The Signal Finder application provides the opportunity to see the coverage map on the Android device, showing where the nearest towers are available, for the best cell phone reception, as well as the signal strength of the towers located. Your device will be online using the map of free Wi-Fi networks.
The application will continue to run in the background and uses some crowd-service techniques to improve both the cellular and Wi-Fi coverage maps.
* Complete redesign of the application
* New Google Maps with 3D map capabilities
* New coverage display mode - heatmaps that combine both cells and signal strength measurements
* Support of Wi-Fi hotspots
* Fixed issues with CDMA network detection on some devices
* Other small fixes and improvements

Good app, but drains battery quickly. This is a neat app. I like the maps and seeing the various covered areas. My problem is with the battery usage. In a matter of a couple of hours, my battery was drained by almost 10%. For the very battery efficient Sony Xperia Z3, that's some major usage for a single app. That is with the Battery Saving setting enabled for the Location setting for this app. If there was a polling option to limit this every 15, 30, 60 minutes, then that would be better I think.
This Works!!! But. Only one problem though,it really drains the battery fast. It keeps gathering data in the background ,even if it's not active. U can dismantle this is in the app settings. Only thing, it won't work if you turn that off. This doesn't allow the device to sleep if you want good signal.I only complain about battery drainage,it works great, but that's the biggest problem.Oh,in order to disable that feature, you have to disable the adds by paying them money. $4.95
Paid for it, can't disable data collection I want a refund. App says if you disable ads, then you can disable background data collection. That's simply not true.
Feels like a student project Very superficial app, mostly glitzy but no depth. No documentation to be found anywhere, no real feedback or bug tracking mechanisms, no onboard help. Uses a lot of battery power and requires permissions without any explaination as to why. While it does seem to find nearby towers and displays them on a Google map, it does not report any details about the tower other than something called an ID. But there is no explaination as to what this is, or how to use it to find additional information about the tower, such as where it is located exactly, what services is provided at that location, who is the owner, what freqs were found etc. Nor is there any info on the technical aspects of this program and how it works and gathers what little information it does present to the user. Apparently developed by a software consulting firm, but as a veteran software engineer with over 40 years of experience and a Masters degree in Computer Science, this is simply junk software, IMHO, and has all the feel of a 1 term student project developed by someone with very little experience in real world software application development.
Never stops searching I can't see reception because the app never stops searching for cell towers, even when I remain in one place.
Does not work. I have 5 towers in my area and it will not show them
Shows all the towers, but don't show which ones I'm connected to, uninstaling
Signal finder I don't know if it's working yet on my Samsung Galaxy Ace.... Haven't really checked the app out all the way. Still just have one reception bar. For now.
Not a bad app. Would be nice to have a way to close it and not having it run in the background.
Great app I use it as my primary cell phone tower locstor. We are full-time in a RV and work part-time, so it is important that we know which direction to "point" our external antenna.
Very nice and detailed! Just an issue with displaying info on the cell towers. And the annoying `run in background' mode. Otherwise good.
Didn't work for Galaxy Note 3
Crashes constantly Great idea, but seems to crash fairly constantly on 5.0, possibly made worse by use of the widget.
It working, but ...but my WiFi can not connect when this app active
Wow it works It work here in Milwaukee, Also my cell carrier is not one of the big one.
Searches, never shows towers The app sure funds where you are , but searches and searches for towers and never displays them. Waste of time.
Kinda works Says your connected to a tower which is a start but actual location is not even close. Says its on a house nearby in a suburban area lol
Cool app Nice for find.the closest tower signal ..speacialy for directed.antenna
Found no nearby towers after 15 minutes searching.
Can't find cell towers on Samsung Mega. Uninstalled.
show Wrong Data ..... i Still recumended Don't use this app , it totaly wast of time
Showing only towers...its OK app...but don't install ..
Crap Doesn't work in ireland. Waste of time
Works App works fine, just cant determine network provider, to see what is the best network from the closest tower
Ignu Very very nice app
?? Towers in the lake, on the highway, and other spots that are bogus
No good Just a static image of map and nothing else
Tower serch Only shows the tower I am connected to
It works Tried a half dozen tower finding programs to use to align repeater antenna. This one did the job seconds after I installed it. A keeper.
This app is sexy Boost and sprint mobile is best
Pretty useless. Identified two towers, which couldn't possibly have been where the app said they were.
Good. But it doesnt work with dual-sim phones.
Cool! Really cool!
Doesn't work I live in pittsburgh and it doesn't show any towers with in 10 miles.. but yet there is one 1 mile from me...
Sucks Just keeps searching that's all it does don't waste your time
Loved it Whenever I want a good signal I just drive out where the towers are in the my phone tells me where it is
Not support to my new samsung .. core2
It Works Purdy Good It works
Latest update has not fixed the problem of connected tower being indicated. Towers are clearly shown but no way of telling which tower I'm connected to. A pity because otherwise maps are brilliant. If this problem could be fixed the app would be great.
