To begin with, Cell Tracker is first in the list of spy apps to be installed on your phone. It is a simple cell tracker app that fetches the location of your phone at regular intervals and lets you know about it. The app fetches your locations through GPRS/ wifi connections and thus, enabling GPRS is not compulsory. You can view the location in two different modes: Google Maps or List view. All your locations are saved in the list and you can go through the entire list at the end of the day. There are a few settings as well that you can perform; select time format, choose time interval between two notifications, and choose to display notification every day at a set time. All this can be done from one single place.

Parents/ employers can secretly install the app on their children/ employees device and go through the list of all visited locations. Another secret use of this app is that you can track all the locations where your phone has traveled. Try it out from the link given below.

Ear Spy: Super Hearing:
There is a very famous adage in Hindi that translates into English as “Even walls have ears”. It is said with an intention to warn the speaker to speak in a low voice so that no one else can hear the conversation. Well, with this app this saying seems to be true as you never know who is listening to you. Ear Spy: Super Hearing is an app that lets you spy on others and listen to whatever they are talking about. You can stand at a good distance and still be able to listen to the conversation. All you need is a good pair of headphones.

Next in the list of spy apps is Sneaky Cam. This is a basically an app that lets you click images of others without giving anyone any idea about it. There are different things that you can set on the main interface of the app to fool others. You can set a Google page, an image of a paused temple run game, a dial pad, a black screen or more. The app also lets you customize an interface for the app by choosing any image from the gallery. The screen of your phone showcases the set page and makes the other person believe that you are in the middle of something while you are actually clicking secret pictures. Every time you click a picture your phone vibrates in your hand and there is a notification on the screen that the image has been taken; you can turn off both these features if you want, and ideally you should to maintain the secrecy.
The settings tab of the app can be accessed by using your phone button and there are quite a few things that you can do in here. You can set the image for your screen, choose among different modes, set transparency levels, choose to hide photos from gallery, and a couple more. Try it out from the link given below.

You can start off with the Diagnostics option which generates important information like CPU report, battery stats. Then there is an option to view locations on Radar, a torch with SOS mode enabled, and also a compass to check your position. You can also record audios and the app has devoted a large chunk of space for it. The camera on this app has three different modes: infrared, thermal and security camera.

Spy Voice Recorder:
Spy Voice Recorder is the next among 7 free spy apps reviewed here. This is an app to secretly record audios of your friends, family members, or random things happening around you. The procedure of the app is simple and all you got to do is press the start/ stop button given on the interface. You can listen to the last recorded audio by hitting the play button given alongside, and also the other recorded audios that are saved in the gallery. However, while I was testing the app this function did not work and I could not find the recorded audios; they simply vanished. Also, the app crashed a few times and there were a lot of ads irritating me to the hilt.
However, the app does have the potential of impressing a few users mainly due to its two interesting features. First of them is the amazing interface of the app. You are greeted with a yellow color interface with a cassette printed over it; the colors can be changed from the settings menu. Another good feature is that you can share the recorded audios with your friends through mail; only if you can find them in your gallery (Pun Intended). Nevertheless, try it out from the link given below.

SpyTOOLS is the last of the 7 spy apps reviewed here for you. The fact that it is placed last is the list is just a coincidence and has got nothing to do with its efficiency or usage. In fact, this turns out to be a pretty fine app with different tools that you might require. This app acts as a three in one app as it lets you record secret audios, videos, and take pictures secretly. All the three options are given on the main menu and you have to choose between them according to your needs. In order to make sure that the actions remain a secret, there are various ways that you can use like set a particular time, enable gestures, etc. While the recording is going on, there is wallpaper shown on the screen to misguide others. You can also replace this default wallpaper by importing any image from your gallery.
While you are recording stuff, or taking pictures, there are a few options that you find on your screen. These options reflect different ways to start the recording. You can either set a time, or start recording with a gentle movement, or set a volume level. When the app detects that a certain volume level is reached, the recording will start. There are settings in each of these options that will have to go through while enabling them. In case, you do not understand anything, go through the tutorials given in the settings tab.

So, I have acquainted you with a bunch of good spy apps that you can have on your respective mobile phones to do and record all the mischievous stuff happening around. From recording audios to listening to things around you, from detecting locations to generating mobile stats, these above mentioned apps cover different aspects and cover them efficiently. However, there might be a few occasions when they may not work, but that is quite understandable and worth bearing with. Lastly, since all these spy apps perform different functions, there is not much to compare, or rate which one is better; although I can safely say that due to its technical problems Spy Voice Recorder is a disappointment.
