New iGPII app for pilgrims on WYD

The new iGPII app for World Youth Day will provide its participants with an events program and timetable, GPS positioning through “Friend Finder,” information on food and accommodations, and documents containing the history of previous World Youth Days. It will work on iPhones, iPods, iPads and other devices running the iOS operating system.

The app will cost $4.99 from the Apple Store. Proceeds will help young people from developing countries get to Madrid and future World Youth Day celebrations, according to Catholic News Service.
