Support for positioning using Mozilla Location Service is coming to Sailfish OS, so the natural next step would be to let users contribute back by using an app that maps cell IDs and WLAN access points. A native app for this would be great. Some thoughts of what it should do:

  • The app should let the user select what kind of data to collect (cell IDs and/or WLAN access points)
  • It should be easy to review the data that has been collected before submitting the logs
  • Optionally have automatic data reporting
  • Preferably show collected data on a map
  • If possible scan for all cells, not only the one currently registered to

I tried Mozilla Stumbler for Android, but I'm not sure it is working. I could only try it on my Jolla tablet since my FP2 is lacking Android support, and on the tablet there were no visible APs and (naturally) no cell IDs, and the map wasn't working. But even if it was working properly a native app would be better.
