Update: Even though the U.S. Roman Catholic Church sanctioned the app, the Pope has now publicly stated that believers shouldn't confess their sins to a screen, and that technology is no substitute for a priest.

Have you been coveting your neighbour's wife? Taking the Lord's name in vain? Killing? There's an app for that. While the ten commandments go back to biblical times, the way you absolve yourself of sin is now decidedly 2011.
If you have a confession to make, just whip out your phone and download "Confession: A Roman Catholic App." It'll walk you through an exploration of your conscience, and suggest prayers for you based on the sin you've committed. The app's even been approved by officials in the Catholic church.
