NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Catholic Church approved a new iPhone app designed to help troubled worshippers through confession. The app, called Confession, allows Catholics to track their sins and prepare for penance.
Confession, designed by the company Little iApps in South Bend, Ind., was developed in collaboration with several priests. The $2 app was not designed to replace traditional confession, says the company, but to help users better understand their actions before going to church.
While Confession is the first app to be approved by members of the clergy, it is not the first time that the Catholic Church has embraced technology.
