Description

Directly overlay and compare cellular carrier coverage maps! Perfect for travelers - research where you're covered across the USA! ** Follow our Facebook page to get update alerts: http://www.facebook.com/CoverageMapApp, or check our support page** Coverage? focuses on helping mobile bandwidth junkies find cell signal as they roam. Save time looking up coverage on the carrier's websites, compare their claims head to head and better plan your travels to stay connected. ** The carrier's maps in your pocket: This app contains regional level maps based off of each major carrier's data map - as found on their website as of our last update. Quickly overlay the carriers you use to create your own personalized coverage map on your device. ** No internet needed: Our proprietary coverage maps are stored within the app on your device - no downloading needed! Quickly access where you're supposed to get a signal, even when you have none. ** Urban and rural areas: Maps are at a regional level, and cover the entire continental USA, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. ** Carriers included: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular. ** Know where to roam: view LTE, '4G' (HSPA+), 3G, 2G and roaming areas as overlays, focus on finding the coverage type you desire. Check http://www.twostepsbeyond.com/apps/coverage for a quick video demo. We created this app because we are full time 'technomads' ourselves who rely on mobile data to work remotely. Keeping this app updated is a priority for us, as we depend on it ourselves! -------------- Coverage FAQ: Q: Why aren't the maps more detailed or released more often? A: Our map updates require a lot of meticulous labor intensive processing. There's just no practical way to issue a new update everytime a new tower is turned on. We monitor new coverage and try to find balance between effort & staying current. This generally means at least a couple updates a year. Q: What makes 'Coverage?' unique? A: There are great apps out there that collect user submitted signal reports - we recommend them and use them ourselves. However, those apps are only useful in markets with an active user base. We took a different approach with Coverage? - we needed a tool to at least give us an idea of where signal should be - urban, rural, and out in the boonies. Sure, carrier maps aren't a guarantee of where signal actually is, but it sure is helpful to know which direction to head when you need it! -------------- Named 'Essential Tool' by Wired Magazine ** Winner - 'Most Useful App' - iOSDevCamp "this app can be indispensable" - Lifehacker.com -------------- The maps in 'Coverage?' are provided in partnership with Mosaik Solutions, and represent proprietary interpretations of the coverage reported by each carrier. You should not rely on the maps in Coverage to be perfectly precise or absolutely timely. Ongoing map updates have been free - but to support the ongoing development costs, we now allow customers to subscribe to higher resolution maps that will be updated more frequently. Coverage does not report or predict signal strength (there are great apps out there for that!). We can make no promises as to where you'll *actually* get signal.. there are too many variables - towers, device, terrain, weather, etc. So… Got Coverage? Additional information about The HD Maps Subscription: This is an auto-renewable subscription, with a duration of one year. The subscription fee will be charged to your iTunes account upon confirmation of purchase, and will automatically renew each year unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current subscription period. Current subscriptions may not be canceled during the active subscription period; however, you can manage your subscription and/or turn off auto-renewal by visiting your iTunes Account Settings after purchase.

Rip off

You get nothing for your purchase. For it be usable you have to purchase a subscription. They have a “free” version that is the same. So what are you buying? Nothing
By Fracka

Useless! Don’t waste your money!

Don’t buy! Map shows I should be in a full coverage area and I have no signal! App is a piece of crap! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

16-Aug-19: iOS 9 users, beware!

Apparently, the coverage maps provided are contained within the app, not downloaded on demand when accessing the app. The good news: You don't need cell data or an Internet connection to look at the coverage maps. The bad news: The maps are updated only when the app is updated. (They have added a subscription service which might change that, but most of us use this app once in a blue moon, meaning that the subscription price would just not be worth it) (Think about it: When would you use this app? Only when traveling AND when you may be considering switching cell phone service) But that is a second piece of bad news: As of this writing (16-Aug-19), the current version of the app is for iOS 10. This means that those of us still using iPhone 4S or iPad 2 (iOS 9) are stuck with out-of-date coverage maps. Given the structure of the app, I do not know how they could fix it, if they wanted to. I do know that, as a reference tool I might use once or twice a year, I do NOT want to get involved with a subscription service. On the other hand, on my iPhone SE, I fully expect that the coverage maps are up-to-date. I just have to stop using the app on iPad 2.

Absolutely indispensable

We spend half the year traveling around the country in our RV. It is imperative that we have connectivity for our consulting work. We regularly use this app in determining our camping location. The app makes it so easy to see if we will have the coverage we need. Bravo to the developers!

Helped us decide.

The app is extremely easy to use and allows you turn off and on different carriers and services. Allows you a quick visual of overlapping or nonexistent service for our great country. This app helped me sort through the complicated balance of what mobile phone carrier, considering coverage and price would be best for my family for our particular needs. It most definitely saved and will continue to save us money by not overbuying a carrier service for our needs. When we begin our adventure later this year. Will be adding a second carrier service based on the research from this coverage map. That information should help provide us with not only convenience, Internet comfort but also another amount of personal safety. Thank you. Mel & Linda
