MobiStealth Review of this Old Reliable Spy Software

spy app features

I’ve written this review for the purpose of explaining why Mobistealth is considered one of the most reliable spy programs out there. Being one of the oldest as well, I’m going to reflect on how it keeps up with its competition and its new features.

Hopefully, upon reading this review, you will have a much clearer idea about what this spy phone app can offer. As always, I’m reviewing the spy software which I have installed on my test phone.
Also, as usual, I’m not going to tell you flat-out if it’s best ever, since, in my opinion, there are no absolutes when it comes spy software. I can only provide you with my relatively objective view, and it’s up to you to draw a conclusion.

Mobistealth is in direct competition with another very popular spy app – mSpy software. Spyzrus.net have a very detailed review of mSpy on their website – a decent cell phone spy review site worth  a look if you want to compare.

Interesting Trivia About MobiStealth

I know, tradition doesn’t mean much when it comes to technology, but I find it interesting that this is one of the oldest cell phone monitoring apps, still going strong since 2003, and it managed to do that without changing its name even once.

mobistealth reviews

This feat is even more amazing when you remember that a lot scams simply change their name to distance themselves from bad press. Also, it’s made by a U.S. company based in Florida. This is significant because it is much more difficult to run a scam in the US, than in some small country with, shall we say, less than strict laws.

All financial transactions are carried out via PayPal, which bans all scams once it detects them. You won’t have to deal with shady broker sites and possibly lose your money in the process.

A good indication of how serious the company is, is their official website.

If you visit Mobistealth’s website , you will see that their website is regularly maintained and informative, and if you browse through it, you will an actual phone number, a real address and full contact information.

I don’t know about you, but running into these on a website has been a rare occurrence for me lately, so I applaud this. Also, they have A+ Better Business Bureau rating, and they have shipped more than 150,000 units. You will also find numerous user testimonials and mentions in the press, which indicates the status they enjoy.

Obviously, you’re not here to read about their website, but I’m using it to make a point. Yes, anyone can make a great website, write fake testimonials, or lie about their sales, but you can’t fake all of it.

Aside from the features, you should also be looking for a spy software company with a good reputation that you can place your trust in, which is often overlooked by most people. Great advertising doesn’t necessarily mean a good product, and there is a lot of junk out there.

The point is, Mobistealth is one of the most trusted and renowned monitoring programs on the market today. Let’s have a look at it and see how well it does its job.

Compatibility

This spy app supports a wide spectrum of cell phones and operating systems, and I’ll try and update this article in case new releases appear. Android tablet devices, as well as iPad, are also supported, provided that you match Mobi Stealth with a compatible version of the OS.

The list is not limited to just Android and iPhone/iPad. You can use this software on BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms, too.

They also make a very popular computer monitoring spy software.

Here’s a quick rundown of the supported operating systems:

  1. Android – all versions
  2. iPhone – up to   9.x.x
  3. BlackBerry – up to 7.1
  4. Windows Mobile version 6. Only
  5. Symbian – up to version 9.5

Apart from this list, take some time to visit their website for a full and regularly updated list of supported devices and operating systems.

The Main Spy Featuresspy app features

Like all top spy apps, this one provides you with all the basic monitoring features: text and call logging, emails, GPS tracking, web browsing history, video and photo files, and contacts. Mobistealth is unique because of how they arrange their pricing of packages that contain advanced features.

In essence, you can choose between two packages: the Standard package, to which you can add their Live Control Panel, which is sold separately in the shape of an add-on. I was pleasantly surprised to find that their Standard package includes many advanced features for which you would have to pay extra if you went with another spy app. The full featured package has 3 different term contracts available:

  • 3 months – $79.99
  • 6 months – $129.99
  • 12 months – $199.99

The package is their top of the range version which includes their call recording and offers the most advanced features. You will notice that it is a lot cheaper than its competitors. I’ll get into the advanced features provided by the Control Panel a bit later.

The Standard Package

I’ll get to the point straight away, because you get a bunch of stuff when choose their Standard Package.

Social Media and Messenger Monitoring
You can monitor Facebook and Twitter activity, as well as WhatsApp messenger, Windows Live, AOL, BlackBerry, GTalk, and iMessage for iPhone/iPad. That’s a lot of toys you get for no extra charge. Their list of supported social media sites and messengers is pretty decent.

YouTube

BlackBerry Pin Messages – BlackBerry users will appreciate this.

Gmail – Email reporting

Apps Installed and App Blocking
Tells which apps are downloaded and installed to the target cell phone, and allows you to block the selected ones or all of them, without having to use the phone settings. You simply use the control panel.

Remote Controls
Allows for remote actions through the use of dashboard. This will let you lock or unlock the target phone, delete files, receive SIM card information, or, in case you want to quit monitoring, delete the spy software altogether.

