The Catholic Church has approved an smart phone app that helps guide worshippers through confession.

Patrick Leinen is the developer, and explains the concept on BBC Radio 5 live.

"Examination of consciences are pretty common in churches," Leinen tells Up All Night presenter Rhod Sharp.

"We're doing the exact same thing, it's just that we're tailoring it a little bit more to you."
