Two new iPhone applications (or apps) offer Seventh-day Adventist television programming and local information for the church's World Session, a 10-day spiritual gathering and business meeting set for later this month.

The church's official television network, Hope Channel, released an app allowing users to watch its streaming channels live. Available for 99 cents at the iTunes shop, the app offers Hope Channel programs and a prgramming guide for its international networks, including North and South America, Europe and Asia.
