An app which is providing data for a BBC survey into the UK's 3G coverage has notched up 33,000 downloads.

The results will be collated and offered via a clickable map to give the first glimpse of what a 3G UK really looks like.

Veteran tweeter Stephen Fry has given the project his backing, encouraging "UK Androiders" to download it.

Epitiro, the data measurement firm that developed the app, said it had addressed concerns about battery drain.

"We have a new version of the app which doesn't test continually but for four hours at key points in the day. It stops testing if battery life drops below 30% but can test continually when a phone is being charged," said Iain Wood, a spokesman for Epitiro.

The app will provide data to show where the UK's 3G notspots are.
