Signal Strength Widget v0.1.4

I was surprised to find out that there were no decent widgets for showing signal strength in the Android market. I was not able to find any widgets that provided all the functionality I was looking for so I created my own. Here is what I created:

Feature List:
  • 10-bar visual signal strength
  • Numeric signal strength (dBm)
  • Network Operator
  • Data activity indicator
  • Network Type indicator
  • Supports Android 1.6 - 2.2 (hopefully...I have 1.6 so I have only been able to do much testing on that platform).

Update:  Updates are mostly to the UI.  Everything was moved to a more portable UI layout.


  1. Cool Widget! Sadly my provider´s name is too long. There's a line break and .de get's cut in half. Works fine on Android 2.2 (HTC Desire) so far.

  2. Have just stopped working when I upgraded to 2.3 (Not surpising since I now see it´s only Froyo or less...)

    Will you do a Gingerbread version?
