Meet the Pope App, courtesy of the Vatican. Catholics around the world will soon have a new way to bring themselves closer to their faith. The Vatican will soon be releasing a new application that will allow users to view stories related to activities in the Vatican and video of papal events. The application will send out alerts and news links to reports from Vatican news outlets, as well as video of papal events, streams from Vatican webcams and archived media featuring Pope Benedict XVI.

The Pope App will be ready for iPhones and iPads on December 10, with an Android version coming in January 2013.
