Google Banned Spy App from Droid Market after only 18 Hours

Droid Does…Not!

The same SMS Secret Replicator App that you were about to download onto your Android phone is no longer available. The application, meant for nothing other than spying, hit the market several weeks ago and not even 24 hours later, it was yanked. Google banned the sale of the app, suggesting that it was a violation of privacy.

The app, created by DLP Mobile, would have been a foolproof method of spying on your significant other. Once installed onto your loved one’s phone, the app would blindly forward all their incoming text messages to your phone, without even a suspicion. I’m sure many Droid user were ready to beast on this new app but unfortunately it is no longer. 18 hours on the market should be a record.

When the App was created by DLP Mobile they were very clear on how the app would work:

“”Grab your boyfriend’s phone while he is in the shower. Download our app onto his Android phone and the app runs secretly, unable to be detected, BCC’ing you with all his incoming texts. Find out salacious details and he’ll have no idea you’re on to him. Perfect. Perfectly cruel.”

The app was set for at $4.99- a small price to pay for all the priceless, juicy, and scandalous evidence you were expecting to find. So sad to see it go so quickly.

According to SiliconRepublic, DLP Mobile tried selling an iPhone version of the app. They were highly unsuccessful.
