    RootMetrics CoverageMap

    This seems to have disappeared from the Play Store.

    I can extract/copy the APK over, but I'd rather use an app getting updated.

    Recommendations please? ideally best of breed for crowdsourced test data...

    of course there is always a risk but there are the third party apk mirrors, i tend to trust aptoide but i also always install on something other than a main device first to test and see permission prompts, etc.

    Well in this case the app is only useful so long as thousands of users in my area are continuing to upload ongoing test results, or even leaving the data collection going as they drive around.

    CellMapper seems the modern replacement, but I dunno how many from my area are contributing.

    I believe they incorporate data from the FCC as well, but again I dunno if that is reliable or not.
