Network Cell Info is a cell network monitoring and drive testing tool, providing also cell locations in the map and separate network signal strength gauges. It covers all cellular networks including LTE, HSPA, WCDMA, EDGE, GSM, CDMA, EVDO.


Features:
------------

* No Ads
* LTE, UMTS and GSM Cell locations from Mozilla Location Service (MLS), along with location accuracy - http://location.services.mozilla.com
* 6 signal-meter gauges for the serving (registered) cell and the neighbor cell signal strengths
* 6 parallel signal strength (dBm) vs. time plots of the serving (registered) and neighbor cells
* Cell measurements logging in files (under the map tab)
* Distance limit (0m, 5m, 10m, ...) between consecutive measurements in MAP tab (if network doesn't change)
* Location accuracy limit option for measurement logging
* Motion detector with selectable sensitivity options (applicable to measurements)
* Sound notifications when wireless network technology generation (2G/3G/4G) and cell id change (OFF by default; you may turn them ON inside the Settings)
* Measurements database export types: MLS Geosubmit v.2, CLF v.3, OpenCellID csv, (and our own) CMWF
* Network drive test: Route coloring (in the map tab) according to the signal strength, and map markers with location and signal info
* Connection Statistics: % (Bar Plot) of 2G/2.5G/3G/3.5G/4G connection times with cellular Data ON or OFF
* 2G/2.5G/3G/3.5G/4G network type notifications in the notification area
* Concurrent map view and signal-meter gauges
* Map view options: Normal, Satellite, Terrain, Hybrid
* Map memory caching, incl. measurement and cell location markers (provided you exit app through power off)
* Raw view of detailed network signal info, network info, including signal strength, serving and ALL neighbor cell information
* Cellular Data on/off and Roaming on/off indications
* SIM and device info
* Ability to turn off Gauges individually by tapping, to release some CPU burden
* Screen rotation (portrait or landscape)
* Android M run-time permissions (location access is necessary)

* Dual SIM issues:

[BETA] Make sure you enable it in the app settings. Please check here for issues: http://goo.gl/o0SC6j


* GPS:

It is recommended to set the GPS mode to "high accuracy" in the location settings of your device.


* MAP Cell Tower Location:

We don't have own database for cell locations. We use currently the MLS database (please see below) which returns not the actual cell tower location, but roughly an indication of the cell locations.


* MLS:

The LTE, UMTS and GSM cell locations we get from Mozilla Location Service (MLS) - http://location.services.mozilla.com - and show in the map as antennas, are not real tower locations, but roughly an indication of the cell locations (if no cell location is shown in the map, it means MLS has no data for your cell).
** MLS doesn't support CDMA any more.
** If the app doesn't return cell locations, or if you want to contribute/update the cell locations, you may use Mozilla Stumbler app ( https://goo.gl/sysSNQ ) to update the MLS database in your area.


* Measurements' Databases:

The measurements you make in the MAP tab, can be saved locally in your device (please see FAQ inside the app for details).


* Solving Start-up issues:

1. Uninstall the app, and re-install.
2. Perform any pending system update(s), and re-install the app.
3. If your Android/ROM/root somehow modifies the apk, then the app will not work.
4. Turn the internet on, before you start the app for first time (or after long time).
