I have a parent who is dealing with a bullying problem. Their kid is being bullied by another via text / Snapchat, etc...

They have asked me if I know of any monitoring software (app) for the iPhone that will grab all the texts, emails, and other communication from their kid's phone and send it to them.

They essentially want this:

But for the iPhone so they can deal with the bully and the bully's parents.

Does such an app exist?

Regarding privacy concerns: The phone in question is owned by the parent who asked. The child is still a minor.
