    Keeping track of your weight and how much you're eating used to be a difficult and time-consuming task. The App Store has given us dozens of health and fitness applications that complete most of the equation, but they all rely on entering in the number of calories in each meal in order to keep an accurate diary of eating patterns. Recently, a new crop of apps have appeared that use a searchable database of products where the nutritional information is already known, but since it only works with prepackaged food, home made snacks and meals are difficult to enter. Aiming to solve this problem once and for all is Meal Snap, a new application that (as its name suggests) requires nothing more than a photo of whatever you're currently eating to reveal the number of calories it contains.

    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.
