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.
As a crowdsourced service, Sensorly gathers anonymous data from all its users willing to share their experience as carriers’ clients, just like you. The aim is simple: provide the greater number with unbiased information on wireless networks performance (signal strength, coverage and speed) worldwide, based on real data, and translate them into coverage maps for all to see.
This free app hands you the key elements to fully understand your carrier’s quality of service, making it the adequate companion to your wireless life:
-Check out precise and daily updated coverage maps: with more than 300 wireless networks mapped across 50 countries available in the app, checking a carrier’s coverage has never been easier for all 4G/LTE, 3G, CDMA, GSM and Wi-Fi technologies. Plus you can check how others do around you, and see what’s the average download & upload speed in your area for your carrier.
-Do a Speedtest: as a smartphone user, what is your network speed like? This feature allows you to instantly check your download and upload speed along with your ping time, reproducing your basic mobile activities.
-Compare carriers performances: the Sensorly app not only grants you access to the data collected on your carrier, but also to information about carriers available in your area. By using the “compare” feature you will be able to check signal strength and network coverage for all carriers listed and for which we have data.
-Map your neighborhood: use your commuting time to map your close environment with the Map Trip feature, and get more accurate data for the areas you care about.
-Check your activity: Are your speedtests getting better through time? Are you a heavy contributor and map your carrier’s network a lot? Do you sometimes have dropped calls but don’t know why? See all these data for yourself by consulting the new “Your activity” session of the app.
Sensorly is a crowdsourced service: the more you use the app, the more precise and complete the info and coverage maps get.
Join Sensorly, and know what to expect from your carrier!

Still looking through everything...
I love this app and use it tons. I would love to see to spark coverage though.
Also, although it uses unified mapping interface (background Wi-Fi) it will not work with trip mode in the background if the screen is off (and needs GPS). This makes it useless for bicycle trips. It would get a five for the mapping function which beats
Is better than a lot of the crap out there.
