    "I wanted a great new app, but all the great apps that I saw you had to jailbreak your phone and if I did that, the warranty would be gone from it. For someone like me who drops her phone alot, that's a no-go. However, I was told about MSpy which is an app that keeps track office computers and office phones to ensure they are being used for work only. I feel like this is a real big invasion of privacy so I deleted it as soon as I looked into it."

    "There is no context that I, as a 30-year-old single android user, would have for this product that wouldn't be inherently creepy. However, I've read enough product website sites in my life to know that this is a very sleek and effective product. If the user seeks to play NSA with their (or someone else's) smartphone this is the absolute perfect product to make me vaguely uncomfortable the more I think of it."

    "I found this app pretty good as it offers all advanced features to track an iPhone. Plus, there was a live demo. Unlike other apps, it offers reasonable pricing plans. The app uploads all the data as soon as my kid’s iPhone is connected to the internet. I track his phone calls, messages, IM chats, and locations. Also, I get instant alerts whenever he uses inappropriate words in his chats or tries to enter prohibited areas. Must try!!! "
