Mobile Spy, the mobile phone “monitoring” application previously available on Windows Mobile and Symbian platforms, has finally hit one of the biggest smartphone successes of 2008. The Mobile Spy application is now compatible with the iPhone and iPhone 3G. Retina-X Studios designed Mobile Spy to run unnoticed in the background – after all, what good is a piece of snoop-ware if the user knows it’s there?
The Mobile Spy app keeps track of all incoming and outgoing phone calls as well as SMS text messages. The data is then secretly uploaded to a private account for later analysis.
“Mobile Spy is a priceless piece of software. After having some doubts about honesty, this really helped set the record straight and confirmed my suspicions,” says Derrick, a Mobile Spy user. Retina-X Studios CEO James Johns states, “The iPhone has quickly become the most dominant smartphone all over the world. Before now there was no method to monitor activities of children or employees on the iPhone. Being the first to develop this technology, we will continue expanding with new features for this tool including GPS location tracking and email logging.”
Retina-X Studios says that their Mobile Spy software is intended to monitor children and employees. But, with the ability to run silently on any iPhone or iPhone 3G, we can see Mobile Spy being used for more nefarious means.
