The developers of â€œConfession: A Roman Catholic Appâ€ for Appleâ€™s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, brothers Patrick and Chip Leinen and their friend Ryan Kreager say feedback has been positive, CNS reports.
The app, reportedly the only one with an imprimatur, is designed to help people make a better confession.
Given in this case by Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend, an imprimatur is an official declaration by a church authority that a book or other printed work may be published. It declares the published work contains nothing offensive to Catholic teaching on faith and morals.
â€œThe app is really built for two kinds of people,â€ Kreager explained. â€œFor Catholics who go to confession regularly, it gives the user information. They enter their name, age, their sex, their vocation and their last confession date, and it generates an examination of conscience based on that information.â€
