Coverage Mapper will record and submit cellular signal strength data to a central server, to generate accurate coverage maps for your provider.
Please check out the website (http://www.coveragemapper.com), preferably on a computer, to get a better understanding of the application before downloading it.
As you travel with the application running, it records your device's signal strength, tied to your current location. This data is all uploaded to a central server, where it is aggregated with the data from other users, and averaged into accurate coverage maps that show not just where a provider has coverage, but also how good the coverage is.
This is a beta application. Please report any issues on the forum or by email.
Since this question is frequently asked, install to SD is not an option, because Coverage Mapper runs as a background service, which cannot be moved to the SD card.

Help contribute to our crowdsourced impartial maps of carrier coverage and wireless hotspots by using our app to improve your connection.
Based on our community-generated data we are able to help keep you better connected by giving you a practical solution to the problems of slow mobile internet and dropped calls. Simply follow our signal compass to walk towards better phone signal or see our in-app coverage maps to work out which carrier is best for where you are, useful if you're thinking about changing. Our wifi maps help you find local public-access wireless networks (WAPs), helpful if you're travelling abroad or just want to find a local cafe with free wifi. Our Stats tab helps you to keep track of your usage, so there’s no danger of you going over your plan limit on data, voice or text. (NB – this is why the app needs permission to access contacts and SMS, these are the permissions needed to count calls and texts, messages are never accessed or read!). Slow mobile internet? Whatsapp or BBM not working? Can't make that crucial skype call? Facebook, Instagram or Twitter too slow to be enjoyable? Run a speedtest to see the real speed of your connection, use the signal booster compass to get a better connection or use our maps to find the nearest free wifi!
Best of all, every time you use the app you're helping to improve it! By helping us to expand our wifi database and improve our coverage maps you're making the app work better and everyone else who uses it.
The best tactic for getting better signal is to follow the signal compass.
Maps not updated in real-time. Don’t worry though, we log the information you share with us to improve our coverage maps and signal information. We’re working hard to make sure the data you contribute to the project is available to everyone as quickly as possible.
- Not all towers and wireless routers are in our database - we’re working on it!
- Verizon & Sprint users will see only one connected tower at a time
- Moving in the direction of your cell tower will not always improve reception due to interference effects/local geography.
- Data is crowd sourced - wireless and antenna locations are calculated by triangulation.
- For GSM, cell tower are identified via cell id and location area code (CID and LAC)
- For CDMA (Verizon, Sprint), cell towers are identified via Network ID, Base sub-station ID and system ID (NID, BSSID and SID).
We map- Coverage and Speed tests for Verizon, Sprint, Vodafone, EE, AT&T, O2, 3, TIM, T-Mobile, Telcel, I WInd, SFR, Wifi and more
MyMobileCoverage Smartphone Application users will be able to:
• Map and view the exact locations of dropped calls, failed calls and congestion spots
• Measure data speed and performance
• View the live status of network signal strength
• Share coverage metrics with your operator to help them improve your coverage!
What sets MyMobileCoverage apart from other coverage applications is that we measure and display real coverage from real users, one user at a time and we never interpolate data. Our technology is simply more accurate and we work directly with wireless providers to improve your mobile experience.
We are looking for "virtual engineers" to download the application and help drive-test your own wireless network. Uncover coverage deficiencies and help measure the performance of various devices and operating systems. Join the thousands of virtual engineers already helping to improve wireless networks around the world with MyMobileCoverage!

Nextivity Coverage Tester
Nextivity Coverage Tester let you quickly and easily survey the 3G coverage in your home or office,
so you can find the best place to put your
Cel-Fi Window Unit.
How should I survey my home or office?
To start a survey, tap the '+' button. You will see an outline of your building (Tip: this might be a good time to take a photo of the front of the building as a reminder - tap the camera icon to take a photo then press 'Save').
Tap within the outline to indicate where you are in the building,
and wait while the measurement is made, stand as still and don't move the phone whilst the icon is spinning (Tip: to remind you of where you took the measurement you can take a photo by tapping the measurement and then pressing the photo icon).
Then, walk to a different part of the building, and repeat the procedure, to build up a coverage map.
Once you have surveyed the building, you can go back through the measurements you made to find the best place to put your Cel-Fi Window Unit.(Tip: the measurement icons indicate how good the coverage is, red is poor, orange is better, yellow is even better and green is best).
Does Nextivity Coverage Tester know where I am inside the building?
No. You have to tap at a spot on the survey that corresponds to where you are in the building. If the building you are in is a different shape, tap the place that's approximately right, then take a photo to remind you of where took the measurement.
My building has more than one floor. What should I do?
Use the up & down buttons to choose the floor number for the floor you are on before you take each measurement.
How can I tell which place has the best coverage?
The measurement icons indicate how good the coverage is, red is poor, orange is better, yellow is even better and green is best - look how far across the sweep of colour goes - further to the right is better.
What else can I do with a measurement?
You can add a photo to each measurement to remind you exactly where it was taken. Just long-press on the measurement, then tap the camera icon.
You can also delete the measurement from the same dialog.
I have coverage on my phone, but I see a 'No 3G Signal' message. Why is that?
You have coverage, but not 3G coverage. Nextivity Coverage Tester is only looking for 3G coverage because that's what the Cel-Fi needs.
Can I email my survey to Nextivity?
Yes. Tap Menu then Email Survey. That will generate a summary of your survey in a .csv file, and start up your email app to let you send it.
Can I survey more than one building?
Yes. Nextivity Coverage Tester keeps all of the surveys you do.
You can rename surveys so that you know what each one is, and you can take a photo for each survey to remind you of the building.
Where can I get more help with Nextivity Coverage Tester?
You can find more information at http://cel-fi.com/.

RSSI (Radio Signal Strength Indicator) is the only one indicator.
RSSI, EvDo RSSI, and EvDo SNR(Signal to Noise Ratio) is available.
It recovers the radio waves of the tablet and smartphone immediately by Cutting → Reconnecting the radio waves in use.
This radio waves recovery app is not the type of app that switches the flight-mode On → Off and reconnects to Wi-Fi or communicates the data.
In Android4.2 or above, it is not possible to control the On / Off flight mode automatically as in the usual way.
Due to this change, re-connection of communication is no longer possible.
But as most of the existing radio waves recovery app are of the type which re-connects using the On / Off flight mode, they do not work properly with Android4.2 or above.
As this app is not based on the method of On → Off of flight mode, it works properly with Android4.2 and above versions.
With just a single-tap on the app icon you can disconnect the radio waves being used and then reconnect it.
What is radio waves recovery:
When you move from the location that is out of range or with weak radio waves to the location within the range or with strong radio waves, the radio waves are not recovered immediately.
Usually cell-phones receive radio waves every few minutes, therefore it is possible that you stay out-of-range for a while even though you are in the location with radio waves.
(e.x.) You cannot send e-mails as still being out-of-range, even though you have come out of a tunnel.
You are currently at such a location in a building where the radio waves are weak and you want to find a location where the radio waves are strong, but you cannot even wait for a few minutes to retrieve the radio waves each time you move a little.
With this app, you can send e-mails as soon as you come out of the tunnel, or it is easier to find the best location for radio waves at home or in a building, as it retrieves radio waves at the location immediately.
Recommended for those who want:
- An app which supports Android4.2 or above
- A radio waves recovery app which works properly
- A non-resident radio waves recovery app
- No troublesome settings
- An app which works with one tap
- An app with no advertisements
How to use this app:
(1) Install the app.
(2) Tap the app icon.
(3) Disconnect the radio waves being used and then reconnect it.
(4) The app automatically completely finish.
(No need to install widget)
