    There’s a Conclave app too called “Conclave”. It’s free, but requires ios 6.0

    What color will the smoke be if they elect that Fellay fellow?

    If they elect that Fellay fellow, it won’t be long before we serve Filet of heretic, flayed.

    Remember: miracles happen.

    Would like to get a push notification or SMS text alert when white smoke is spotted for those of us who can’t stay glued to twitter or the tv all day. Anyone aware of any services? I was hoping that the Pope App would provide for this.
