Mobile Spy 5 Now Available, Brings New Features
May 10, 2011 10:14 AM –
Mobile Spy LIVE Control Panel from Retina-X Studios LLC is now available. Using this mobile surveillance technology, users can visually monitor their child or employee’s smartphone instantaneously. This is part of a broader release of Mobile Spy’s latest version 5.0. This new major release also adds the ability for users to have activity logs delivered directly to their email address and silent SMS commands for monitoring and recovering a smartphone.
Mobile Spy runs in stealth mode and no mentions of the program are shown inside the phone. After the software is set up, it records logs of SMS text messages, call information, GPS locations, photos and other activities. Immediately after activities are logged, they are uploaded to the user’s private online account. Accounts can be checked online from any web browser without needing further access to the phone.
The Live Control Panel add-on displays a monitored phone’s screenshot and a map of the phone’s current location. This information is updated every 90 seconds. Within the panel, users can issue commands such as initiate a normal call to any number, lock or unlock the phone or get SIM card information.
Version 5.0 also adds silent SMS commands for surveillance and recovery. The user sends their monitored phone an SMS with a command. The software recognizes the SMS and keeps it hidden from view, performs the command and sends a silent SMS back with the results. Commands include GPS Location, SIM information, Lock/Unlock phone and the ability to wipe the phone’s data completely.
“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, “Before now there was no method to instantly and visually monitor activities of children or employees on a smartphone. Being the first to develop this technology, we will continue expanding with new features for this unique instant surveillance and recovery tool.”
Mobile Spy v5.0 is available for all three major smartphone Operating Systems: iPhone, Android and BlackBerry, as well as Symbian OS and Windows Mobile devices. The program is frequently updated to maintain compatibility with new OS releases.
