Antennagate - Monitor your signal strength - 50 free copies up for grabs!

antennagate

Seems like every few days since the iPhone 4 launch we have heard something new about the "Death-Grip" signal issue, and Steve's pot-shot at BlackBerry has ruffled a few feathers, prompting developers to bring out apps like Antenna Meter to help BlackBerry users refute his claims. Newest on the scene is Antennagate, but instead of focusing purely on your current signal strength based on how you're holding your device, this app actually tracks your signal and maps it over time. Very useful if you are looking to see where the best signal is in your home or office, or even around the area you live. You can even use the application to map the Wifi signal in your home, a real bonus for those data-concious people that prefer to run on Wifi. Available in the CB store for $4.99, you may want to check it out if you are interested in how your signal strength compares during your daily routine.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Antennagate to give away! Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

I need that to defend my Bold 9700 from Steve Jobs!

HTC_Droid_EvO

I want to keep track of how many apps I have to delete before my phone stops working.

diirk

Great idea for an app. Looking forward to trying it out!

mattpowell19

Thanks crackberry

sameer.majithia

I want one ? can i have it pls ?

mjmillman

For some reason my Blackberry Tour loves to lose the signal on the wonderful Verizon network. This even happens after all their wonderful updates. Please let me win this so I can track it and prove it to them!!!

jdub20

Love to win on my favorite website!

Epic800

This would be great to have!

Antennagate is the app for me!

sundance5

I'd love to be able to better identify hot/dea spots!

carlesgd

sign me up please! thanks!

bamakid366

I sure hope I win this. $5 for an app that I will only use once or twice maybe thrice is a bit much for me. But the screenshots look very nice.

Clem84

I'll find out with the app!

dirt619

- would like to keep track of where at my office building I have the best signal, some areas. I have no bars and some I have full. This app would be usefull to me.

pschmelter

Yesssss!!
Sign me up!!!

Razor213

Send it to me im Ready.

flyersfan76

I know it didn't start on this site but Why oh Why does EVERY story surrounding a controversy have to end in "Gate." Way over used. I actually heard Pigeon Gate this morning. ugh.

My turn. AT&T= SignalGate or CallDropGate. But those can be used all year round.

redman8

Nice, I need this I always have 1-2 bars in my house.. :)

bolese22

Boy do I need this tool.
I live in BFE...I am a high school principal....and I need to know where on campus I can make or receive a phone call on my BB...this tool sounds AWESOME.

BajanDude

I would love a copy. This would do me so gd

Spiral_ouT

Thanks for another contest. As always, you guys rock!

CarlSandbag

Don't know why one would need a gate around your antenna, but I'm game!

PCgirl

Sounds great! DRATW!

m14k

Hope i'm not too late,

Oncampus2k

I'll take a free copy! This APP looks like it would come in handy at times... My house is a maze of signal issues. Some rooms I can use it, some rooms I can't. And definitely can't use it while holding it to my ear with my shoulder. That's out of the question; so I have to keep it on speakerphone or use my Jawbone.

Does anyone already have this or an app like it? Thoughts?

otaku2

When I am out in the mountains the T-Mobile coverage varies from one spot to another, sometimes by 10 or 20 feet.

winterlager

Would love to know where the best spots are for reception!

Sidesplitter

This would be awesome - certain places in my office (unless standing on 1 foot - LOL) I lose signal.

unsentimentalclarity

Weak service here in the poconos... Can't wait to see how the signal here really compares to the signal back in NYC! Wonder if the bad service here is the cause of some of my battery problems!

jetskiracer2107

Sweet! Love testing new products!

dementio

This would be great to use to prove Steve wrong once I upgrade from my 9700 to my 9800 in 10 days

JCap734

Sounds like a useful app. I'll gladly take one!

dezdon

The squeeze the cellphone is helping adolescents boys around the world with thier favorite past time.

Coffey123

Please give me a copy...Thanks

JAKrzysztow

I want to be part of AntennaGate!

TxMudSlngr

That would be nice to have. This would be great to see the areas around my work place, signal is up and down all day. Sign me up please.

kwksti

Sounds like a great app - I would like to be able to map the signal strength in my area of the Great White North.........seems to be flaky for no apparent reason.

thanx Ken.

dookieball87

Every Blackberry needs this cool app! And good luck to blackberry and its future gadgets! :)

vandeleigh

I would enjoy seeing how the wifi signal is around my property. Ty.

zeldascorn

This would be a great application for my bold 9700... Free copies rule!

Enzo83#CB

NEW BB's will be the BOMB!!!!

user2

pcwiz13

Count me in! I've been trying to map my signal strength for years!

