APP OF THE MONTH
OPENSIGNAL – FREE
If you need to have a chat over the phone when you’ve just moored up, or want to send sunset pictures from your boat to friends, nothing is more infuriating than finding you have no signal.
OpenSignal can solve your woes: this app is designed to find free Wi-Fi close to you, or direct you to spots that can provide a stronger 3G or 4G connection. Simply turn
on your 3G/4G and location settings and OpenSignal does the work.
If you are thinking of mooring somewhere, you can also use the Speed Test to check whether you can run your online errands without dodgy signalling no more holding your arm out of the window for a better signal.
OpenSignal is free on the AppStore and Google Play.
