Conclave App

in The Pope

Just wanted to let folks know about a neat little app that Logos Bible Software has just released to help Catholics (and others) learn about the upcoming conclave.

The app is FREE and is available both for iOS (iPhone/Pod/Pad) and Android.

They really rushed to get it out so that we’d have it in time for the conclave, and I know people at Logos who spent long nights getting it ready.

It’s got some really cool features and material (including some by yours truly).

Here’s a description of the app:

Your free mobile hub for conclave news

Conclave is a free app that keeps you up to date on the papal election.

  • Be among the first to see the white smoke rise—watch the live video feed from St. Peter’s Square.
  • Learn about the cardinals in the conclave—115 electors, and 1 future pope.
  • Read the official documents instating, defining, and amending the conclave’s process.
  • Follow key Catholic sources and authorities like The National Catholic Register and Jimmy Akin.
  • See what Twitter has to say about the conclave

Enjoy!

The permissions (internet access) are the minimum needed to make this work eg it does not want to know my phone ID, read my contacts etc.. as many free apps do.
 
Seems to be a good compilation of many internet sources giving some background.
 
We should use this as a reminder to pray for the cardinal electors.
 
No tweets from cardinals in the conclave.
 
The only thing missing is an alarm saying “Habemus Papam!”

“This app requires iOS 6.”

Is there away that it can alert us when we have a new Pope?

So where’s the android app? I hope they port it quickly.
