CellMapper is an Android app (iOS is not supported) that displays advanced cellular network information for a device's current connection including the specific tower the Android device is connected to. The app can also record cellular data and tower information to allow you to contribute to Cellmapper's crowdsourced coverage and tower maps.
The app and website (cellmapper.net) display coverage, signal strength, cell tower locations, and individual tower sector coverage and bands. Using this mapped data, the app can show which specific tower your phone is connected to and can aid mobile users in finding local towers.
The app is only available on Android and older Windows Mobile devices. iOS is not supported because Apple does not allow apps to access the detailed network data that Cellmapper collects.
