New app takes you to the confession booth

South Bend, Indiana (WVLT) -- Have you sinned lately? Maybe it's time for a confessional. Well, there's an app for that!

Three Catholics from Indiana got together to create a new iPad application that's creating some competition. It's already made the top 20 apps for Apple. It's called "Confessions: A Roman Catholic App."

Here's how it works: Input your personal information such as age, gender, and marital status. The program then generates an examination on the conscience that relates to the user. This isn't designed to get people out of the confessional, but to encourage to draw them in. One priest says the app helps with special needs children by keeping them focused during confession.

It only costs two dollars to download and all the money goes toward the church and various other charities.
