How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description

Designed to be used in the confessional, this app is a useful aid for any penitent. With a personalized examination of conscience for each user, password-protected profiles, and a step-by-step guide to the sacrament, this app invites Catholics to prayerfully prepare for and participate in the Rite of Penance. Individuals who have been away from the sacrament for some time will find Confession: A Roman Catholic App to be a useful and inviting tool.

The text of this app was developed in collaboration with the Rev. Thomas G. Weinandy, OFM, executive director of the Secretariat for Doctrine and Pastoral Practices of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the Rev. Dan Scheidt, pastor of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Mishawaka, Ind. The app received an imprimatur from Bishop Kevin C. Rhodes of the Diocese of Fort Wayne--South Bend, Ind. It is the first known imprimatur to be given for an Android app.

4.0 out of 5 stars Includes Rosary Prayers December 29, 2011
By Adam
Verified Purchase
While I sincerely doubt that I'd ever use this app in an actual confessional, it does have an excellent examination of conscience. I also appreciate it keeps track of the time since my last confession.

What is really great though is this app includes all the prayers needed to say the Holy Rosary, like the Apostle's Creed and Hail Holy Queen! It also contains several different Acts of Contrition.

My only complaint is that there's no way to make the font bigger. It is somewhat small for my tastes on the Kindle Fire.

Overall, this is a great app and I'm very pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful, adaptable, useful July 21, 2011
I met the developers at a conference, and they sold it to me well. I figured, at the very least, the Examination of Conscience would be useful. Not only would it adapt to my demographic, I could also add a few sins I feel personal about, as well as take away those on the list I am not personally troubled with. It also has some awesome acts of contrition prayers. I still feel uncomfortable bringing my android tablet into the confessional, but it is cool nonetheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs Improvement December 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
The product installed just fine on my Kindle Fire HD. Completing the setup was simple. The questions listed for each commandment could be improved in number and with customization for age. I was not able to find any way of reducing or deleting sins entered against a given question. For example, if I mistakenly tap the wrong question, I don't know how to undo it. Another problem occurred when a second user was setup. The setup went fine but then neither the first or second used could get into the app with their password. I had to delete all the stored data and start over. That seemed to fix the problem since both users can now use the app but it does not explain why the problem occurred and makes me wonder if I will be able to use it again the next time I go to confession. Might also be nice to be able to add note to record what comes to mind as I examine my conscience for each question. I find it useful but not a finished product.

Easily keeps you on track and ready for confession. Could be more discriptive but really an excellent start to keep you up to date for a good confession.

4.0 out of 5 stars really useful February 28, 2013

I never was one to do a daily examination of conscience. However, this really helped me to start, and then to keep track when I went to confession.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice idea,but... February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a very basic examination of conscience. I would like to see a much greater detailed list under each category for examination. It also would be appropriate to include information on mortal sins beyond what we all know--murder, abortion, etc...many of us commit mortal sins and think they are no big deal because we think they are small sins--venial sins. But, when a sin goes against one of the ten commandments then it is serious, and if it is committed with full knowledge that it is wrong, and done purposefully, then it is indeed mortal. This app could go much further in truly helping one to examine one's conscious in light of the beatitudes as well which Christ wanted us to strive for beyond the baseline commandments. Therefore, it is not just sinful to commit adultery, but to participate actively in lust through visual cues (what we expose ourselves to on television, through print material, and even at the beach), immodesty, flirting outside of a committed relationship, etc...this app could be so much better--far too basic to grow with in holiness.

Just what it says, you list the things you have done and when you go to confession it is right there to refresh you memory.

This app is very helpful but it really needs the capability of increasing the font for the act of contrition prayers.
