A controversial application, which allows users to forward copies of all incoming SMS messages to a different phone, has been removed from the Android Marketplace for violating the service’s content policy.

The app, called the “Secret SMS Replicator,” was created by DLP Mobile, a software developer cattering for various platforms, including iOS, Android and BlackBerry OS.

In a blog post, the company describes the new application as “a tremendously useful and potentially insidious tool” and makes no effort to hide its intended purpose.

One potential use of this app might be the following: Grab your boyfriend’s phone while he is in the shower.

Download our app onto his Android phone and the app runs secretly, unable to be detected, BCC’ing you with all his incoming texts.

Find out salacious details and he’ll have no idea you’re on to him. Perfect. Perfectly cruel,” the company says.
