OpenSignal for Android

App: OpenSignal

Publisher: OpenSignal, Inc.

Cost: Free

OpenSignal is a wonderful tool for characterizing both Wi-Fi and mobile signals. It integrates with Google Maps to give you good detail on the cell you're connected to and those nearby, along with very effective WLAN reporting and test utilities. I'm floored that this one is free.
