If you ever need to play amateur spy, your smartphone is all you need. There are a number of cool apps that will give you the eyes and extra ears you need. And who would ever suspect that you’re spying on your smartphone?


Back then in the days, eavesdropping used to mean that you had to carry around a special-purpose device. If the wrong person spotted it, you were done. But with an Audio recording app on your smartphone, you are as stealthy as you can ever get. You just have to make sure you have enough storage on your phone, and you can capture everything within earshot all day long. It’s also important that you understand the law so that you don’t get into trouble with your spy recordings.

You just need to put on your headphones, download and install this app and you’re all set up. EarSpy sends audio right from your mic to your headphones. This way, you can listen without looking suspicious. You can even leave your phone near your mark and listen in through a Bluetooth headset.

Hidden Camera

If you’re keen to take a photo or record some video, your smartphone can come in handy. Mobile hidden camera lets you do this in a sneaky way so that nobody else notices. The app will let you take pictures from a very blank screen, even inside a fully-working notepad app. And if someone gets suspicious about what you’re doing, you can just type a designated word into notepad and everything you’ve captured will be erased.

Cell Tracker

Do you need to track your sales rep or delivery guy? This app lets brings you up to speed on their location every half hour. Just make sure that it’s installed before you hand over company phones to your employees. The app uses a combination of both WiFi and GPRS to automatically collect location information.

Secret Calls

This is another great Android spy app that lets you secure all your call activities. The app is designed in such a way that it hides the phonebook contact icon on your device, thus preventing anyone from snooping. More so, you can automatically delete all incoming and outgoing call logs so no one can trace them.These easy to use Android apps are all you need to play amateur spy. Maybe you need to conduct a small secret investigation in your business or find out what a friend has been up to.
