What's New in Version 2.0.9
Optimization to twitter sharing in the news section
What I've been looking for!
Great UI and the chance to see Pope Francis' social media messages without getting bogged down by the Twitter app. Love the daily homilies. Please keep this app going!
Great app for keeping with the Vatican
Works great but the last week the news feeds stopped
Works now-Thank You!
March 13, 2016: I continue to use this app almost daily and rely on it for news from the Vatican. However, for the past week or so, once again on my iPad the only news item that shows up is the main new news item and the rest of the window is blank white. I tried reloading the app & it didn't help. No problem on my iPhone but I prefer using an iPad for this app. Thanks for taking a look at it.
Thanks for the nice Christmas present of the fixed app! Works great on my iPad again.
Ever since your update the news won't load on my iPad. The screen where the news should be stays white. I tried to type this review to give you feedback from my iPad but I couldn't submit from the iPad. Everything seems to work fine on my iPhone though. Hope you can fix this soon. I love the app and use it daily--on my iPad. Thanks.
