    this is why Apple locks down iOS, to prevent things like spyware, etc. If your iphone is stock only code signed by Apple is allowed to run thus preventing spyware and the likes.

    Even jailbroken you are pretty safe from such things as long as you avoid sketchy apps and repos.

    Perhaps you should define what you mean by 'spy applications'.

    Spy application is the kind of application that Monitor your iPhone and send every thing you do on the iPhone to the person who has installed the spy application on your iPhone

    I heard from a friend that there are a lot of these apps but because apple doesn't allow people to install apps not from the app store so that's why non-jailbroken iPhone is protected from spyware app

    Then you should ask your friend what the apps are.

    In fact I am not looking to find apps like these, the only thing that I wanted to make sure from you expert people that you can't install any kind of apps on a NONJAILBROKEN iPhone not from the app store ( apple application store )

    On a stock iphone the only apps you can install are Apple verified/approved apps from the appstore. That's it.
    The only thing close thing to monitoring another iphone as far as location goes is find my iphone from the appstore.
