Speedtest.net app gets a new look, iPhone 5 support, and more

Speedtest.net app updated, show us your results!

Speedtest.net Mobile Speed Test has been updated to version 3.0. The update brings a new look, iPhone 5 support, and some new features. The interface is now less cluttered than before, sporting a more modern, clean design. Additionally, Speedtest.net is now compatible with the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5.

Other improvements include easier results sharing, improved server selection, sortable results, and a $0.99 in-app purchase to remove advertising.

So now that you have a proper Speedtest.app, download it, and head on over to the iPhone 5 speed test forum thread and post a screenshot of your results!

Wow they finally changed their dated dull UI.

lbaxter says:

I like the new look, but I hate seeing how pitifully slow AT

asuperstarr says:

Wow, I love this app. Glad they updated the app for iPhone 5.

thefivetheory says:

They also updated the easter egg. It seems poor Ookla the cat has moved on.

chrishull says:

I'm addicted to this app ever since I got a 5. I love looking at the LTE speeds around Atlanta.

wHoKares says:

Great to see that they updated the UI. Have had this app ever since I got my iPhone4. One more
app added to my list when ever I get an iPhone5.

maccauk says:

The best app ever in my humble opinion. :-)

kremsku says:

The first app I've ever done an in-app purchase in!

Definitely worth it.

samsin92 says:

I like the new look. It needed the upgrade since the last one.

SFCMM_Spuds says:

Use the app. And hoping new app works just as seamless

kingskid1 says:

Great. Now can I get some 4G to test it.

jayzero76 says:

Speed test I don't really care about speeds and hardware. When a phone works than good and if I need to wait a second okay

draztikrhymez says:

I really like the change that was long overdue

shinuyuki says:

I love the new look; however, the more important part is they updated their server selection which is incredibly important.

Madhav Pande says:

Finally! The new app looks so much cooler and fresh than the old app. Also, now you don't beed to use FullForce for iPhone jailbreak tweak to make the app fit the 4 in. screen.

Nathan Grey says:

I'm glad for the update, especially the iPhone 5 support. I have used speedtest.net for years. Now if it would just quit getting my location wrong by 5 states.

south50 says:

Too bad I don't have 4G LTE. My data speed is always poor on this test.

JXChain says:

I think the new UI is great.
R.I.P Ookla the cat :(

ernbrdn says:

I can't believe anyone gives 2 cents about this UI. I don't think I've ever kept it installed on my phone longer than 5 minutes at a time. I feel if you spend enough time with this app to worry about ads or UI you have bigger issues. Network or otherwise.

rbiro says:

Too bad it can't test cellular when your on wifi - that way it could do both (AT

Rossce214 says:

Love love love this app! The new look is super sleek and beautiful. Just a welcome update to an already great and appreciated service!

flipish5 says:

good update. Much needed!

SkiPPy087 says:

New look is very cool. Just goes to show how a little refresh in UI gets people excited.

Ryan Ruben says:

This is a useful app. Like the new UI.

kingskid1 says:

Nice look, but the bug for location needs fixing though.

Andrew Lima says:

It's most likely just me, but the update seems a little more buggy.

jethr0 says:

I had been using speedtest before. They got some issues with my device and I feel that I am not getting accurate information. I guess it's time for me to try it once again.

linsiris says:

Have been a user of the app (and website) for many years. It needed the update asap! glad they finally did it, it's a lot less cluttered than the old one.
