5 spy apps for Android
As the name implies, IP Cam Viewer lets you access an IP web camera, in case you happen to own one. However, there are video streams from many public and traffic cameras that you can watch using the app. Of course, the people on the other side won't even suspect they are being monitored.
With Auto call recorder, you will always have a log of your conversations for personal reference. You know, just in case you happen to forget something important that someone told you over the phone. The app may also come in handy at times when someone borrows your phone, and you really want to listen to their conversation afterwards.
The app installs and behaves as a simple notepad application, yet in reality, it is a versatile spy camera that can automatically shoot photos or video at a given interval. And it does that without firing the flash, without making any noise, without giving any notifications whatsoever. The possibilities are endless.
4. App Lock
Perhaps you have stuff on your smartphone that you don't want others to see, such as your photos, calendar entries, or text messages. That is why an application like App Lock is worth installing. It prevents apps from being accessed by asking for a password or a pattern before launching them.
M-Spy is an app made for snooping on conversations, yet using it might be a little tricky. Basically, you need two handsets - one to install the app on and use as a "microphone" and another that you can listen through. The app transmits audio over the cellular line by dialling a phone number you specify upon receiving a text message with a special code.

This perplexes me--as devious as this is, it's like someone hacked a PA account and posted it, haha. Nothing wrong with using the stuff I guess, just seems weird for a media site to encourage it openly; which is what you do by posting it, regardless of saying otherwise. Lol, whaaatever.

an app is a tool at the end of the day just like a knife, but its up to us how we use it. thses apps can be used for fun or for malicious purposes. as a media site you have to remain unbiased, if its out there you have to report it. so PA didnt do anything wrong.
But i see your point as well....i guess its those kind of situations where PA is between a hard place and a rock. If they report then they get bashed and if they dont, they get bashed again!
But full marks to PA in my books :)

Is there a spy bluetooth app that lets u snoop around another person phone with out them knowing? Some older nokia phones have this feature.

Finding one in Google Play seems highly unlikely. Finding one that actually works in a third party app marketplace is quite improbable as well. Better not try installing any such software as chances are you'll get infested by spyware.
