Confession App: Forgive Me, iPhone

Say it with me:  “There’s an app for that.”  A new iPhone app gives Catholics the opportunity to confess – electronically.

The iPhone app is called “Confession”, and it’s intended to walk sinners through the sacrament with a “personalized examination of conscience for each user”. 

However, the app is not intended to replace traditional confession; users still need to seek absolution from a priest.

Little iApps, a South Bend, Indian company, told the New York Daily News the app also makes it easy for Catholics who may have strayed from their religion to come back to their faith:

“Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology,” said Patrick Leinen of the three-man company Little iApps, based in South Bend, Indiana.

“Taking to heart Pope Benedict XVI‘s message from last years’ World Communications Address, our goal with this project is to offer a digital application that is truly ‘new media at the service of the word.”

Confession is available today on iTunes for $1.99.
