It would really be helpful to me if I could tell when someone has checked either an SMS, MMS, email, and/or voicemail message that I've left? Is there an app out there that we can use that will send us a notification for when someone has checked these things?

- Currently using a MacBook Pro running OS X Mavericks
- syncs with iPhone 5S, iPod Touch, and iPad Mini

I certainly hope not. It's no one's business to know when I choose to check my email or messages and whether I've chosen to reply or blow them off or simply have other matters of greater priority.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I believe that would be called "spyware," so no.

The closes things is a "read receipt", but it's not standard and only tends to work completely when used within a homogenous corporate environment where everyone is using the same e-mail system and client.

It's not "Spyware" by any means. Actually it's built into some SMS/MMS systems on some phones. Heck, my old Palm 700P would put a check mark next to an SMS/MMS when the receiving phone acknowledged receipt. That didn't mean the other person had read it, just that the other phone had in fact gotten the message and sent a machine receipt back (maybe it was the network acknowledging that the other phone had gotten it though). It was actually pretty handy and something I miss in the iPhone.

Some cell company is now advertising this feaster on one of the new Blackberry's IIRC.

SMS receipts are sent when the carrier receives them, not the end recipient. So no guarantees there.... (it's certainly that way in the UK.... not sure about other countries)

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
