Real Signal

Available in :
Real Signal "Monitoring" tool. This does not increase reception.

Displays a persistent customizable signal-bar in your notification area (5-bar). It also records signal statistics and graphs for monitoring.

### This uses Android's raw GSM or CDMA signal values directly! ###

How many times have you had 3 or 4 signal bars yet couldn't make a call or even check your email? Many vendors (or carriers) intentionally pad or incorrectly display the real signal power using the devices built in signal-bar graph. This is where Real Signal's power comes in to help...

Real Signal can be adjusted manually or automatically to report a better and more accurate bar-scale. What Real Signal displays is your dBm signal in truth, but I leave the graphic bar-scale control in YOUR hands to manipulate to YOUR needs (with some help)! Great huh!

*** Instructions ***
I've included a general default CDMA and GSM bar-scale which works well for Samsung and HTC devices(probably others too), but Motorola signals seem different than other vendors. You can use the defaults and adjust the thresholds to properly display a 5 bar-signal graph in your notifications or you can use Real Signal's built-in (auto)signal threshold algorithm to set the 5 bar-scale ranges based on your recorded signal strengths. To use this to its best ability, make sure you calibrate Real Signal by traveling through known WEAK and STRONG signal areas before applying the (auto) signal thresholds. Once you get some decent and accurate thresholds, tweak them as needed or leave them as they are. It's your choice!

For general signal monitoring, DO NOT keep GPS tracking enabled. This will kill your battery quickly! It's not Real Signal that is killing your battery, its the GPS receiver.

*** TIP ***
Signals strengths are scaled from low numeric values to high numeric values. This could be negative values from a low of -120 to a high of -65 or something more simplistic as a low of 1 to a high of 31. Just remember, its always low to high on the number scale, including negative number ranges.

**!! This does NOT increase actual signal strength. !!**

Please use the FEEDBACK TOOL in the app for questions or problems. I can't really help if you leave feedback in the Market comments. Thank you!

Strange app Not undestand how to use this

by A Google User the 6/25/2013

Constant notification alerts It's really annoying that this app shows an alert every time the network switches between 3G and HSDPA with no option to disable. It also shows emergency only signal as normal signal. Useless

Precisely what I've been looking for!I have a Moto Photon,always had great results with these devices,however;I have used every service since 1995 from,sadly,again,Sprint to AT&T/Cingulair&T-Mobile.Sprint is over rated,poor poor coverage,ASTRONOMICAL$$!!They show I have full 4G coverage at 8600ft!ROAMING,YET STILL no service!My MAIN SPRINT 'TOWER' is 2 states N.M!I look fwd to using this app! 5 stars JUST for the idea!
