After last update any data points you use your data plan to get is not being put on the maps. Even the new map on the website is not working, you click on a hex with color and recorded data but it says no data is available. This update is broken. Should have tested it before putting it out.
It is like rootmetrics ignores feedback in reviews or something because their latest update doesn't follow a history of introducing just bugs or poor UX decisions in fact this is the buggiest release yet and the UX is terrible. Overlays are hard to close and requiring navigating backwards versus being user friendly. White text on light backgrounds makes readability difficult and as others have pointed out it seems rootmetrics is not populating data collected because in my neighborhood still showing bad T-Mobile service despite great coverage and speed tests over a period of months now. Maybe Rootmetrics is just a Verizon shill?
Need Unlimited testing pls - LTE+ should be a technology I want it unlimited tests please had it before why not now plus it doesnt even say your data usage off the tests i have unlimited so... I should be able to test constantly. constantly is constantly not how it is now plus if you could by chance make it run in the background drawing n testing data that would be great for now looking back to the old apk make it so also theres a check markif you do or dont have unlimited
Continuous testing no longer continuous Before one could test for up to 4 hours on end but with this latest update the continuous test is only able to do up to 21 cycles. Please bring back the 4 hours option or add TRUE continuous testing without any limitation. With the current 21 cycles max the app has dropped down from 5/5 to 2/5 stars as I cannot leave it making continuous measurements unattended. PS the background collections don't offer full continuous scanning either so no cigar there, either..
My Mobile Coverage still #1 Root Metrics drops to 4th. It improved by eliminating big hex overlay, added back the logical traffic light colors for voice, but still uses terrible blue/red color scheme for data. And it eliminated continuous tests. Sensorly 3rd tied with Open signal maps & Cellmapper. Coverage mapper distant 5th but no longer supporting/updating, and cellumap a distant 6th. But we should use all of them at the same time to create evidence carriers can't ignore. Each collects different data needed to see network problems.
Another terrible backwards "update" New interface is absolutely horrible. Almost everything about it is less functional and more annoying to use than the previous version. I've never understood the stupidity required for a company to feel compelled to "update" a perfectly functional peice of software into a broken, ugly pile of crap like this.
• Improved user interface. Our updated app not only boasts a beautiful new user interface, but it also makes it easy to find and select the options and settings you want to use before running a test.
• Get a broader understanding of your findings with new stats such as moving averages, histories, and more.
• Easily select multiple hexes on the map to compare your results, and find out if others are having the same experience.
• Test how you want, when you want.
Tired of slow internet connection which keeps on getting dropped? Time to boost!
