    So I don't know how many of you have ever gone to confession, but I have. As an ex-catholic school boy I was marched off to confession every few weeks to tell the priest my sins. That was then, this is now. I have not been to confession for over 20 years and there is now an app to make my life easier (who has time to see a priest?)

    When you launch the app you get to put in multiple users, but it does allow you to put in a password. This can be good, because as you see later your sins get saved for later reference. Then you find out for how long since your last confession and can choose which version of The Act of Contrition is best for you. You can choose the short one or if you are really hard core then go the latin version. (If you have no idea what an Act of Contrition then you are getting too deep).




    Now the fun part. You get to choose your sins. It is based around the 12 commandments and the examinations of these. So under the 6th commandment you can confess your masturbation, indecent dressing and thoughts (only tick the box once, not one for each time). If you have sinned outside the standard realm of the 12 commandments, then you can add your own sins. I wish there was a way to share these sins amongst users. This could make a great read.




    Then you begin confession and it gives you what to say. I would love to see someone walk into confession with their notes they had made beforehand, just to make sure they have them all. It steps you through the list and allows you to skip some if you want.

    We have had over half a year to get use to the amazingly sharp retina display and the improved optics that the iPhone 4 have to offer, donít you think it is time to grunge it up a bit. The Hipstamatic revolution was great. We were finally able to take photos with some character, but it did not shoot video. FInally 8mm Vintage Camera has come to the fore and allowed you to grunge up your videos, with a few limitations.
