This is one of those app announcements sure to get people talking. DLP Mobile has launched a controversial new application, Secret SMS Replicator, into the Android Market aimed specifically at users who want to secretly and remotely monitor the incoming SMS messages on another handset. Stepping out on your girlfriend or wife? You might want to lock your phone up lest she learns of Secret SMS Replicator.
Once the application is installed on your target’s phone, it runs in the background and completely hides itself. At that point forward, it secretly forwards each incoming incoming SMS messages to the number(s) you choose. There is no icon, no shortcut, and no settings panel. The only way to get into the app is to text the target phone a pre-determined code word.
Secret SMS Replicator is $4.99 to purchase and can be found immediately in the Android Market.
