Mobile spy app pitched at paranoid partners

'I think I'm paranoid'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

If you’re a bit paranoid, you’ll worry that your partner’s doing everything from cheating on you to planning world domination behind your back. But buy them a Nokia with Interceptor Software installed and you’ll apparently be able to rest easy.

The software acts like your personal "guy on the inside", because once it’s installed on your partner’s phone it’ll text you a copy of every SMS she or he sends and receives, an SMS copy of every phone number dialled and a copy of every number that rings the handset.

Set-up a pre-defined third-party number and you’ll even be able to listen in on conversations in real-time.

The software doesn’t support GPS tracking, but the software will let you change any of its settings by a simple text message.

Interceptor Software is available online, pre-installed on several Nokias, including the N95. The bad news is that it costs £1668 ($2489/€1866), but what price can you put on piece of mind?
