The iOS app only walks you through the sacrament, in what the developers describe as a "personalized examination of conscience for each user", but you still have to see a priest in the end to receive absolution. What's more, it has actually been officially sanctioned by the Catholic Church in the US, giving you even more reasons to skip human contact when you are divulging the most secret pieces of your life story. One of the developers claims that the app has already returned a stray sheep to the act of sacrament, after a 20-year pause.
Too bad The Sopranos saga is over, this app could have been used in a great scene there. Having your information "in the cloud" now receives a whole new meaning.
