The Code of Canon Law states:
A member of the Christian faithful is obliged to confess in kind and number all grave sins committed after baptism and not yet remitted directly through the keys of the Church nor acknowledged in individual confession, of which the person has knowledge after diligent examination of conscience. (CIC 988)
If you don’t know an exact number, you can give a best estimate or provide an approximation (e.g., “several times”). If you forget to do this or later remember additional occurrences of grave sins, your sins are still forgiven, but you should remember to acknowledge those sins at your next confession.
We are planning on updating the Android app to include translations and reminders in the near future. When it is completed we will announce it on our website.

An Imprimatur is an official declaration by the Catholic Church that a work may be produced. It usually is applied to printed materials, such as books or pamphlets. Imprimatur derives from the Latin, “let it be printed,” and having an imprimatur means that the local Bishop (in our case, Bishop Kevin C. Rhodes) has reviewed our work and found it to be in accord with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
The app Confession: A Roman Catholic App has been granted imprimatur which represents the approval of our local Bishop, Kevin C. Rhodes. The imprimatur is not an endorsement by the bishop of the contents of the app – It is a public declaration that nothing offensive to Catholic teaching on faith and morals has been found in it. However, that does not mean that the Vatican gives their expressed approval.
No. This app is an aid intended to help a person prepare for the sacrament of Confession. It is not intended to function as a replacement for confession!

The short answer is, yes, with a caveat: We only do paid contract work and do not take on personal projects for individuals.
