Google Maps – Estimated Departure & Arrival Times

The most popular app for Maps – Google Maps – now has estimated departure and arrival times built-in. What it means is that if you are planning to leave by car, tomorrow at 11 am to go to a certain destination, you will get an estimate of your arrival time, today. Conversely, if you have to reach a certain destination at 3 pm for a meeting next Thursday, you can get a prediction of when to leave, based on the traffic conditions normally found on that day and time. Of course, it will not be able to predict any major incidents / blockages that may actually occur on that day.

Once you select the departure and destination locations, the Set depart and arrive time option is available under the ‘Menu’ icon (three dots) at the top-right corner of the Google Maps app.

Now plan your trips sensibly and always arrive in style, on time!

Open Signal – measure your data speeds

OpenSignal is an award winning app,  packed with features to help you accurately measure the everyday experience you receive on your mobile network. It includes download speed, upload speed and latency test, test speeds on cellular or wifi. It also retains a history of speed tests, visualized on a map or list.

The speed test allows you to find out the location at which the signal is strongest, and also compare cellular and wifi speeds. Network availability and speed stats are stored and listed based on your own experience as well as the experiences of others – whether on your own service provider or on other networks.

Coverage maps are available for all operators and zoom in to street level. The coverage maps are based on the signal experienced by users. The data is collected by crowd sourcing and is fairly representative. You could use this information to download maps before visiting areas with weak or no signal.

Overall, a very useful tool to understand your mobile connectivity efficiency.
