Catholic Confession app for iPhone

The Catholic Church has approved a 'Confessions' app for the iPhone.

A Catholic bishop in Indiana has, for the first time, given his official imprimatur -- or blessing, if you will -- to an iPhone/iPad app. "Confession: A Roman Catholic App" prepares people for the church ritual of confessing their sins to a priest.

Would the user actually be confessing to an iPhone?

No, this application was never designed as a substitute for Confession, it just prepares the user for the sacrament of confession so don't expect the iPhone to tell you how many "Hail Mary's" to say.