Awesome... But Could Be Better This app shows the map version as well as the satelite version of the nearest towers.. The Only thing is that plz show which tower is it and the carrier of the tower.. Other wise... Its just mindblowingly accurate
Doesn't work Doesn't show cell towers. This used to be such a great app. Since the new versions have come out I no longer get the cell towers or signal strength shown at all. I am using a Verizon note 5. I will keep it through one more update hoping that the bug will be fixed. It is totally useless to me in its present version
It sucks Its just a crap dont install. Doesn't display a single tower.
Bad data Shows towers inside my neighborhood where none exist.
Need An Update We need an update which will show distance between Connected Tower and mobile as was in previous version. Otherwise it's useless. Please update it ASAP.
Good But background processes not working
Can't find me! It always focused on my neighbors house and I even walked outside and it still could not pinpoint my location it was about 30 yards off!
No Tower or Signal Strength The app only shows WiFi hot spots
Used to work, kinda Before the latest update, it would at least show towers. The tower location was not always accurate, but at least it showed you something. Now since cell the update, it doesn't show any towers or coverage map. Stellar job.
Last update does not work correctly Constant screen message" insert valid sim card to see data", does not show towers, places me in wrong location. That's enough for me.
Update*still* doesn't show any cell towers near Trooper PA near Norristown on my Galaxy S5, even tho' it shows 2 bars Also doesn't use my location to automatically zoom to my location. USELESS
Update a downgrade This app worked good before the recent update. Now it does not work.
No longer working. . . "Location not found" on Samsung 4. Was looking forward to signal strength feature.
WHAT HAPPENED?! No longer shows locations of the tower/s! Older version worked perfectly!
Don't work anymore Used to be a good app now after the update does not work.
I PREFER IT THE WAY IT USED TO BE I think that this app worked better the way it was before. At least I could see which cell tower my phone was connected to. This new version just isn't cutting it, as far I'm concerned. But, I plan to keep it in hopes that these so-called improvements will be fixed or something, or just turned back to the previous version which actually worked.
It's a neat Google Map App I see a nice Google Map but I've lost the tower locations that were in the old version. Updated this morning. I have a Galaxy Note II with Android 4.4. Loved the old version. Bring it back please.
Doesnt work?? Shows nothing?? Note4
This updated no see signal tawar ,gsm, place chak your new updated , help me
Please change update Was working before now not working at all
Huh? I see nothing. Looks like a map app to me. No towers signals or wifi. Is it my phone or what?
No way to get cell ID of cells on the map …and please also allow entering random cellids so we can find them on the map.
Use To Work This app use to work perfect till last update...now it does nothing.
Update not working
After update new version cannot see the connected cell tower. But the old can see cell tower Please i want the cell tower line back.
Downgrade Signal strength map is difficult to read. Colours are not very different. Gps can be found by app. So can not locate towers in use
New update made it not work After the update it doesn't show the towers anymore. HAD TO UNINSTALLER IT!!!!!!!!!
Inaccurate info Did not show either of the cell towers I'm usually connected to when at home, or a third nearby. Only shows towers along highways here. Uninstalled.
I was looking for an app to show me where the cell towers are and how strong the signal. Am I missing how to get an Azimuth Bearing to the tower? I simply want to know the exact degrees from where i am standing to point a direction antenna to improve my signal. I was setting up a booster for someone and I had to drive to the antenna a few miles away and save the lat lon in my phone under a gps essentials app, then use it to determine the bearing to the tower after returning to my setup location. The app knows where you are via the gps, it knows the lat long of the tower, it should easily be able to calculate the bearing from your position to the towers.
Signal finder Slightly interesting information; however cell tower locations are completely wrong.
Question There is a tower that keeps moving locations, but always within a two block period. Is this something thats being picked up and mistaken for a cell tower? or are the locations just approximate? Is it one of those fake towers?
Doesn't show cell towers Using a Verizon note 5. Since this new version came out a few months ago cell towers and signal strength don't show at all, only WiFi shows . I had hoped that updates would fix the problem but no luck so far. What gives? Please fix this problem as this used to be one of my favorite apps
Hostile activity My health is deteorating and I just found our that I'm under attack from some powerful signal. Please help me
Good but Wish you could see which network each tower was
Completely Inaccurate No data appears on the map. Using a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 running Android 5.1.1. Will uninstall after submitting this review.
Good But it needs improvement.
Everything works, almost Cell tower locations aren't always spot on. For example your map put a tower in the middle of Lake Dillon, Colorado......
Could be better. Not showing signal strenth for towers and who I am connect to.
Doesn't show cell towers and signal strength I'm using a TextNow phone, and the app didn't work from the beginning. Only the wifi works.
Tower missplaced I got information of tower location different in real location in maps for about 5 km wrong place
I was using the old version and i just updated to this redesigned one. The widget is gone. Now i cant know the signal strength unless i open the app and turn on location. FAIL.
New user, app doesn't work All I can see are WiFi symbols on the map. As another person said below, nothing else shows up. All those colors and such shown in the example maps are non existent in the app, I tried waiting a few minutes after switching to say, tower mode but nothing. ((GS7edge)) I've downloaded 4 apps so far looking for this info, haven't found one yet that's fully functional, this one actually came the closest.
Straight to the point And that is an as t.this app is. No frills, no manual to study or learning curve to get over. Simple and very effective.
No tower and can't see the location at all in this apps... Need improvement or update...
