iPhone Confession App Approved by Roman Catholic Church, Will it Work?

Following Pope Benedict XVI’s message for the 45th World Communications Day in which he invited young people to make good use of their presence in the digital world, a new application for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices has been released and approved by The Catholic Church.

The app called Confession: A Roman Catholic App is designed as a “perfect aid for every penitent”. At a price tag of $1.99 per download at the Apple App Store, Confession brings a personalized examination of conscience for each user and a step-by-step guide to the sacrament. With support for password-protected accounts, the app has been developed by Little iApps, LLC (a new start-up company) and has been collaborated by notable personalities in the US Catholic circle. The first app to receive an imprimatur from a Bishop, Confession would invite Catholics to prayerfully prepare for and participate in the Rite of Penance.

Though this is seemingly a good idea for the faithful, criticisms are always there to point out whether this would really work. But so far, for being a “new media at the service of the Word” – the Confession app is said to already aid one man in returning to the sacrament after 20 years. Match with the Daily Gospel App, I guess that would seem to work better. What do you think? [via]
