Fundación Ramón Pané, an evangelical group in Florida, created a religious app similar to that of Pokemon GO - Follow JC Go! - where one collects significant Catholic figures, such as saints, through answering questions for a spiritual expedition.
Ricardo Grzona, executive director of Fundación Ramón Pané, said, 'You know, [Pope] Francis is not a very technological person, but he was in awe, he understood the idea, what we were trying to do: combine technology with evangelization."
The app is for Android and iOS, and will include in-app purchases, which will result in currency to use within the game and being able to donate to charity. It will eventually be ready for the Italian, Portuguese and English language, but so far it is only in Spanish.
A lot of work (about 32,000 hours) and money ($500,000) was put into this app by a variety of technical and religious experts (43 engineers, Bible experts and etc).
