Permissions

Why does CellMapper need so many permissions?
"make and manage phone calls" - This is required to get low level network data from your device
"access to device location" - In order to map and contribute, we will need to know where the data was recorded from your device.

Older versions of Android:
android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION - To get CellID information
android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - To get GPS location
android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - To get Cellular network information
android.permission.INTERNET - To connect to server to download map data / upload data
android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - To write external CSV file if no internet connection
android.permission.READ_LOGS - To read Samsung Field Test Mode data on Android 4.1 and earlier (despite what the dialog says, the app cannot read your browsing history unless your browser write it to the system log)
android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE - To read info about airplane mode / network settings
android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED - To start at boot time (if enabled)
android.permission.VIBRATE - To vibrate on CellID change (if enabled)

This map is essential for getting the truth of coverage. Nationwide means the carrier lied! You probably don't need the app if you aren't contributing though, just go to the map on website. And if you are contributing--It's a learning curve. This a technical field that some would prefer left obtuse for their own gain. And then there are the problematic implementations by the phone manufacturer... This app is just about as perfect as it can be.

Used to be good, not so much now. When I first started using the app, it added the data liked they advertised, within a week. Sometime during the summer, my data stopped showing up. I complained, and they suggested I try the premium service and data would show up within hours. All it did was return the weekly updates for the first month. By the second month, the data is taking about a month. I've now cancelled, and I'm not sure I'll do anymore collections. 2020/03/05: there data updates are good

Seemed OK at first. But didn't explain enough to a person with limited operational knowledge. Needed to be able to actually input my carrier. Also, I just wanted to see the closest towers to me to decide which provider I would like to switch to. I am on Total Wireless and it seems to not be a good choice for my locality. I think this app is great for very knowledgeable people but, I think for a newbie, not as much. Great job for who it is designed for. Wasn't a fit for me. 😕
