    This isn't brand new, but...

    "Impossible" is a strong word. Does anyone have any experience or info on this?

    Also of note, the app requires root access, so even the official website admits any iOS devices would have to be jailbroken. Given the fact that maybe only 10% of iOS devices are jailbroken (certainly not more than 15%), it would seem this is kind of a limp piece of spyware.

    Haha. Like I said, "impossible" is a strong word...

    Here's

    And any iOS device requires a jailbreak. There goes "100% invisible."
    Sounds like this "FlexiSPY" app is more of a problem.
