Review from Ron Souliere
Used to be a great app Used to work great. But last two updates no longer show cell reception, and lock up the app. In one case I to pull the battery to get out of the app.
Tells you what you probably already know. Would be better if map showed exactly what tower you are connected to on a consistent basis. About 1% of the time it does. Also only shows towers if you are getting a 4G LTE signal at the time. No help in areas without. 2G or 3G ?
This has been running on my Nexus 6P with Nougat 7.1.1 and the only problem was a "Ghost" cell tower that wasn't where it was showing one. Now, around a week ago the App is crashing immediately after opening. I have uninstalled and installed it back in several time with no success. I'll give it a 5 star when the crashing stops. I really do like it. When it runs. Edit: Okay I don't know what happened, but we're back up and running. Compass points at connected cell tower but no line on the map. Which isn't a deal breaker for me.
Nice concept but: 1) On the Dashboard the received signal strength doesn't change as I drive around. closing the app and restarting it is the only way I've found to keep the RSRP or RSSI (whatever they're reporting) current. 2) In 4 out of 5 tries the compass on the dashboard led me to a weaker signal rather than a stronger one. 3) The coverage map shows bad coverage in many places that I have full bars and 40-66 Mbps speed. On the plus side, love the user interface and the ability to show % of time on 2G/3G/4G/No signal.
The latest update says it fixes bugs in dual sim collection, but it seems the bugs, at least some of them still exist, for e.g. still it shows information as if data sim is second sim although it's actually the first sim that has been set as data sim. Please fix it. It WAS a good app once upon a time. AT PRESENT it's useless.
Shows you the nearest towers, doesn't let you choose wish to connect to but shows where to get better service based on shared information on local maps. Is a great app and I tried to share it.
Change log - How hard is it to keep it up to date? Thousands of devs on the Play Store consistently do it every day yet you seem to have trouble doing it more once (only after I posted a 1 star rating) Don't bother replying or contacting me - I'm done wasting my time with you. Feb'17: Still up to their old tricks - non existent change log.
Bug fixes for dual SIM collection.
