For paranoid japanese girlfriends, this is a spyware app/service to keep tabs on a boyfriend's android phone. 3 day free trial, then needs a monthly payment to keep the logs (assuming the logs a trickled to their servers). Tracks app installation/usage, call logs, GPS location (this seems to push GPS location to their server pretty regularly), and a few other odds and ends. The privacy outrage is already starting, but the more interesting part is will it show up under various app killer apps/task managers, and is it killable?
