Confession: A Roman Catholic App
By Little i Apps, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Designed to be used in the confessional, this app is the perfect aid for every penitent. With a personalized examination of conscience for each user, password protected profiles, and a step-by-step guide to the sacrament, this app invites Catholics to prayerfully prepare for and participate in the Rite of Penance. Individuals who have been away from the sacrament for some time will find Confession: A Roman Catholic App to be a useful and inviting tool.
The text of this app was developed in collaboration with Rev. Thomas G. Weinandy, OFM, Executive Director of the Secretariat for Doctrine and Pastoral Practices of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Rev. Daniel Scheidt, pastor of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Mishawaka, IN. The app received an imprimatur from Bishop Kevin C. Rhodes of the Diocese of Fort Wayne ‚Äì South Bend. It is the first known imprimatur to be given for an iPhone/iPad app.

What's New in Version 3.0.1
- Bug fix for some users experiencing crashes
- Improved stability
The Confession App is an excellent tool for those like me who are coming back to the sacrament after long time. It challenges the user to examine his or her behavior through the lens of several prompts framed under each of the commandments which can be done multiple times before each visit to the confessional. Once you finally make it there, this tallying of sins is particularly useful so that you can accurately report both the offense and the number of times committed. Also included are multiple versions of the Act of Contrition and a general "walk-through" of how to properly preparebfor the sacrament. I recommend this for anyone who is returning to confession after a long absence!
Great tool for Reconciliation—Love This App!
This app provides a thorough Examination of Conscience for those who don't already have their own go-to method. I love that you can add "items" to and customize your EoC. Also wonderful because it walks you through what to do and say during Confession, with options to pick your favorite version of different prayers like the Act of Contrition. My favorite feature is that it keeps track of how long it's been since you made your last confession—that's always the part I forget! (I suppose that means I'm not going often enough...) Glad they fixed whatever bug was causing it to crash. Definitely a good download!
I like it, but…
This does what I want it to do, but it lacks some privacy features. If you double press to switch apps, it show the app clearly, rather than covering or diffusing the image of the window when shrunk. Also, unless you exit the app completely, you do not have to reenter the password, which I consider a privacy flaw. I used another confession app that had both of the missing features, but it doesn't work with the most recent iOS 8 be soon, so I've had to switch.
