Sensorly allows you to see carrier's 2G, 3G, 4G and WiFi coverage based on recordings made by users
You cannot be over WiFi all the time since there isn't a developed structure which allows it, specially in the outskirts. So you need to use your 2G, 3G or 4G connection sometimes and we're pretty sure you have suffer low coverage inconvenience. Sensorly helps you to find where the best coverage points around you.
Sensorly allows you to compare carrier's coverage and signal quality of any location in the World. Millions of recordings made by Sensorly users throughout the World make it even more reliable. You can only report indoor locations with poor coverage, which is pretty useful, specially for cafes and public locations.
You can set the data collection level to improve the database of Sensorly. Take into account that the wider data collection the more battery it will drain (don't be scared, it isn't intrusive in other regards).
The app really works. What's more, it is set in a good-looking layout and user-friendly interface that makes really easy getting the hang of it very quick. High recommendable.

Great idea for an app, if more people used this, then we'd have a great reception and speed comparison tool between carriers
Exessive battery drain
Since your speed test and latency test servers are only on the coasts, without any servers in Dallas, Chicago, or Atlanta, results in the entire center of the nation are terribly skewed negatively.
very useful apps - excellent
Needs more work though. Map said I wad not in a 4G coverage area for Sprint yet I have 3 bars and 15 mbs from the built in speed test. If the map was correct I would definitely use this app.
Keep track and record evidence of poor speeds - or good ones if youre lucky enough
