The Catholic Church has, um, given its blessing to a “ Confession” iPhone app:
A Catholic bishop in Indiana has approved “Confession: A Roman Catholic App,” created by a company called Little iApps.
For $1.99, Catholics can use their iPhone to help them examine their conscience as part of the sacrament of reconciliation.
But there’s a catch: The application is not designed to replace going into the confession booth.
You’ll still have to see a priest to be absolved from your sins.

The Catholic version uses a three-tiered architecture. The Lutherans and Presbyterians are reportedly working on a two-tier version of the app.
