Most smartphone users are familiar with the Speedtest.net app since it gives the user the ability to check the speed of the network connected to his smartphone. Surely there are some neurotic enough to continually check the speed of the network they are on. A new update, which already was in use for iOS flavored devices, brings a Speedtest optimized for the latest and greatest Android handsets. And if you're sick of all those ads running on the app, they can be dealt with and made to never bother you again, as long as you hand over 99 cents.
A new feature allows you to map every test taken in the results history, and a new version of Speedtest is coming, optimized for tablets. There are many apps out there that claim to do the same thing as Speedtest, but the latter has emerged as the favorite in the sector. And best of all, as long as you don't mind those aforementioned ads, the app is free. Pick it up at iTunes or the Google Play Store.
