Ratings and Reviews
I was very pleased with another confession app but it was discontinued. This app is by far the best replacement I’ve found. I would like a place to make notes for my personal examinations of conscience. Also Some people also use The Examen of Consciousness by St. Ignatius of Loyola as a basis of examination. Some use the Seven Deadly Sins and their daughters. Regardless, this is a solid, well thought out app. Good job.
Very thoughtful and concise App
I found this app to be very useful in preparing to receive the Sacrament. I found it to be concise but thorough and touches on all the bases for a good confession - not only in examining one’s conscience but also demonstrating how one should properly present their failing to a priest. A very good app and worthwhile for those desiring to make a good confession.
Concise but Hard to Read
The colors and brightness/contrast levels make everything VERY hard to see and read and it’s not that I am elderly or have vision difficulties. Should consider changing the color scheme/palette. The color scheme that’s displayed on the App Store is NOT what I’m seeing. Mine is black with purple writing… some verbiage does not even show up so I have big sections of nothing 😩
