Terms and Conditions

1. inPocket Software grants you a license to use this app for your personal, non-commercial purposes on your mobile phone or tablet. It is revocable and non-transferable and does not transfer any rights in the app to you.

Phone Signal Information is a free app.

Phone Signal Strength Information is a paid app and requires a purchase for each user.

2. You may only use this app as a download from the Google Play Store. You may not use this app through any other installation mechanism, including, but not limited to, ‘sideloading’ the app from a computer, USB drive, or non-Google website.

3a. Privacy: App functionality: The Phone Signal app collects some information about the Android device to display to the user. Such as phone identity and cell phone network.

This information is not shared and is not stored on a server.

3b. Privacy: Location: The Phone Signal app requests use of the Android Location permission on startup (first use). When the permission is granted by the user, the app will collect data using this permission in the foreground and, when granted by the user in the background (when the app is not in use).

The location data collected is the identity of the cell tower the phone is currently registered with, and signal strength information about this cell and neighboring cells. The app uses this information to display signal strength, cellular tower and cellular network information to the user. If the user grants the location permission in the background, then the data displayed to the user will include data from when the app is in the background. For example, the signal strength graph over time will include the signal strength when the app is in the background. This information is not shared and is not stored on a server.

If the user sends a debug report to inPocket Software, some of this location information will be contained in the email and will be used by inPocket software solely for the purposes of debugging a problem with the app. This information is not shared.