Dashboard Information
This allows you to see all the information on the cell phone: OS version, the time of the last update, Wi-Fi settings and battery level. Your device of choice can be a PC, laptop, table or another cell phone – it doesn’t matter. It will work.

Once again, you get all of these as part of the Standard package, without having to pay extra. Now, let’s get back to the Premium Plus package.

  • Call recording – for Android devices – calls can be recorded!
  • Record Phone Surroundings – Allows you to use the target phone as a bugging device.
  • Logs by Email – You can set it up to send some or all logs from the dashboard to your email account.

That’s not all of them, but you get the general idea. Most users won’t need these advanced features. Note that some features are phone or OS specific. BlackBerry Pin Messages Monitoring will not work on Android, obviously.

Mobistealth Online Demo

You should take a look at the Demo account they have set up on their official website, which allows you to get a taste of operating an online dashboard. They’ve updated it fairly recently, with everything being laid out more clearly and much easier to find.

They also give out discounts if you purchase multiple licenses, which is something that will be welcomed by small businesses or parents monitoring their children.

Before You Buy

I always end my reviews contemplating if the spy software I have tested is the best, and I always give the same answer: it depends on your needs.

As for Mobistealth cell phone spy – it is great piece of software which has a lot going for it, namely support and reliability, and, most of all, great value for money. In fact, it is probably the best choice for those who are getting into the spy software world for the first time.

When compared to mSpy it lacks a few features and social media monitoring features but, on the other hand, it is significantly cheaper – and offers call recording for Android. Mobistealth is constantly adding new features to catch up with their competitors, and they have overtaken many of them in the process.

If you remember, at the beginning I talked about how important it is to find reliable software from a company you can trust. MobiStealth is the very essence of that, and I can only advise that you give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed.

High-Tech Training: The Rise of the Elliptical Machine

elliptical technology

We live in a society that is obsessed with the superficial. Looks have never been more important. And as far as looks go, there is just about a million different ways to achieve the desired physique. Some use Botox, or plastic surgery, others go on diets to lose weight, or use various (and dubious) weight loss products. Some resort to exercising tirelessly to get in shape.

Honestly, the latter is the only effective way to lose weight and get healthy but most people are not willing to put in the effort. A Healthy diet combined with regular exercise – we all know this is the only real answer but it is difficult and no quick fix!

We all seem to be interested in the easy way and that is perfectly understandable since exercising, in addition to being difficult, can be tedious and repetitive, and your motivation will begin to wane slowly. Also, most people can’t find the time to go to the gym regularly.

This is part of the reason why home exercise systems are becoming more and more popular among workout enthusiasts. This is especially true of elliptical trainers, a relative newcomer to the home exercise market.

What’s So Special about Elliptical Machines?

Why elliptical trainers? What sets them apart from your usual home exercise equipment, such as treadmills or stationary bikes? Why are their sales skyrocketing? There are several reasons for this. First of all, elliptical trainers provide you with a low-impact workout and the same cannot be said for treadmills.elliptical technology

Putting all of your weight on one leg during the workout puts too much strain on your joints and tendons, which can cause injury in the long run. Also, you will notice that most exercise machines are designed to target either your lower or upper body or simply a specific group of muscles, which means you would need several workout units in order to exercise your entire body.

Elliptical trainers, on the other hand, provide you with a full body workout. You exercise your lower body as you put in effort to operate to foot pedals, and your upper body, as you operate the handlebars. This effectively means that there is no more need for you to purchase several exercise machines.

You can find out more about elliptical machines by visiting www.ellipticalmachineadvice.com, which offers an in-depth overview of numerous models, full reviews and their pros and cons.

Furthermore, elliptical trainers have really embraced technology and people love their tech these days! All of them have a central console and an LCD panel, which allows you to choose one of the pre-set workout routines, and find the one that fits your needs best. Also, a lot of them are equipped with sound systems and ports for portable music players, which gives a whole new dimension to exercising and keeps it from getting stale. The designers really Get the benefits of added technology on the user – both as entertainment and advanced exercise routines.

One additional benefit of elliptical trainers becoming more popular is the fact that their price keeps going down steadily. They used to costs thousands of dollars. Top-of-the-line models crammed with latest technology still cost that much, but there are now many affordable models which anyone can get for several hundred dollars.

Getting in shape and staying there has never been easier and more accessible, and you should wait no further to start thinking about your health. You have to invest in your health and home exercise appeals to many people with busy lifestyles. Ellipticals help by bringing something really advanced and modern and by keeping things interesting – exercise is never boring with one of these machines!

Case Study: Nursing Salary Guide Website

Developing a recognized brand used to be a job solely reserved for advertising agencies with huge budgets. If you had a product you wanted to sell, or a service you provided and you wanted to promote it, it was simply a matter of paying a certain amount of money to ad agencies and their marketing experts would promote your brand via ads in the newspapers, on radio or TV – the three dominant mediums.

