The data it shows is nonsense I like the idea but the information is very unreliable. The arrow points in a different direction to where the map shows I am connected, the power dial shows high data connectivity even when the phone is on the edge of 1 bar of reception and calls are not possible. Even standing underneath the tower I was supposedly connected to (I couldn't see the tower) I only had 2 bars of reception. I fear that this unreliable information creates an unreliable coverage map.
Bugs/laggy The splash screen is sometimes shown when returning from the cell map. Also the display meters in the main screen are not always updated showing ie wrong distance to cell even if the map shows correctly and is fixed by force quit. Also seems to get slower by the update
Really useful app I use it almost every day. Genuinely useful for finding good coverage areas and comparing networks. I especially like the ping stats as it is low ping (network latency) that really makes a connection feel snappy (as opposed to raw throughput, as some networks would have you believe).
Used to be perfect, but latest update on 5.07.2016, still has not solved the problem of the line showing which tower I am connected to being missing from the map. Towers are now also missing but map does show my location. Hope these issues can be fixed because the app was great when it worked
I liked it on first impression... But the map of cell towers never populates. It shows my current location but never shows any towers. Map never loads. **Edit 7/6/16 - cell tower maps still never load. Disappointing since it's the main reason I'm trying this app. Really wish this issue would be fixed. Also, why is there always running processes for this app, after restart, and app not initiated after restart? Ready to uninstall until devs fix.
Permission agressive. Well, I'd suggest you review the terms of usage for your program. It's getting me the impression of being watched over my shoulder constantly.
v4.14 – Maintenance update (bigger changes in development!)
Perhaps the nicest fixes in here are on the stats tab:
- the graphs for time by network type now update with each reading that comes in
- you can now see stats for data collected segmented by time period - this wasn't working previously
Update: added fix for map crashes
