Excellent! I love this app! It was of great help when i needed to figure out where to set up my external antenna (and what direction to point it in). My only problem is that the "dots" on the map are tiny, to the point that I sometimes can not see the yellow ones at all. Also, I have too zoom very very close to read the numbers written inside some dots. Perhaps it has something to do with the high screen resolution on my Galaxy Nexus? Nevertheless, I'd pay for this app if it wasn't free. Thank you!
Dosnt work wind mobile Canada For a cell provider like wind mobile I'd love to be able to use this but it is not available or dosnt pick up my carrier.. It shows the European wind provider only. And my location is not Canada like Google maps will show me with gps and all. Ohh well it's a bug and hope it works for me one day and it can be fixed.
Fully solves my purpose. I was getting -89 dBs, and still my talk got interrupted too much. And this app clearly demoed the reason to me. In a particular place, my tower keeps changing from one to the other and to the yet another. And yet they don't force you to pay you for any pro function. Thanks guys.
Could not find cell towers. This app reported that I was connected to one cell tower but could not find it. Tried turning GPS on/off. Tried turning WiFi on/off. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app 3 times. It just would not work. My phone is a Galaxy Note 4 with Lollypop installed. My carrier is Verizon Wireless. Would give this app 0 stars if I could.
Walker's aid The most practical use for this app is when you're getting a weak signal and need to know which way to walk to make it work. Only works well on 2G only setting, this is an Android limitation. Is there a better app for this? I haven't seen one yet.
Fascinating! Seems to work well in the UK with 2G signals (ASDA/Vodafone) on my Nexus 4. I haven't tested with 3G. As another reviewer said, the location dots on the map are very small – probably this is an issue with high-res displays. This isn't really a problem with towers to which the phone is currently linked, but the others (yellow dots) are hard to spot. Chasing down the local antenna towers could become a new pastime – like geocaching, only fractionally more useful. If the map could show the networks available from each antenna that would be a handy addition.
