"This app exists mostly so that Android fanboys like myself can humiliate dweebs with their brand new iPhone 4 by showing them *graphically* how good a signal we have and exactly where the tower is compared to our location. 'What, you only have 1 bar? There is a tower right over there. Maybe you just need to hold your phone differently. Weird.'

"In the image, I'm golfing with my boss and showing him that there is a cell tower right nearby the Country Club with a very strong signal. I'm not sure why his iPhone couldn't get a signal. I let him beat me at golf to help heal his hurt pride."
