Spying usually isn’t considered a healthy and positive activity or unless it is done to prevent someone (or yourself) from unfortunate misdeeds or incidents. Intending to protect loved ones, various companies have developed spying apps offering a variety of features. There’s a lot of junk spy apps available in the market which has made this selection quite challenging. In this review article, we are going to assess the two best spying apps: SPY24 and Xnspy. Our evaluation isn’t generic, rather based on five basic comparison factors: Installation, compatibility, pricing, features, and performance. spying applications : SPY24
Comparison Review Installation
SPY24 is an easy to install software with a user-friendly interface. All you need is a subscription and physical access to the monitored device. In the case of non-jailbroken iOS devices, you need iPhone credentials of the device along with the subscription plan. Once you have subscribed to SPY24, you will receive a follow-up e-mail to download the software. After the installation, you are all set to track the activities of the monitored device through a web-based control panel.
Xnspy is also a user-friendly spy application that can be downloaded on the monitored device within a couple of minutes. After the installation, you can access the activities of the monitored device through a web-based control panel. The data is uploaded to your account when the monitored device is connected to the internet, and you can access it using any internet-ready smartphone or computer.
SPY24 and Xnspy both are easy-to-install applications. Both spy applications are user-friendly and have an interactive web-based control panel. However, we found that SPY24 provides a much easier setup with its side-by-side installation guide. There’s no way you could find yourself stuck while setting up SPY24; the same can’t be said for Xnspy.
Compatibility is the first and foremost factor that helps a customer in the decision-making process. Without ensuring that your device is compatible with the application, you can’t go with buying a spyware program.
- Android Version:
SPY24 is compatible with all Android OS devices running from OS 4.0 up to OS 10.0
- iOS Version:
SPY24 offers two iOS versions:
- Jailbreak: SPY24 is compatible with all jailbroken iOS devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPods running from iOS 6.0 up to iOS 9.0.2.
- Without Jailbreak: SPY24 works with all iOS devices without Jailbreak, running between iOS 6.0 and iOS 14.0.1
- Android Version:
Currently, Xnspy is compatible with all Android devices running Android OS 2.2 up to OS 7.x.
- iOS Version:
Xnspy is compatible with all iOS jailbroken devices running iOS 4.0 up to iOS 10.X. It isn’t compatible with the non-jailbroken iOS devices.
In terms of compatibility, SPY24 takes the lead as it is compatible with the latest mobile OS versions. Xnspy hasn’t released its updated version of the app for so long. This shows that it doesn’t work with the latest Android and iOS devices. Furthermore, Xnspy doesn’t support iOS devices without jailbreak. Limited compatibility of Xnspy makes it harder to use with the latest OS devices.
Most of the mobile monitoring applications proffer their services at high prices, not realizing that it’s the single-most-important factor when it comes to customers making a purchase decision. Let’s what these spyware programs are taking from us for their services.
SPY24 spying applications
SPY24 has two different subscription packages: SPY24 Basic and SPY24 Premium.
For a monthly subscription of basic SPY24 edition, you will be billed $29.99 per month. For a quarterly subscription plan, you will be billed $41.99 quarterly so that you will have to pay $13.99 per month. For a yearly subscription plan, you will be billed $59.99 annually so that you will have to pay $4.99 per month. All the prices mentioned are after a 40% site-wide discount at the time of the review.
For a monthly subscription of premium SPY24 edition, you will be billed $35.99 per month. For a quarterly subscription, you will be billed $59.99 quarterly so that you will have to pay $19.99 per month. For a yearly subscription plan, you will be billed $89.99 annually so that you will have to pay $7.49 per month. Xnspy doesn’t really offer any discounts at all!
Xnspy spying applications
Xnspy offers its services for $21.99 per month. For its three-month subscription plan, you will be billed $18.66 per month. A 6-month subscription plan is for $14.83 per month, and a 12-month subscription plan is for $10.91 per month.

For the basic subscription, there is a slight difference in the prices of the two spying apps. Looking at the basic subscription charges, you may say that SPY24 isn’t the cheapest app. But, it is offering the best pricing plans for long-term customers. Xnspy offers fewer features with the basic edition as compared to SPY24. Additionally, the prices of SPY24 reduces with an increase in the number of subscription months. So, if you want to use spyware for more than a few months, SPY24 has the most reasonable subscription plan for you.

Xnspy – iOS
Xnspy offers all the above-mentioned features for both Android and iOS devices. But, it offers service for iOS jailbroken devices only. Non-jailbroken iOS devices are not compatible with Xnspy.
