Ratings and Reviews
Cell Signal always displays 0%
Unfortunately this app doesn't do the simple functions advertised as the phone signal always displays 0%. However the latency value is usually about 260 ms and does change, but I need the phone signal level.
I have an iPhone 6s Plus on the Verizon network and have tested at multiple locations with different signal strengths. Very disappointed...
Useless app. Has not updated in two years
I have been holding out for this app for awhile now hoping that they would update. We used to use it to check signal strength (cellular dBm readings) for quite awhile... They have not and probably will not update. Don't download.
Expected what was described got less
As of May 25, 2014 this app has an inaccurate description and screenshots. You cannot control the background process nor can you monitor your wifi latency. If you are Looking for a utility to test your wifi network this is NOT it
