BREAKING NEWS: The StealthGenie Site Is Offline
It should be added that for the time being, StealthGenie have gone offline. If you’re one of the purchasers of this software, and are unable to contact StealthGenie support, or couldn’t get a StealthGenie refund, then we recommend that you head over to the FlexiSPY Trade In Program, where they will take StealthGenie off your hands.
Skype is one of the most popular instant messaging programs on both computers and smartphones so, if you want to spy on someone else’s Skype conversations you need to make sure that the spy phone software you choose really offers Skype capturing. Not only that but, if it does offer Skype IM capturing, that it really captures all of the Skype conversation.
With the popularity of shared rich media such as stickers, emoticons, location, contacts and even files rich media is just as important to show emotions and feelings in a conversation as the actual conversation text. That is why spyphone software that advertises IM capturing as one of its features better make sure that more than just the text is captured otherwise many important parts of the conversation can potentially be missed.
This article will compare both FlexiSPY and StealthGenie to see not just if one captures Skype compared to the other but also how much of the Skype conversation is actually captured. If you take a look at the StealthGenie website currently they advertise a total of 8 IM services to be captured (Facebook, iMessage, Whatsapp, GTalk, BBM, Skype, BB PIN and Viber) whilst FlexiSPY captures a total of 13 IM services – both products advertise Skype capturing.
However when you focus solely on Android IM services captured FlexiSPY definitely has the upper hand and support 8 IM services compared to only 5 offered by StealthGenie (Whatsapp, Viber, Skype, Facebook and BBM). This means that FlexiSPY captures twice the number of IM services for Android – including Skype which already gives FlexiSPY the upper hand.
StealthGenie only really offers limited Skype IM capturing
Skype IM capturing by StealthGenie is very limited. What happens is that StealthGenie only actually captures the text part of the Skype IM conversation and not the rich media – unless the rich media is saved by the TARGET phone owner during the Skype conversation.
This not only means that StealthGenie gives you huge chunks of missing data inside any captured Skype IM conversation but it also means that any saved media from the Skype conversation is saved in the Photos, Videos or Music sections of the StealthGenie web account.
So you have to then search through that data to try and piece together the missing chunks to find out which picture or rich media went with which comment.
This is not exactly ideal if you want to know all the secrets of a Skype IM conversation because it means you waste time having to piece together the conversation yourself when StealthGenie should have done it for you.
Luckily FlexiSPY captures Skype IM conversations the correct way.
FlexiSPY captures the complete Skype experience – including rich media
Using FlexiSPY we sent the same Skype data from the Android TARGET device and the iPhone and back again and then logged in to the FlexiSPY online account to see the results.
FlexiSPY captured the Skype conversation and rich media correctly as you can see from the screenshot above. Not only that but the rich media was captured and displayed as part of the overall captured IM conversation so that means that, unlike StealthGenie, FlexiSPY captures all of Skype in one place so you do not need to spend time looking for captured rich media trying to figure out what was really said and sent.
FlexiSPY provides the best coverage for spying on Skype
The evidence here speaks for itself.
StealthGenie only really offers the text of the conversation which is no longer enough. FlexiSPY gives you the text and the rich media which means that you get the best possible Skype IM coverage compared to all other competitors. Not only that but StealthGenie are not entirely honest on their website when they advertise IM capturing and the capturing of rich media as we have already discussed.
To see why FlexiSPY offers the best features and compatibility for IM capturing take a look at the table below which shows which IM services are captured by FlexiSPY on which platforms versus that captured by competitors
