even the words of the Pope are not free no more
Approved by the Catholic Church? According to whom? Since telephone "confessions" are already invalid, this is a virtual impossibility, literally.

How long until we get the iPope? Is it too crass to have an iPope touch?
It hasn't been "approved by the Catholic Church." If you look at their website you'll see that they don't make that claim anywhere. It has, however, received an imprimatur. That means it's free of moral and doctrinal error. Also, it doesn't take the place of the sacrament. As the developers themselves clearly state, it's designed to be used inside the confessional. I'm confused about why everyone else is so confused. It's laid out pretty plainly here:http://www.littleiapps.com/press_release.php and in the description on the iTunes store. There's nothing about this app that suggests skipping human contact during the Sacrament of reconciliation is OK or good...in fact, it suggests the opposite: go to confession. Anyway, for what it's worth, I think this is awesome! I'm glad to see this kind of work for our Church.

Do they have a subscription version for $666/month that guarantees I go to Heaven as long as I stay subscribed up to my death? I keep falling asleep at Mass so I need something a little easier.
Oh, here's a little Easter Egg (sorry the pun) for you guys: If you type in "Show me da money!!!" in that Confession app you will get to see a picture of a naked little boy.
