Phone Creeper Ported to Android – Introducing OVERVI3W
Many moons ago, while Windows Mobile still reigned supreme and Android was still getting out of its shell, XDA member chetstriker released a very controversial app called Phone Creeper, which was basically a spy program for you to place in someone else’s device. It was very difficult to see as it didn’t show as a running process nor did it show in the installed apps list. However, this little program was very real and would allow anyone to peek into other’s devices and their usage. You could intercept sms, phone calls, mms, browsing history, and really anything you could think of. Well, over half a year later, the dev is back with a new version, but this time for Android and under the name of OVERVI3W. The app has very similar functionality as its predecessor with the added advantage of being able to view everything through a simple web browser.
Please keep in mind that this app is only intended for good purposes. If you have any feedback, please leave it for the dev.
Now you see all calls, text messages and contacts through your web browser. Track down and Lock down your phone remotely.
You can find more information in the application thread.
