Pappaltastic! Pope approves app for the iPhone

8 February 2011

PD*27594970The Catholic Church may not be that keen on discussing the whole 'touching up kids' and 'hiding Nazi treasure' thing, but they are quite happy to give a blessing to an iPhone app that helps guide you god fearing folk through confession.

The app is called Confession which sounds more like a celebrity endorsed aftershave and went on sale last week through iTunes for £1.19. Apparently, it's the "perfect aid for every penitent" and gives tips to help you with the sacrament. Although, if you were a proper Catholic, you'd know it inside-out already.

Essentially, this app allows you to keep track of your sins, which is just great. An app that heaps the guilt onto your shoulders without ever having to go near a priest. You put in your personal details and such and the app allows you to examine your conscience. Although it is supposed to be an aid, this little rascal could replace ever having to go to a draughty old church that smells of incense and pensioner urine.

Next week: The Pope tries to develop own 4chan meme and it goes horribly, horribly wrong.

    If it was endorsed by Tony Blair then we'd know it works.

    Can you also get an app to say the hail marys for you? That way, you could sin, and let your iphone do the confession and the meaningless penance for you.
