When shopping for an Android GPS app, you are going to come across two different types of Android tracking apps. The first one being a “stealth” tracking app, and the other a non-stealth tracking app. Although both of these apps do the same thing (which is to track the location of any Android cell phone) they both are geared towards a certain type of consumer, so before you spend any of your hard earned cash, make sure you know the difference as described below.
NON-Stealth Android GPS App
These are apps that enable you to track the location of an Android cell phone with the user’s knowledge they are being tracked. Common uses for this are social networking apps that enable you to essentially broadcast your location to others so they know where you are. Other uses for this is when you want to inform your family where you are. These Android tracking applications are the most popular, and will be the application of choice for most people. Not only are they the most affordable, but they are found in the Android app store, which makes it easy for you to buy and install.
The key point here is that the app is 100% VISIBLE to the user. This means they know 100% that they are being tracked.
STEALTH Android GPS Apps
Stealth Android tracking applications are marketed towards a different group of buyers. These buyers are people looking for a way to track their spouse to uncover infidelity, secretly keep an eye on their kids, or perhaps monitor employees when they are out in the field. These applications are NOT found within the Android app store, and are generally more expensive than non-stealth Android tracking apps.
The key differentiator is that the user WILL NOT know they are being tracked. This is why stealth Android GPS apps are so popular for anyone who wants to track a cheating spouse, because they are able to do it without their spouse knowing they are being tracked.
So which Android tracking app is best for you? It all depends on your situation and “WHAT” your reasons are for wanting to purchase this type of app. Obviously, if you want to keep track of your family or broadcast your location, then a non-stealth app will work, but if you need to “secretly” track your spouse, kids, or employees, then your best option will be a stealth Android tracking app.
