Want to know what your spouse or child does when you are not around? Don't worry, scientists have developed a new mobile phone spying application which can help you keep a tab on their activities.
Made by Retina Software, ePhoneTracker allows users to monitor every move made on a person's mobile phone.
It silently records everything including text messages, call info, GPS locations, websites visited, contacts added and retrieved. Even deleted e-mails and texts can be retrieved by the new application, its developers claimed.
Logs are then e-mailed directly to your e-mail address, allowing you to read the results at home on your computer or on your smartphone while you're away.
According to the company, the application has another unique feature called SpyCall.
Using this feature, "you can call the phone from any other phone and secretly listen to surroundings without anyone knowing you've called," the company said on its website.
"If you think your spouse is cheating, then statistics state you are probably correct. Cell phones are the primary communication tool for affairs," Gerald Carvey, VP of Product Development at Retina, said in a statement.
"Our software allows you to expose the truth to see whether or not your suspicions are accurate."
The software, which can be installed onto a smartphone for USD 49.97, is available for Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile 6 or Symbian OS 9.
Once installed, the application starts every time the phone is turned on. The invisible application remains stealth and doesn't show up in the running processes.
