So what can you do is, You can simply activate SHADOW and give phone to your friend. When he/her return your phone again ,you can check that whether he or she did an unnecessary/inappropriate things on your phone. SHADOW will record every key event he or she made during that time including very useful info such as Applications he used,Time they use them, key events and etc.
For the parents, What they can do is they can install this app on kid's phone and activate SHADOW and later on parents can check what are the things done by kids during that period. The things in the sense what are the key events they used. Did they search garbage on internet? or Did he/she texting to someone whole the time he/she supposed to study?
There's a small guide in app itself. Refer below if you face some difficulties.
Guidelines to Users
* Install app
* Activate Shadow (You will directed to the Language and Input Settings in your phone. You need to enable SimpleIME and select it as your default input method)
You are good to go. You can view log file using app. And there are so many features(specially you can authenticate app by providing password which prevents the unauthorized access) .Enjoy Shadowing....!!
It's a great idea especially if u get it on a new phone. The problem is that the keyboard changes completely and a bit fiddly too. If one get used to a different input wouldn't want to change for this. If it could run under any sort if input method I would even pay for it.
The dev has several failings in this app. one the teview app doesnt send you to the paage just to google play home page, 2 2.0 was not found and 3 it refused to recognize i was using its keyboard
tells me i have to set it in input even though i have. keyboard is weird. Eventually got it to work but when i hid view log it just opens 4shared, upon manually grabbing the files i was told i didnt have an app to read it
it works as claimed.....serves me well..but i wish we can stil use our old keypad...the simple keypad used is just annoying,lacks so many features.......otherwise this apl is really great !
First off the keyboard is terrible and annoying. Second it keeps saying online mode can only be used with shadow v2.0 and then it takes you to google play store but theres no shadow v2.0 app to download. Good part is i was able to see the log and what was typed into the phone including passwords and messasges, but now it wont work and when it did its in a weird layout, even shows when you delete words so thats cool. HOW DO YOU DOWNLOAD SHADOW V2.0!?
I have to force close app then change keyboard settings and re open for it to acknowledge change . doesn't even record everything. Please kill yourself
Works almost perfectly with the exception of NO search button on the keyboard. I REVIEWED THE APP BUT AS I SUSSPECTED IT IS A LIE TO DOWNLOAD V2.0, NO SUCH DOWNLOAD AVAILABLE AFTER REVIEW AS DEVELOPER FALSELY STATED.
Functions as stated. A very good and helpful app. Would have given 5 stars if not for the virtual keyboard's characteristics. It takes too much space in the screen. The placement of keys and the design gives it all away even to a kid. I am inclined to rate it 5 stars on improvement of keyboard. I have already shared info about this app to some of my friends because of its usefulness.

Says I need to review app & download Shadow V2.0. When I click to do that it takes me to Google Play Store but doesn't find the other version.
Even if I activated SimpleIME in the settings still wont activate.Useless
It says I haven't switched the input method even though I did. It also wouldn't direct me to the 2.0 version when I rated this....0/5 stars on galaxy note 3
Says you can only use online mode after review and installing 2.0, but nothing happens upon clicking link
It works but sometimes its telling me I didn't turn the settings on that it needs to work when I did over and over again. Other then that everythings good.
Gives an error saying I haven't activated simpleIME....but I have. It won't activate. So helpful.
for those who cant get the ime keyboard to change go out of the app and go change it in your settings close app open restart if have to it will work does what it say but having to use the simple keyboard for it work so say if you were trying to catch someone cheating on you most would not like the keyboard and at the bottom right of my phone you can switch to google keyboard really easy and when you do it stops recording the keys so its great for what it is would be perfect if worked with google keyboard
I already selected SimpleIME as input method. But it still prompts me that I have not selected it
Your keyboard style is a bit doubtable so if u would change it as the normal aosp keyboard style then it would be great pleasure ........ Hope u will do soon ..... :)
it is useful but u have confusion u change keyboard to simple ime and u set passwords and passwords and fb passwords and account number are saved in shadow app
I have select the input method ime but then also it is saying that you havent selected please help
When i select the keyboard and go back it says sellect keyboatd when it is
This is a great app it's easy to use and follows key strokes but it would be if they you could use your default keyboard yours is just a little tall and wired made
It doesn't show which application we used and whom we send msg......Ime keyboard is not good upgrd it
it works. but blue colour popup when typing really fishy for others. also, keypad is lame
Won't let me activate after I press the simple ime button
Does not detect SimpleIME keyboard activation.
