    If you are worried about what your child or staff does on your smartphone then a good mobile monitoring software will give you the answers that you need. The optional Live Control Panel allows for cell phone monitor in real time, letting you view the phone’s screen live like a television and get instant GPS locations. 1TopSpy software is preferred more than others because of its reliability and USA based telephone support. After a quick install and setup, you will be able to view text messages, viber messages, GPS locations, whatsapp messages, Facebook messenger, Youtube videos, photos taken and more.

    I hear there are battery issues and the device is consuming more than the earlier Kitkat 4.4.2 version. Anyone experienced this?
