I'm not sure how accurate the map is. Since the when using the data test, it records my phone's original carrier, even when I'm roaming. This and the fact that data points from, for example, Verizon Wireless end up in Canada. And I'm pretty sure Verizon will have none in Canada. Besides this nitpick of things off about the app. The app overall is very usable and useful.
Obviously either Verizon is in control of the results or only Verizon users use this app. Hexes update with data points but map itself does not. Several months and no map update. Open Signal has way more users.
It needs landscape mode for tablets. Would be five stars with landscape mode
New update You must have a bug in this version as cannot send any testing data points back. Ui is very poor and unwieldy. It took several attempts to get the settings to open on both a S3 and a S5 mini. The previous version of the app functioned much better than this one. Additional on 09/11/16 app failed to carry out 2nd of a 3 test sequence. Tells me I have no coverage when all is working. Vodafone network.
Speed test fails after even the slightest hiccup in the data connection, including cell changes, often making speed tests impossible to finish. Speed test doesn't continue in "continuous" mode after even a single data "failure". "Continuous" mode is now restricted to only 21 tests. UI is worse than before. Overall this is a huge step backwards for this app.
Its a good app, the company root metrics website shows more comprehensive information and its more accurate than depending on the carriers coverage map. It would be nice if they could add the capability to capture GPS locations where you drop calls or have data loss. Only at&t has a cell drop reporting app and tracks that metric. Not sure if they do anything with the reports but its nice to know its tracked
