The Pope App is an official mobile application software launched by the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican on January 23, 2013. At the beginning it was only available on iPhone and iPad, but became available for Android phones in the end of February 2013. The app is available for download on iOS and Android in five languages: English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

It is promoted as an application with focus on the figure of the Pope which will make it possible to follow the Pope's events while they are taking place. Alerts notify the followers by informing and offering access to "official papal-related content in a variety of formats". The app also enables its users to see areas of the Vatican through webcams allocated throughout St. Peter's Square in Rome that broadcast images.

The Pope App is distributed through the App Store and Google Play.
