  • Speedtest.net 3.0 for iOS Released With iPhone 5 Support, New Interface, More


    It sure has been a while since the iPhone 5 launch, and Ookla has promised iPhone 5 support for their Speedtest.net app for several months now. For those waiting, good news has arrived; Ookla has finally delivered the goods.

    Speedtest.net 3.0 is now available in the iOS App Store and not only does it add full iPhone 5 support, but the interface has completely changed. You'll notice the redesigned speedometer and information design, which from a first glace seems a tad awkward from what we're used to, but at the same time the new interface is very easy to get used to.

    From the previous results screen, users can now sort their results by type, date, download speed, upload speed, or ping. Users can also tap on the settings button at the top right to either delete all results, or e-mail all results.

    For the first time, Speedtest.net finally lets you buy out their advertisements as an in-app purchase for 99Ę. Formerly, the Speedtest.net app was freeware and didnít come with a way to remove the ads that were displayed on the interface. At the end of the day, this new buy-out feature is a great option for users that really dislike ads.

    Currently, Speedtest.net 3.0 only supports English, however support for other languages will be coming soon in an update. If you have Speedtest.net on your iOS device already, you can grab the update from the Updates tab in the App Store, or you can download the application for free from this link.

      They even kept the hidden cat when you pull down the meter after the test.

      I did not know about that little egg! Now I should pull it down every time I speedtest, just for kicks.

      They've changed what it says now though plus when you kept doing it after the cat it would show a meme but they've removed that now

      It goes higher than 50Mb/s. The gauge doesn't, but the app will.

      It also only tests wireless speeds, and not wired. So if you're getting 120Mb/s wired, you might not be able to get it wirelessly.

      I got the update yesterday but hadn't checked it out. Glad they upped the speedometer because my WiFi is usually over 30 mbps so it goes off the chart. lol

      Did anyone else notice a speed increase? I average 1-2 Mb/s faster with the update

      Lol. How is an app update going to increase your wifi speed.

      If you're using an iPhone 5, it's probably the fact that the update adds support for the iPhone 5 hardware. It was inaccurate before the update.

      Not wifi, 3G, and because it selects better severs so it gives you a more accurate reading. Thanks for being a smart *** though