In terms of features, SPY24 beats Xnspy by offering more features for both its basic and premium users. The incompatibility of Xnspy with non-jailbroken iOS devices makes it less popular. Xnspy proffers limited features for the basic subscription plan as compared to SPY24. However, as aforesaid, it charges a lot even for the basic plan. To access the monitored device remotely, you have to send text commands using Xnspy app, which can make a person suspicious. Xnspy also lacks the ability to track emails. SPY24 leads Xnspy by facilitating the users with more advanced features like geofencing, comprehensive graphical reports, Wi-Fi network logs, and watchlist alerts for words, contacts, emails, and places.
The reviews are the best way to analyze the performance of an application. Here we are going to compare the performance of two spying apps, SPY24 and Xnspy. For the comparison purpose, I have mentioned reviews from the experts as well as the customers.
A well-known app reviewing website, The Spy Software Guide gives its verdict about SPY24:
“It competes directly with Flexispy because of the recording features but at a substantially lower cost. If cost is an issue and you really need call recording – this one is worth considering. It also covers features available from mSpy – although not just as many – and they have the No Jailbreak system for iPhone users. In fact, if the cost is a major issue for you. SPY24 is the lowest priced spy app that I list on the site. I wouldn’t give it a recommendation based on price alone – it still needs to work, and it does.”
A renowned app reviewing website, Trust Pilot gives Xnspy a rating of 5.5 out of 10. While another expert review website, Review Spy apps says: “Though, Xnspy is highly efficient spy software that presents an array of both basic and advanced features, the app scores low on the technical assistance front, as the only mode to communicate is through generating a request ticket on their official site. Besides, some of these features, which increases the cost of this spy product, are some useful, dull features.”
SPY24 spying applications
On the reviewing website Site Jabber, one of the SPY24 customers has shared feedback:
“I am using SPY24 from almost 6 months, and I face a lot of difficulties in the start to make this app work but failed every time. I want to appreciate the support staff the way they helped me in that time. They all helped me to get it fixed. But Katie Ford is the one who helped me last time with the installation and believed me. Its never stopped working from last 3 months, and I really appreciated her knowledge for the phones. Seriously Katie people like you are hard to find and lucky to have. I will suggest EVERYONE contact her to solve your issues. She is the master of this monitoring stuff.” – Louis B.
You can read the reviews of real-time customers of SPY24 from their official website, too. I have mentioned a few here:
“My children were not allowed to go to this summer concert in our city, but I had a feeling they would try anyway. Thankfully, SPY24 gives me alert on specific words, so I went ahead and put in “concert”. Caught my kids sneaking out just in time.” – Camilla Sanchez
“If I did not have SPY24 on my phone I probably would’ve lost my job by now. I forgot my phone at Starbucks, and I wouldn’t have panicked like crazy if my inbox didn’t contain emails from traders. So I just locked vice-versa phone with SPY24 to be sure no one would open it even if they tried. Who knew what would have happened if it went in the wrong hands!” – Natasha Brunelli.
Xnspy spying applications
Here is what a customer has reviewed about Xnspy on a famous reviewing website, Trust Pilot:
“Very Bad experience with there after-sales service, tried to contact them on there support at Xnspy.com and it just sends feedback as complaint received, then no action.tried so many times, I think They have no service team only just a product with the server. worst experience with the truth spy support,” – Bimal Chandran
Cell Spy Apps is another well-known website where a customer has posted about Xnspy:
“I am so dissatisfied. I did the free trial. It worked for a few days. Then when I decided to purchase the Premium package, it never worked. Until today it has been 6 days since it was updated. My money was taken, but no activity. Please refund my money.” – George Jones.
Both SPY24 and Xnspy have a large number of customers. In terms of performance, I can say that SPY24 is doing quite well as it has more satisfied customers. The advanced features and efficient customer support service of SPY24 make its performance way better than Xnspy. Most of the experts and customers have criticized Xnspy for being incompatible with the latest phone versions and also for its worst customer support service.
SPY24 and Xnspy are two amazing spying apps with a large number of customers across the globe. But now we have to affirm a winner for all time. Xnspy provides a 48-hour trial version along with a user-friendly interface but, it isn’t compatible with the latest OS devices, and especially if you have an iOS device, you should really pass the idea of subscribing to Xnspy because unlike SPY24, Xnspy doesn’t have a non-jailbreak version.
On the other hand, SPY24 keeps its software up-to-date by offering high compatibility and advanced features. The advanced features like geo-fencing, remote access to wipe off data, live remote screenshots, watch lists for contacts, words, emails, etc. make SPY24 superior over Xnspy in many ways. SPY24 is providing the customers with detailed actuarial reports which also attract the attention of many experts. Thus, what makes SPY24 the no. 1 spy app is its features, compatibility, and pricing. SPY24’s top-notch customer support service is also referred to as be more efficient than Xnspy. That’s why SPY24 has been tagged as the best spy app for both Android and iOS devices by many review portals.
