Hi, and welcome to The Tool Report.

At The Tool Report we focus on creating quality content to help our readers learn more about smartphone apps, security, and operating systems.

The internet has made our lives easier than ever. But it’s also made it easy for scammers to make targets out of unsuspecting buyers. We know this from direct experience.

As a result, we take our independent product testing very seriously and only recommend products that pass a vigorous testing process. You can read more about our review process below.

Our articles feature various types of software for monitoring and tracking smartphones. This includes cell phone surveillance apps and tracking apps. We’ve reviewed dozens of surveillance apps and parental monitoring apps in an effort to help our readers make informed buying decisions.

Our Review Process

Our software testing process involves downloading and installing apps on both iOS and Android phones. We test a variety of attributes including features, ease-of-installation, ease-of-use, reliability, and customer support.

Our “best of” articles contain our top performing apps. These apps have been compared against all the others to determine which offers the most bang for the buck. Whether it’s a parental control app or anti-virus software, we make sure our readers understand exactly what they’re getting.

Our “How to” articles come from personal experience. Producing high-quality step-by-step instructions is an important part of ensuring our readers know exactly how to perform whatever tasks they need to on their devices.

Submit Questions or Content Ideas

Most of our content comes from questions or suggestions about topics of interest to our readers. If you have a question regarding smartphone security, parental control apps, surveillance app reviews, or any other smartphone questions, please feel free to email us at [email protected]

Jason Thompson – Apps & Software

With over 25 years in the information and internet security industry I am passionate about smartphones, gadgets, and technology. I’ve also got a solid background in programming and software. This includes python, C++, app development and more.

Most of his recent career has been devoted to programming in smartphone apps for both iOS and Android devices. This knowledge makes him an expert on phone security features as well as methods of enhancing the security of a phone. He has tackled many of our more challenging tech related articles.

As our children have grown, and now have cell phones, I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to fairly manage their time online. As such I’ve tested a great many software packages designed to handle these tasks. You’ll find all of these reviews in our software section.

If you would like to get in contact with me, please email me at [email protected]. You can also find me on Linkedin.

We hope you’ll come back often to check out our site.  We’re constantly updating our content and adding new software reviews.
