The Confession App

This doesn't seem like a bad idea to me. Of course, there are dangers which Father Z discusses:

About a million people have written to me about the new “confession” app for the iPhone. Well… not a million, but a lot.

I am all for anything that gets people to go to confession. But let’s be clear about something:

The iPhone app is for preparing to go to confession. It is not a substitute for going to confession.

The app costs $1.99 in the iTunes app store. It has an imprimatur from Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Fort Wayne – South Bend.

The app store says that it was developed by Fr. Thomas Weinandy, OFM, the Exec. Director of the Secretariate for Doctrine and Pastoral Practices for the USCCB and Fr. Dan Scheidt, pastor of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Mishawaka, Indiana.

What about a page of Catholic apps for all occasions.
IPIETA is a personal favourite (aussie spelling)of mine as it covers so much of our Faith.
Others I use include all the Devine Offerings for each day on Universalis and individual apps for Lauds,Compline and Vespers and Devine Mercy.
The Podcast offers: Rosary Army, Stations of the Cross and the fantastic downloads each day and all week from EWTN.
How did we ever do without them. Has surely awoken my Faith to have all these for constant prayers if needed. If only I had the ability to pray constantly!

It's not an app, but you can do Eucharistic Adoration online at www.savior.org. It's a nice substitute for when you really can't make it to church.
