Trust issues? There's an app for that!

Mobile Tracker lets smartphone users keep tabs on every aspect of their partner's digital life, including texts, calls, contacts, Facebook messages and location, all in real time.

And that's just for starters.

Developed by London-based digital surveillance firm mSpy, add-ons include the ability to record phone user's calls, monitor every word they type into the device via keystroke logging and even get notifications if their partner changes their sim card.

With former News of the World editor Andy Coulson just days into his 18-month jail term for conspiring to hack phones, mSpy is aware it could be treading legally dodgy ground, so touts the app as a tool for super-close couples to "mutually" share their every digital move.

The app's small print carries a warning that people must gain permission from the owner of the phone to download the app-come-surveillance software and "Failure to do so may result in a violation of federal or state laws".

However, it also repeatedly refers to the phones being tracked as a "target devices," which sounds a little more like a covert military operation than an agreement between loved-up partners.
