I think it should have an option to choose different signal spots instead of only last. I work in areas with little or no service in the oil fields and you can lose signal if you turn your head wrong. Perhaps an option to cycle found signals in the area

Backup plan

This could be a good last resort backup plan.

Leaves location services running...

While it may be in a "low overhead" mode, this app apparently leaves Location Services active even after the app is killed. (i.e. NOT running in background.) After you've run Bootprint once, you will always see the Location icon. Even after a hard reset! The only way to disable this is to go into Settings and disable Location Services for Bootprint.

Doesn't work

This app didn't work for me at all and the location services stayed on even after I closed the app all the way down. So it doesn't work and it drains the battery even when it's closed. Don't bother downloading this piece of.....

Its something you hope you don't need to use, but if you did get lost, I think it could help a lot, i did get lost once hiking, got lucky that time, I think this is a good backup app.

Nice idea

Good idea using that new feature for safety, it does seem to track the cell towers.

BEWARE !!!

IF YOU ARE LOST THIS APP COULD LEAD YOU TO YOUR DEMISE. I have passed through a familiar area for the app to store all the connecting tower info. Later that day I revisited the same area knowing where all the live and dead zones were. I activated the app in a dead zone not far from a live zone. The app indicated that I would have to travel [through wilderness of extreme ground] over 7,000 meters to reach a tower whereas, just 33 meters in a different direction [paved road] I would have reached cell phone service. I also activated the app in a different dead zone, 10 meters from the aforementioned live zone, it kept instructing me to travel in a direction where the distance continually increased to over 1,300 meters in which at that point I ended my test. I know the app does not recognize terrain but, as tested if there was a genuine emergency my welfare could not depend on this to lead me in the right direction.

Nice idea

Good twist on using that new cell tower feature in iOS 4, I drove around testing out where the cells are. I think the guy who wrote the comment about the location arrow doesn't get it. This app uses that new feature that Google talked about, it does not use the GPS, it only checks for tower changes in the background.

what about 3G?
