You know you're a Catholic geek of immense proportions when finding something like this makes you jump up and down:

Little i Apps, LLC is pleased to announce the updated release of Confession: A Roman Catholic App, the international best seller for iPhone™, iPad, iPod touch© and Android devices. Developed for those who frequent the sacrament and those who wish to return, this popular confession helper now features push notification reminders, additional vocation choices, sin counts, and updated examinations.  In honor of the election of Pope Francis and the global renewal of the New Evangelization, the app is also now available natively in Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese.

I'm even more excited because we have a few iOS copies of the app to give away!

To win, leave a comment below by Tuesday, May 7 at midnight Pacific.

Now, let's talk about the app and what's new:

  • Now available in English, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish
  • Personalized examination of conscience questions for deacons (married and single) and seminarians
  • Track the number of times a sin is committed


  • Set push notification reminders for going to confession


  • Helpful updates to all examination questions that will aid your preparation and make it easier to use the app during confession

As hard as it is to get myself to Confession, I always make sure I have my iPad with me, and this is the app I use (though yes, I have tried others). It has helped me to get over the hurdle of "I don't know what to confess!" and the embarrassment of "I forget what to say!"

It's worth every penny you pay for it, and don't forget to enter to win it!
