Apple has come under criticism in the past for some of the applications that it has approved for its iOS app store, the latest one which has dubious functionality is called SpyKey, and the developer of the app describes it as ‘the only app that let you monitor your PC Keyboard activity in real-time’.
The application also comes with software that you have to install on your PC, called a server application, once it is installed you can then connect your iPhone to your PC and it will log anything that is typed on the PC on your iPhone’s display.
This application could basically be used to spy on anyone and see exactly what they are typing, as the server software could be installed on anyones PC without their knowledge.
The Spy Key application is available for $4.99 from iTunes, I wonder how long it will be before Apple decides to pull this from the iOS App Store.
