Elegant app with a major flaw
This is the speed test app I have used for years, in spite of a major flaw. The interface is nice, it gives the vital information clearly, and it stores results for later comparison, or in case you need to report data to your ISP.
The major flaw is in the final numbers. Rather than giving an average ping time, upload speed, or download speed, it only reports the last value. This means it could run at 10 Kbps for nearly a complete download or upload, and then accelerate to 10 Mbps for the last fraction of a second, and the app will falsely report a download rate of 10Mbps. This is a serious problem that has been left unaddressed for the lifetime of the app. As a user, I only run it when I can stare at the values as it runs and can estimate an average rate.
The interface and storage save this app' 3 rating, otherwise it would be much worse.
This is great for checking the connection speed of your idevice. Just keep in mind if you have an older router you may be limited by that. Additionally to get a true measurement of your connection speed you want to use an ethernet cable on your PC or Mac. If your router is old, try a test with the cable going straight to your computer from your modem for comparison purposes. I would make sure to continue using the router in the future as plugging directly into your modem without a router/firewall can leave you vulnerable to hacking. Doing it just to run the speed test is fine.
This is the best speed test app out there. When the downloads are slow, you can check your speed. I had intermittent problems last week. The speed was about 50 mbps and at time it would drop to about 5. Tracked this for several days. I finally got hold of the provider and they run me through all the router resets etc. They sent a tech to investigate, he tracked it down to partially fried surge protector in the line. Replaced it and the 25 year old cable from the box. Still check the speed occasionally to make sure everything is ok.
