I'm trying to find a comuputer program/software....

by matthew.john.howard / April 2, 2009 6:52 AM PDT

I recently found someone that had some kind of program on his computer (a MacBook Pro)that allowed him to find out when people were sending Text Messages around him, and how far away from him they were. I thought that this was an awesome program. I just wanted to find out if anyone knew anything about a program like this, or if it was self-made by him, if anyone knew how to do this.

Thank You.

You mean spying on others?

Or did I understand your post incorrectly?

If I didn't then I am uncertain how we can help. Sorry.

lol, no. I have no intention of spying, it's like a program that recognizes an SMS message being sent from a mobile device, and then announces that there is one being sent, and the distance from the computer it was sent at. I was just taking a shot in the dark to see if anyone knew about it
