Want to learn more about the pope? There's an app for that.

And you'll  be able to follow along on your smartphone.

U.S. Catholic Church leaders are creating a new app just in time for Pope Francis's visit.

The app will work on both Android and Apple devices. People will be able to use it to learn more about the pope and his visit.

The app will also have information about the Catholic Faith.

People will be able to watch video on the app of the pope's stops in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York.

Some bishops say they hope that with the help of this new app, Pope Francis's visit can draw millions of Catholics across the country closer to their faith.

Content  on the app will be available in both English and Spanish.

In addition to being able to view pictures and videos of Pope Francis in the United States, people will also be able to find a parish near them and get daily scripture readings.

People can download the app for free from Google Play and Apple's App store.

The app is called USA Catholic Church.
