Vatican denounces iPhone Confession for Catholics

The Vatican has banned American Catholics from confessing via an iPhone app, which was sanctioned by the church in the U.S.

A Vatican spokesman said digital confession could never take the place of admitting to sins to a priest in the flesh.

“One cannot speak in any way of confessing via iPhone,” the spokesman said.

The app, Confession, takes believers through the sacrament and claims to offer a “personalized examination of conscience for each user.”

It is thought to be the first app of its type approved by a church authority.
