Coming in January: The St. Francis App

While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.

–St. Francis of Assisi

The new St. Francis App—the first app dedicated to the saint of Assisi—will be available for download in January.

The app was presented to the media in Assisi on December 7, at the Papal Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels in Portiuncula, during an international exhibition of Nativity scenes.

Developed by the Italian company Matitegiovanotte in collaboration with the Friars Minor of Assisi, the St. Francis App is currently downloadable only for Android, at a cost of € 0.89 (roughly $1.21 in U.S. dodllars),  In January, it will be available for the iPhone.  English and Spanish language versions will also be released next month.

The St. Francis App will feature “365 Days with St. Francis”, a daily meditation from the saint:  a reflection from Francis himself, a short story or a prayer.  Also included are hundreds of images of Francis, of the places where he lived, his miracles, and the mystical moments of his life as depicted in art.

The official website features a video which, while still in Italian, gives you an idea of the app’s unique features.

    This App was listed finally in iTunes, and dowloaded it because it said it supported English. BUT found it is only currently in Italian. Contacted the developer but no response. Hope they can fix it.
