US company Flexispy has come up with a slice of spy software pie that will have fans of infidelity quaking in their cheating boots.

Simply install Flexispy onto the phone you wish to monitor (for example the Nokia pictured above), set up the access number –the number you want to use to call the phone in order to spy on it – and you’re off.

There are two versions of the software: Lite and Pro. The Pro version acts as a data logger, recording call history, duration, MMS headers, GPRS activity and as the site cheerfully claims ‘much, much more!’

You'll also be able to time your spy reports (pictured above left) to regular intervals or whenever you feel like an extra snoop.

The real killer feature, though, is the ability to dial in to an unsuspecting user’s phone and listen in – not only to conversations but also ambient sounds around the phone.

We prefer the old ‘phone in the pocket, accidentally ring someone’ technique when we absolutely must give away our whereabouts and private conversations.

Legally, you could find yourself in hot water should you attempt to spy on other people without obtaining their permission.

However, you’re fine to use Flexispy against your own family, provided you’re the bill-payer and therefore technically own the phone. You’re just protecting your property then. Think on…

The Pro version is not out yet but, if you really want to perfect creepy spying techniques, the Lite version is.