When the internet developed, it took a while for advertisers to catch up and realize the potential that lay in online advertising. When the number of people that were online skyrocketed, there was no doubt as to whether or not online marketing made sense. Best of all, online marketing doesn’t require millions of dollars to successfully establish a brand. You can still do that, since it doesn’t hurt to spend a bit more to have a more aggressive campaign, but it all comes down to creativity and proper SEO. Now even small businesses can create real brands – to their advantage – and at minimal cost.

I got into online marketing a few years ago when the whole thing was taking off, helping small businesses develop a brand and increase their sales. One of the projects I have been working on is a website that provided information for those looking to have careers in medicine – specifically nursing careers – check it out here. It features all the essential data one might require, with a detailed breakdown of various specialty nurse salaries across the states. Right from the start the owner wanted to create a branded image for the site.nurse case study

A Step by Step Approach

The first thing I improved upon was the page’s SEO elements, to make it more search engine-friendly. I did that by setting up a blog where content was posted on a regular basis, and also by incorporating interactive charts and tables. Also, I set up Facebook, Twitter and Muckrack accounts in order to spread awareness about the website throughout social networks. I have also set up a YouTube channel, where videos would be posted; sharing all the crucial information the readers might like to hear. All of this is really easy to do and it is important to create a real presence across the main social platforms.

One of the most important reasons for maintaining the social side of the site is to provide the opportunity to network with other sites and businesses in this space. Connecting with similar websites and exchanging links helped a great deal with the growth and profile of the site. The website’s traffic has increased 20% already, and it will continue to grow in long term.

It took a while, but I think that most are beginning to realize how powerful of a medium the internet can actually be. Taking advantage of the potential that social networks have to offer is a major part of the puzzle. The potential for growth is virtually unlimited, and new social networks are appearing every day, presenting new opportunities to reach out and form alliances. Each of them bring something new to the table, and those who are in the internet marketing world have to keep up constantly if they want to keep the edge.

Perhaps the best thing about developing a brand online, is that is costs only a fraction of the money one would spend to develop a brand and market a product or a service on mainstream media such as television. My opinion is that this is only the beginning, and that in the next 10-15 years, we will see the focus of marketing being shifted towards the internet completely, with new ways of promotion and advertising constantly being invented. The social interaction is of course only one element of the jigsaw that is online marketing – but a very productive element if used well.

Google Secrets, Tips and Tricks

search_google_33

Let’s be honest, Google is now as far away as possible from their original credo: Don’t be evil. It’s just another money-hungry IT giant bent on getting more profit and more control, while it monopolizes the market in its spare time. Like it or not, it’s still the number one search in the world, and still the best, even though some of its competitors, like Bing, or Yahoo have the edge when it comes to certain things, but they are nowhere near jeopardizing Google position as the world’s most popular search engine.

But, even though we use Google all the time, most of us still don’t know all the ins and outs of it. Of course, we are not talking about the stuff underneath the hood, or behind closed doors, because that’s a closely guarded secret. What we are talking about are little known tips and tricks that will help you get more accurate search results. So, let’s get straight to the point, shall we?

Google Reverse Image Search

Before you go and think of us as amateurs, we started with this one, because we were stunned by the number of people who weren’t even aware that Google’s reverse image search existed.search_google_33 They were like, what? This is one of our favorite things about Google. You have a photo of something, and you want to trace it back to its source, or find other images from the same gallery. Simply drag and drop it into the image search box, let Google do its magic, and voila! You are provided with a list of all the websites that host the same image.

Search Any Website through Google

There are a lot of great websites out there that we like, but some of them could use a better search algorithm, because more often than not, the search doesn’t return any useful results, or any at all, even though we know the page exists, because we were on it at the time. Even YouTube, which is owned by Google, doesn’t return some of the videos we have already watched. That’s where Google comes in.

For instance, if you want to search a particular site, let’s say YouTube, since we’ve mentioned it, you can simply type site: youtube.com, followed by the terms you wish to search. You can use this for pretty much anything other than websites, including forums, blogs, video streams, web services, free downloads and more. Simply put, it can find anything.

Using Operators to Fine-Tune Your Google Search

For those among you who are electrical engineers, software develops or web designers, the use of operators is something you perform on a daily basis. But, if you don’t belong in any of the former categories, you are probably not familiar with them. Operators are a useful tool that should be used by everyone, not just experts. You may have even used some of them, without being aware of it. For instance, words “and” and “or” are operators, as well, which allow you to search multiple terms. But, what you probably don’t know is that you can use “around”, which is sort of like a mix of regular search and search with the use of quotes.

Also, “around(2)” can be used when you want the terms to be in proximity to each other, but not in a specific order. Changing the number inside the parentheses allows you to fine-tune the level of accuracy. Last, but not least, you can also exclude a certain word from your search completely. You do this simply by typing a dash in front of the terms you don’t want searched. This also works for websites, which lets narrow down the search results even further.
