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.

Hopefull i win one!!!!

DeathNoltz

I would like to get one, I would play with it each time a move somewhere, like school, house, friends house and determine which place has best recepction :D

berrysqueezer

It has been interesting to follow the flap around the 'antennagate'. I am finding it as interesting to see programs and a new or resurgence in the app world of a 'need' for programs that measure the signal strength.
I have been on the lookout for one for many reasons but mostly just to see how good and where my signal is good or bad.

thank you for the opportunity to get this one free.

ferddy

This would come in handy, coverage in my home area is lacking...and would like to test the actual strength.

torinx

Verizon service is pretty good all over Denver except at my house, which is located in a low point relative the surrounding neighborhoods. I would like to know the signal strength at my house and talk to Verizon about it - maybe talk them into boosting the local cell tower signal strength a bit (if that's even possible). I would like a copy of your app. Thanks.

pedro80

I need not want...Please!!!!!!!11

arizray

Ntchwaidumela

Since no one at RIM or Sprint can give me an answer to my inquiries about the reception problems with the Bold 9650, this app can may supply some answers...in addition to being pretty cool.

sbwright618

Should be pretty good, wished it boosted signal strength as well.

Ntchwaidumela

Since no one at RIM or Sprint can give me an answer to my inquiries about the reception problems with the Bold 9650, this app may supply some answers...in addition to being pretty cool.

tge33

I'd love to have a copy of this app!

mededitor

I'm getting a new Bold 9650 to replace my current Tour 9630, in part due to the horrible and fluctuating signal on the Tour. I would LOVE this app to monitor my signal on the new Bold over time, which is a great feature.

Since getting the Tour I've become OCD about watching my signal and this app sounds like it will help control my constant signal-watching. I think I'm starting to make my friends crazy as I constantly check my Tour's signal, so this new app could save my pitiful social life! :-)

mdsoc17

Hope I get to try it out

adowhat

yes it is true...i love my blackberry

nanaki2

I could use a copy of this, started to buy, but I'll wait and see if I can win a copy. My signal goes in and out at work, sometimes it just goes into SOS mode, it would be nice to be able to map out my signal. I even have 1 room at home that signal seems a bit bad. I need to know where the best signal is, especially since I use my phone for work and business.

gizmojoc

Nice app lets see im in a roll lately...

HokieWI

this would be fun to watch my signal drop everywhere i need it to work

yanosh94

There are times that you find a program and say maaaaaan this should have been made a while back. ATT should be handing these to all their customers for FREEEEEEEE! Hopefully I can score one from you guys, keep these great apps coming.

thanks in advance !

keep up the good work!

xamdam

I would love to win a copy of this program as i have always wanted to monitor my signal better.

berikutnya

Well, got to say that Steve Jobs brings antenna engineering to new level. Now ordinary people are talking and learning the importance of antenna to signal receiving. Death-grip is another trade-mark of iphone 4. Being able to track signal level is excellent. I would love a copy for my Storm 2.
A nice to have application!

bbesa

Yup, helps to determine if it is a blind spot for the drop call or failure is due to hardware.

akide

awesome!! antennagate would be great on my phone.

blindguy

This is cool. Thanks for the contest.

hooligun
