Signal location assistant OpenSignalMaps receives Android update
Whether you're trying to make an important call or trying to download a single picture via a public wi-fi hotspot, your mobile device is only as good as your signal.
While there is no guaranteed method to ensure 100 percent network coverage at all times, free signal finding tool OpenSignalMaps provides an array of useful data to help keep those bars lit.
In addition to monitoring signal strength, the app points you in the direction of the nearest hotspot or cell tower. You can even trace the location of the strongest wireless sources with built-in map and radar displays.
Also, thanks to a recent update, the service is now fully functional on Android Honeycomb devices.
Elsewhere, Galaxy S II users of OpenSignalMaps will have noticed a minor tweak to the app that activates the signal bars, while all users will now receive an alert to warn them when they lose data connection.
If you're interested in putting OpenSignalMaps through its paces, you can locate it in the Google Play Store, where it can be downloaded for free.
