Guilty conscience? There's an app for that.

Are you too proud of your iPhone 4? Seething with envy at your neighbor's Chevy Volt? Too slothful to separate the colored and clear glass in your recycling bin? Lusting after your Bikram Yoga instructor? Couldn't resist that second helping of Camembert?

Now for only $1.99 you can seek absolution from your iPhone!

Mmm... yoga inst... OH, sorry.

Yeah, with some of the fanbois I've met, simply having the iPhone is all the absolution one could ever need!

Bless me, Father, for I have sinned and bought an Android phone.

Actually, this could get very interesting. The Ninth Circuit recently ruled that the police are free to paw through your phone without a warrant as part of a search incident to arrest; this app, however might have some protection under the priest/penetant privilege.

I foresee a lawyer with a new Mercedes in the near future.

Nah, it's just an assisted examination of conscience. If they can paw through your phone, anything you put into this app is fair game.

wv: thesses. Ooo-kay, that's creepy.

Uh, no, you can't get absolution from your iPhone, even with this app. You need a priest for that, and anyone who suggests differently doesn't understand the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation.

There's a good detailed review of the app, complete with screen shots, at http://wdtprs.com/blog/2011/02/review-the-new-iphone-app-for-confession-useful-but-flawed/

Sadly, I have a nephew that I discovered over the xmas holiday is a full blown Apple fanboy. Not only an iphone, but an ipad, a macbook, and in the process of becoming an Apple certified repair technician.
