Network Cell Info

 

The ultimate network cell signal information tool (only for Android devices).

 

 

 

** Network Cell Info, and Network Cell Info Lite android applications are distributed exclusively in the Google Play Store ** 

   

 

 

Network Cell Info is a cell network monitoring and drive testing tool. It is the first Android app providing separate signal-meter (VU-like) gauges for the serving (registered) cell, as well as for neighbor cells. It covers all cellular networks including LTE, HSPA+, HSPA, WCDMA, EDGE, GSM, CDMA, EVDO.

 

Features (of Network Cell Info):

  • LTE, UMTS and GSM Cell locations from Mozilla Location Service (MLS), along with location accuracy
  • 6 separate signal-meter gauges for the serving (registered) cell, as well as for neighbor cells signal strengths
  • 6 parallel signal strength (dBm) vs. time plots of the serving (registered) cell, as well as neighbor cells
  • Cell measurements logging in files (under the map tab)
  • Measurements database export types: MLS Geosubmit v.2, CLF v.3, OpenCellID csv, (and our own) CMWF
  • 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)
  • Network drive test: Route coloring (in the map tab) according to the signal strength, and map markers with location and signal info
  • 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)
  • Connection Statistics: see the percentage (Bar Plot) of 2G/3G/4G connection times with cellular Data ON or OFF
  • 2G/3G/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 neighbour 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 (Marshmallow) Run-time permission requests (location access is necessary for the app to work)
  • No dual SIM support yet

 

Differences between the Lite and Full App Versions:

The full version of Network Cell Info has the following additional features compared to the Lite version:

   - No Ads
   - More (6) gauges total
   - Up to 6 neighbours tracking (in Gauge and Plot tabs) 
   - Up to 1000 measurement markers and 1000 MLS cell location markers in the map (lite version has limited number)
   - Map memory caching, incl. measurement and cell location markers (provided you exit app through power off)
   - 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)
   - Larger time-window of the measurements (in the Plot and Map tabs)
   - MLS accuracy for cell locations
   - Screen landscape view

Phone issues:

Please check here for current issues, especially for Samsung devices: http://goo.gl/Hy0dx5 . Please feel free to give us any issue feedback along with screenshot.

 

GPS:

It is highly recommended, for best app performance, 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) 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 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) in one of the following 4 formats:

a. CMWF v.1 (our own) with header: radiotype,radio,mcc,mnc, area,cellid,unit, lat,lon, signal,extra, acc,time, speed,bearing, alt,api,device

b. OpenCellID csv with header: mcc,mnc,lac, cellid, lat,lon,signal, measured_at,rating, speed,direction, act,ta,psc,tac, pci,sid,nid,bid

c. CLF v.3 with row entry: mcc+mnc;cellid; lac; rnc;lat; lon;ratio; data;rfu

d. our legacy one

 

Dual SIM phones:

There is no dual SIM support yet.
