I bet you thought you had downloaded every application you could possibly want for that new iPhone of yours. Youtube? Check. Roman Catholic Calendar? Check. Urbanspoon (restaurant finder)? Check. Divine Office? Check. BubbleWrap (I'm not making that up)? Check. iZen garden? Oh, wait, that's for a different blog crowd.
Well, here's a new app you may not have yet. The Archdiocese of New Orleans has launched iFaith, an iPhone application that will let you tap into all of the latest Catholic news and events happening in and around the Big Easy. At this point, iFaith will feature archdiocesan news headlines and will allow users to view the latest episodes of Issues & Faith, the archdiocesan TV show, and tune into podcasts of Archbishop Alfred Hughes' homilies.
And unlike things like iFitness or Flick Fishing, iFaith is absolutely free. So, click on your Virtual Zippo Lighter app and hold your iPhone high in honor of the Archdiocese of New Orleans and its high-tech ministry to Catholics on the go.
