I had the same problem (showing no towers) and i read on one of his tweets to reboot the phone and it did the trick. Hope it helps!

I support PlanetBeing by giving him that $5, but this app simply does not work. It's like I paid for a map application apple gives you standard when you buy the phone. I've sent him a twitter message and he replied. He stated to send him a couple screenshots which I did but haven't heard back just yet. I assume that means he's looking into it, in which I'm confident in believing there will be a fix.

I also bought this signal app but it does not work. It wont show your nearest tower.i hope planetbeing will fix it or update it.

I bought it and it doesn't give me any towers of connections at all. Just my current location. I've tried turning off and on all the different connections (wi-fi, data, 3g, etc). There is no 3G at my location, but it should at least find the 2G towers. I do have reception and data. I am very interested in this app, and love to suppor planetbeing. So far it's a disappointment though. Any advice on how to get it going?

Well, I thought this app would be nice to have but as far as I can tell, it is bogus. None of the places the app says are cell sites are correct and yes I do know where they really are. If it is not supposed to plot the actual sites then what is it plotting? I wish there was more documentation. Another thought. Is it possible that the error is on the network side in that it is giving ambiguous data?

Same for me. Several of the towers are plotted in the middle of the lake nearby! Does anybody know where the tower location comes from?

It works great for me!

After having purchased the app I cannot install it. Always getting the pop up: "Size mismatch".

got this app, but there is one issue - my position doesn't update on map - I have to kill app (cause it supports multitasking) only then it updates my current position. It updates towers online still :) hopefully will get fixed soon
Andrew - August 3, 2010 at 6:38am
Why would you want this app?
Dwaine - August 3, 2010 at 7:50am
@andrew the app offer you detailed information on cell towers your connected to & nearby and the connection strenght etc. obviously this app is not for people without some technical understanding.
Martin - August 3, 2010 at 8:35am
Yes, the cell towers get's updated on the fly but the user position only get updated once when you start the application.
Andrew - August 3, 2010 at 8:53am
Really? Whats technical about it?
sidq - August 3, 2010 at 9:32am
