also has a guide to Madrid with a list of restaurants involved with WYD, as well as all the key places for events. It even includes the contact information of several volunteers who can answer all types of questions. The app will even help the most prepared pilgrims for Madrid?s World Youth Day 2011.
