    "I don't consider Hoverwatch worth its price. It performs fine, but compared to other key loggers, it's a bit on the pricey side. Again, I had no issues when using it (no glitches, bugs, etc.), but I think that given its cost, it should offer more features. If you don't find the price expensive, I'd say give it a try. Maybe others will find this much more valuable than I did. "

    "With Xnspy, I can access all the emails my employees have sent or received. I can view their contact lists, listen to their call recordings, access their call history, and also read their text messages. I have set alerts and Xnspy notifies me immediately about any suspicious activity. Xnspy’s Keylogger and ambient recording features are the best I have used so far."

    "Great non-subscription solution to keep track of my phone and monitor my various social media accounts and text messages and I love that I can perform many different operations on my phone including taking pictures without having to be physically near my phone; however, this app is targeting iphones and ipads, and while this app works on my Android, I would like to see an app that is specifically and uniquely designed for Android devices.

    "The product itself sounds useful, but raises some profound privacy issues. While I get it that parents need to keep their kids safe on the internet, do they really need to know every keystroke, and every private word spoken to a friend? I wonder--if you do lend your phone, and find out the person did something inappropriate, does the app then do something about it? Just knowing might not be enough. The text of the site needs to be refined by a native English speaker, it is awkwardly phrased. "