Sashko

That definitely sounds like a mighty saweet app.

hyperscorpic

Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!!! That would be a nice app for me to tinker around with! Always loving a bit of tinkering =D

elliot2112

ba_hamilton

Hook me up with a copy please.

tons-q

Cool! Gonna use this for teasing my iphone 4 user friends! :D

bshaffer#CB

My browser didn't work for 2 weeks when the iPhone 4 came out. Let's show those limey bastards what we're made of!

batrad

How different is this from the free CellMon utility ? I use that when I travel to log signal strength when we do campus Cellular buildouts ..

This would be another handy tool to have as well

rosemr

Since I started my new job, everyone around me uses an Iphone or a Droid phone. It is very strange because I have tried both platforms, and perhaps if I was 16 & a huge Justin Bieber fan, I would find these phones "really cool"

However, I use my Blackberry Curve 8900 and I love this phone. Ever since I was introduced to Blackberry back in 2005 I have been hooked. It helps that I don't like Steve Jobs or his products, but the Blackberry is more for an educated person...while the Iphone & Droid phones are really for the unwashed masses.

khatzkidenzx

Nice application.... this one help BB user to get high signal... thanks for helping BB user... Thanks BBC for more helping us....

Nubsis

the antenna gate... bad joke from steeve and co.

Firefighter0793

Being a reception fanatic this is a great app.

jbaile07

I'm in a kind of low coverage area at my house so this would be great to know where to sit my phone to receive calls.

Shilohjerry

I would like a copy of Antennagate! I am using SIGCON that is on sale in the Crackberry store and it is awesome! But I would also like Antennagate!

http://software.crackberry.com/product.asp?id=69256&n=Sigcon-%28WiFi-and...

nuccifamily

Even if there aren't any iPhone-type issues with signal strength, this app could come in handy! Sweet.

thefinks

You guys here's your chance to make me happy again. Gimme a copy I really like this one

AshHaushaltswaren

i would like to win this app! ;-)

crazywabbit

nice app even works on dinosaur 8330

bigblackchair

The dinosaurs would like antennagate to check their signal strength, and also monitor incoming asteroids. They also think antennae make them look distinguished.

cybernal

this is really good for my bold!

Domin8her

Can I have a copy please? I'm meeting my bud, Steve, for a coffee on Saturday and I know he's like to see what a real phone is like. Many Thanks!

servanthands

I'll Take a copy. Thanks

vazgon

I'll be great to get one

jasongary

This is exactly what I've been waiting for. :)

lilhvn4me

I NEED to try! I'm constantly searching for signal in my house, it drives me bonkers!

Thanksssssss again for another great contest, CB!!!

Pibe38

Look like an interesting app...

CLYDERYDER

Sounds very interesting.!!

tkusa71

I really dont know if signal bars on any phone are totally accurate, Ive been with ATT and now Verizon and with both carriers Ive been able to make calls with hardly no bars, and not make calls with 5bars, in short does it really matter what the meter says, as long as you can make that call...

Firewalker96

This would be a cool app to have.

Duct Tape Panties

hook me up, i would love a copy of this app

richt

Antennagate aside, This looks like a great tool to track your coverage in the areas that you travel most. Would be great for anticipating what sort of signal you can expect and plan your usage accordingly. Knowing that you will have better transfer speeds if you wait till you arrive at "X" instead of struggling at "Y" will be a great help in keeping the stress levels low.

Sign me up for a copy

parman929

this would be great to have. pplease pick me.

ubuntudroid

Would love a copy of this. The signal in my house is very shoty, so it would be nice to know where in the house I should have my conversations.

kfroese

I have pretty good coverage where I am but tracking wifi would be very useful since I just moved and haven't found the optimal spot for my router yet.

2006jeep

its free i am all in pick me

funk420

I'd like a free copy of antennagate please :)

Camoberry

Reception in my house stinks. Maybe I could find a better place to use my phone other than the kitchen with my right arm at a 45 degree angle and left leg at a 30.LOL

Rob_Ish

I have this little deadzone in one spot in my room which is very strange. Weird little nuances of cell coverage...

Dext77

Razkull

Count me in .... Thanks

iamjimbo

I'm in a regional part of the world where good comms are hard to find. I'd love to see just how well the service holds up out of the town and validate my choice in mobile handsets.

TonyLibations

That'd be very helpful to know where the signal is the best in my city since it's soo big land wise and varies so much. It'd also be cool to know where my wifi was best at home, mostly just because I'm a nerd like that ;-)

KCCause

I would love to map out my signal strengths!
