You can’t yet save data (in version 0.84 beta) but we are working on a couple of ways that you will be able to save and analyse your data.
You can now save data using:
- Export to an XML file on your SDCard
This allows you to export the cells you have recently discovered: their CID & LAC [for GSM: BSSID, SID, NID for CDMA], received signal strength, lat, lng, network ID, network name and various other parameters. This will be a quick way of getting to your data, you’ll be able to analyse it however you like – Google’s fusion tables come to mind. See: Format of saved data
If this sounds a bit ‘techy’ for you, you’ll be relieved to note that we’re working on another way.
- A web based dashboard
Something we’ve been working on (but is still a way off being finished) is an accounts system. This will allow you to access your personal signal data: graphs of your signal strength, maps of where you get good/bad signal, what networks you’ve been using, how much you’ve been using UMTS/EDGE/HDSPA etc. We want to offer tools that will allow you to see whether your network is serving you well or if you could be better off with someone else.
We don’t want to go live with these changes until they’re really well tested, but they’re on their way!
