Pilgrim – the Official WYD2016 App


Zgubiłem moja grupę!

You pause for a moment to take in the amazing atmosphere of  World Youth Day – and when you look round, your friends have moved on into the swirling crowds …

The official WYD App published by the Archdiocese of Krakow has a phrasebook (with audio for pronunciation) so you can tell someone you’ve lost your group, and find the right Polish phrase in happier situations too.

The essentials are all here:  the WYD programme and  guides to accommodation, restaurants, packed meal distribution points, information centres. In addition,  the app includes prayers and songs, locations of the catechesis sites with times for each language, one-click emergency and helpline numbers , an e-postcard creator, sight-seeing guides, a range of maps and a lot more.

We’ve had a quick go of the iPhone version, and so far it’s looking good! If you haven’t installed it yet, It’s available for both  iPhone and Android.

Give it a go – and let us know what you think.
