If you're the type of person who wants to keep tabs on your significant other, there won't be an app for that.

A Brazilian Android app called the "Boyfriend Tracker" has been removed from the Google Play App Store after complaints of privacy abuse.

Much like other GPS apps, the "boyfriend tracker" sends users’ location updates.

But here's the creepy part: It also sends copies of text messages!

And it even has a function that lets the girlfriend listen in on whatever her man is doing just by placing a so-called silent call to the boyfriend.
