Here are a few cool iPhone spy apps for the iPhone spy on a budget….
All the iPhone spy apps listed below range anywhere from FREE to $50 bucks. Keep in mind that not all these apps are advertised as an iPhone spy app, but with a little bit of imagination, they can be a great low cost way to monitor an iPhone.
LESS THAN A BUCK
FIND MY IPHONE (part of the MobileMe service)
HOW MUCH? FREE for the first 60 days, then $99 per year after.
WHAT DOES IT DO? ‘Find My iPhone’ is part of Apple’s MobileMe service used to locate a lost or stolen iPhone. However, it’s also a great tool for anyone who wants to track an iPhone. Once you set it up on an iPhone, you can instantly get updates on their location via your online MobileMe account. You’ll also get to see the contacts they have stored on their phone, so you know who they are calling.
You do need to purchase a MobileMe account (you can sign up for a 60 day free trial, so you can get started without paying a dime), and then set it up on the iPhone you want to track, but once you do its a pretty cool way to track someone. Here is a screenshot of how the service looks when you track an iPhone.
As you can see, once you log onto your MobileMe account to track the iPhone, you do get a pretty good picture of where your special someone is.
What makes this iPhone tracking app stand apart from the other iPhone tracking apps on the app store, is with the ‘Find My iPhone’ service, you don’t have to worry about jailbreaking the iPhone.

WHAT DOES IT DO? This iPhone spy app will turn your iPhone into a spy camera. The way this iPhone spy app works, is that it enables you to snap photos based on various triggers.

WHAT DOES IT DO? This iPhone app is designed to record the sounds you make while you are asleep. The app starts to record based on the audio triggers you set. This means you can leave your iPhone somewhere, such as under your car seat, in a room while you go to the bathroom, or even under your bed if you want to see what happens when you are not around. The possibilities of using this app as a covert recording app are endless. Features include being able to adjust the sensitivity of the mic, transfer your files via WiFi, and an option to have new audio files every time a new recording takes place, or make one continuous recording.
This iPhone spy app also has a cool design to it. Check out the screen shots below.

LESS THAN $50 BUCKS
How Much? $49.97 (3 month license)
Not many people realize that you can purchase a feature rich iPhone spy app for less than $50. Mobile Spy was the first company to sell spy software built exclusively for the iPhone. Mobile Spy’s iPhone spy app has a great set of spy phone features that should be more than enough for anyone who wants to monitor an iPhone. Features include the following:
- View Call Logs – Each incoming and outgoing number is logged along with duration and time stamp.
- Read Text Messages - Every text message is logged even if the phone’s logs are deleted. Includes full text.
- iPhone GPS Tracking – GPS postions are uploaded every thirty minutes with a link to a map.
- Browser History – Every website visited in Safari will be recorded into a list inside your account.
- View Photos – View photos snapped on the target’s iPhone. (New Feature)
All of this for only $50 bucks. In my opinion, this is great value for the money.
Here is a snapshot of how the user account looks when looking up the iPhone’s location history. If you click on the ‘view map’ link, you’ll be taken to Google Maps, to see where the GPS coordinates are on a map.
