If we compare this application with the Cerberus anti-theft app, these two apps have similar tracking features. But this app has some unique features such as Whatsapp controlling, camera gallery browsing, files sync. However this application has a recurring payment system, but Cerberus has a one time payment. Though I can say, Cerberus is more stable than TheftSpy. It will be change after the final version released. You can read Cerberus app review in here.
