Mobile spyware can have a devastating effect on your life; the constant fear that a spouse, significant other or even employer is following your every move, knows everything about your life and has completely removed any vestige of privacy. (If you have any doubt about this, read the comments from readers from our March 2012 story on mobile spyware ).

And spyware is not as rare as you may think. According to mobile security company Lookout , .24% of Android phones they scanned in the U.S. had surveillance-ware installed intended to target a specific individual. Sophos  reports a similar .2% infection rate from spyware. If those numbers hold true for Android users in general, that would mean tens of thousands could be infected.

We wrote about spy apps for the iPhone previously and think that it is about time to list down some for Android devices as well. This list features some of the more creative uses of smart Android devices from sending secret messages or calls to tracking down someone’s location .

Again, don’t take this as a challenge to go on imaginary missions like a wannabe spy and getting yourself into trouble for all the wrong reasons. These apps can be used for many legitimate reasons that have little to do with turning into James Bond and getting into fights on top of a train, chasing down bad guys and kicking their butts like Bourne, or wearing amazing disguises and using mind-blowing gadgets like Ethan Hunt.

Have someone you need to track? Like a delivery guy or a sales rep for your business? If you give them a company phone, having cell tracker on it can log down their location, where and when they have been to a place, every half hour. Cell Tracker automatically collects the location of the device holder through WiFi/GPRS . Tap on ‘View Now’ to see the list of location the target device had visited.
