Speedtest.net gets new UI and more with update
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.

Thank you for the insightful comment. They totally forgot to mention that ever so important fact in the article. You just did the world a favor, I mean, how else would have anyone known that iOS had this update?! It clearly isn't stated plainly in the article, and obviously none of these Fandroids would have any idea of anything that has happened on the iOS side of things, because everyone knows whoever uses the opposing OS is a heretic and must be burned at the stake. I'm sure all the readers that have the honor of reading your comment appreciate and deeply care for the fact that you solved this mystery for them. /s

Yeah? And when iOS 7 was pushed, I could have easily said, "Late. Android has had this for years."

Your comment is not very intelligent. For IOS7 and Android 4.2 or 4.3 or even 4.4 are not the same thing. Now if you had said "Late, Android has had a control center for years." Than that would've made sense. Fanboys just need to shut up they are starting to show their stupidity.

It is comments like this that make me wish PA hadn't removed the thumbdown option.

Why because I outsmarted someone? I was a Fandroid from day 1 I was on the T-Mobile G1 when the iPhone was out I was one of the most celebrated haters of that phone. But now a days I have started looking more at the big picture. An the big picture is that each phone has pros and cons. Fandroids, Sheep, everyone need to work together and make a better phone. What is best for me may not be best for you. For example I am a strong Samsung supporter my mother is a LG lover. You guys just need to stop going back and forth about how IOS did this first or Android did this first. It's all irrelevant they are both phones both make phone calls oh well who backs them. He made a mistake I thought it was a stupid comment and I corrected it. If I had gotten here earlier I would've corrected post 4 also but two people had pointed it out already. Now Fandroid back in your cave to mod your phone to make it run smooth. I have been using Android for 5 years now and I know the only way it runs smooth is to mod it. The iPhone I don't know since the last one I used was the iPhone 3G it was too simple but now Android is too laggy I for once am glad to be too broke to have either or.

I can't wait till 2020 when the iphone has the same features as the first droid, and the isheep will begin to complain about it being too difficult to use.

Clearly you don't know me as I'm one of the least biased users on the site. Glad to know my troll comment had such an impact on you. :') -Sent from my MacBook

Why is it that this thing STILL doesn't have a login feature? Measuring speeds is nice and all, but how useful it really is if you can't have your results saved and accessible at one place from just anywhere?

I liked the older UI but it seems that the new one offers more functionality.

The mapping feature is a good idea. It will build a picture of how good the network signal is world wide regardless of which network carrier people are using.
