Here in the RW community, the “Signal Check” (lite and/or pro) app is quite popular, and deservedly so for all the info it offers. Well, I think I’ve actually found something better. Network Cell Info by Wilysis. It offers more info presented in what many might consider a better format. It includes a number of advanced graphical displays:
Up to six signal strength gauges on a single screen - Active and neighboring cell sites and WiFi APs
Map showing locations of cell sites
Simultaneous plot of signal strength vs time for multiple cells
Other screens include:
- An additional plot showing Signal Strength and Quality vs time
- Raw Data (plain text, similar to Signal Check but offering more detailed info)
- Device & SIM info.
All in all an extremely thorough and useful diagnostic tool for helping to troubleshoot reception and connectivity issues or just for those who like to be in-the-know about the local RF landscape.
Anyhow, I’ve been using it for a while now and am quite pleased. It comes in free and pro versions. The free is probably more than enough for most people, but for a few bucks you can get rid of the ads and get a few more or better features. If you really want to go all out, for an annual subscription, you can get even more!
