As announced by its creator Little iApps on its website, the Confession: A Roman Catholic App is the first application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that provides step-by-step guidelines to the Sacrament and to help Catholics confess their sins and for those who wish to return.

The company claims that this app provides password protect files, and is a perfect aid for Catholics to repent and examine their conscience, in which Pope Benedict XVI’s message for the upcoming 45th World Communications Day has mentioned, that Catholic should also behave when they are online.

The text of this Catholic app was developed through the assistance of Rev. Dan Scheidt, pastor of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Mishawaka, Indiana; and Rev. Thomas G. Weinandy, OFM, executive Director of the Secretariat for Doctrine and Pastoral Practices of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

This ‘Confession’ app was also reported to have received an imprimatur from Bishop Kevin C. Rhodes of the Diocese of Fort Wayne, in South Bend, Indiana, and the first app to have received one.

“The app has already aided one man in returning to the sacrament after 20 years. We hope many more will take advantage of this new confession resource.” A statement at said.

However, Little iApps co-founder and developer Patrick Leinen insisted that the app is not being aimed to replace the actual and traditional way of confession of sins to the priest, but simply to serve as a tool to make the confession easier.
