1. Location and GeoFencing
What is a monitoring app which doesn’t monitor location? Spyzie does it effortlessly and much more. Apart from taking a look at and monitoring the current location of the target smartphone, you can also create a geofence. Geofencing in Spyzie is the feature that lets you define a circular perimeter of a set radius on the map. If your target smartphone leaves the boundary, you will get a notification. How cool is that?
