Some useless apps

There are some apps available in play store I don’t know why their creator create them. They record activities like WhatsApp time to open, power off/on time, etc. useless things. I am making listing these apps, so you don’t waste your time.

Kidlogger: Free version of Kidlogger is completely useless maybe some useful for you. If you want to buy premium version then for testing, it is good. It records data like app time when user open it. You can receive this information remotely by installing the app.

Text Tracker: Never use this app because it will hack your Gmail account password. On opening text tracker it will ask your Gmail account & password for sending information remotely. Look: to send any information never need a password. Don’t use it.

SpyTOOLS: Another useless app in play store. Some Java programmers who know how to build an app they are creating these times useless apps maybe because they are free.

Hope you have found best keylogger apps for the Android device. If you think I am missing something Let me know
