THERE'S an app that will identify songs for you, according to Father Bob Maguire.
Someone used it to help him name a song the other day - imagine if there was an app that could tell us what people need.
"Darling, we've already got it - they're called ears," Father Maguire said.
The founder of the Father Bob Foundation and outspoken advocate for the disadvantaged ("can't you call me the homely priest from Melbourne?") visited Launceston this month to aid the fund-raising efforts of Marillac House.
Father Maguire said Tasmanians - like all Australians - needed to heed the advice of their ancestors.
"We need to go back to the Dreaming," he said.
"We're all in this together - let go of European and American ideologies of greed, greed and greed.
"We're all whingeing and moaning we haven't got anything. We've got it, but we're not sharing it.
"Let's do an audit and see what we're spending our money on."
Father Maguire wants to see Tasmanians train, prepare and head into the "undesirable suburbs".
Learn the language of the residents - "a few short, sharp four-letter words" - and make a friend, he advised.
And what happens next?
"You might get punched," he said.
"You gotta go and join them.
"If the ordinary people can't find it in their hearts and minds, we're going to have to call on the religious people to go back to their original aims and go where no one else would go.
"[Ordinary people] need to become missionaries, or people whisperers.
"See why there are patches of Launceston that are no-go areas, there'll be a reason."
And while he insisted he didn't want to be churlish towards Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Father Maguire urged the community to gather and start running itself.
"We have to run a civil society independent of political society," he said.
"Every boy and girl needs to get off their ass and if it fails it's back on the people."
Father Maguire said he holds plenty of hope for Launceston.
"You're in with a chance," he said.
"If the rest of Australia sank, I'd be perfectly happy to stay in Launceston."
