The next time you commit a sin, you might be confessing to your phone.

Three local computer technology experts recently designed an iPhone app called "Confession- a Roman Catholic app."

The program guides you through your confession when while meeting with a priest.

You can take the iPhone into your confessional and it will tell you how long it has been since your last confession, list off things you need to remember for your confession, and some prayers to keep in mind.

Chip Leinen, one of the app’s developers, said, “Initially when we started out, we thought it was something that was missing, the immediate force, the particular device, it was not being used. We should use media to help bring the word to the world.”

So far, 5,000 apps have been downloaded.

They cost $1.99 through Apple.
