Officially getting the okay from the Catholic Church, the app has a step-by-step guide to the sacrament- where people admit to sins commited- and will ask questions based on your faith.
Talking to Reuters, Patrick Leinen from developer, Little iApps, told them that: “Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology,” The latest update, released this month includes the ability to add sins not already listed within the app.
The developers say that they were helped by several priests and the app was given the church’s official approval by Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Indiana. Confession: A Roman Catholic app will offer believers “Custom examination of conscience based upon age, sex, and vocation (single, married, priest, or religious).”
The app, currently only available for the iPad and iPhone, won’t replace the real-life confession process- you’ll still need to seek a priest for absolution.
