Default Signal boost

There are some apps that boost your signal or reception for the better.
Which one is the best?

ive tried a couple of these apps and i quickly found that i need a way to keep track of signal strength and get a "baseline" before i use these apps to see if they work. Try RF signal tracker, open signal, and or network signal info as your testing app...hit me up if you cant find them and ill help....now comes the signal boosting apps....give me a few minutes while i find them

open signal maps by staircase 3 inc, rf signal tracker by ken hunt, and network signal info by kaibits software are all pretty good apps to get info on your 3g, 4g, wifi, and other signals. also consider Sensorly by Sensorly.com,
All of the above will give you all the tools you need to determine if the boosting app you find really works or not

These signal boosters - can they harm the phone & why do most of these apps include a legal disclaimer about not being held liable? Any clarification would be appreciated as I'm not wanting to do something. To my $600 phone that isn't reversible.

I use Fresh Network from FreshAppleLife. It seems to work pretty good, but I'm gonna try some of the others listed here to see if anything improves.

here is a couple of screencasts of scientificish experiments i did with two apps that claim to give you a boost. See which one passes and which one fails
