Review from Doug Oriard
Useful app but it would be better if it showed the lte band you were on and highlight the connected tower in the map. I use Signal Spy to see band useage. Also it disagrees with LTE Discovery on which tower the phone is connected to.
My daughter just moved to Santa Cruz AREA of CA. Going 2 college. Best network down here BY FAR is VERIZON WIRELESS (her roommates have Sprint DOESN'T WORK AT ALL) & Metro (tMobile network) spoty AT BEST. They share Netflix & Hulu using my daughters Unlimited VERIZON Hotspot (what they save on their cable bill) pays for my daughter's VERIZON Hotspot. I switched to Verizon cause I come here once a month (to bring the girls Supplies they're Poor College students LOL)
Based on having used AT&T and now Verizon in a fringe area, this app gives an accurate representation of device-reported signal strength. I switched carriers based on open signal reports from my area and found out what everybody already knew: if you want rural coverage, go with Verizon.
Doesn't work in my area. Seems to have me connected to a tower that I don't think exists and the compass points in a different direction, the signal strength is sometimes shown as 5 bars on the app and 0 bars and a 'no service's notification on the phone. It also shows poor wifi sometimes when I have a good connection but I only wanted the app to check the different mobile provider's signal in my poor signal area
LG m154 Cricket, android 6.0.1, freezes. 'Reported', "need more error msgs to assist debug". Los Angeles area so towers are not the problem. Sure wish this would get fixed. Cannot tell if phone or Cricket problem. Sure wish I could help but with no error msgs I cannot.
Well... need some fix... how can there are two "Setting" in the Menu Option (the three dots) ?! And how is possible there are towers in the middle of the sea or lake?! (Which i know from the gps position lat and long, there are nothing at that point). The app using google maps, which sometimes are not accurate in most unregistered/unmapping area). BUT AT LEAST ITS FREE from ADS. 👍
On the cell towers map my local tower doesn't show up, and I am looking at it outside my window, about 5 miles away. Outside my area, the number of towers in local area should all show up on map; few do. App otherwise seems to be good. Down from 5 stars to 4. Update , the fix to show the towers didn't work, still will not show towers.
- Missing towers fix part 2
- Fixed bug where the line to connected tower wasn't visible
- New navigation icons
- Quick action shortcuts for Android 7.1+
- Updated French and Russian translations
- Background performance improvements
- Fixed memory leak (towers/speed test history screens should load much smoother now)
Tired of slow internet connection which keeps on getting dropped? Time to boost!
