Bless Me, iPhone, For I Have Sinned


Failed to acknowledge thine iniquity or desired your neighbor’s wife recently? Your iPhone might hold the key to redemption. The Catholic Church just approved of “Confession: A Roman Catholic App.” But before you deviants marvel at the fact that God’s good graces can be purchased for the low, low price of $1.99, the app isn’t sanctioned as a way to replace the confessional booth. It merely helps you keep track of the evil thou hath committed until the next time you see a priest. The app lists the most common failings, but users are free to write in their own. FYI, SinsFromLastNight is still available on Tumblr, in case anyone wants to get started on that. [New Scientist]
