AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Popular Android tracking app, SMSTracker (, introduced the SMSTracker "Tracking" poll, by asking its subscribers to answer one question, "if you were the adoptive parent of both President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney, who would you monitor with SMSTracker?"
