Add this app to your lists
Small widget showing:
- Operator Name
- MCC (mobile country code) and MNC (mobile network code)
- Speed (HSDPA, EDGE, LTE...)
- LAC (Location Area Code)
- Cell-ID
- Current dBm

Each information can be hidden.

- Configurable Text color, size and opacity.
- Optional notification
- Notification without widget
- Action configurable when touching widget or notification

Other Features:
- Auto collect new cells. Cells are named with the celltower location, but the name can be changed.
- Option to flag certain cells as home cell. When enabling notifications and connected to a cell which is flagged as home cell, the notification icon becomes a house. This can be useful for people who can make cheaper phone calls when they are in a certain area. The cells have to be flagged manually since there is no way to do this automatically.
- Show cell position on map
- First seen and last seen time for each collected cell
- Import/export cell database
- Toggle flightmode (up to Android 4.2)

- INTERNET: Cell location lookup
- ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: For getting LAC and cell id
- ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Detect if device is in flightmode/offline
- WRITE_SETTINGS: Toggle flightmode (on devices lower than Android 4.2)
- READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Import database

    nice to see user sugested changes actually being implemented by a dev. take it to next level? i was looking at the notification and it doesn't help much to see just "cell" and have to scroll down for details. i would place instead by default signal strenght to be shown and give users the option to change to show Cid or Lac (or alternate that text every say 3 seconds). i take it finding those cell

    Would be great if it had a signal strength indicator instead of just numbers
