Courtney Andree says, "You shouldn't cheat and anything designed to help you do that is just, it's unethical."
The application intercepts calls and texts from your mystery lovers, stores them in a disguised program and allows you to see it when the time is right.
CATE's creator, a Florida cop, says she's been on the market 15 days and so far 7,000 people have purchased it, and 71% are women.
The application costs $2.99 and most people WGNO encountered are stunned there's actually an app designed for cheaters to help them cover their digital tracks, yet digital forensic experts warn anything you do on a phone and computer can come back to haunt you.
"We've actually done security assessments of applications that let you hide data and things securely, and almost none of them withstand forensics analysis," says Andrew Case, Senior Security Analyst for Digital Forensics Solutions. "It probably works on the average user, but once it goes to court and the court is giving your cell phone to a forensics team all that data is going to come out anyway."
The applications creator Phillip Immler says right now it's only available on the Android market, but will soon be available for Blackberry users. He does not plan on releasing the app for iPhone users.
You can purchase the application directly on your android device or by emailing Immler at: email@example.com.
