New smart phone app launched for WYD Rio 2013

.- Organizers for World Youth Day Rio 2013 have launched a new app allowing users to track the WYD Pilgrim Cross and Icon of the Virgin Mary as they make their way around Brazil.

Both the cross and the icon have been in Brazil since Sept. 18 of last year and are visiting each diocese in Brazil as well as dioceses in the surrounding countries of Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Paraguay in preparation for the event next summer.

The free app, called “Follow the Cross,” is available for iPhones, iPods, iPads and Android phones. It was created by the Information Technology Department of the Catholic communion Cancion Nueva and allows users to interact with the friends on Twitter and Facebook as well.

iPhone, iPod and iPad users can download the app here, and Android users can find it here.
