Glove fits users with the best carrier based on coverage needs [App of the Day]

Glove fits users with the best carrier based on coverage needs [App of the Day]

So your contract is up and you’re ready to switch to a new carrier, eh? Or, maybe you’ve gotten so aggravated with your providers data speeds that you’re ready to call it quits.  Before you sign any long-term agreements or commit to a particular wireless carrier, try out Glove.

As the name implies, it “fits” the user with the right provider. Glove runs in the background of your Android device for a few day and keeps an eye on where you use the device most often.

Using crowdsourced data the app is able to determine which network gives you the best reception. As you may already know, a lower data plan isn’t necessarily all that great if it’s slow or inconsistent.

Not only does Glove make a recommendation but it even hands the user off to the carrier, making it easy to switch.

While all of this sounds awesome, it’s worth pointing out that this is only available in two select markets: New York and San Francisco. Here’s to a swift expansion!
