mSpy Innovative Features
One of the more interesting features of this software is the ability to control apps and other programs. For parents monitoring children, this provides a great parental lock tool or alternative route to monitor the time spent playing games. For business owners monitoring employees, this helps circumvent the download of applications that pose security threats to proprietary data. This innovative feature is not found on other systems.
The analysis feature also seems fairly impressive. This tool allows the person in charge of monitoring to take a look into multiple devices. The reports can be filtered by time period, device, activity, a particular user or a group of users. The information is available for download into .csv, .xls or .pdf.

mSpy Installation Process
Here is a screen shot from the mSpy website of the installation process:
Both jailbreak and no jailbreak option.
The innovated features are unique for mSpy and if you use these it is money well spend.
Keep Data Secure
Of course, data security is at a premium nowadays. The device wipeout feature on this product allows a user to remotely delete data from a device. This action removes sensitive data when a phone is lost or stolen. Because this is a permanent and rather drastic action, the product also comes with a locked device feature. This capability allows the user to remotely lock the monitored device, allowing time for a lost phone to be found yet still protecting the data.
Another considerations include the control panel looks, which very much like iTunes. It has a clean, organized lay out and is intuitive and easy to use.
Depending on if you use the control apps and other software feature mSpy is a little pricier than other options in the cell phone spyware category. If you use all the features it can be well worth it, if not you might be better off picking another cell phone monitoring software.
Money back guarantee
I have heard from two people that said mSpy tried to prolong the process when they wanted their money back. The process back and forth took longer than 10 days and therefor they did not get their money back.
I just want to be completely honest with you on this one… Do your research read through this page and make sure this is the software for you. If it is then you are good to go.
