CellularInfo for iOS: Beta Released (was Coming soon)


Recommended Posts

iOS has long needed an app to display info about the cellular connection- we have Field Test but it's rather hard to type in *3001#12345#* while driving. ;)

So, I made CellularInfo. Supports all iPhones on iOS 8.2 and below.

For now it simply displays most of the information from the "Serving Cell Info" section of Field Test.

It's in a (closed) beta at the moment.

Some good news. planetbeing never replied, but I've gotten CellularInfo to work on my own on jailbroken 8.4 with some fake code signing and entitlement magic. The app is working perfectly. I can't say

Thanks for stepping in for me, AJ and Robert! The OP sent me a PM within minutes of you guys posting and PMing me as well. As I mentioned somewhere around here a couple of weeks ago, I'm not able to g

An awesome start! What do you think is causing the weird bandwidth measurement?

Probably just my interpretation of the data I got from iOS. It was just giving me one number, so I assumed I needed to split it in half to get a download/upload measurement. I now realize that that's not the case.

 

That's a beautiful sight. I actually like the layout of that widget. Do you have any shots of the actual app?

I do, but Tapatalk image uploading seems to be broken, not sure why. The app looks exactly like the widget right now though.

EDIT: Imgur'd it: http://i.imgur.com/qmvRJUTl.png

 

It ain't pretty. Not yet at least

Just FYI, mikejeep holds at least the de facto trademark on "SignalCheck" for a mobile app. So, no offense, but staff must consult and decide how to handle this thread.

 

AJ

I'm completely willing to change the name, of course.

I applaud your efforts.  mikejeep has said in the past he doesn't have the resources to do an iOS app.  So I don't believe he will be anything other than happy that you work on the project.  I think he has even encouraged others to do it.  However, the use of the SignalCheck name is completely up to him.  Hopefully he will weigh in with his thoughts soon.

 

Maybe he even will want to work with you on it?  I make no promises, of course.

The name should be different since it is done by another developer.

The following are name suggestions might might work...

ICheckSig or iCheckSig

iOSignal or iOSignalCk

 

i for iOS and the rest is self explanatory.

I think I'm just going to call it "CellularInfo". Nice and simple.

You might also run into trouble with that.  But iCellularInfo gets no hits on Google search.

 

Great work!!

I just don't like putting i in front of things. :P I'm sure CellularInfo will be fine. A search in Cydia & the App Store doesn't produce any results that could cause an issue.

 

EDIT: I don't seem to be able to edit my original post, but can a mod at least change the title to something like "CellularInfo for iOS: Coming Soon"?

Thank you AJ for bringing this up, I was thinking Mike has started development of an iOS version of his wonderful app, apparently not.

If you need design or usability help with the app, that's what I do for a living - I'd love to help, even if I can't jailbreak due to my company's AirWatch MDM solution.

I'm hoping to keep the UI relatively simple, but I'll be sure to contact you if I run into any issues.

 

Jailbroken iOS user here. I travel weekly so have opportunity to hit MANY different towers over the course of a week. Let us know when this bad boy hits a repo! :)

I can guarantee that when it does, S4GRU will be the first to hear about it. ;)

Do we have anyone that knows how to build a custom carrier bundle, or knows how to modify the stock one to do different things? Since we're all jail breaking/re-jail breaking, I'd like to see if my band switching problem can be resolved with something custom built. Maybe if the thresholds can be changed to switch to band 26 sooner? Let me know; I'd be willing to pay a little bit for one.

Here's a question since you're an Apple developer. Is the iOS environment that closed off that you can't develop a non-jailbreak version of this? I'd love to get this running on my iPhone, but it is tied to Airwatch and I don't want IT to give me a call :)

    • A ton of them are from Extenet which afaik is Verizon's primary small cell partner here. I also see a bunch for Mobilitie which was Sprint's primary partner and Crown Castle which is T-Mobile's primary partner. I wonder if T-Mobile plans on contracting both for small cells going forward. If so, that's a lot of combined potential small cells, though still less than Extenet. By far the least are New Cingular which is likely AT&T. The wildcard is Transit Wireless who seems to be branching out of the subway system and is deploying quite a few new sites.
    • NYC DOITT database was updated about a month ago. Imported all the new oDAS node locations into my map. Haven't yet spotted anything with the new design in my travels through Williamsburg & Bushwick. Almost 1400 newly proposed nodes (since 3/5/21) is pretty incredible, though. Made my way up to Harlem and City College this past week. The site (eNB 55893) covering the north side of the campus STILL hasn't been upgraded from B2/B66 (dual APX16s). Pulled ~70Mb/s down on what is essentially an empty campus. Wish I knew what the deal is with that site. I almost wonder if it might be easier to work with the school and keep the Sprint site on top of the engineering building (Steinman Hall, across the street from their current site), instead.
    • Just saw this permit for a very rural area:  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/21110744CBP/Snohomish County It sure looks like a T-Mobile site number (SE01794A) and mentions "ADD 2 ABIL FOR N1900 N2100" First time I have seen a permit mention n1900 or n2100 (would this be n2/n25 and n66?). In fact, I searched all of the major locals on that site and not a single other permit mentions n1900 or n2100 (and none mention n2 or n66).

    • That's a good point. Everything costs money and Sprint just didn't have enough to spend on its network to be truly competitive vs the other carriers. Sprint's heavy debt load and the insufficient support it received from SoftBank really prevented Sprint from getting ahead of the curve enough to get breathing room.... and for these improvements to be substantial enough, consistent enough and timely enough across its network to have a meaningful impact on customer gains or retention, which is ultimately the measure of market competitiveness.
