Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Vatican Radio presents its App for iPhone with a strong multimedia identity.
News, editorials, live videos, web text, audio channels, all contained in a single app
that lets you follow the Pope’s activities in real time.
The App is free of charge and the initial version is available in English and Italian.
The application opens onto the Agenda of the Pope’s public appointments. A system called Vatican TIC, devised and produced by Vatican Radio, lets you access all the text and audio content associated with each event. The Agenda tells you in real time about papal celebrations broadcast live and produced in collaboration with the Vatican Television Centre. The texts of the Pope’s discourses are also available, as published on www.vatican.va.
The App also offers a News service that includes the latest information concerning the Church and the World, broadcast by Vatican Radio’s news programmes. The Radio section contains five audio channels corresponding to the network of over 70 daily programmes in 40 languages produced by Vatican Radio. The same channels are used for FM, AM, Short Wave and Satellite broadcasts.
This is Vatican Radio’s first version of this App. We promise to continue doing our best to improve and update. Stay with us.
Please fix the webcams.
I enjoy this app especially checking out what's happening at the Vatican. The webcams have looked like they've needed cleaning for awhile but now aren't working at all. Please fix them. It is so nice to feel connected to Rome and our Pope!
This app is flawed from the start when one cannot listen to the content in the background, and no other functions are possible without loss of audio programming. Maybe a year from today 9-6-13 it will work?....... A 3 out of 10.
I like it.
Live stuff that I would not have been able to see otherwise.
