Ratings and Reviews
The app is very limited with 5 international, NY or San Fransico server locations. As stated in another review, if you live in or around one of the supplied cities it might be of use, otherwise, it will report slow speeds mostly due to distances. The app owners would do themselves a lot of good by adding more server locations. I don't intend to spend the time to enter into "terminal" and screw around with scripting to creat something that should come with this apps.
For "$1", it is wasted time and money.
Not very accurate for true tests
Don’t know about previous version but this one does not seem to give very accurate number (tested against others that have been verified). Part of this may because it only gives you about ten locations to test from so if you don’t live in New York or Chicago you can’t hope to get true values. I have a confirmed speed of >85Mbs but this test does not give me more than 15Mbs. Granted you don’t have much of a choice for the Macbook pro but this is a little pathetic.
Does What It Says
Very simple interface that does exactly what it says in less than a minute. Checks upload and download speeds. Works well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
