Why does CellMapper need so many permissions?
"make and manage phone calls" - This is required to get low level network data from your device
"access to device location" - In order to map and contribute, we will need to know where the data was recorded from your device.

Older versions of Android:
android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION - To get CellID information
android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - To get GPS location
android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - To get Cellular network information
android.permission.INTERNET - To connect to server to download map data / upload data
android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - To write external CSV file if no internet connection
android.permission.READ_LOGS - To read Samsung Field Test Mode data on Android 4.1 and earlier (despite what the dialog says, the app cannot read your browsing history unless your browser write it to the system log)
android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE - To read info about airplane mode / network settings
android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED - To start at boot time (if enabled)
android.permission.VIBRATE - To vibrate on CellID change (if enabled)
android.permission.WAKE_LOCK - For phones that do not support 4.2+ CellID Support, to ensure they report correct data
android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - To write external CSV file and debug report

App ChangeLog

  • - Fix 5G SA Cell ID being cut off on Samsung devices
  • - Fix TAC missing on 5G SA Samsung devices
  • - Update frequency converter with latest 5G bands

requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

read Google service configuration
Allows this app to read Google service configuration data.

    I gave CellMapper ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ because it does what I want when I want it. Normally I've had good signal while wandering the Southwest, so who cares where the cell towers are. But when the signal is weak I want to know so that I can "aim" my mifi device using my RV as a collector/reflector to concentrate the the signal. I seldom use CellMapper but when I need, I need it.

    beta does not show my own records. Usage is a bit confusing. Existing data would be useful but I do not understand how to choose the operator and network type and possibly certain mast coverage measurements. All in all quite a useless app as such.

    o2 Used to be good, not so much now. When I first started using the app, it added the data liked they advertised, within a week. Sometime during the summer, my data stopped showing up. I complained, and they suggested I try the premium service and data would show up within hours. All it did was return the weekly updates for the first month. By the second month, the data is taking about a month. I've now cancelled, and I'm not sure I'll do anymore collections. 2020/03/05: there data updates are good

  7. Craig Ferguson-avatar

    iphone Not very useful since it points to a tower and does not give me the latitude/longitude or a relative compass bearing. Just a general direction. Like all the other apps in this category, just a waste of time.

    premium UI scaling doesn't work correctly. UI cuts text when text or display size is set bigger/larger than "normal" from Android settings.

  9. Bill-avatar



    5g Never seemed to collect any points/towers/cells even though SIM was connected to mobile network and could receive calls (no outgoing calls as no credit on PAYG but that shouldnt make any difference to gathering network data)

    apk Great concept but poor execution. Collected data does not show up on the map. We the users are doing the app makers a favor by collecting data. But if it does not show up what good is it for the user.

  20. Emily Reynolds-avatar

    Emily Reynolds


    All I want to do is locate my nearest cell tower so that I can determine if a signal booster will work for my apartment. Websites recommend this app over and over again. I installed the app and it looks like something from the movie the Matrix and requires the app be able to make phone calls and disable power saving mode. Really!? This seems excessive for locating one stupid tower.

  21. Allen Gemmrig-avatar

    Allen Gemmrig


    On my S8 plus and on my note 10 plus data was not accurate showing towers where no tower is (I'm a professional radio tech, so I know where towers are at in my area and even drove to a location it said a tower was, no tower) . Other problem is it would override my screen timeout so it was always on. Tried many things, screen stayed on till I uninstalled this app. That solved the problem. Hope that helps people.

    The app is great does what o want and does it well. However, the battery drain is crazy. Which make sense because it use so much GPS. However, I cant find a way to turn the app off, even when not recording it drains my battery just as much. There should really be a way to turn it off besides turning my GPS off. Edit:12/6/18 found out how to kill it, there is a drop down menu in the notifications bar, one option is exit, this makes my experience much better!

    Latest version of the app keeps turning my phones lock screen on over and over again. This causes my battery to rapidly drain. I've had to remove the app from my phone as a result.

    very interesting app with a lot of options; however, the stupid ad at the bottom annoys the heck out of me. It reminds me of android from 4-6 years ago. Give me the option to donate, pay some money for the app, etc (non subscription) and i will give 5 stars and re-install. until then i will use other apps.

    It has a few minor issues. But it's great for showing you exactly what cellular signals you're getting. But my favorite feature is that it shows you where your towers are, on a coverage map, along with where you need to go if you need a signal and don't have one. (The big drawback here is that you have to have a signal to even see the coverage map.)

  26. Johann Heidel-avatar

    Johann Heidel


    Worthless map. Doesn't tell you anything.. wants you to tell it where towers are, when you want to use app to find towers not the opposite. Asinine; I wasn't looking for a pro bono job as a tower hunter!!

  27. Toni Debord-avatar

    Toni Debord


    Seemed OK at first. But didn't explain enough to a person with limited operational knowledge. Needed to be able to actually input my carrier. Also, I just wanted to see the closest towers to me to decide which provider I would like to switch to. I am on Total Wireless and it seems to not be a good choice for my locality. I think this app is great for very knowledgeable people but, I think for a newbie, not as much. Great job for who it is designed for. Wasn't a fit for me. 😕

  28. Jared j-avatar

    Jared j


    if the app is running it's pulling all the data it can. I can't make the app idle in the background without it sucking down my battery heavily. Even if i turn off data logging. I like the idea of this app but it needs to be less aggressive with how its done. opensignal does this much better (albiet less detailed data)

  29. D Hanke-avatar

    D Hanke


    Completely Useless! It's like a toy. It pretends there are cell towers where there are NONE! Itcan NOT locate the towers when you park right next to one. If we, the users, must map them ourselves what's the use? The FCC map, available online, is accurate.

  30. Michael Hunter-avatar

    Michael Hunter


    Awesome for mapping coverage and showing advanced info like the tower ID, sector, band info etc... -1 star because it occasionally forgets my login and have to re login but not a big deal. Awesome app and better than all the other coverage mapping applications like Sensorly or OpenSignal etc...

  31. Raymond King-avatar

    Raymond King


    Love this, some people need to understand that the app needs to be mapped and it won't be accurate with just one pass, but if you know where the masts are you can add them which I have done it's also fun mapping lol.

    This app works fine and it gave the technical data fine... but the cell locations are inaccurate, the information it shows while technically correct is wrong, mapping doesn't work. Traveling with the app does nothing towards updating the map. There are better apps for the information you can get from it. If the mapping was accurate it would be worth it, but every tower I looked at is in the wrong location and the app cannot update the map or location on the map. I tried the app again, it is s battery hog and doesn't allow the screen to fully dim and still does not give accurate tower locations

    Not showing cell towers. Shows little green squares along our road where other cell strength maps display red. Red agrees with my experience as our area has very poor signal. Buying a Samsung signal booster for Verizon . Otherwise 1 or no bars here.
