    "I've been using this but haven't noticed any difference. The app seems to be working fine, but I can't tell if it's making much of a difference. I wish there were a way that the app could show me how much it's helping my phone's performance but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that."

    "This product doesn't boost your network signal, however, it finds nearby network or worldwide hotspot connections for you to compare. You can walk around to find a signal strength that is excellent. This app would be perfect for users who are constantly on the go or cannot afford their own internet. Unfortunately I was linked to the app to the itunesstore, which does not support android platform which would render it useless, even though there IS an OpenSignal for the Android."

    "Sounds too good to true right? An app that can improve your network signal? Well, it is - sort of. When I tried this app in a poor signal area, it really only improved my signal by one bar. So - from one bar to two - it was better than nothing!"

    "Found in the google store this app can alert you to all the WiFi in the area. It puts out a "radar" signal, so perfect when you are trying to save on data, or are out of town. You can also bookmark the WiFi sites so you have them available for next time you are in the area. After the radar signal goes off, you can pull it into a convenient map so you know exactly where you need to go. "
