    "This is a child novelty toy, and is used for entertainment purposes. Apparently it's really low quality too, and is not as useful as the human ear. Additionally, hearing both with your ears and with the phone can prove to be confusing, considering the playback delay."

    "If you have a nosy girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse then this app is great. It's going to automatically delete incoming and missed calls from private contacts, saving you countless hours of explaining. The best part is that there's no icon so you don't have to explain anything to anyone ever again. "

    "For Spy Apps, this one will do just what it says. While it won't turn you into James Bond, you can secretly record sounds, and take filtered pictures to make it seem like you are wearing infrared gear, but is nothing too serious. Fun to play around with, but there are probably more high tech solutions out there. "

    "This app is a must for those that need to keep their messages more private. It allows your messages to delete after certain occurrences (such as being opened or set on a timer) so you are sure to feel more secure with your messages. The interface is easy to use, but I feel the layout could be a little better."

    "My ex-boyfriend wanted to install a spy app on our phones before we broke up. I took one look at Couple Tracker and decided that it was not for me. This app just felt like an invasion of privacy."

    "Many spy applications are being offered to people when it comes to monitoring someone’s phone history and other related activities, but Cocospy is the one that we all need. It has amazing features that appeal to users. One of the best things about this spy app is that you don’t need to install it. By having the targeted device iCloud info you can now gain access to the phone’s history and contact details. Apart from giving a comprehensive report of all the activities that are being done on the phone, it also records online activities, so it means that now you would be able to know all about the other social media apps that are being used on the targeted phone. Well-recommended and reliable!"

    "I just gave an iPhone to my sixteen year old daughter and I am worried. I am worried about where she goes and what she is doing most of the time. So I was looking around the iTunes apple app store online for some spyware and I found the GPS & locator Standard. This is the perfect app for a parent that is interested in keeping up with their kids. Great features and very easy to use."

    "I was not pleased with the Security Cam with Dropbox and YouTube Sync app. I wanted to find out why my trashcan kept getting knocked over in the mornings, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a spy cam, so I purchased this app instead. Big mistake, as it didn’t work at all, didn’t capture anything in my surroundings, kept shutting off, and was very glitchy. This is not an app that I would recommend."

    "This is one of the better spy apps available. It allows you to record your voice while making your screen look normal (as if it were in a lock screen). The lock screen mode is almost hidden but there is a small rotating circle and a red stripe which are visible if someone is looking closely. Additionally sending the audio files can be difficult. This is a good started app but not recommended for someone with very serious or advanced needs"
