Confession app blessed by Catholic bishop
An iPhone and iPad app that helps Roman Catholics seek forgiveness for their sins has been sanctioned by the Catholic Church.
Confession: A Roman Catholic App, developed by Little iApps in South Bend, Ind., received an "imprimatur" — an official publication licence from the church — from Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of the Indiana Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, the company said in a news release.
The confession app was number five as of Wednesday on the top paid lifestyle apps chart on the Canadian iTunes site, just ahead of 'iKamasutra' and just behind 'Mixologist: Drink Recipes.'
The release added that this is the first known imprimatur given to an iPhone or iPad app, even though a number of similar apps already exist.

The app "is not intended to function as a replacement for confession" at church," he said in an email to CBC News.
