Catholic Church: New Confession App For Your Phone!

new-iphone-app-confession-for-catholics

Who needs the judgment of a priest when you can just use your phone?!

Ha! This is TOO bizarre!

After Pope Benedict XVI's recent World Communications Address emphasized the importance of the church acclimating to the new, digital world, an iPhone application is set to be released that helps Catholics prepare for the sacrament of confession!

Described as a "personalized examination of conscience for each user," the app has even been sanctioned and approved by a church authority!

Patrick Leinen, who helped create the new tool, explains:

"Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology. Taking to heart Pope Benedict XVI's message from last years' World Communications Address, our goal with this project is to offer a digital application that is truly 'new media at the service of the word. We hope many more will take advantage of this new confession resource."

However, don't expect absolution from your iPhone. The app is not designed to substitute for actual confession, but instead an aid to help Catholics through the act.

Wait. So what the eff is it? A tutorial?

Confessing your sins to a priest is pretty self-explanatory! At least we thought it was!

Whatevs! We actually think that it's cool of the church to attempt to keep up with the changing times and stay updated with what technology can now provide!

What do U think?? Will U be confessing your sins to your iPhone anytime soon?

We Knew It Was A Hoax!! Called It!

Filed under: Tech Talk

Awwww! This is kind of disappointing! But expected!

A little while back we posted this charming little video of a man proposing to his girlfriend (above) using a variety of synchronized iPhones and a MacBook Pro, and even then we speculated about its authenticity!

Today, however, it's been confirmed that the clip is a hoax, and was made to promote Thinkmodo, a business venture specializing in discovering the marketing potential of viral videos!

Thinkmodo founder Michael Krivicka reveals:

“Since viral videos are both art and science, we wanted to merge both elements to introduce predictability to the videos’ success. As part of our ’study’ we staged an elaborate marriage proposal in Central Park and fused tech and romance to see how well each would be received if merged. Would men be drawn by the awesome iPhone app (which unfortunately doesn’t exist) or would women cry and wonder why Frank threw the ring (which was never in the box)? Since our video was covered by outlets like Glamour as well as CNET, we learned that, contrary to conventional wisdom, content can be made to appeal to both sexes without lessening the appeal to each.”

Inneresting!

But we have to admit, we doubt that anyone really took it seriously!

A lot of factors didn't add up at the end! But at the end of the day, it was still cute and romantic!

What do U think?? Did U think it the video was legit?

MTV Releases New App To Fight Teen Bullying!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayMTVInspiration

Taking initiative! This is what we are talking about!

MTV has developed a new iPhone app called Over The Line, an online forum where teens can go to share their stories and help others who feel bullied by their peers for being exactly who they are.

Now, teens can have a outlet to discuss their problems right in the palm of their hand and perhaps even find strength in the fact that they are not alone.

CLICK HERE to learn about the app and where you can get it for yourself.

Inspired idea! We hope this gets into the hands of the kids who need it most!

Just always remember - it gets better!

The Situation May Be SUED Over iPhone Application!

situationiphoneapp__opt1.jpg

This is pretty sleazy - even for him!

The Situation recently released an iPhone application which includes a game called Grenade Dodger, inspired by the Jersey Shore star's nickname for less-than desirable gutter trolls.

Apparently, to keep the game as 'authentic' as possible, the design company that made the game, Hey Turbo, sent photographers into clubs with instructions to take pictures of women they considered grenades to use for the feature!

However, one of the aforementioned women realized her likeness was being used, and is threatening legal action!

A source reveals:

"While the girls did know their photos were being taken, they were unaware they were about to become official grenades. It came as a complete surprise and at least one of them is now considering her legal options."

Completely foul!

How on Earth would anybody think doing that is appropriate or acceptable?!

We hope they DO sue - and wipe that shit eating grin right off The Sitch's busted face!
