Satifactory - But Fidelity?
I enjoy the features on here and think its adequate to get me to be able to see the "Habemus Papam" live as it happens. Even though I'm in a Catholic High school I doubt they'll take the time to let us watch it live and doubt if they had the resources to do so. So its great to have an app with 24/7 coverage to capture that moment when it happens!
I question the fidelity of its creators because the Register and the Reporter are put on equal par, when they aren't. I understand the need for not being biased but truly the UNfaithful don't count as a valid Catholic school of opinion!
Clean and simple
Great looking app to keep me up to date and engaged with the Pope selection. Now if only the Cardinals could agree on a start date for the Conclave...
No push notifications for White Smoke
Would definitely prefer a notification for white smoke or black smoke or any other conclave news. The app itself is nice, but this is a big gap that I'm sure others would appreciate.
