FlexiSPY vs competition
It’s obvious that FlexiSPY isn’t the only phone spy app on the market. In fact, it has lots of competition with different features and functions. To know more about each of them, you should research and read reviews for them, but here we quickly have a look at main features which separates FlexiSPY from its major competition products.
- FlexiSPY vs mSpy: in addition to live call spying which is a unique feature of FlexiSPY, the app could be running really in invisible mode which isn’t completely provided by mSpy although the manufacturer claims otherwise. (according to tests run by FlexiSPY) It means that there are ways to detect if mSpy is monitoring on a device.
- FlexiSPY vs MobiStealth: in addition to the previous issues (not offering spying on live calls and being detectable) MobiStealth provides less IM networks monitoring compared to its competitor. Facebook, Viber, Skype and SnapChat are among many platforms it couldn’t access.
- FlexiSPY vs Mobile Spy: the same issues as said above, here with different platforms in regard to IM monitoring.
There are other similar apps such as Highester, SpyEra, SpyBubble and so on. But the important point is that if you want that unique feature (live call interception) and an app that is completely undetectable, among other great options available for you, then go for FlexiSPY.
